Not nearly as bad as people say
Verified purchase
I don't care what anyone says, I still really enjoyed this film. Does it have flaws? Sure, but so do all superhero movies. As many have said, there's just too many villains in this one. It would have been best to either focus on Sandman, or Venom, not both (They could have left Goblin II in there). That being said, it still wraps up pretty nicely at the end. There are some great action scenes, and some truly hilarious moments when Peter is wearing the Venom suit. To me, the worst part about the movie is Mary Jane. The character is so poorly written and is basically a manipulative damsel in distress, which doesn't really make her very likable. Still it's a fun movie, and I really enjoyed Thomas Haden Church's portrayal of Sandman.

still spectacular

I'm a big fan of the final film in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, and why not? This one actually gets the Venom origin story right (or at least close enough to be satisfying) and packs as much punch as the first 2 films. The Blu-Ray reissue is nicely presented and looks / sounds awesome.

Now this is a story
Verified purchase
This is a classic story where the storytelling, character's arcs, and the development of the plot take precedence over the visual flashiness of graphics. This kind of storytelling is special, unique, and harkens to the simpler times of the previous century in contrast to the heavy reliance on CGI in this century. In this movie, even their superhero or supervillain qualities are just a part of who they are as the very real hardships they encounter truly make up who they are as humans. Yes, they fight, as many family and friends, or cousins, may fight over their differences, but in the end, it is but a philosophical dispute.

To be clear, I am not bashing modern movies, which are also entertaining, but perhaps development of characters, the search or exploration for meaning, or the relatable human nature behind the razzle and dazzle lend a hefty hand in making a movie great or memorable. Or perhaps the stylistic features - all of the small but impactful choices like the smooth use of jazz - that went into the scenes are adding up to make this enjoyable. Those seemingly small things elevate it beyond just another superhero flick; rather, it becomes beautiful, romantic, in those moments. Rather than focusing on neato graphics, which is forgettable over time as much better graphics are hailed every year, I was left with the sense of a completed story, the closing of an arc, the end of a book - a memorable love story.

My rating is unfair, but I'm trying to curve the grade...

Keep it real, folks. This movie sucks. This moment in film history should be taught in film school tho... it's when great films like "Spider-Man 2" became successful, so Studios (Sony) were rushing to go bigger and better! They forced the director to add an extra villain into the plot at the last minute. It never fit. Bad casting. This film BOMBS and then Sony immediately decides to reboot the franchise.... gross. (the A. Garfield movies should be erased from history, not that they're THAT bad, they kinda are, but more so b/c we didn't need them. It was a cash grab). And this movie started the descent into Sony cash grab madness. Now they're at it again. Leaving Marvel. Get ready for Spider-Man's franchise to become a mess again.

Great movie, however...

Liked the movie in some regard, but other parts are quite distasteful.

I like how Venom is a great portrayal of sin and satan. Venom sure is disgustingly ugly, just like the devil. Just look how Venom turned Spider-Man into a really bad apple. Yes, he gained this and that from Venom's power, just as living a sinful life does, but at what cost? He went from living as a virtuous man to living a life of vice, and his relationship with others came crashing down, especially with the one he deeply loved. It wasn't pretty. Even his own physical demeanor completely changed. How true this is for us in real life when we fall from grace and turn away from God.

The bell scene is a perfect image of sin and how it clings to us, as mentioned in Hebrews 12:1, and how we try to let go of our attachment to it. However, sin is so easily committed, and any sin we commit we become a slave to. Letting go of our attachment to sin is equivalent to how difficult it was for Peter Parker to detach from the Venom suit. Oh, how it clung to him so incredibly strong. With God's help we can break free of any bondage, however.

The parts that are distasteful include how much immodesty and the objectification of women there is in the movie. Way too many models cast for this movie were either wearing skin-tight or prostitute-like clothing, revealing way too much skin. Is this necessary for a movie to be good? Of course not, but sex sells. It's a true shame.

The filth of satans occult is inundated all throughout Hollywood, so of course there is going to be this kind of trash in movies.

FAIRLY MEDIOCRE
Verified purchase
About the only things I liked in this film were the decision to give Spidey organic web-shooters rather than mechanical, the music, and (possibly) the ending. The rather sad fact is that, in order to enjoy this film, you must be, not a Spider-Man fan, but a Sam Raimi fan, since this is much more a Raimi film than a Spider-Man film. It's way too corny, too over-the-top silly in too many places, and some of the more "tearful" scenes felt extremely forced, rather like a typical phoney Spielberg moment, where emotion is not cultivated naturally but yanked out of you with a blunt hook.

Over all, the entire thing ended up being just too mediocre. Not to my taste at all. Preferable are the films: Into the Spiderverse (a genuine masterpiece), the first Amazing Spider-Man and Tom Hardy's Venom. If you're going to spend money on any Spider-Man films, focus on these three. They are all winners and way better than this Raimi version.

The Ultimate Spider-Man Story
Verified purchase
(Spoiler Warning)

I know that this movie gets a bad rap, and - to be fair - it has some cringe worthy (but endearing) scenes. However, I love this movie and I think it really is the ultimate Spider-Man movie.

Starting off, everything seems like it’s going pretty good for our boy Peter. He and MJ are going strong, Harry has forgotten that/why he hates Peter, and Spider-Man is a local celebrity, openly praised.

But that all turns sour real quick. This movie sees Peter’s romantic and friendship relationships fall apart, he finds out that Uncle Ben’s true killer is still at large, and then - to complicate matters - he becomes attached to a parasitic symbiote. Peter (and Spider-Man) have to over come all of this, and it makes for a great movie.

Not to mention Sandman is probably the best villain and any superhero movie. I say that because he’s relatable. I’d probably do the same things he does in his situation, and you probably would too. Heath Ledgers joker (for comparison) is likewise absolutely amazing but also very foreign. I would never do what he does, and although I find him interesting, I certainly don’t sympathize with him. Thanos (whome I’ve likewise heard been called the best villain) is the most narcissistic, nihilistic villain ever. He’s willing to wipe out half of all life in the universe, because it’s what HE thinks is best, to hell with anyone else. Nah. Screw that guy. Sandman is #1 in my book.

Great ending to the Sami Rami-Toby Maguire Spider Man series
Verified purchase
Spider Man 3 was the end of the Sam Rami-Toby Maguire phase of the Spider-Man series. The movie tried to come to a conclusion about the Peter Parker (Maguire) – MJ (Kirsten Dunst) – Harry Osborn (James Franco) trio. At the start Parker wants to marry MJ while Osborn wanted revenge for the death of his father. Could they come back together as friends or would Osborn or Parker have to die? The problem is that Venom a symbiote from outer space and the Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) get involved.

The start of the movie is great but when Venom takes over Parker it takes a bad turn. There’s a ridiculous scene where Parker is strutting down the street, snapping his fingers and looking at women. He also starts pushing down the front of his hair. This is supposed to be the bad Parker because of the symbiote. It has not aged well and doesn’t work as either serious or satire.

If you drop that part the rest of the movie is very well done. You get the Sandman as an extra foe which was a nice addition. Venom eventually jumps to another character which is a blessing. The effects for Venom and the Sandman are also top notch.
