4. Spider-Man (2002)
When it was announced he was going to helm the big budget production of Spider-Man, most people went "Who?" and ran to check who he was on their 28 bit modems. But it was the right choice. He brought the right amount of camp and human drama to Peter Parker, while staying pretty close to the source material to the delight of comic fans worldwide. There is very little to dissect of this one. Great story-telling, Toby Maguire aces Peter Parker's teen-age nerdishness and of course, Kirsten Dunst's boobies
thrilled comic geeks worldwide. After the shock of 9/11, his Spider-Man made a valiant attempt at invoking the tough New York spirit in healing the wound that struck the nation. In one particular scene, added after the attack, a group of New Yorkers band together to fight the Green Goblin and save Spider-Man. Toby Maguire won accolades in his role and topped it off by winning MTV's Best Kiss Award in 2003.
