I, Tom Laurie, and my sister, Leona Laurie, are (re)watching every Marvel movie so we can cheerfully and critically discuss them. In what is indisputably our latest episode, we’re talking about Spider-Man

In episode 4 of Marvel Us, my sister and I rehash Spider-Man, the Sam Raimi origin story / escapade. I enrich this exercise by sharing facts and trivia about the film. There is humor. You will enjoy this.

Some things we discuss:

  • How upside-down kissing in a rain-drenched alley would be gross in real life
  • The problematic depiction of M.J. in this trilogy
  • Callbacks to Richard Donner‘s Superman movies
  • If there are 15 spiders in a lab that can give you superpowers, why does just one kid get them?
  • New York real estate
  • My resemblance to Topher Grace
  • So much more!
