Interesting piece from comics writer Steven Grant in the wake of Spider-Man 2 about the supposed dumbing down of cinema. It meanders a touch but soon gets to the interesting thesis that cinema, as a social lubricant, is all about getting people into bed. I think he slightly misses another interesting point about the rest of the ‘adult’ market existing to fan the vanity of those involved, viewer included – if I do your comic movie can I make my serious movie afterwards?
