Before going into my thoughts on Homecoming, let me first reflect on the past big screen Spiderman efforts that came and went. Before seeing this movie, I considered the 2002 Sam Raimi film with Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst to be the definitive take on the classic Web Slinger I grew up loving the Fox cartoon of. Raimi's trilogy not only felt like the superior Spiderman films made in comparison to the Amazing Spiderman ones but they also had something the Amazing Spiderman films were severely lacking in and that's heart. Spiderman 2 remains one of the definitive Superhero movies ever made as it tackles Peter's struggle to balance out his two lives both as Peter Parker and the other as Spiderman. While Spiderman 3 is unquestionably the worst film out of the Raimi series, ending the trilogy with a whimper in many fans eyes, it still works as a somewhat satisfying closure to that trilogy as it completes Peter Parker, Mary Jane's, and Harry Osborn's trio friendship.
