The Many Sins of 'Spider-Man' and 'Spider-Man 2' Revealed (Video)
With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 release just over a week away, you might be feeling nostalgic for Sam Raimi’s take on Marvel’s wall-crawling web head. Thankfully, CinemaSins is here to disabuse you of that notion with videos listing the faults of both Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2.
From the seemingly continual failure of Spider-Man’s Spider-Sense (especially in the second movie) to the number of times that poor Mary Jane finds herself in jeopardy at particularly advantageous moments for the plot, the two videos manage to skewer the first two big-screen outings for Peter Parker quite aptly.
If nothing else, the team successfully judges Spider-Man as worse than Spider-Man 2; viewers can only hope that a similar video for Spider-Man 3 arrives soon, and that no-one from CinemaSins is hurt compiling the many, many flaws from that one. Watch the videos for both Spider-Man and its sequel below.
