Why an Extra Disc?
Starring: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Willem Dafoe
Director: Sam Raimi
DVD Released : October 15, 2002 (Philippines) and November 2, 2002 (US)

Just because DVDs have been releasing another extra disc to prove that it’s loaded (and an extra USD 10-15 can be added to its price), a blockbuster like Spiderman should follow suit. Well, if not for the upside down kiss of Mary Jane (Kirsten) pulling down the mask of Spiderman (Tobey) only up to his lips which you can liken to a woman pulling down the underwear of a guy and performing a great head – the DVD would have been just a great add-on to your DVD collection. But I like the “entire” film so I have it.

But the extra disc* really just blows my mind. It was a great job these manufacturers are doing to milk money from us fans.

No pun intended.
