Spider-man 2 was great but is it really worth buying the movie again for 8 minutes of new footage when you can easily watch it on youtube? For 5 pounds I'd say it is worth it. The new scenes are:

-Extended conversation with Peter and MJ in the backyard
-Extended part of Peter delivering the pizzas to that woman.
-Extended conversation between Peter and Otto Octavius
-Elevator sequence is different
-Doc Ock and Spidey crash into an office while fighting on the side of the building
-Scene with MJ and her friend, where MJ explains why she's marrying John
-Scene which shows Jonah Jameson trying on the Spider-Man suit
-Added stuff to the train fight like Ock holding Spidey down the side of the train, making him smack his head off sign posts.

There's more but those were just some examples. Spider-man 2 is a very good film and I would definitely get Spider-man 2.1. This used to be about 12 pounds and now it's only 5! Grab yourself a bargain.

...And still one of the best comic adaptations of all time.
Sam Raimi went all out for 2004s Spiderman 2 giving us a memorable villain, improved dialogue, action scenes yet to be topped(The train scene....Wow) and expert direction.
Very few sequels are this good, and even to this day Spiderman 2 is one of the finest Marvel movies ever.
Raimi is so much more confident and improves upon the first in almost every way, without ever pushing things too far, and using CGI much better this time round - to improve the film, never distract you from the film. A more than worthy sequel and the one to raise the bar for the genre.

"I am Spiderman no longer," claims Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) in Spiderman 2, the epic sequal to the block buster hit. This time Spiderman faces off against Dr Occ, while at the same time wrestling with himself trying to come to terms with the decisions he has made in life. Decisions that have pushed his loved ones further away. Especially his now debt ridden aunt who now lives alone, and his long time dream girl Mary Jane, who is heading down her own seperate and distant path attempting to survive live in the big city. Spiderman 2 is set two years after the first, and like the first it combines a solid plot, sound acting, and stunning special effects to deliver a truly amazing and specticular film. The plot develops slight slow, but I promise that when things really get going, you will be on the edge of your seat. The most memorible scene for me, is the showdown on the train towards the end. As with the first film there are some really intresting special features. In summary Spiderman 2 makes a great family film and would make a great addition to any dvd collection.

Before Spider-Man was created in the early 60's, super heroes tended to be a step down from gods (and some actually WERE gods). They were powerful, morally upright, and unwaivering in their convictions. In other words, it was fun to follow their adventures, but they were a bit hard to relate to.
Stan Lee changed all of that when he created Spider-Man. He decided to make a hero who was an unpopular, nerdy kid who just happened to get stuck with powers he wasn't even sure he wanted. He had everyday problems like dealing with bullies, being uncomfortable around that cute girl he likes, and feeling left out in general. And who hasn't had experiences like these at some point in their life?
I've seen some great comic book adaptations that really got down to the core of a character (Batman), and I've seen movies that simply made me cringe and wonder how they could have been so far off the mark (Daredevil, anyone?). As far as capturing the true essence of it's title character, this movie tops them all.
In a lot of ways, this is THE Spider-Man story. This is Peter Parker's struggle to decide just who he is and what his resposibility is to the world, his family, and himself. And it's not an easy decision to make.
It's been beaten to death a bit by now, but it all boils down to what Uncle Ben told Peter: "With great power comes great responsibility." And Peter rages against this logic for the entire movie. Should he live for himself, enjoy his life, and ignore the powers he's been given? Or should he put the needs of others before his own, essentially sacrificing his personal happiness in lieu of the satisfaction and knowledge that he's made a difference in the world?
