Spider-Man Movies Ranked

Spider-Man was always one of my favorite superheros when I was a little kid along with Iron Man. But when the first Sam Raimi film came out, I had since “grown out” of such things, and didn’t really care all that much, despite all the buzz going around my peers. It wasn’t until my uncle gave me a copy of that movie that I fell in love with the web crawler far more than I ever have, and have now actively paid attention to the movies ever since.

So here I am today, fresh off of seeing the latest Spider-Man: No Way Home, (this post contains no spoilers) and before that I watched all of the other films leading up to it, so I decided to rank them all from worst to best in my opinion. I was surprised, because some movies moved up and down the list for me since the last time I’ve watched them all. So here goes.


Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)


This movie is garbage. Especially watching it right off the heels of the other two series’. They tried to do something different with this one, and I get it. They also tried to make it fit more into the tech-heavy Avengers universe. Despite this being the only preexisting Spider-Man, not to mention one who kicked butt in Captain America: Civil War, we’re treated to two hours of an incompetent, Stark tech-dependent¬† Spider-Man who tries his best to prove he’s a hero worthy enough to join the Avengers.

With almost no action, boring, pointless villains, and no character development at all for anyone other than Peter, it’s really a terrible movie.

And seriously, who cast Aunt May? She looks like she’s 38 tops. And when she’s in close contact with Peter, it’s hard to tell if she’s his sister or wife. I mean it’s always possible to have an aunt that young, but she must have took him in when she was in her mid-20’s, which is also possible, but ugh.

And Tom Holland’s voice is so annoying.


Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

This one just toes the line over garbage into almost decent territory. It’s certainly more entertaining, but somehow has even less action than the first movie, at least for Spider-Man. This movie focuses on Peter trying to figure out his spider sense, and his love life, which is odd. Homecoming ends with him being sad that his crush moves away, and this one starts with him being head over heels for another girl. Those raging teenage hormones. The last scene is pretty cool though.


Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021)

This movie is actually between good and very good. Tom Holland’s performance was excellent, and I didn’t want to rip my ear drums out for once. This movie is basically a love-letter to the Spider-Man franchise. The return of villains from the old movies being the big draw here, and is the only reason I ever would have watched this movie.

Again, it’s weak on action, though there is certainly a lot more of it. They focused much more on telling a story in this one instead of utilizing the villains to their full potential.

That being said, it is a thousand times better than the other two movies in this trilogy, but could have been so much more, at least to me. And does it really count if it’s good only because it takes characters from older Spider-Man movies to make it good? Hmm…


The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

This movie’s very good. Andrew Garfield is a wonderful actor and portrays Spider-Man greater than anyone. I don’t like how Peter and Gwen go from talking for the first time to madly in love within two or three scenes though, but it’s fine I suppose. Telling some mysterious story about Peter’s father is new and interesting too.


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

I really didn’t like this movie when I first saw it. But each time I’ve seen it, I’ve liked it more and more, so that now I think it’s better than it’s prequel. It’s very emotional, the Spider-Man scenes are incredible, the best out of any movie in fact, the acting is fantastic.

I realize why I didn’t like it at first though. It’s a very unbalanced movie. The first half hour is jaw-dropping. The second is very good. After that, it just becomes so many plots being developed and no Spider-Man and then suddenly there’s villains and Spider-Man again. We get one fight scene thrown in at the end, and bam, end of movie. Finally, after like seeing it for the fifth time, I really appreciate this movie.


Spider-Man (2002)

The movie that started it all. Almost 20 years later, it’s starting to age, but still ultimately holds up. The characters and their growth in this film, the absolutely horrifying green goblin, and all the emotional roller coasters make this a great movie.


Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Initially, I was very disappointed with this film, but like Amazing Spider-Man 2, I like this one more each time I see it, and have now realized how good this movie really is. It’s very deep, very dark, and very intense. Just a heavy kind of movie, you know?

Truthfully, the only reason I didn’t like it at first was because I thought there was too many villains, which is so common nowadays that no one would think twice about it, and honestly, because Venom is my favorite villain ever and he’s in it for like 10 minutes. And the emotional drama/trauma going on was far too much for my 17-year-old-self to really relate to and understand. But as an adult, dang… So I apologize movie, you are truly wonderful!


Spider-Man 2 (2004)


For a 17 year old movie, this is still one of the best superhero movies of all time. It’s got drama, romance, and tons of action. The 2.1 cut is even better. Focusing on Peter wanting to live a life of his own so he could be happy, the world simply doesn’t allow that, as friend and foe alike try to kill him. I love it so, so much.

And there you have it. The Sam Raimi trilogy is truly wonderful. And that is because out of all those films, they balance them so well. There’s plenty of plot and character development, with plenty of Spider-Man scenes in between. That is what makes them so good. Unfortunately the MCU doesn’t seem to think it’s all that important to show their superheros doing superhero stuff, which to me, is the whole reason to see a superhero movie. Despite that, there’s hardly any character development at all in the MCU Spider-Man movies too. What are they doing? But I digress.

