Which first Spider-Man movie had the best Storytelling?

Which first Spider-Man movie had the best Storytelling?

Embarrassed_Koala395

It depends on the kind of stories you enjoy. Fun and light-hearted would go to homecoming, realistic and romantic would go to Amazing, and the OG was the most inspiring and consistent. In the end, OG spider-man I think wins because it was not setting up anything it was just a good origin story. The message didn't get lost anywhere and it made me feel that final swing. Homecoming is fun but the messaging gets lost scene to scene. Amazing got confusing at times but stayed pretty loyal to what it meant and was quite good, I just didn't feel as much as the first spiderman. To me, the best stories are the ones that stick with you, that make you learn and feel and understand. For me, the only one that really did that was the first spider-man. His spider-man character as a whole was the most consistent throughout his story. You can trace his decisions see his action and be like yep that makes sense for him. Knowing the motives wants and needs of a character (especially the main) can do a lot for the story, and the first spider-man did that wonderfully. Besides the given ones my favorite is into the spider-verse.


Officialwashere

I 100% agree with you and the storyline for Tobey Spider-Man is really and original. You see his life progress and him struggle through the process and I really like how they show it instead of sayin g that he is struggling at certain points


Embarrassed_Koala395

Yeah, his character grows and changes very naturally with the story while also shaping the story. It's never a sudden change in motives or beliefs, we see why he changes his mind and we understand it. In the other spider-men I sometimes am confused as to why this character made this decision based off of the knowledge we have of the character and there being no scene to explain that change. It makes it feel less like natural cause and effect and more like the writers need to get to the next scene but don't know how.


Officialwashere

I get what you mean


Some_Randoh

Why would you do this?. I can already see a shit storm when searching controversial


Haunting-Homework-87

Imo raimi movies are very good structured, it's not just about "spiderman or Peter" it's also about aunt may, uncle Ben, MJ (a real MJ), Harry, etc. Just by looking the very first 5 minutes of the movie you have the perfect introduction of all characters.


Officialwashere

Very true


JonsonPonyman98

I agree. I actually kinda like the new MJ, but that’s probably just cause I like Zendaya. The OG is definitely better, even if she falls off as the series progresses


Haunting-Homework-87

My problem qith this new "MJ" is that inclusive disney idea, at the end, everybody disliked the fact that MJ wasn't the og (you know the redhead sexy girl) and they decided that zendayas acronym for MJ isn't Mary Jane, actually it's Michelle Jones.


JonsonPonyman98

Fundamentally taking an established character and changing a thing that they are known as and for is just stupid, but at least in this version she does act a lot differently to give her own version some individuality. So for the race swap it’s dumb ofc, but for how they changed the character more it works for a different looking MJ


ChickenJerker

I don’t feel like that’s really much of a problem. I can tolerate the casting choice it. I feel like it makes sense since she isn’t the traditional MJ she shouldn’t look like the traditional MJ or even share the first name of the Traditional MJ.


JonsonPonyman98

From the aspect I understand it


Zedekiah117

Whichever one I’m watching at the time honestly. All 3 have their pros and cons, but all 3 are really enjoyable Spidey movies.


Officialwashere

That is a very true opinion


Stunning-Ad7947

Yes


ChickenJerker

Spider-Man 1 personally


Officialwashere

Ya same


ChickenJerker

Spider-Man 1 feels like it came straight from the comics personally. It took a lot of interesting things in the characters history and made it iconic. If I could describe it the movie is more of a remix of a song than a completely new song and that’s why I like it so much.


Officialwashere

Interesting


JonsonPonyman98

Raimi


Officialwashere

Ya I agree best storytelling with beginning middle and end


EggBenedict2

totally the OG 2002 film.


Officialwashere

Yooo les go


SmallSeesaw3363

Spiderman (2002)


Officialwashere

Nice. Tobey’s Spider-Man feels like Spider-Man


spaceface00

Original Sam Raimi. The first two Raimi movies are still the best live action Spider-Man movies.


