But as a standalone film, how does it actually stack up against previous films? Considering the fact that you need to watch all of the previous Spider-Man episodes to enjoy No Way Home, does that work like a good movie on its own?

Spider-Man movies ranked from worst to best
11. Spider-Man 3 (2007)
A bizarre parody of the previous and much better Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, Spider-Man 3 received heavy criticism upon release, and rightly so.
But the years have been good for him, in part thanks to the reservoir of memes that have evolved in his wake. No movie – with the possible exception of Lord of the Rings or the prequel Star Wars trilogy – has been as responsible for as many GIFs and memes as Spider-Man 3. In that regard, reviewing it is. a new and unique experience. When it came out it was bloated and weird, in 2021 it’s an incredible amount of fun.
Where to watch it: Spider-Man 3 available for rent or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and is available in streaming on Starz, which costs $ 8.99 per month after a one-week free trial.
10. Venom (2018)
I watched Venom on a first date and quickly fell asleep halfway through. In the middle of a noisy and crowded cinema. My apologies to the toothy symbiote fans.

9. Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021)
It’s rare for a sequel to surpass the original, but Venom: Let There Be Carnage does it in every way it can. It’s funnier than a mile, the action is much improved, and the overall story is considerably more compelling. Additionally, this movie actually ends the original story setting started in the first movie, with our main character ultimately deciding to be the Venom anti-hero “the Deadly Protector”. If you liked the first movie, you’ll love this sequel. And if you weren’t totally convinced by the original Venom, chances are you like this movie a lot more.

Where to watch it: Let There Be Carnage opened on October 1 in the US and hits UK theaters on October 15, while Australia will have to wait until November 25.
8. The Incredible Spider-Man 2 (2014)
All the work The Amazing Spider-Man did to make Peter a rough Spider-Man who still struggled to understand in terms of a moral compass, crashed into itself in this sequel.
Peter has become the most talkative and confident iteration of Spidey, torn between dragging Gwen into his drama, rekindling friendships from when he was a barely conscious pre-teen (no wonder Harry was confused when Peter arrived at his door) and explode a poor man with electricity. We’re certainly not talking about the increasingly awkward scenes with Aunt May.
As bloated and chaotic as Maguire’s Spider-Man 3. It will give you nightmares about the Green Goblin and not for the right reasons.
Where to watch it: The incredible Spider-Man 2 is available for rent or purchase on Amazon Prime Video.
7. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
In a post-blip world, this Spider Man movie does a great job of getting back to the core of what I love about movies in general. The romance and awkwardness between Peter and MJ gives this one a truly nostalgic feel, even if the rest of the movie is at times more flash than substance.
The effects are impressive, the twist is good, and Jake Gyllenhaal is a charismatic addition to the franchise – but what interests us most is Peter and his friends. This is exactly what these movies thrive on! Yes, he swings and has some crazy spider skills, but he’s also a high school kid with a crazy crush on his best friend. See him handle it also as an element-controlling villain determined to destroy the world and the grief of his mentor’s death? That’s what I’m here for.

Where to look this: Spider-Man: Far From Home is available for rent or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and also available to stream via FuboTV, which costs $ 64.99 per month.
6. The Incredible Spider-Man (2012)
I’m here to tell you that the rap of this movie for being a pretty mediocre movie is – well, that’s just a fair bit.
The aptly named Marc Webb, who directed (500) Days of Summer, made the entire first third of this film a small independent film. Peter looks at Gwen from across the classroom. ‘Til Kingdom Come, originally written by Coldplay to star with Johnny Cash, playing on the skateboard scene.
And then there are the movements of Peter’s Spider-Man which actually mirror the movements of the skateboard, while also looking more like a spider than its counterparts. Andrew Garfield’s stutter, jazz hands, and endearing general weirdness. The surprisingly sexy bare chest scene.
Parts of this movie rule. If only his the comedy was not so cranky and forced. If only there hadn’t been so many depressing deaths. Garfield is underrated and hopefully he gets another chance through Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man 3 Multiverse.
Where to watch it: The incredible Spider-Man is available for rent or purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and also available in streaming on Starz, which costs $ 8.99 per month.
5. Spider-Man (2002)
As someone with a deadly fear of spiders, I have been keen to watch this for a very long time, but despite there being times when arachnophobia took my fangs out of me, it was worth it. From the extremely theatrical performance of Green Goblin to some truly emotional moments (Uncle Ben, I’m looking at you), it was all a ride from start to finish.
Sure, watching it now makes me back down from some of the memes, but it really is a great place to start with awesome action and exactly the right amount of ridicule for a superhero movie. Sam Raimi balanced the idiot with the serious – something more modern superhero movies should take inspiration from. It’s not just solemn faces and punches! All in all, it’s worth it just for the performances of JK Simmons and Willem Dafoe.

4. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
It’s hard to get excited for another reboot. But when Spider-Man Homecoming arrived, bringing Spider-Man into the MCU, it was clear this one was worth it. Bypassing the character’s well-worn origin story, the franchise got a new sense of launch that better served Peter Parker’s development and provided a more solid foundation for the follow-up.
Peter, MJ, Ned and the rest of the team made believable high school kids – quirky and still new to the world. And even though angst is built into Spider-Man’s DNA with these bits of spidey, Tom Holland delivered a lighter, almost irritating Peter Parker, like the energetic little brother You Can’t Help But Me From. to like.

3. Spider-Man: No Coming Home (2021)
And There you go. After all the hype, the record-breaking trailer, the rumors of the return of the villains – Spider-Man: No Way Home isn’t at the top of this list, but let’s just say it’s great, super satisfying. Essentially a culmination of two decades of Spider-Man movies, it manages to serve fans, string together a remarkably clean plot (unless you’re careful and know nothing about Spider-Man in general), and uplift Peter. Tom Holland’s Parker in mature, interesting, and complex territory worthy of seeing him take over as the next Tony Stark. Oh, and he has his own version of Spider-Man pointing to the Spider-Man meme. A winner.
2. Spider-Man 2 (2004)
Pizza time. The second live-action Spidey adventure capitalizes on the momentum built up in the first film and sends Peter Parker on an incredible journey that riffs on the classic Spider-Man is no more beautifully comic script.
He also has a killer villain in Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus. The operating room scene is Sam Raimi’s classic and remains totally creepy 17 years later. His battle with Spidey on the train is also a visual joy – No Way Home better do this guy justice.
the linked video game was excellent too; it captured the joy of surfing the web around Manhattan to a degree that was unmatched prior to the 2018 PS4 game.

1. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
Sony Pictures Animation
Into the Spider-Verse is so good, we’ve got two entries on the verge.
Into the Spider-Verse isn’t just the best Spider-Man movie ever made, it’s the best superhero movie ever made, period.
The fast firing pace, the visual flourishes, the tight script, the perfect characterization. Into The Spider-Verse bypasses the tropes and creates a world so dense with detail that it rewards many, many viewings. It is as unforgettable on his tenth visit as on the first. A perfect film.
Mark Serrels is absolutely right. That being said, Into the Spider-Verse is much more than the best superhero movie – it’s an animated film that experiments with visual aesthetics, varying frame rates, and revolutionary techniques to present us with something. something completely different from any other animation item on the market. This Spider-Man saves us from the mediocrity of another animated movie by numbers.
It doesn’t hurt that this is the only Spider-Man movie brave enough to let Peter Parker grow up and move on. Miles Morales forever.
