Yes,Batman Begins is in fact my favorite of the series!

I love this trilogy, all three movies. But I have to say Spider-Man 2 stands out as the best for one simple reason: Alfred Molina as Doc Ock. Perfect.

Well, there is other reasons like a great story and fantastic character development but Doc Ock takes the cake.

Two different scenarios.
Technically yes, but the drama was still felt pretty arbitrary and uneeded. And the tension of 'will they won't they' was still the same, and feeling rather stale at that. I may not have disliked it as much if I hadn't already had to endure their drama from the first film.

Oh I'm not condoning her treatment of John Jameson at all. I generally loathe MJ as a character in all three movies (Spider-Man 3 being her worst outing). I think she's generally a selfish creature who uses men to fill some emotional void in herself.

However I felt she trampled over more men in Spider-Man 1 than she did in Spider-Man 2. I mean to think she basically goes through Flash, Harry, Spidey, and Peter in one movie is hilariously bad. She throws her feminine wiles around like ninja stars in that movie.
Again it's possible that my endurance had just been worn out by the second film, but I still feel that her treatment of John was worse than anything she put Harry or Flash through in the first film. Agreed though; she was still pretty awful 'Spider-man'

Ok, but you still haven't elaborated on what was so bad about this story other than saying you don't like it.
I just think its a silly story idea. If you want him lose his powers I feel that there must be better ways of doing it, I'm not sure what that would be, but there has to be SOMETHING. It's not like I lose my ability to walk or hold objects with my hands simply because I'm going through and emotionally traumatic time. So why would his 'Spider DNA' (or whatever) turn off like that? I know the answer is 'because his problems were related to his being Spider-man' and others will argue 'it's a comic movie, so why take it so seriously', but at the end of the day I felt it was pretty weak reasoning.


Quote:
"Here's your change"

Ock: "You're getting on my nerves"
Spidey: "I have a knack for that"

Train driver: "Any more bright ideas?"
Spidey: "I got a few yeah"

The whole scene in the elevator with Hal Sparks.

There was yahoos when he was delivering the pizzas, in the final swing, and when he went after the two car thieves on the way to MJ's play.
While I would hesitate to call "I got a few yeah" a quip (nitpicking I know), You do have a point here. Mostly I think it just didn't stick out to me. I still feel that Spidey wasn't as fun in this film, but that's just a personal opinion I guess. I should have remembered the elevator scene though.

Fair enough. I'm not questioning your preference. Just some of the points you raised regarding Spider-Man 2.
S'cool.

I don't know if I'd call the drama unneeded. Part of Peter's problem in this movie was letting people he cared about down. Aunt May, Harry, and MJ. All in different ways. But the same theme.

This again was the opposite to Spider-Man 1 where Peter was always there for MJ with a supportive kind word, as opposed to Spider-Man 2 where he was always letting her down because of his life as Spider-Man.

I don't know, Harry said he was crazy about her, and like with John she was clearly using him to fill an emotional void. Though I agree jilting John at the altar is harsher than dumping Harry because she likes Peter.

But her behavior in SM-1 stood out for me more because of the high rota of men she went through, and dating Peter's best friend as opposed to a guy Peter doesn't know. It has to be some kind of record for a superhero love interest.

Have you never heard of people becoming physically sick because of psychological stress? It's the exact same principle here. Except instead of breaking out in a rash, or getting dizzy, or having a panic attack, or throwing up etc, Peter's powers went on the blink. That was part of his deep seated yearning to not be Spider-Man any more and live a normal life.

It's probably because he endured more harsh times in this one as opposed to SM-1, where the only real negative was his Uncle's death. In Spider-Man 2, being Spider-Man was the source of his problems.

I am aware of it and have seen my friends go through it, but something about the execution of the plot-line just didn't ring true to me.

The thing is, I don't HATE the movie/sick story, because if I did I wouldn't rewatch a couple times a year. I think Spider-man 2 was a solid action adventure flick, and a bunch of fun. But there is a distinction I make to 'what I enjoy' and what I feel doesn't quite work if I'm being a bit more critical. The explanation to Spider-man's sickness story just feels a bit silly or convenient (for the plot, not Spider-man obviously).

Now obviously the first film does come with a number of its own flaws as well, but if I HAD to pick my favourite Raimi flick I would choose the first, with Spider-man 2 coming in a close second.

You're probably right. And while I don't have any problem with Spider-man going through tough times (after all, it would be boring if he didn't) I still felt that it came across a bit heavier than was needed. In all fairness I don't know what I would have done differently, but that's how I feel. It is what it is.

I voted for Spider-Man 2. Ock is a brilliant villain, and the Raimi romance is at least bearable. It was the first to get the closest to what Spider-Man should be.

Spider-man 2 is the best of the three in my opinion. A great movie in general.

Spider-Man because it's the one that introduced me to Spider-Man. I also re-watch it more than I re-watch Spider-Man 2. Spider-Man 2 is still fantastic though.

I would Say Spider-Man 2. It showed how relatable Peter Parker was. (Also had the best villain of the franchise.)

3 is my personal favourite, despite being the weakest of the three. There's just so many things I love in that film.

1 is close behind, if it wasn't for some poor (Goblin-related) choices it'd be a flawless film. 2 would be last, even though I'd say it's probably the best film objectively. No idea why, I just look forward to seeing the other two more.

I liked the one where Curt Connors changed his name to Otto Octavius and used Doc Ock's arms, and ended with him redeeming and sacrificing himself.

If being evil made me dance on the strut on and dance on the streets like that I'd probably fight my inner self too.

So what did you think about the one where Curt Connors wasn't Curt Connors at all?

You know, the doctor in TAS-M that seemingly had no family and didn't really have any raving emotions about not having an arm.
