The best facing the best. Fitting.

No Way Home: All the fan service you could ever want. I dug it. Rules just don't apply to Marvel. Monopoly power.

Spider-Man: No Way Home was not “brilliant, but lazy.” It was simply brilliant. THE best two Spider-Man films here...two of the very best blockbusters of all-time.

Here to save the cinema. Box office is back BABY! Save us my Spider-Lord!

I think people are too caught up in the hype for No Way Home. It's a lot of fun now, but I don't think it will hold up the way that Spider-Man 2 has.

No Way Home is the best Spider-Man movie by far

As great as Spider-Man 2 is, it's not beating the greatest Spider-Man movie ever made.

No Way Home is probably amongst the worst spider-man movies with Far From Home and Spider-Man 3. Spider-Man 2 isn't great either, but it's at least watchable. Even fan service can't make up for bad writing.

No way home is pure greatest

I did enjoy No Way Home a lot more.

No Way Home currently is my favorite MCU movie, but only my 3rd favorite Spider-Man movie.

I absolutely agree with Hambone: No Way Home is clearly the best of the MCU Spider-Man movies so far, but I'd still put both Spider-Man 1 & 2 above it

Spider-Man 2. It doesn't rely on nostalgia and fan-service, just good filmmaking from a director with a distinct style and vision.

NWH by a hair imo, it doesn't rely on nostalgia, the fact that holland's spider-man doesn't get outshined by the other characters shows that

SM2 is overrated, No Way Home is very good and borderline great this is difficult for me, but I’d give a small edge to no way home for entertainment even though SM2 is the better film.

No Way Home was great, definitely the best MCU Spider-Man movie, but it wouldn't even exist in the way it does if it wasn't for the Raimi movies. Some people might say that's unfair, but I don't see how you get around that fact: whatever's great about NWH (and I'd argue that there's a lot that's great about it) derives its greatness, at least in part, dirèctly from Spider-Man 1 & 2 (perhaps less so from 3...), and for that reason I don't think it'll hold up quite as well as Spider-Man 2 demonstrably has.

MCU runs this thing....

No way home is the greatest spiderman movie of all time, and one of the best superhero movies of all time. spiderman 2 is good, but no way home is far better

tobey is still the best spiderman

No way home had the whole to the multiverse bringing back of the previous characters ahead

No Way Home is quickly becoming the most overrated (comic book) film of all time. While not being the worst Spider-Man film by any means (that spot is for Rise of Electro to keep), it's just so dumb and annoying, with most of the important characters either being reduced to extras (Ned, MJ) or, for some reason, being depicted as the most idiotic buffoons ever (Spidey, Strange). The entire premise of that ominous spell erasing everybody's memories but instead opening gaps within the multiverse is utterly ridiculous and poorly written, in particular because of the two main protagonists' stupid actions. Adding insult to injury is the fact that there's no real villain, which is always bad for an action movie. I actually like the idea of bringing back most of the previous villains and both former Spider-Men through the multiverse and adding them to the MCU, but it's so poorly executed that it's the weakest of Tom Holland's entries as Spider-Man, one of the least appealing MCU films in general, and no match to the excellent Spider-Man 2 from 2004.

Much though I enjoyed the shameless fanservice of NWH, Raimi's second Spidey is the best live-action Spider-Man movie to date imo

Only one of these is a movie.

I agree totally with CeeTee. I think this is Tom Holland's best Spider-Man movie though.....

No Way Home is a really good movie with a near-perfect ending, but Spider-Man 2 excels in nearly everything. It crafted a perfect protagonist, a layered and complex villain, had great performances from nearly everyone, and was an inspirational and uplifting story. It's the best in the trilogy and arguably still the greatest Spider Man movie ever made.

No Way Home is enjoyable and the third best Spider-Man movie, only behind Raimi's Spider-Man 1 and 2.

No Way Home was a better film.
