    There is just something about the tone and vibrancy of all characters, no matter the screen time, that captures the tone of the comics it's adapting better than the rest of this genre, despite not having the benefit of featuring a gallery of other superheroes. Not having rights to any other superheroes was more a gift than a curse for this allowed the story to focus 100% on the character of Peter Parker, without any unnecessary distractions on behalf of…

    I'm not going there to die.

    11/10.

He was spinning that thing like a carousel, flying it through eyeballs and following the wizards with it like a force of nature. Screaming women and ancient books containing the evilest of evil are back in full force, and I’m all here for both. People getting sliced in half, eyeballs flying (Raimi loves his…
