    I completely agree. You said the film was bi-polar in mood and direction and that's spot on. Raimi did it intentionally in the Evil Dead series but when you're toying with a major comic book character, leave the hardcore camp out. Especially when you're trying to set this dark and ominous tone throughout with the transformation of Spider-man.

    The closest thing I can compare SM3 to is putting pizza, ice cream, and french fries in a blender and trying to drink it.

    Separately, all good ideas, but mixed together in such a crappy hodgepodged way, it becomes awful.

    I never fully bought Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man.

    I'd definitely rather watch the 90's cartoon on the big screen than ever sit through Spider Man 3 again, that's for sure.

    Dark Knight takes its story from many of the comics/graphic novels.

    Yeah, and to Geronimo, Spiderman didn't take some liberties??? The movies were a far cry from the comics.

    The Sandman didn't kill uncle Ben. Man, just thinking about that movie puts me in a dreary mindset.

    Raimi is REALLY good at balancing humor and horror/seriousness. As he did in Evil Dead series, sometimes it was hilarious and horrifying at the same time!

    The problem with doing this with Spiderman was that in the previous 2 films, it had been pretty serious. It wasn't camp in ANY regard. Then Spiderman 3 came out and it was being silly and wonky out the wazoo!

    You can't do that with a series and then suddenly decide to do both. It won't work. It'll come off just as dumb for the sake of it, not for the fun of it.

    That's a perfect analogy.

    Evil Dead I was serious, then he did the comedy thing for 2 and AOD, it worked then. But the first time, he had Bruce Campbell to make it work.

    He clearly lost his touch with Spider-Man. Evil Dead was his baby, Spider Man was a well developed franchise, and he took some liberties he should not have.

    Why the hate for Spiderman 3? As if it sucked any more than the other 2 turds...

    I knew they'd screw Venom up. Should have just left it alone.
