This movie came out like a month, I loved it and have seen it twice. So, I’m a little embarrassed that I have just gotten around to writing this review right now. But anyways web-heads lets swing in to this.
I ended 2018 having seen 59 films in theaters for the year—sometimes I suck and write some notes on my phone and then forget about them. On top of my laziness this latter part of the year has been jammed packed with movies—its been hard to keep up. So, here is a quick round-up of my thoughts on some movies I haven’t gotten around to doing proper reviews. This is part 1 of 2.

Spider-Man 2 is Sam Raimi’s penultimate film in the Tobey Maguire film series. This time Peter Parker is out on his own, down on his luck but still Spider-Man. He faces his best villain in the series Otto Octavius, a man just as smart as Peter and more dangerous. I’m sure you’ve seen the movie so you know who Doc Ock is and you know who Spider-Man is. I think we can all agree Spider-Man 2 is the best Spider-Man movie so far. But I think Spider-Man 2 is the best comic book movie. Yeah The Dark Knight is phenomenal, Logan is a beautiful film and Captain America: Civil War is just great but none of them feel like a comic book. Spider-Man 2 feels like a comic book. I’m gonna run you down a list of reasons why.
