The kids and I watched the 2002 Spider-Man movie a few nights ago (they had many questions after watching No Way Home recently). It’s been at least fifteen years since I last watched it, and I wasn’t sure how it would hold up.
It actually holds up quite well. The kids really enjoyed it, and I was pleasant surprised at how the more deliberate pacing—at least as compared to the break-neck spectacle of the MCU films—left room for some nice character and story moments.
I think we’ll probably watch the sequel soon; it was my favorite of those movies, and No Way Home reminded me how great Doc Oc is. After that, I’m thinking we may catch up on the X-Men movies as well.
