Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
There's a hero in all of us.
Peter Parker is going through a major identity crisis. Burned out from being Spider-Man, he decides to shelve his superhero alter ego, which leaves the city suffering in the wake of carnage left by the evil Doc Ock. In the meantime, Parker still can't act on his feelings for Mary Jane Watson, a girl he's loved since childhood.

Funny how the greatest superhero movie ever made is not even about the superhero, but the man behind the mask.
For all intents and purposes, this should really be called Peter Parker 1 instead of Spider-Man 2, because the film is about him as a person, not about Spider-Man as a hero. It's about a guy trying to live a life full of intrusions from his superhero alter-ego, rather than a story about a superhero trying to save the world while real life intrudes.
And that's really why this is such a great film. We're made to really care about Peter's life and how terrible it has become since he became Spider-Man. He can't work a simple pizza delivery job,…
imagine this in today's market: a superhero movie that simply finds the main character struggling with a difficult romance, making him emotionally vulnerable, while he battles a single villain whose inner turmoil neatly parallels his own. even the perfunctory setup for the next installment at least builds organically on already-developed relationships from the first movie. i think the middle act of this (Peter losing his powers, the will-they-or-won't-they stuff with MJ, and the weirdly pointless bits about Aunt May moving to a new apartment) really bog things down; structurally it's a mess. but i'm prepared to forgive a lot solely for the El-train sequence, as exciting and resonant a comic-book movie action scene as you're likely to ever get. and Raimi, high on the clout he got from the first one, is allowed to go absolutely wild whenever he can. it's doubly refreshing to remember that movies like this used to be actually directed.
Now this is a superhero movie. Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 is a complex human story mixed with fantastic action sequences that still hold up beautifully. The camp is there, but not over done like the first of Raimi's films. It's a film of exceptional assurance, so supremely confident with itself that you can't help but sit back and marvel (no pun intended) at the craftsmanship laid in front of your eyes.
The Awesome: Don't give me any of that crap about Andrew Garfield being Spider-Man. No, just no. Toby Maguire brings charisma, awkwardness and a sense of misdirection to the character of Peter Parker, and wears the AMAZING suit of Spider-Man with confidence and wit. The characters work, the action…
With the exception of some scenes in which Spider-Man was flying through the cityscape, which looked more as if he was soaring the skies of a Grand Theft Auto game, the special effect of this second entry into the Spider-Man trilogy were a vast upgrade in comparison to its predecessor. Graphics were, however, not the only thing that was subjected to a much needed upgrade. The story was smarter, more dramatic and, above all, considerably funnier. Take the slow elevator scene for example or how most of the intense sentimental passages were directly followed by an effective gag; some of those totally got me by surprise, ensuing some genuine hilarity. I think it’s safe to state that the first hour…

Spiderman 2 was better than the original, even though green goblin was a good villain, dok ock (Molina) with his mechanical tentacles is a much better villain, harry osborne's hatred for spiderman only increases but when he finds out that peter is spiderman as he was about to kill him, he is unsure of what to think about him until the end. mary jane finally shows her true feelings for peter on the day of her wedding with astronaut John Jameson son of the bugle chief j. Jonah jameson who hates spiderman and thinks he is a criminal.
It has taken me over ten years to finally see one of Sam Raimi's Spider Man films. Universally loved by every comic book fan, a big budget outing for the web-slinger was long overdue, and with Batman, Superman and X-Men ringing up massive box office numbers, Marvel unleashed 3 Spidey films in 5 years to coin in some cash of their own.
This second film in the franchise from Raimi sees Tobey Maguire struggling with his double life as a photographer for the Bugle and his extracurricular activities as Spider Man. His life however is about to spiral out of control as he faces his most dangerous enemy in the form of Doctor Octopus, a scientist whose mind and body…
Spider-Man 2 remains to this day my second favorite superhero film only behind The Dark Knight. With a story that is carried by strong emotional weight, fantastic performances, wonderful action scenes, superb direction by Sam Raimi and a very heartfelt message at its core, everything about it is immensely improved from its predecessor to make a fantastic sequel. A truly flawless superhero film and still the best Spider-Man movie to date by far.
An unexpectedly emotionally charged entry in Sam Rami's Spider-Man trilogy, what Spider-Man 2 lacks in epic action set-pieces it makes up for in heartfelt storytelling; and that's not a bad thing in the slightest.
Eg setter MYKJE meir pris på actionen i denne filmen enn i Spider-Man. Den scena med Doc-Oc på sjukehuset er heilt utrulig. Beste superheltfilmen basert på tegneserie? Kanskje.
Only Marvel film im happy giving 5 stars
Still holds up
Still my favourite Marvel film.
guys still a dork
Os casos em que a continuação supera o filme original são artigos raros dentro do cinema, mas sempre que ocorrem são sempre bem-vindos. "Homem-Aranha 2" não é apenas um filme que se encaixa nesse quesito, mas o faz de maneira extremamente competente. Não há como negar que esta continuação é completamente aperfeiçoada em comparação ao primeiro. A trama tem um maior equílibrio, o vilão dessa vez é muito melhor desenvolvido e a equipe parece muito mais confiante em ousar.
"Homem-Aranha 2" se inicia no ponto onde se encerra o primeiro filme. Vemos o herói Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) enfrentando seríssimos problemas para honrar seus compromissos no emprego de entregador de pizza, na faculdade onde constantemente chega atrasado nas…
Even better than the first. Peter Parker's struggle to maintain his life activities while being Spider-Man portrays him in a very human role, which is relatable for the audience. This movie helped me face my own identity as an individual who figuratively has to struggle with being myself and my superhero identity. Towards the end of the film, I felt that I was able to go forth and wear my superhero costume and live out the best of both worlds.
Seriously though, who hasn't been where Peter is. Face to face to a girl you love very, very much, and for whatever reason, being completely unable to tell her how you feel. Whether it's because of your secret identity, or…
Every film Roger Ebert has given a four-star rating. This is an ongoing project.
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
