Step back, Tom Holland. It appears Tobey Maguire is still the OG Spider-Man, and it's his Spider-Man 2 of the "Tobey Trilogy' that fans still rate as the best movies made on the friendly neighborhood web-slinger. Of the nine movies that feature Spidey as the titular hero, Maguire's three movies have managed to beat Holland's trilogy, Andre Garfield's 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and its sequel, and the animated 'Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse.

Culture Crave dished out a poll in asking fans to pick three of their favorite Spider-Man movies, and scrolling down the comments, 'Spider-Man 2' was a clear winner. The 2004 movie was directed by Sam Raimi and written by Alvin Sargent, and featured Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Alfred Molina, Rosemary Harris, and Donna Murphy in key roles. Set two years after the events of 'Spider-Man', the second film finds Peter Parker taking on Dr. Otto Octavius who plans to wreak havoc with a dangerous experiment that kills his wife and leaves him neurologically fused to mechanical tentacles.

"Spider-Man 2 The Amazing Spider-Man Spider-Man: No Way Home," a fan commented. "Spider-Man 2 > Spider-Man > Homecoming. All great movies. Spider-Man 3 = No Way Home, both have high highs but are messy and overstuffed. Far From Home isn’t bad but utterly forgettable. TASM2 is silly but entertaining. TASM is pointless, does everything worse, nothing new," another opined. "1. Into the Spiderverse 2. Spider-Man 2 3. No Way Home ——— 4. Spider-Man 5. Spider-Man 3 6. Far From Home 7. TASM1 8. TASM 2 9. Homecoming," a tweet said. "Spider-Man 2 Spider-Man (2002) Spider-Verse," did it for one of the fans.

Much of the reasoning behind picking Maguire's movies were perhaps due to the crisp writing and the performances. Both Parker and Octavius were complex characters and Raimi's direction bought out the best in them. The results were out to see as the film was the third-highest-grossing film of the year and also won the Best Visual Effects at the 77th Academy Awards. It was looked as one of the best superhero films ever made.
