YouTube Selection: What Made Raimi’s Spider-Man Unique

Patrick H Willems believes there was something distinct about Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies.

Sam Raimi returned to superheroes with the recent Dr. Strange sequel.  His Spider-Man movies, however, did have a distinct look to them.

What made Raimi’s work so unique?  YouTuber Patrick H Willems has an idea.

Willems, when he isn’t doing some bit about some ongoing storylines he’s supposedly going through, basically thinks Raimi’s movies are unique because of something that, in Willems’s view, other superhero movies don’t really do:  background characters.  Some of them are even played by recognizable actors.  See below for details.
