Just in time for the release of The Amazing Spider-Man, we’ve decided to go back and revisit Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy to see how well it holds up. We also used it as an excuse to throw in an extra discussion about what is arguably Raimi’s very first superhero film, Darkman. Topics addressed during this special podcast include Tobey Maguire’s bulging eyes, Macho King vs. Macho Man and the much-maligned emo Spidey not to mention the (apparently) divisive opening credits and conspiracy theories about 9/11 propaganda. Is Spider-Man 2 still the best superhero movie ever made? Is Spider-Man 3 still one of the worst? What really constitutes a cameo, anyway? Download and dig on this.
