This Film Should Be at Number 1. Since It's the Blockbuster Superhero
Movie. By: Sam Raimi.

The start in an epic trilogy and the beginning of one of spideys best portrayals

The main reason that 2002 is my favourite year for movies.

2 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers


The words "LORD OF THE RINGS" alone make this the best film of 2002

How could any movie beat The Two Towers? Great action sequences, great acting, great characters, great story, great battles... a great movie overall. This entire movie trilogy should forever stay the best in the history of all movies, and especially since it was the movie trilogy that could never be made. The author himself said the books were unsuitable for dramatic representation. The Two Towers is absolutely the best movie of 2002, and nothing should ever beat it. EVER.

The Second movie from the trilogy of the decade - MatrixGuy

9 8 Mile

Best movie of 2002.. but I did love spiderman but this movie is just the movie. I relate to it on personal levels and the struggles he went through. - skyebrntt

This film brings out what true rap is all about, the acting not only from Eminem, but everyone's is awesome! And it's so realistic, all the struggles and problems it's just so amazing, my favorite film of all time.

My favorite movie! I want to become a rapper, but Eminem's role in this film is great enough for that not to be the reason

This movie is so interesting and I like the rap battles - Ajkloth

Love this movie it is awesome 😎 I like it with Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Cameron Diaz. One of the best movies of 2002. I am three years older than 2002, which means I am born in 1999, so... Gangs of New York is amazing ☺
