So I'm not sure where people get the idea that SM1 is more well liked by the public.
Part of that is because nerd squabbles result in people signing up to new accounts just for the sole purpose of voting negatively for one over the other. When TDK came out, a whole bunch of Batman fans voted 1 out of 10 for Return of the King and The Godfather. In turn, fans of those films voted 1's for TDK. Stupid things like this call public opinion polls, like RT or IMDB into question.
TASM has a fan in the new generation of Spider-Man fans. SM1 still has many whom prefer it vastly over Webb's vision. Wake me up in 10 more years, and we'll see which stands the test of time. I predict it will be SM1 because it was a game changer for its time. TASM wasn't. It was just another decent superhero film.