Officialwashere

I agree with Rami and the storytelling. They express and show their message so good throughout the films


ShelterKooky9320

i'd say Spider-Man 2002 because Peter's character arc is pretty good


Officialwashere

True


JeffMen103

2002 of course


Officialwashere

Ya a lot of ppl say Tobey’s which is obvious. The storytelling and the way they portrayed their message instead of saying it is so good


PARER123

They’re all great all of em amazing! Kinda like comparing apples and oranges. Oranges are good but you can’t have an orange and expect an apple. All good in different ways.


Officialwashere

Exactly thank you


velicinanijebitna

1. Spiderman (2002)- a great adaptation of Spiderman's origin story, it heavily focuses on characters and their relationships with Peter. Green goblin works as a perfect villian because he is Spiderman's polar opposite: the one who challenges Peter's morals 2.homecoming- it focuses on Peter learning the responsibility lesson, but movie suffers for being very MCU formulatic, jokes being thrown every few minutes, and support characters treated like walking memes rather than actual charactes. Vulture was a great villian with good motivation. Too many avengers references ( we get it, spidey is in the MCU now). 3.TASM, like 2002, it focuses on characters, but it suffers from trying to be too different just for sake of being different without bringing enough new things to the table. It has it's moment's tho (romance). Lizard was goofy looking villian with even goofier motivation


Officialwashere

Like ur listing. Spider-Man and TASM really focuses on characters and story while I feel like homecoming and FFH really has the quipy jokes and lighthearted vibe which is fine tho


StormReady3806

2002


Officialwashere

Ya I lot of ppl really like Rami Spider-Man


StormReady3806

I don’t know people who don’t Raimi Spider-Man is my childhood


______minoru______

in my opinion i think spider man 2 has the best storytelling


Officialwashere

Ya I see a lot ppl saying that I agree


Underportal

Tobey spiderman had a really relatable story in my opinion and Amazing Spiderman has a A mix of serious and fun kind of story which I like and MCU spiderman has a all over the place type of story but I like the MCU Spider-Man aswell so idk man the best might be between the Raimi spiderman and the TASM


Officialwashere

Ya Rami Spider-Man is so relatable because you see Peter struggle throughout the films but it’s uncle ben’s words and the determination that makes him wear the mask


mrenderkid

Both spiderman 1 and amazing spiderman, homecoming didnt understand spiderman


Officialwashere

I get what you mean


SuperMecha20

The original Sam Raimi 2002 film without hesitation. The first Amazing Spider-Man movie and Homecoming are both crap.


F-Zilla

Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (2002)


Officialwashere

Ya


Kris86dk

Raimi hands down. I actually care about the characters... So far the MCU Spider-man and his supportimg cast feel so redundant. I have zero attachment to Ned, MJ or Aunt May... Flash is throwaway(he was in the others too, but at least There were more memorable scenes and tension in Raimis 1st movie between him and Pete) There is No Harry/Gwen stacy/Mary Jane or Betty brant iirc in the mcu(unless was Betty the one ned hooked up with? Or was that Liz Allen? Can't remember.. It was a pointless sideplot in the 2nd movie it seems) With the amount of movies Holland has been in as peter/Spider-man his whole character/world seems the least fleshed out imo... Aside from Iron man/happy There Are no characters im interested in so far... The villain have been kinda lackluster too(although Keaton was good as Vulture) I have little interest in the 3rd up coming mcu movie... Its a shame Cause Spider-man has always been My fave... But its due to his humanity, his relateability... His struggle with juggling 2 lives... So far i just dont care about his Peter parker "life"


Officialwashere

So I see where you’re going with this. In the MCU you don’t feel attached to all characters like IN RAMI’s Spider-Man but that’s all due to the writing. I’m hoping NWH is different from far from home and homecoming


Kris86dk

Exactly. Peters "world" eg. Supporting cast, friends, family etc were poorly introduced/never fleshed out properly... And as of now, so late in the MCU, i dont have much Faith in the writing making big improvements, it feels kind of late to flesh out the cast, when they had 2 solo movies to do so, looking at the Disney shows atm the writing and stories havent been doing it for me. Falcon and Winter soldier fell apart by the last few episodes, Wandavision had a great premise, and the finale felt lackluster, although There is Hope DR Strange 2 gives us the full circle... Only seen 1st episode of Loki, and damn that was boring... The silly humor which has been ramping up since Thor ragnarok/gotg 2 and onward just feels like its trying too Hard... I know the writers Are not the same for Spider-man and the rest of the shows/movies, but it looks like a trend currently with the newer phase3/4, the tone seems off compared to how the MCU started off and characters were being introduced... Daredevil was a great show, where the tone is consistent and the characters were fleshed out very well... My fingers Are crossed but im sceptical for phase 4 so far...


