    The first Spider-Man was pretty close. The only major complaint that I would have with that first one is with MJ as the next door neighbor.

One thing about the spiderman movie bothered me. Spidey NEVER cracked jokes. The spidey I remembered CONSTANTLY cracked jokes and gave witty banter in battle. If spidey doesn't taunt, tease, and joke constantly in the villain fight he is NOT spidey.

Watch the first one the ring with Buzzsaw and in his early fights with Norman, he does taunt him consistently. In the second one, he did not, which could have been explained by the relationship between him and Octavius at the beginning of the movie. Yeah, it was changed to make Octavius like a mentor to Parker (more along the lines of Curt Connors) and was more respectful as a result. There was also a darker tone to that movie. In the third film, I think that there was more focus on the villains and their background than on Parker & Spidey. They were trying to make the villains too likeable/sympathetic, and as a result they cut out the talk. You also have to add to the darkness/seriousness (no pun intended) of Parker in the black costume, which would take out a lot of that banter.

You are right though, there needs to be more taunting and joking...that's what made Spidey great in the books.
