So this week I finally caught “The Amazing Spider-Man 2“, AKA “Didn’t They Learn From Spider-Man 3 Not To Overstuff The Movie With Villains?”
No. No, they did not.
This week I’m reading The Towers of Sunset, by L.E. Modesitt, Jr., in which a young prince (sort-of — I haven’t quite figured out the exact nature of royal roles in this book) decides to skip town instead of allowing himself to be married off to a nearby ruler’s daughter. Because the “town” in question is a castle that’s basically situated in the middle of an arctic plateau, skipping it is a pretty major undertaking.