WulfSpyder

Just for the record, Liz Allen was Vulture's Daughter in Homecoming. Betty was shown briefly in Homecoming and then became Ned's short term girlfriend during their trip in Far From Home


Kris86dk

Right... Been a while since i watched it, just remembered Vulture is named Toomes, so i guess the Allen name slipped My mind... Yeah i thought it was either Betty or Liz with ned... Anyway My opinion still stands, the characters just dont seem that fleshed out to me compared to in the Raimi movies... Harry, MJ and Peter were alot more relatable, even Aunt May was a great character and had a big impact on Peters path... It just feels alot more like the comic book Spidey i grew up with.


CuriousAd9473

Well in my opinion, homecoming felt more like a classic Spider-Man story. It was lighthearted but still put some weight on it. I enjoy the Tobey movies just because of nostalgia and the first Amazing Spider-Man movie was okay but Homecoming just felt like Spider-Man to me. The other two were too dramatic to me


Tracey_Davenport

To each their own. I think there’s definitely something good about each Spider-Man movie, even TASM 2 and Spider-Man 3, and I see where you’re coming from. I’m definitely up to watch any of them at any given time. That being said, to me, I still think the OG ones reign supreme not only because of nostalgia, but because they are a close representation of classic Spider-Man in spirit.


CuriousAd9473

Yeah that's fair too. There's definitely great things about each movie in and of itself. I love Spidey saving Gwen in 3, the intro swing in TASM 2 and more. I think the things that the OGs did superior are things that don't really matter AS MUCH to me as they might for others. You can assume a lot of those things in the movie. The other guy brought up Ben which I would've liked to hear him mentioned at some point but i can feel his presence in comments like "I can't do that to her right now. Not after all she's been through" or Peter using bens suitcase, the reason he does what he does, etc. We know he's there and had an impact but I don't need to hear about it every couple seconds (not that the other movies did that). I think Toms interpretation is the most relatable and I love that. I know people don't like how quirky the other characters are but it reminds me of high school. Most of the people I met were quirky. Pete isn't some guy who people are gonna just randomly try and beat up because he's just invisible until he does something geeky. No one notices him until him and Ned geek out over Lego Star wars, mentions looking creepy, or messes up. He's just a nobody. Aunt May does charity things. I even love Flash Thompson! He's just like a typical bully. None of the bullies who messed with me in school were like the other movies. They were just people who wouldn't shut their mouths and who would get a group of people to basically point and laugh. But even then, I don't need to have a story with those people because Spider-Man himself is just super relatable to me. I'll always say that Tom and Tobey both carry that classic Spider-Man spirit in them but come from different points of view. Tobeys movies were dramatic and grand scale which is great but Toms feels a few issue comic book story arc. Idk tho. I know this opinion isnt the most popular tho😂


Tracey_Davenport

All valid points actually. I’m so glad you brought up Flash. I know the MCU iteration of him gets a lot of flack, but I enjoy what they’ve done to him. I’m glad they even leave some elements of his character from the comics like his love of Spider-Man despite his dislike of Peter. It’s still true while being a modern reinvention. The high school setting and the students definitely feel the most realistic in the MCU, and I love that about it


Officialwashere

I love flash in the MCU. They wrote him well and the on and off love for Peter and then loving Spider-Man is funny


CuriousAd9473

Yeah Flash gets too much flack for actually being a convincing Bully lol I even like Michelle but that's because I don't have as strong an attachment to Mary Jane or Gwen Stacy as others seem to which I'm not saying is dumb or anything. Its just not something I care about. I hope that this next one is darker in tone and really isolates Peter because these last two films have been about him becoming his own hero. I totally disagree with critics who call him Iron Man Jr but I won't go into that unless you're interested. I've given you a bunch of rants already😂


