    Hi Nick.

    Greatly enjoyed your article on ranking from the worst to the best of ‘Spider-Man’ movies.

    I would agree with your ranking, although my preferences differ slightly and go like this.

    ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’.
    ‘Spider-Man 3’
    ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’
    ‘Captain America: Civil War’
    ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’
    ‘Spider-Man 2’

    I decided to include ‘Captain America: Civil War’ in the list since Spider-Man is in the film.

    Also, I chose the first two Tobey Maguire ‘Spider-Man’ movies over ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ since I’m loyal to that era and is my personal preference when I was a young Spider-Man fan in the 2000s. But saying that, the fact I’ve put ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ as third favourite on top of the list means that it’s one of the best.

    Thanks again for your article. Greatly enjoyed your thoughts on this!

    Tim. 🙂

      Thanks for your thoughts! Totally see your thoughts there, many people love those movies (for good reasons too!)

    Loved Homecoming too and my only gripe against it is Zendaya’s character. I feel like the movie could actually exist without her. But oh well, I guess she’s there to prepare us for the sequel.

    I like your writing! “Homecoming” was great, also made me want to watch all Spider-Man movies again in 3 days 😀 And you’re right, the new movie is everything one blockbuster should be!

    Haven’t seen Homecoming yet, but I agree that of the rest of them, Spider-man 2 is the best. not flawless, but better overall than the rest.

    Personally I’d put Amazing Spider-Man slightly above Spider-man, but only slightly.

    • Nick Kush says:

      I could see that! They’re basically the same movie so if you like how one did it over the other than that’s understandable!

  5. Keith Noakes says:

    I’d swap 5 and 6.

    • Nick Kush says:

      Those two are pretty interchangably bad for a lot of people. What made you especially hate Spider-Man 3?

      • Keith Noakes says:

        Everything but especially the dancing.

      • Nick Kush says:

        Lol I hear you on that one!

        “Now dig on this”

        Yuck. That’s cringeworthy

      • Keith Noakes says:

        Most of it was. I can’t remember ever being more angry while watching a movie.

      • Nick Kush says:

        I’m just always dumfounded as to why those elements were allowed to happen. Shouldn’t there be someone seeing the daily footage to tell Raimi that it looked terrible?

      • Keith Noakes says:

        I think sometimes it’s more about the studio wanting to make more money. We all know that a movie doesn’t have to be good to make money but people still pay to see them (i.e. Transformers).

      • Nick Kush says:

        So true! Raimi has talked about how he had a script for a fourth one that Sony wouldn’t do because it didn’t build a big enough world (among other reasons)

      • Keith Noakes says:

        I’m kind of glad that it ended at 3 though.

      • Nick Kush says:

        I understand that sentiment completely. I think I still would’ve liked to see it just because I have a soft spot for Sam Raimi.

      • Keith Noakes says:

        I’d like to see him do more movies.

      • Nick Kush says:

        Absolutely. I’m pretty sure his last film was Oz the Great and Powerful which came out in like 2013!

      • Keith Noakes says:

        Yeah, I was also going to say that I liked him on Xena but then I remembered that it was his brother on that one lol

      • Nick Kush says:

        Lol he certainly has his hits and misses, but his movies are never dull. There’s always something to talk about!

  6. Mr. Bobinsky says:

    Spider-Man 3 wasn’t obviously a masterpiece, but it had a brilliantly portrayed The Sandman by Thomas Haden Church. The final scene when Peter forgives him and he just leaves was amazing.

    • Nick Kush says:

      That is definitely a great scene! There are some good things within that film, it’s just a shame that the entire film couldn’t come together as nicely as its predecessors.

      • Mr. Bobinsky says:

        For sure. Do you know some other scenes in superhero movies when they just stop fighting and leave?

      • Nick Kush says:

        Hmmm…I can’t really off the top of my head. Maybe the closest thing would be in Watchmen when the Watchmen stop fighting Ozymandias in the final act. That definitely has a more dark edge to it though.

      • Mr. Bobinsky says:

        Damn, I totally forgot about it. Watchmen had a similar overall feeling indeed.

        Constantine had a curious ending too.

    I agree that the Amazing Spider-Man saga was terrible, and I am grateful for that, cause now we have Tom Holland as the web-slinger. I couldn’t agree more with your choices 🙂

    • Nick Kush says:

      Thanks so much! Sometimes you have to get through some tough times to get to something truly worthwhile!

  9. daisymae2017 says:

    Interesting that you think the latest Spiderman Movie is the best. I wouldn’t mind you doing “Dirty Dancing” or “Grease”. “Sound of music” would be another movie to rate.

    I was NOT going to go watch the new Spiderman movie until I read this blog post and short review. Guess I am now headed to the theater. 😀
