Votes: 641,004 | Gross: $403.71M
Solid popcorn movie and interesting Spider-Man's genesis with some memorable scenes. However, Green Goblin's character was very exaggerated and contributed to infantilization of what could have been a great superhero movie. 6/10

Votes: 501,507 | Gross: $373.59M
Sam Raimi's direction is top notch, along with the performances. Alfred Molina was great as Dr. Octopus and the whole movie was instantly gripping. Finally, Spider-Man movie got some new style (probably thanks to director's horror roots in Evil Dead trilogy :P) and made up for all the mistakes of the 1st part. 8/10

Votes: 320,936 | Gross: $127.00M
Despite some plotholes and redundant threads, it was positively sentimental and moving piece of sci-fi cinema (well, Spielperg produced it!) which revived a child in me for a while. Great music, too. 8/10