Tracey_Davenport

Hey, at least your answers are thought out unlike some people who get really angry over the topic! I also hope the next one continues off the independence arc established. Would be a shame if they don’t follow through. I don’t quite agree with the Iron Boy Jr. take either, since it’s too extreme and dismissive to me. I don’t think that MCU Spider-Man veers too far off from a good portrayal, but instead is just anchored into a more Iron Man centric narrative, which is just a consequence of that world. I know everyone’s mileage will vary on that though


CuriousAd9473

True. You're one of the few people I've talked to about this who hasn't just gone off on me. That's why I'm afraid of them going overboard with multiverse stuff because I think it would just forget the plot already established. My biggest issue with Iron Boy Jr is that these movies are all about him doing what's right because it's right no matter what. Iron Man literally took his suit and told him to stop but it didn't matter cuz he's Spider-Man and it's what he needs to do. Not because Iron man helped or told him to. He beat vulture without stark tech or advice and even tried to save Vulture at the end. He tried to stop him on the ferry and could've succeeded with a little more experience. In Far From Home people kept comparing him to Iron Man but in the end he did what he did because he's not Iron Man. He's more than that which is why he steps up deposits him just trying to be a normal kid for a while. I don't know if you noticed but he even gets rid of a lot of the tech that Tony put in the first suit. He doesn't have or at least use an ai, he uses his basic web stuff with the exception of taser web, doesn't use the drone, and if you watch him create the suit he's actually doing the weaving on the plane. Obviously it's the machine doing it but Pete's guiding it the way he wants the whole way through instead of just telling the machine what he wants the whole time. Plus, how is this poor kid who has to dumpster dive for things, never been on a plane, or have a nice car like flash supposed to magically create this epic cinematic suit? It makes since that cheap sweats and some weird random gear is what he uses. Tony just takes what Peter wants and makes a better version of it is all. Plus, Pete creates his own web fluid and stuff which we see. He faces tons of consequences and the things that DO work out are things that work out in the comics and such already like Tony forgiving him or Aunt May accepting him being Spiderman though I wish we could've seen her flip out instead of skipping over that too. Basically he's always been his own hero. Tony honestly barely guides him because he just tells him to back off. Its always Pete whether in the avengers movies or his own that decides to step up and fight for what's right. He's already got the moral compass that Ben instills in him. Tony is just the one who gives him the physical edge to look the part is all. Its just ignorant of the critics who say he's just a copy cuz in everything he's in he's his own person with the exception of MAYBE Civil War but then again he was barely in it and was asked to come help Tony to fight his heros so that's different


Officialwashere

I agree with you I really like all of them. I don’t have a favorite but for fun and like watching in the summer has to be homecoming


CuriousAd9473

Its definitely a movie to just sit and have fun with. Its you classic heros tale. I'm not as big a fan as the Amazing Spider-Man movies but I can enjoy the first one and watch it but I don't really care to watch 2. I'll watch the first two Tobey films but the 3rd one makes me cringe the most. Either way they definitely all contribute something different and have a good enough Spider-Man to cheer for which is what you want most from a superhero movie


Officialwashere

100%


BigJohnH_47

For me it's the other way around, Spider-Man was always a dramatic character. For me what ruins my enjoyment for Tom's Spidey is the atmosphere of a teen comedy. I enjoyed the dramatic heartfelt emotions of tasm 1 and Spider-Man 1. And while Tom's homecoming having a more light hearted and comedic feel is not objectively bad. It's just not in my taste and therefore doesn't resonate with me like the other two did. But I still would never call Tom a horrible Spider-Man even with this fact.


CuriousAd9473

That's fair. He's definitely a dramatic character and I can see how the teen comedy stuff doesn't translate for people. I think my issue with the first two iterations is the level of drama and how much drama those worlds faced every couple seconds. I find it refreshing how Toms movies have drama but it's not this world shaking thing until the end of his second movie. He's so far dealt with mentor issues, responsibility issues, girl issues and so on which I like because when it hits the heavy drama like having a building fall on top of you you remember that he's still just a kid and yet he's fighting to do what's right. Its in the same spirit as Tobeys and Andrews. Idk tho. I can see exactly where you're coming from tho


Officialwashere

I get what you mean. You like the groundness of Spider-Man like TASM and Tobey’s Spider-Man


Cutty_ChikN

classic spiderman stories have uncle ben.


