POLL RESULTS: What’s the Best Spidey Movie?

In the contest for “Best Spider-Man Movie”, KT readers have dubbed the newest the best.  Spider-Man: Homecoming is the sixth Spider-Man movie since Tobey Maguire first started slinging webs in 2002.  He and Sam Raimi made three films before the franchise was rebooted with Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb in 2012.  Then, following the disastrous The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014, Sony decided to lease Spider-Man back to Marvel so Spider-Man could make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a small role in 2015’s Captain America: Civil War.  Holland rolled that perfect performance as the wall crawler into a spectacular feature debut that is closing in on $700 million globally.  It was only ever a contest between Homecoming and Spider-Man 2 (which, to my mind, are the only good Spider-Man films).  Homecoming was dominating the poll for most of the month, but held off a late charge from Raimi’s best film to win 46% to 38%.  Spider-Man and even The Amazing Spider-Man got some votes, but not a single bit of love for Spider-Man 3 or The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (so good going, guys, I don’t have to lecture you lol).  Look for a new poll soon, thank you so much for voting, and start thinking about September when we have our 5th Annual Best Show on TV Poll!  Will The Flash defend, or will we have a fifth different show in five years?

  1. I’m in a bit of a quandary. I have not seen spider-man yet, which I know is unforgivable. Also, no Apes. Of course I need to see Dunkirk again, but that can wait, it will be around, I think. The ridiculous thing is that I might have to rewatch Valerian before anything, because if I don’t in the next few days, no more chances on a big screen, ever. But I get to SM and Apes this weekend, no question. Which first?

    With regard to that short film I posted a link to last week… be sure to watch it if you have not, but please never make the mistake of thinking I will be offended if you tell me that something I find awesome is actually pretentious, or weird, or anything else. Life is too short to hold people’s opinions about art against them, and I never do. I just like sharing things that connect with me, and that little piece did. Note that the eyes are actual human eyes, superimposed over the animated characters. Like the opposite of putting unnatural baboon eyes over the face of the old woman playing Palps is the ESB untouched original.
