    MOVIES The Untold Truth Of Spider-Man 3 Sony/Columbia BY LISA LAMAN/MAY 9, 2022 1:48 PM EST "Spider-Man 3" was, for better and for worse, a distinctive entry in the original trilogy of "Spider-Man" installments helmed by Sam Raimi. It had some great performances from the likes of Thomas Haden Church and Kirsten Dunst, while amusing elements like Peter Parker's dorky interpretation of being a rebel were fitting for the character.