Officialwashere

I don’t agree with that but I do. I know that homecoming had stark to act like Ben and they pushed The Uncle Ben storyline far far back but I don’t think every Spider-Man movie needs uncle Ben. It really depends on what the writers choose to do like NWH that’s coming out


officialchourico

Idk about you but most Spider-Man stories don't constantly bring up Uncle Ben, even the classics. Is he important? Yes, of course. But you feel Ben more through Pete's actions and thought processes than direct statements about Ben. This isn't even me defending his absence in the MCU, because I do believe he should have been mentioned by now. But what you said is silly.


Officialwashere

Ya they nod towards uncle Ben here and there but never mention him b/c they want tony to take that roll which I understand


officialchourico

I'm not even speaking about the MCU specifically. He said "classic spiderman stories have uncle ben" when there are tons of stories that don't even mention him. Because Ben is important, yes, but does not need to be mentioned in every issue. The current MCU thing wouldn't even be an issue if he said Ben's name even once. Because Ben doesn't need to be integral to the story (since he is past his origin anyway), the fact he isn't mentioned at all though is strange just because it is kinda nonsensible.


Officialwashere

Ya they should’ve made him OLDER if they didn’t want to retell the uncle Ben story


officialchourico

I don't think they really had to do that, either. He had been Spider-Man for 6 months already iirc in Civil War. Meaning Ben would have died around that time. Half a year is certainly plenty of time to accept a passing. Regardless of how much time has passed, though, Peter never mentioning him even in passing or caring that his suitcase got destroyed in FFH is weird.


Officialwashere

Nah but this is the time that he is thinking of Ben the most


Cutty_ChikN

but the thing is the main reason why he became spiderman is because uncle ben died.


officialchourico

No shit. That doesn't mean Uncle Ben gets mentioned every story. He doesn't, and doesn't need to be, only at the origin and in passing. People don't bring up their sources of grief every single day, especially when dealing with other issues.


CuriousAd9473

But not every Spider-Man story mentions him or even has to. We know what happened in the beginning and don't need to see it again. Maybe they'll do something more with him in this next one but it's not like we don't know anything about him. If their take was that different they would've done the origin because it would've been a fresh take but since they didn't we can assume that they just want us to insert the typical origin which is UB gets killed, Peter feels guilty and becomes Spider-Man because if you could've stopped something like that but you don't then it's your fault for letting it happen (with great power comes great responsibility). Its not that difficult. I'm not saying this movie or series is perfect or that I wouldn't change things about it but out of the three series Toms movies just feel like the better Spider-Man movies


Cutty_ChikN

fine, im just gonna wait for NWH to at least mention him, considering the reason peter became spiderman was cuz uncle ben died.


CuriousAd9473

Ok, you do that👍 We're already past him becoming Spider-Man. He's been Spider-Man for awhile now actually so all of that's done with. I will say that when Mysterio was doing the big illusion scene and Peter saw Tony's grave, I had really hoped that he showed Bens. I mean, by that point he had Edith and knew Spideys identity so it's not that far fetched that Edith would know about Ben if Beck just asked to see Peters file or something that Tony made on him. I would've loved to see that! But either way, I don't mind Ben not being as huge a deal as the other movies. I mean if you're in love with the og movies where he was a big deal in every movie no matter what then yeah I could see why this is a disappointment. And that's not me knocking that but I personally am fine with just knowing he's there in spirit because Marvel told us that they're not doing the origin again because we already know it so right out of the gate we know he became Spideys because of Bens death


strawchild

Danny elfman score is the decider for me. Raimi’s wins


Officialwashere

Ya I figure a lot of people would say Rami Spider-Man. They did those movies so well


Fiti99

Into the Spider-Verse for me, is simple and straightforward, plus does a good job giving some nice character development to both Miles and Peter When it comes to live action I don’t know, I love the first Raimi movie because of Raimi’s directing and not so much because of the storytelling, the ASM movie was a mess in every aspect that wasn’t related to Peter and Gwen’s romance and the MCU one while fun still felt like the typical formula those movies always follow


Officialwashere

Ok go forgot about spider verse it’s the best one


JonsonPonyman98

Well you said which Spidey is the best first one, and he gave his pick and the specifically live action pick, so I don’t know why u said this


Officialwashere

He mentioned into the spider verse…


JonsonPonyman98

Yea I know, but your title says which is the best, not which is the best out of these three, but even then he gave his opinion on which is the best out of the three


ZeekwithaZ

I honestly would love a mixture of all three put together. I like a few things from each one but I also have things I don’t like from each one. I think I love the pacing from the Rami trilogy but the story line from garfields movies and marvel tie ins from the Holland movies


Officialwashere

That would actually be sick if they did that!


