I'd say this, SM2, and Spider-Verse are a trinity of perfection.
i haven't seen SM:ItSV yet, but heard it's incredible. i would definitely put this in the top tier of spidey movies. honestly i think homecoming and this knock everything else i've seen down a notch. tobey was a great peter, but merely a passable spidey. garfield was a good spidey but a mess as peter. tom holland is the best of both worlds.

unfortunately, that scene - while great - is also disappointing to me. there is no elevated train like that in midtown, you have to go above 125th in manhattan, or anywhere in queens, or to the outskirts of brooklyn and the bronx to see elevated tracks like that. playing fast and loose with the environment is fine for fictional places like gotham, or metropolis, or baltimore, but NYC is such a part of the spidey story, that it's an issue. the only thing that makes up for it is the car full of passengers who help him when he passes out.
