The only flaw of that movie is the fact that it was directed by a real life monster.

Legitimately curious where you find conversations about X2 other than this thread. I feel like everyone has forgotten about that trilogy entirely. The general consensus is that 1 was passable, 2 was amazing, 3 was terrible. I don't ever see anyone ever talking about it though.

Also curious where you see glowing retrospectives about the Raimi Spiderman trilogy. The only people I ever see bringing up the McGuire movies are either loving them ironically or straight up making fun of them.

I think one of the biggest things about Spiderman 2 is that the bad guy was very well written, very well acted, and considering he had tentacles with a mind of their own, very well rendered SFX-wise. Also, the scene of Spidey stopping the runaway train and then caught and cared for by the passengers was fantastic and pretty unique for most of the superhero movies made. They did a bit of that in 1 ("You take on one of us, you take on all of us" not too far removed from 9/11), effective but not as good as in 2, and tried it in Amazing Spiderman 1 (crane scene), but generally considered kinda cheesy.

Personally, my views on the Spiderman movies is Tobey was good at Peter & not a great Spidey, Garfield was better at Spidey but his Peter didn't match up well. Tom Holland really seems to do a good job of both and balancing them. To be fair though, Holland is the beneficiary of an experienced MCU machine.

The original X-Men and Spider-man trilogies also benefited from being the first of the recent spate of big budget superhero movies. As a kid, I was just grateful that Hollywood was finally making stuff I actually wanted to see. But when we look back on them, they obviously don't hold up very well against a lot of the more refined offerings that have come out since.

Kirsten Dunst is terrible, and emo Peter Parker from S3 was a crime against humanity.
