Spider-Man ★★★★½

Spider-Man sure has plenty of pretty evident flaws (that are no longer existent in the sequel), and one could argue that it isn't THAT great.

*HOWEVER*, it is also so funny, and exciting, and tender, and full of life, and it gives ME life, and I love Spider-Man, I love Uncle Ben, I love this love story, I love Dafoe, and I love Raimi's over-the-top direction so so much *AND* nothing else really matters because THIS is the definitive super-hero origin story *AND* yeah, to be honest, it IS THAT great. I have seen it one hundred times, and plan to see it one thousand more until the end of times.