IwanD_Roberts

If by first you're referring to the "origin story", in which the protagonist (in this case, Spider-Man) evolves to become the intended hero they are meant to be, then I would say Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. If you're referring to the first in a series, as in they have to have at least one sequel produced after said first film, then I would say Spider-Man: Homecoming. By the way, if you're interested in my rankings of the Spider-Man films, here you go: 1. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) 2. Spider-Man 2 (2004) 3. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) 4. Spider-Man (2002) 5. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) 6. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) 7. Spider-Man 3 (2007) 8. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) However, this list does not reflect on my opinions on the three live action Spider-Man performances portrayed by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland. I genuinely love all three renditions equally, as well as all the versions we got in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I just love all versions of Spider-Man, sue me! I just don't like comparing and causing arguements when you can just enjoy it all. Sorry this comment turned into a bit of a TED Talk, I just needed to vent and get all that off my chest, especially when you're constantly reminded of the Spider-Man fandom at war with each other when we should realise we're lucky to be getting everything we've got and are getting in the very near future.


Officialwashere

Interesting list and I agree that everyone should just enjoy them. Everyone says Tom is bad or tobey is the best or this movie is bad but I honestly like everything we got


Assdunker

Japanese Spider-Man movie is best obviously.


_Puny_God_

The way they did Mysterio was too perfect


Officialwashere

Ya I really liked him ngl


StormReady3806

I do


GoddessSunna

Homecoming


Officialwashere

I like homecoming, it has the summer vibe


rebekaaaaaaah

Origin story - Spider-Man 1(no doubt) Overrall Story - Homecoming...


Officialwashere

Agree


Eheroduelist

TASM did a fantastic job of grounding Peter to reality, but Raimi’s Spider-man is fantastic and far more relatable than either of the two live action options.


Officialwashere

1000%


Daredevil731

All Raimi movies by far


Officialwashere

I feel the same. Why in your opinion?


Daredevil731

I can go on with paragraphs for days. But the gist of it is that the series overall feels the most mature and the most cinematic. I didn't like Amazing and the MCU is fun, but misses the mark on a lot of crucial things and the characters are basically all in name only. Good and fun? Yes. But it isn't what it should be. The Raimi series has a balance of humor and drama. The humor can be anywhere to intentional cheese (which is hard to pull off) or genuinely funny. The movies all feel like they were made with passion and understanding. The series is a great adaptation of the 60s comics, with most of the characters being there and well translated. The series has a lot of great moral dilemmas, responsibility, sacrifice, revenge, forgiveness and they are all wonderfully told. Peter's life SUCKS and his luck is awful, much like the one I grew up reading. But even though it's all hard for him he always does the right thing in the end. The films are so inspiring and make you want to be a better person. Elfman's music is incredible, moving, powerful. The performances are all great, the villains all have great motives and moments, the cinematography is beautiful (realistic, but slightly stylized). Scenes that stand out are like when after Peter's graduation, him sitting in his room looking absolutely guilt ridden and broken before Aunt May comes in. Hearing that little pick up speech, to the Spidey theme, him realizing what he needs to do, all very powerful. Him confessing to May in 2 about his involvement with Ben's death. And Peter and Sandman talking at the end of 3, when they understand each other. These are some, not all, of very good moments in this trilogy that go above and beyond a "summer action movie" that, I'm sorry, the MCU has never matched or attempted to. The MCU has had some great emotional bits, don't get me wrong. It's just these stand out to me. The Raimi films don't feel like fast paced action movies with a lot of comedy thrown in and some emotional stuff. They seem to really take their time and let things play out. Emotional scenes are not undercut by jokes, action scenes are not undercut by constant jokes (there are some yes, but it's not overbearing) I think 3 obviously has the most issues of the series, but there is far more good than bad to me. Edit: I will say the Russo Brothers MCU movies are some of the best when it comes to nailing emotional stuff. Civil War was pretty wonderful.


