This is a feature-length documentary on the Special Edition DVD of Spider-Man 2, and is a making-of on said film. It consists of interviews, behind the scenes footage, clips of both flicks and panels from the comics. Everyone here has got stuff to say, and this is informative and detailed. It goes over every aspect of production and post on something as epic as the sequel in question, and explains the effort put into the designs, the effects, sound, etc. The whole thing is split into twelve parts, so you don't have to watch the entire two hours, and each of these chapters are confined to exploring their specific area, and the title of them(for a complete run-down, simply look at the Trivia page for this) lets you know which that is. This is all well-edited, and the pace is fitting. You get good insight into the creative process that goes into putting such a big movie. The ending is funny, and very candid and natural. There is no objectionable material in this, apart from restating the disturbing notion that Raimi gets an inordinate amount of pleasure out of throwing stuff at, and hitting, his actors for shots and sequences. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the subject. 7/10
