Spider-Man motion pictures ranked from worst to finest
10. Spider-Man 3 (2007)
A bizarre parody of the sooner, much better Sam Raimi Spider-Man motion pictures, Spider-Man 3 was closely criticized upon its launch and rightfully so.
But the years have been sort to it, partly because of the reservoir of memes that advanced in its wake. No film — save possibly Lord of the Rings or the Star Wars prequel trilogy — has been as accountable for as many GIFs and memes as Spider-Man 3. In that respect re-watching it’s a new, distinctive expertise. Upon its launch it was bloated and unusual, in 2021 it is an unimaginable quantity of enjoyable.
— Mark Serrels
Where to look at it: Spider-Man 3 obtainable to lease or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and is obtainable to stream on Starz, which prices $8.99 per thirty days after a one week free trial.
9. Venom (2018)
I watched Venom on a primary date and promptly fell asleep midway via. In the center of a loud, crowded cinema. My apologies to followers of the toothy symbiote.
— Steph Panecasio
Where to look at it: Venom is accessible to lease or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, or to stream by way of FuboTV, which prices $64.99 per thirty days.
8. Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021)
It’s uncommon for a sequel to outperform the unique, however Venom: Let There Be Carnage does so in each potential means. It’s funnier by a mile, the motion is way improved and the general story is significantly extra compelling. Plus this film really finishes the origin story framework began within the first movie, with our fundamental character lastly deciding to be the “the deadly protector” anti-hero Venom. If you appreciated the primary film, you are going to love this sequel. And in case you weren’t completely bought on the unique Venom, there’s each likelihood you will like this film much more.
— Russell Holly
Where to look at it: Let There Be Carnage opened Oct. 1 within the US, and can hit UK theaters Oct. 15, whereas Australia has to attend till Nov. 25.
7. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
All the work The Amazing Spider-Man did to arrange Peter as a rough-around-the-edges Spider-Man who nonetheless had some determining to do when it comes to his ethical compass, got here crashing in on itself on this sequel.
Peter grew to become probably the most chatty and assured Spidey iteration, torn between dragging Gwen into his drama, rekindling friendships from when he was a barely aware pre-teen (no marvel Harry was confused when Peter turned up at his door step) and exploding a poor man with electrical energy. Let’s undoubtedly not point out the more and more awkward scenes with Aunt May.
As bloated and chaotic as Maguire’s Spider-Man 3. It’ll offer you nightmares in regards to the Green Goblin and never for the precise causes.
— Jennifer Bisset
Where to look at it: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is accessible to lease or purchase from Amazon Prime Video.
6. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
In a post-blip world, this Spider Man flick does an ideal job of returning to the core of what I really like in regards to the motion pictures normally. The romance and awkwardness between Peter and MJ provides a very nostalgic really feel to this one, even when the remainder of the movie is extra flash than substance at occasions.
The results are spectacular, the twist is okay and Jake Gyllenhaal is a charismatic addition to the franchise — however what we care most about is Peter and his pals. Which is precisely what these movies thrive on! Yes, he swings and has loopy spider expertise, however he is additionally a highschool child with a loopy crush on his finest buddy. Seeing him cope with that in addition to an element-controlling villain hellbent on destroying the world and the grief from the loss of life of his mentor? That’s what I’m right here for.
— Steph Panecasio
Where to look at it: Spider-Man: Far From Home is accessible to lease or purchase from Amazon Prime Video, and in addition obtainable to stream by way of FuboTV, which prices $64.99 per thirty days.
5. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
I’m right here to let you know that this film’s rap for being a reasonably mediocre movie is — effectively, it is solely considerably truthful.
The fittingly named Marc Webb, who directed (500) Days of Summer, made the entire first third of this film really feel like a small impartial movie. Peter goggling at Gwen from throughout the classroom. ‘Til Kingdom Come, initially written by Coldplay to be carried out with Johnny Cash, taking part in over the skateboard scene.
