Wow, I just mentioned on the cinema sins Spidey video that Honest Trailers are better. And here we are.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/29/2014, 12:15 PM
At least they acknowledge that the first 2 are great haha
thewonderer - 4/29/2014, 12:15 PM
Still a thousand times better than the Amazing Spider-Man.
Marvel1997 - 4/29/2014, 12:17 PM
Spiderman 1 was ok, The second was Great and I don't think anyone wants to remember Spiderman 3.......
MrMartinMarvel - 4/29/2014, 12:19 PM
It's good to know people are starting to appreciate the Raimi movies again. After Spider-Man 3, and around the time TASM was coming out, it seemed like everyone hated them.

My spider sense is tingling...

Downhill after Doc Oc and not setting up The Lizard actor for his pay-off in a third film.

They should do an honest trailer for John Carter (If they haven't already).
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/29/2014, 12:23 PM
These two scenes alone shit on everything from the reboot


KingPatel - 4/29/2014, 12:24 PM
While I don't mind The Amazing Spider-Man movies, I still wish Raimi got a chance to redeem himself with Spider-Man 4
CaptainObvious - 4/29/2014, 12:25 PM
@GoldenOne33- People are allowed to talk about movies, no matter how old they are. Everybody still talks about the older Batman and Superman film. Get over it.
charlie2094 - 4/29/2014, 12:25 PM
Lol, these videos are great :P

Never really liked the Raimi films
CaptainObvious - 4/29/2014, 12:26 PM
One of the best fight scenes in all of comic book movies.
razorwerk - 4/29/2014, 12:27 PM
I still can't understand how or why so many people claim SM2 was "so good". It was literally the exact same movie as SM1, just with a different villain. Obviously it's "better" than SM3, no kidding, but that's not saying much and shouldn't mean it gets a default thumbs-up pass. It was [frick]ing terrible.
Mastyrwerk - 4/29/2014, 12:28 PM
I tried watching ASM the other night and was so bored I put in Spider-Man 3. Man, as bad as that movie is, and it is really bad, it is a way more enjoyable watch than ASM. The emo dance is hilariously bad, but ASM is just bad.

@Marvel1997
No stop the words are making my eyes bleed
Lol

This trilogy is garbage.
ALegendaryPanda - 4/29/2014, 12:32 PM
Spider-Man 2 is still my favorite out of them all, but I haven't seen TASM 2 yet so that could change!
maninfinesuit - 4/29/2014, 12:33 PM
The first two are classics, and this ending remains one of my favourite comic book film endings.

Nomis - 4/29/2014, 12:33 PM
Spiderman 2 captures the essences and spirit of the Spiderman comics than any other movie ever have. It is quite a remarkable movie!
GadoTheLion - 4/29/2014, 12:34 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939

yep,that aunt may speech alone,makes it one of my favorite cbm of all time.how we went from that to "those are the best kinds of promises to break"is just depressing

"staring a man with a puppy dog face and a voice that sounds like a little puppy dog.'' hahaha that was hilarious.

I don't think you're an asshole, yoss. I just think you're kind of a son of a bitch.
MrMartinMarvel - 4/29/2014, 12:38 PM
You kids with your goddamn hipster Spider-Man! When I was a youngster Spider-Man was a selfless hero! Now get off my damn lawn!

Nah, you know I love ya, bro.

Wait a minute...

@ maninfinehat - Still send chills up my spine every time I see it!
Pending - 4/29/2014, 12:40 PM
I love how well these movies implemented the final swing. They showed how much Peter has grown as a character.

TASM on the other hand [frick]s it up by just shoving it at the end like "hey look it's that thing you liked at the end from the other movies hurr durr." completely missed the point of what the final swing meant, bunch of jackasses.
BatManiac - 4/29/2014, 12:41 PM
Garfield's Peter Parker isn't a hipster. If you think he is, I don't think you have a clear grasp on what a hipster actually is.

"Go get em Tiger"

[frick] Yeah!!
0megaDaGod - 4/29/2014, 12:42 PM
Spider Man 1 was one of the greatest origin stories we've ever gotten. Goblin was kinda crap but Dafor is so great he makes you almost not care. I dare you to not catch a feeling the first time he swings after Uncle Ben is dead. Even back then with that weak as CGI they literally make you feel like you did when you first watched Superman The Movie and believed a man could fly. It had a ton of cheese, but was also very gritty in many spots.

Spider Man 2 is so damn good I'm not sure how to put it into words. It was a testament to not only good storytelling, but good filmaking as a whole, especially for a relatively young CBM genre. If all CBMs had that much attention to production quality and were that well put together shit would be cray cray

Spider Man 3 has incredible action, but the writing is just too all over the place and it embraces the cheese factor to an unbearable degree. It's a lot like Iron Man 2 in that it's hated on more than it should be simply because it's so dissapointing. Ironically, both movies drop the ball in the tail end of the second act and can't make up for it with the fireworks at the end

The trilogy truly manifested the essence of what Spider Man is all about, and did so without pandering or filtering it thru our current cynical lazy society. Even the ending of Spider Man 3 pulls the whole thread of responsibility full circle, as though you know that him and MJ will get back together, you can feel the weight of his actions and how it has weighed on her. I really wish Raimi would come back and do another CBM

Wow, I just mentioned on the cinema sins Spidey video that Honest Trailers are better. And here we are.


This Honest trailer was very good and covered all films in a quick and funny way but I kind of liked the Cinemasins ones more because they did them individually and took more time mocking each one.

RetroFit - 4/29/2014, 12:44 PM
Aunt May and Peter's relationship with her were pulled right out of the comics and that's probably my favourite part about that entire trilogy. That little old house, her sweet nature and caring for Peter and how normal that all makes Peter is easily the heart of those movies. Aunt May grounds Peter and is the moral center. Andrew Garfield is a hipster dickhead and all Sally Field's Aunt May has to offer are secrets. Webb really dropped the ball there.
MexicanSuperman - 4/29/2014, 12:44 PM
@Nomis, yea because Peter quitting as Spiderman for most of the movie and letting a man get beat up and mugged while he just walks away, captures the essence and spirit of the Spiderman comics.
0megaDaGod - 4/29/2014, 12:45 PM
@Pending

LMAO!

Not to turn this into a TASM hate thread (it's probably one already) but things like that are why it feels so empty. Especially putting it after the whole broken promises thing. I'm so tired of movies that make me dislike the hero by accident
MrMartinMarvel - 4/29/2014, 12:46 PM
@MexicanSuperman He didn't help that guy because he lost his powers, and you could clearly see that not helping him tore him up inside.
0megaDaGod - 4/29/2014, 12:48 PM
The Raimi films aren't perfect either, but they are easily the second best CBM trilogy of all time.
