Spider-Man (2002)

"With great power comes great responsibility"

This was one of the first new age super hero films that I really captured and engaged with, the special effects were ground-breaking at the time and still don't look half bad. 

That said I found the film was great, and it takes you through the journey of nerdy Peter Parker to becoming the Amazing Spider-Man with all the troubles and tribulations that come with the role.

Willem Dafoe is not bad as the psychotic Green Goblin but I'm not a big fan of Defoe so it's difficult to take him seriously with him laughing like a lunatic every 2 minutes!

It's always a pleasure to see the Flat-Iron building as the Daily Bugle Headquarters, something that I missed in The Amazing Spider-Man film.

Spider-Man was released in 2002 but teaser trailer of the film were shown from Summer 2001 before the World Trade Center attack which prompted the producers to leave out a very amazing scene from the film.  I've added it below, it's absolutely fantastic and sets the premise for the whole film. 5/5
