After years of incessantly mentioning this movie in top 10 lists and while reviewing other superhero films, it is finally time for a full, in-depth retrospective of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, the greatest superhero movie of all time. As we did last week with our look back at the original Raimi film, we’re preparing for the launch of Insomniac’s PS4 Spider-Man by revisiting some of our favorite Spider-Man media ever, and Spider-Manmedia doesn’t get any better than Raimi’s 2004 sequel, one of the truly great works of commercial art this century and a standard-bearer for all other comic-book adaptations. We give it our customary in-depth treatment, but we also cover a few other topics this week – including Sean’s impressions of Yakuza Kiwami 2 for the PS4, a few pieces of news including Xbox’s new ‘All Access’ program, and our shared joy at discovering an old Spider-Man concept album from 1975 – in this jam-packed, webhead-heavy episode.