Okay…College Might Be the Biggest Scam Ever

A little while ago, I made a post about how insurance and the current system we use for it is like the biggest scam ever, but now I think college just might be instead.

For starters, how in the world is college so freakin’ expensive!?!? Like think about it. If a school has 3000 students, who pay $30,000 a year, that college is getting 90 million dollars a year. And what they heck are you paying for? Sure dormitories and meal plans can be expensive, a little too expensive, but even if you commuted to a school, it’s the classes that are truly ridiculous.

The average cost per credit is $594 dollars, which for an average 3 credit course, is $1782 per class. For WHAT!?!? What do they do with all this money? Who does it go to? Not the people teaching you, that’s for sure! Is knowledge that you will ultimately forget worth that? Especially when half the crap they force you to take is stuff you’ve already learned multiple times throughout your life and/or is entirely useless!!

And don’t forget books! The books are more expensive than a brand spanking new PS4! WTF!?!? And every class requires them, and yet half the classes won’t have you use them very often, and I’ve had classes that said, “we won’t use them this semester.” Even buying them used will cost you around $200 for one measly battered old book.

So you spend all this money going to school for far too long a time, when really, for the most part, you can learn everything you need to know about a job in like 2 months with on the job training that someone should be paying YOU for. But no, all these people go to school so that they come out ready to start their lives, only to realize there are no jobs in their field, or the market is so damn competitive that getting your desired job is like winning the lottery. I can count the number of people who I know who have successfully used their degrees and got into a field they desired on one hand.

So all these people get out of college is some very expensive knowledge, most that they will forget within a year, that of which they haven’t forgotten already, and a very copious loan they will struggle to pay off for the next 15 years.

And this is how colleges really have you by the scrotum. Desperate, these folks decide to GO BACK TO SCHOOL to make themselves more marketable! That’s right, the Bachelor’s Degree nowadays is the equivalent of a High School diploma 15 years ago. It’s all about the post grad certifications! So these foolish people spend even more money, go into even more debt, just to have another useless piece of paper and still can’t find a job. All the while they are working nights at a McDonald’s or QuickChek, getting payed minimum wage, trying to afford rent, their girlfriends begging them for a ring. They end up stuck their for 5 years before being promoted to manager where they make 11 bucks an hour now and before they know it, they’ve made a career out of it, while their fancy diplomas shrivel in a closet somewhere.

And what really solidifies how much college is a scam is the fact that half the jobs out there ask that you have a four year degree, but don’t give a rat’s arse what it’s in. They just want to see that you went to school. What kind of sense does that make? Going to college doesn’t prepare anybody more than someone who doesn’t for these jobs that ask this. To me, these jobs are saying, “Hey you with the huge loan! I bet you’re desperate for a job that isn’t crazy manual labor! Want to put that degree to use? We’ll under pay the hell out of you, because we will take advantage of that desperation. But hey, at least your degree isn’t wasted, huh?”

And what about Associate’s Degrees? Yeah, remember those? Why do they even exist, they are like a GED. They might even be more worthless. People with these might even be smarter than those with higher degrees though, for they are only in half the debt.

Realistically, people who didn’t go to college should be prime picking for jobs. While young adults go waste their money partying like idiots for four years, these uneducated folk are out in the real world, experiencing life, learning how to make a living, thus they are vastly more mature and experienced than any college student could ever hope to be when they graduate. But these poor folk, just because they decided not to go to school, will never make more than 18 bucks an hour.

And I thought we live in a country that’s all about trying not to discriminate? Equal opportunity!

But seriously, think about this….


If no one went to college, they would all close. The government is most definitely behind the ever-growing expenses of colleges. They force us to think we need these degrees, thus we pay for college, and the economy benefits greatly. That’s the real goal of college.

But if we didn’t go, we’d be sticking it to those greedy a-holes, and at the same time, any job would be open to anyone. If degrees didn’t exist, you would no longer see such unrealistic job requirements. Seriously, half the jobs out there say

4 year degree required

5 years experience in field

knowledge in these 5 different areas.

Jobs don’t want to train people, because it costs them money, so they look for people who simply do not exist. So instead of all humans being completely desperate and miserable our whole lives as we do our best to struggle against impossible odds to survive, I ask, what if we made the jobs desperate for us?

Once they realize no one meets their impossible criteria, wouldn’t it get easier to get a good job. Granted, they would just lower wages beyond belief, and even more people would apply, but maybe not if people just refused these wages and no one took any crap from employers.


It’s just so sad. If an entire country united, we could change it so life wasn’t complete hell. This, unfortunately, is the definition of impossible.

But seriously. F college. Fight it. Oppress it, instead of them oppressing us.
