    It's not a surprise to me that the homecoming car scene is a better set piece than any of the action scenes, given my familiarity of Watts' style via Cop Car. The action scenes are very bland. I get why they hire people like Webb and Watts because they want to focus on the charm (Watts was much more successful than Webb in this regard), but what's missing in both this version and the Garfield ones is the sense of movement being replicated in the visual style. Raimi's camera moved and showed unique perspectives in a way that this just doesn't, and I feel like this is a really critical omission when it comes to Spidey of all superheroes.

    Agreed. I still get goosebumps at some of Raimi's swinging scenes, and I am actively annoyed by Elfman scores, so it doubley annoys me that his musical swells can still work on me. Call it '89 Batman Hangover.

    This is the better movie.
    It's totally not, though.

    It's definitely better than the uber-bland Wonder Woman. Kind of a tie with the GOTG2

    On retrospect, that car scene was the peak of the film for me.
