How can something this great be TOO long?
30 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

MAKING THE AMAZING is a superb, thoroughly-detailed documentary about the making of SPIDER-MAN 2. Fortunately, for those with ADD, the documentary is nicely broken up into several topical chapters. Interviews with everyone on the cast & crew nicely illuminate what it was like to make this massive sequel. In fact, the documentary begins on a refreshingly bold note with Sam Raimi expressing doubt that he's going to succeed. Right off the bat, MAKING THE AMAZING informs us that this won't be yet another PR-friendly lovefest. It's an incredibly detailed and informative "making of," vastly superior to everything on the first SPIDER-MAN DVD.

I'll never understand people who whine that a DVD has too many bonus features or that documentaries are too long. That's like saying a library has too many books or iTunes has too many songs. This isn't the main attraction. It's all background information for you to learn more about later. And for the curious, you can never learn enough.
