Spider-Man ★★★½

spider-man has long been my favorite superhero and this movie is my origin point. i LOVED this movie growing up. in middle school my mom got mad at me for sticking a bunch of spider-man stickers to my bedroom door because i ruined the paint, and that was because of this movie.

that said, having now seen an array of different spider-men, i’ve come to the realization that tobey is a great peter parker but just not a perfect spider-man. it’s still really good, it’s just that now that it’s in tom holland’s hands (aka the perfect peter and spider-man combo), it’s hard to see it in the same light.
