Show Notes

It’s Thanksgiving Week, so we have to talk about one of our favorite Thanksgiving movies ever, which of course is none other than 2002’s Spider-Man from director Sam Raimi - don’t worry, we’ll forgive you if you forgot this is a Thanksgiving movie. While the sequel is lauded as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time, the one that started it all should not be forgotten so easily. This fantastic film set the bar so high that it’s the de facto template for the ultimate superhero origin story. Take off your glasses and flex your newly acquired six pack as we discuss the long road to getting the movie made (and all of the less fortunate Spider-Man movies that never were) plus our pitch for a Lonely Island produced Spider-Man flick, Dustin’s insane Dunkin Donuts story, the (totally unfair) acquisition of Holy Propaganda by Nathan and Mallie, and much, much more in this episode that’s so good, you’ll feel “so high” that “you can hear Heaven.”

Spider-Man stars Tobey Maguire, Willem Dafoe, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Cliff Robertson, and Rosemary Harris. Directed by Sam Raimi.