And then there’s Peter’s Spider-Man actions really mirroring skateboarding strikes, in addition to being extra spider-like than his counterparts. Andrew Garfield’s stutter, jazz arms and normal endearing weirdness. The surprisingly horny naked chest scene.
Some elements of this film rule. If solely its comedy wasn’t so cringe and compelled. If solely there weren’t so many miserable deaths. Garfield is underrated and I hope he will get one other likelihood by way of the multiverse in Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man 3.
— Jennifer Bisset
Where to look at it: The Amazing Spider-Man is accessible to lease or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and in addition obtainable to stream on Starz, which prices $8.99 per thirty days.
4. Spider-Man (2002)
As somebody who’s deathly afraid of spiders, I held out on watching this for the longest time, however regardless of some moments the place the arachnophobia bought its fangs into me, it is effectively well worth the watch. From the overwhelmingly theatrical portrayal of Green Goblin via to some genuinely shifting moments (Uncle Ben, I’m lookin’ at you), the entire thing was a journey from begin to end.
Sure, watching it again now has me cringing at a number of the memes, but it surely’s a genuinely nice start line with some spectacular motion and precisely the correct quantity of ridiculousness for a superhero film. Sam Raimi balanced the foolish with the intense — one thing extra trendy superhero flicks ought to take inspiration from. It’s not all solemn faces and punching! All in all, it is price it only for the performances from JK Simmons and Willem Dafoe alone.

3. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
It’s onerous to get enthusiastic about one other reboot. But when Spider-Man Homecoming got here alongside, bringing Spider-Man into the MCU, it was clear this one could be price it. In bypassing the character’s well-worn origin story, the franchise bought a contemporary feeling launch that higher served Peter Parker’s improvement and ensured a extra stable basis for the observe up.
Peter, MJ, Ned and the remainder of the crew made for plausible highschool college students — quirky and nonetheless new to the world. And as a lot as angst is constructed into Spider-Man’s DNA together with these spidey-bits, Tom Holland delivered a lighter, virtually irritatingly buoyant Peter Parker, just like the energetic child brother you may’t assist however love.
— Erin Carson
Where to look at it: Spider-Man: Homecoming is accessible to lease or purchase from Amazon Prime Video, and in addition obtainable to stream by way of FuboTV, which prices $64.99 per thirty days.
2. Spider-Man 2 (2004)
Pizza time. The second live-action Spidey journey capitalizes on the momentum constructed up within the first film and sends Peter Parker on an unimaginable journey that riffs on the traditional Spider-Man No More comedian storyline superbly.
It additionally boasts a killer villain in Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus. The surgical procedure room scene is traditional Sam Raimi and stays completely chilling 17 years later. His battle with Spidey on the practice is a visible pleasure too — No Way Home higher do that man justice.
The tie-in online game was wonderful too; it captured the enjoyment of web-swinging round Manhattan to a level that wasn’t equaled till the 2018 PS4 recreation.
— Sean Keane
Where to look at it: Spider-Man 2 is accessible to lease of purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and in addition obtainable to stream on Starz, which prices $8.99 per thirty days.
1. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
Sony Pictures Animation
Into the Spider-Verse is so good, we have now two entries on the purpose.
Into the Spider-Verse is not simply one of the best Spider-Man film ever made, it is one of the best superhero film ever made, interval.
The fast hearth tempo, the visible prospers, the razor-tight script, the pitch excellent characterization. Into The Spider-Verse sidesteps tropes and creates a world so dense with particulars it rewards a number of, a number of viewings. It’s as unforgettable on its tenth viewing because it was on the primary. An ideal film.
— Mark Serrels
Mark Serrels is totally proper. That being stated, Into the Spider-Verse is a lot extra than simply one of the best superhero film — it is an animated function that experiments with visible aesthetics, variable framerates and groundbreaking methods to current us with one thing utterly not like every other piece of function animation in the marketplace. This Spider-Man is saving us from the mediocrity of one other by-the-numbers animated movie.
It would not harm that it is the solely Spider-Man movie courageous sufficient to let Peter Parker develop up and transfer on, both. Miles Morales endlessly.
