    Not a high bar to surpass imo


    Are you on the square?
    Are you on the level?

      Me neither, but there some people who continue to argue that the Sam Rami movies are vastly superior to Homecoming and Far From Home. Which I disagree with, largely because I think Holland is a much more believable Peter Parker and teenager. Not that the Rami movies were bad, mind you.

          • There's lots of Harry Potter movies. You're going to have to narrow that down.

                The Rami films certainly have their flaws, but I think they succeed in a way that few superhero films do: being Sincere.

                They are films that aren't afraid to be very silly, very tropey, and very emotionally vulnerable. While other superhero films of that period did everything in their power to pretend to be "serious movies" ("what, were you expecting yellow spandex?"), the Sam Rami Spiderman films were exceedingly open and unashamed of their subject matter. While this was often goofy and melodramatic, it also freed it to be grand and resonant, like High Opera. Or campy theater.

                It's in that lens that I've come to appreciate the trilogy, now that I'm older.



                Also, it's through a particular analysis of these films that I was introduced to a particularly fascinating philosopher, the late Robert Moore.

                • It: Chapter Two might not have been as good as the previous installment, but it felt very necessary right now.

                  Folks need to be reminded that even though the predatory monster masquerading as a buffoonish clown is making you question your sense of reality and dividing everyone with hatred and fear, that if you unite and stand against it, you can win.