Officialwashere

I 1000% agree with ur response. Tobey’s Spider-Man is so relatable. You see him struggling throughout his time as Spider-Man but it’s the determination and Uncle Ben’s words that kept his head up and made him put the mask back on and I really feel that.


Supreme_God_Bunny

Tasm1


Officialwashere

I agree


arkenney0

Spider-Man was kind of a basic superhero, romantic story that didn't really dive deep into the character as much as the rest of the series did. Amazing Spider-Man was kind of the same way but adding a little more comic book to the story and making it a little darker because of the success of Dark Knight, I thought they made a better greif/struggling to be the hero in this one than Spider-Man. Spider-Man Homecomimg was just a summer blockbuster movie. Didn't really have anything to say and kind of got the character wrong IMO. Not to say that the other two were masterpieces that had 100s of hidden messages but I thought their stories were better than this one. But if I had to choose one, I'd definitely choose TASM, no question. I thought they got Spider-Man just right, making him the smart outcast with 2 personalities. Spider-Man and Peter Parker. I also thought this Uncle Ben story was more compelling than Spider-Man and certainly Homecoming (because they didn't talk about it at all). And also Spider-Man not being a hero right away was more interesting, making him seem more human. So I thought TASM had better story telling. Thank you for coming to my TedTalk


Officialwashere

I loved the long response. I agree with homecoming. You can tell it’s a summer movie, that’s why I would really watch it in the summer, I said this to someone else’s response in this post. TASM is the movie out of all of them I could rewatch over and over idk why. The darkness and tone of the movie was perfect but I feel like in the second ASM movie they overdid the jokes and ppl LEGIT got KILLED from it


arkenney0

I liked how witty he was but at the same time the loss of Dark tone for a more light hearted setting seemed off. I can rewatch the first one but the only scene I like in TASM 2 is Gwen's death because Andrew's performance was amazing (no pun intended)


Officialwashere

Literally. Andrews’s acting is so good at the end of ASM 2

Yeah, I also like how they made Andrew garfield’s peter different from the rest because no one is made fun of for being smart anymore. So him being the unsocial kid that has no friends is very relatable for many people like me.

Yeah totally. I think the glasses thing was dumb. Like, IMO, he should've started with glasses and a "bad" haircut and changed into how he started in the movie when he got but by the spider. Cause he went from normal skater kid to, super science wiz to, hard core badass to, normal Peter Parker and it was just weird but other than that I really like what they did with his character.

Imo its Tasm for me


Officialwashere

Really interesting. Why TASM?


beekeepxr

No tasm fan has ever managed to answer this question lmao


Officialwashere

Lmao ya I’m just asking specifically why they chose it. Thats all.


green-gang1200

Sorry I'm late to this but Tasm was grounded all characters felt like real people something pretty difficult to accomplish every time gwen and Peter are on the screen just makes me smile hell even Flash Thompson Has an arc the swinging scenes are amazing the CGI is Spectacular and the acting of everybody is sensational


Officialwashere

Ya I 💯 percent agree. They felt like ppl you can relate to. Like Peter struggling to pick the suit back up but it was the determination and Ben that made him be Spider-Man again

Spider-Man, Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse & The Amazing Spider-Man


Officialwashere

Ya I didn’t include Spider-Man into the spiderverse but that movie is like wow….


Climperoonie

For economy of storytelling, Spider-Man does it best. Personal preference - I love the tone and feel of TASM best. In terms of fun - Homecoming is best.

100%

I'm giving it to Homecoming, because it summed up literally all of the important parts of *Captain America: Civil War* in less than two minutes.


Officialwashere

Very true


Astalimitbreak

Tasm by far for me


Officialwashere

Interesting. Why? I liked the darkness and the storytelling in the first one. They could’ve made him younger IMO tho


Astalimitbreak

The darkness was amazing it stood out from the other Spider-Man films


Officialwashere

Ya 100%
