I think I'll wait until this movie can be found in a bargain bin. What kind of annoying character did Bruce Campbell play this time round?

I actually didn't hate most of this movie. Even though the dancing scene almost made me murder the person sitting nearest to me, i still enjoyed at least 8/10 of the movie altogether. Then again, I pretty much force myself to love any movie based on a comic book. Except the Hulk movie... I despise the hulk movie with the very essence of my being.

They should have had sandman and hydroman, then the third villain could be that mud monster they formed... I never actually saw this movie, when I saw they took away venom's humoungos (spelling lol) muscles and green spit It took away all my desire to see it (run-on sentence lol).

I didn't hate this as much as you did, Proto, but I sure wasn't wild about it. I think you're right that the biggest problem comes from over crowding. Although there have been several comic movies I've liked a lot, I've yet to see one I didn't think suffered from over crowding. You only get about two hours. Tell one story and tell it well.

batman begins kinda had multiple villians, but yeah spiderman 3 was just silly. The others were fantastic 2 really got my hopes up and this one shot them down. It was extra cheesey and just plain silly, in ways that didn't fit the series. oh well maybe 4 will be better, every one stumbles here and there.

I'd give it two stars myself, and one of those is for getting to see Bruce Campbell as a Maître d'.

I hate, hate, hated this movie with a passion. Spider-Man 3 was such a huge, crushing disappointment. Spider-Man 2 is without a doubt (in my mind) the greatest comic book movie ever.

Two horrible words : EMO PETER!

At least we got to see a bit of Gwen Stacy, at last. That was something, right?

Yeah, I was waiting the whole time to see Gwendy, and then she's nothing more than a way to make Mary Jane jealous.

Raimi couldn't help it. Evil Dead was calling out to him.

I could have sworn I read somewhere that Raimi was forced to add Venom to the movie, but I don't recall where.

If they had removed Sandman from the movie, it would have been better served.

I liked it. Always something going on..because there are a million characters but still. Could have been better, could have been worse. But it didn't bore me.

The "emo" thing is annoying. I guess because his hair is black he MUST be emo. He was like..a womanizing asshole. Not exactly emo.

And, yes, he cried. His wife-to-be broke up with him. The entire world must be made out of stone hearted bad asses who would clearly not flinch if such a thing were to happen to them.

Fuck, Mary Jane was awful. By this movie, she already knows Peter's Spider-Man. She has absolutely no fucking reason to treat him like a total fuckface. She's as guilty in this shitfest of a movie as Peter Parker is.

I believe that the spirit of Joe Quesada infected this movie.

downloaded the movie, hated it. Bought the novel, it was much better. The multi character development is more possible confined in the 2-300 page novel based on the movie. and getting a grasp on what the chatacters are thinking makes it more understandable

This movie had all the potential to be great and then they had to stuff every possible thing into it and still used Kristin Dunst, the ugliest chick possible they could have picked to play Mary Jane. It was ass. Total ass. What a fucking disapointment.

And the real kicker is I liked the Sandman cheracter. Apart from the utterly rediculous connection to Peter Parker I thought the guy playing him was cool and I wanted to see an entire movie with just him and Spider Man duking it out. Maybe introduce the black costume and at the end give us a glimpse of the dark side of it's powers. That would have been a good movie but they were so concerened with ramming as much possible crap in there as possible that the potential for a great cheracter and a neat rivalry was totally pissed on so we could get Venom.. yes Venom. Venom was pretty cool but I gotta back Prot here. The whole fucking thing was so forced and so played that instead of seeing something like the first two movies which were totally unbelievable yet at the same time played out in a natural way we got to basically watch a video game on screen, ascending level by level with no cheracter development.

And the Emo shit.. for fucks sakes... can't these Goddamned Emo kids just show the backbone they do on their blogs and fucking kill themselves so we don't have to be subjected to the even smaller, whinier (if that's possible) offshoot of Goths.

After a good first movie and a great sequel, I knew the fuck up would be coming. When I heard Sandman was in it, I thought "Cool. Seems like a strange choice to base the whole movie on, but...cool." Then I heard Venom was in it, and that's when my bullshit meter went fully into the red. When the New Goblin was announced as well, the movie went completely off my radar. I eventually caught a matinee at the second-run theater ($2 Tuesdays, woohoo!), and I'm glad I waited. Too crowded by characters and too much pop culture got in the way of the story.

And when the fuck is the Lizard going to get some screentime? Jesus, they've been setting that character up for 3 movies now.

Why was Kiersten Dunst cast as Mary Jane in the first place? She is about as attractive as an old shoe at the side of the road. the comic book MJ is supposed be a frigging lingerie model.

The whole problem is, I think, that the producers forced Raimi in a direction he did not want to take... The original script did not include Venom (aaargh, McFarlane!) and was supposed to have the Vulture as the OTHER villain. So all the symbiote costume storyline was somehow forced in there... And the Vulture was supposed to be performed by none other than Ben Kingsley... Now, Ghandi as the Vulture? I would have paid a pretty penny to see that!

I really think they should've stuck with 2 villains for part 3 and then did Fantastic Four/Spiderman crossover films for the Venom story. Maybe a 3rd FF film that has a plot not centralized around the suit, but something with space and aliens and the symbiote. It ends with Peter meeting the FF, getting the black suit, and then the 4th Spidey movie would be about Peter shedding the suit and it ultimately becoming Venom.

Proto, I'm with you. One of the best scenes IMO was when peter "accidentally" backhands MJ at the jazz club. That says a lot about this movie. I think Raimi was a victim of the dreaded "studio interference" (although why he couldn't call the shots on this one, after two huge successes is still a mystery) I was most disappointed for the same reason I hated X3, they took a great 3-part story arc and completely ignored it to shoehorn in more characters. Venom should have been hinted at in the last 10-15 minutes and then.... Spidey 4: Enter the Lizard, S5: Venom. Now, if I ever get to see Deadpool killing sybiotic dinosaurs in Manhattan, while Spidey and the FF help out? I might forgive Marvel and Raimi for S3.
