The Raimi films were like a breath of fresh air for a Spidey fan. With few exceptions, Raimi had a great sense of how to capture iconic Spider-Man imagery.

Again, I am praying that I am proven wrong and that this new film will blow me away. But I don't think it will.

Subtle difference between that and spider-sense! If a bad guy showed up, and it wasn't just the movie, my plan was to hand him a hostess fruit pie.

Schmitty's Evil Twin.
I'm on the side that did not dislike the 2 movies. Though I did not love them. I remember that it was great that finally such a super hero movie about my favorite hero was a reality. X-Men was a hit and everyone was waiting for Spider-Man. However there were some things that bothered me, but excitment did not let me say them. The second time I watched the movie though, about a year or so after, I think that all the bad things came back to haunt me, and this time they brought help. I did not liked Maguire from the begining. He is one of the reasons I do not love the movies, and as the sequels progress he looks even more annoying. Plus (although not a plus at all), as much as I loved Batman begins, I hated Spider-Man's first half. The third time I watched the movie it was with my ex, who had not seen it. I was only looking when the whole origin part was gone. Batman Begins on the other hand, I loved the first half more than the second. Burton's Batman films also are great on starting with the fact that Batman exists for a while.
Spider-Man 2 was way better. Still Maguire was there but the cast was once again great (I think that everyone else from the cast of those two movies is great, maybe not Ben and May, though they were not horrible). The train scene was wierd though, and I will tell you a secret. I hate it when the so called "Parker luck" is showing in such obvious ways, in such overeacting subjects. The guy can't have a break, we get it, stop making him look like a protagonist from a stupid comedy sitcom.
I will not comment on 3.
Those two were good movies. Not exceptional, nor bad but good, and enjoyable the first time. Still they are good, comic book movies, wheras Dark Knight or V were good movies. However I dislike Cristian Bale as Batman (not Bruce Wayne), even though I think he is a good actor.
Acting is not what I dislike, don't see the hate for it
In SM3 someone forgot to write script for MJ, so she screams every other minute! Also the actors playing Venom and Sandman are uninteresting. Plus because - god forbit - they could not show Spider-Man being violent, so they had him act like a jerk.
Personaly I believe that 2 is the best and 3 crap. How couls you think that it is the weakest?
SM2 is unquestionably the best. It's firing on all cylinders, because not only do you have a really cool sympathetic villain in Doc Ock, but you've got Pete wrestling with whether he wants to be Spider-Man, and Harry rocketing toward a tragic confrontation with his best friend. The only way this movie suffers is through the lens of the third film, which didn't fulfill the promise of the second.

Sandman is interesting, he has layers
Venom was never interesting, I liked how they made him a jerk here, good reason for anger, and then Spidey does the most responsible thing ever, he kills the f***ing symbiote, and Eddie takes a dive with it cause he's a moron, Eddie was never anything less than a moron in comics
He wasn't violent in the cartoons, why should he be violent here?Plus because - god forbit - they could not show Spider-Man being violent, so they had him act like a jerk.
I said the biggest fail of SM3 problems, so yeah, it's superior to SM2, and I love all three moviesPersonaly I believe that 2 is the best and 3 crap. How couls you think that it is the weakest?
- Has a campy villain for live actions, he's kinda campy on paper but executed much much better than the movie, cool in cartoons, but still kinda campy, too campy in the movie. A guy with his only power having tentacles attached to his back should NEVER be able to lift as much weight as he did, and should faint after one attack from Spidey, but he received in total 11 punches and two kicks to the face since the clock tower fight until he drowns
- Mary Jane is such a useless b****, she gets too pissy at Peter for not being in her play once and acts like a s*** towards him "Oh, I don't know you, you said you'd come to my play once, but you didn't, it's torture, you effing jerk". What kind of a personality is that? She's way too fragile, and the worst drama queen until Pepper comes in IM2 when it comes to comic book movies. He goes to her play once, she's friendly until Peter invites her to dinner, then she's all pissy again, and he invited her to a cheese burger in the firwst movie knowing she was dating Harry, she declined with a reasonable excuse and a friendly smile, what's her excuse for being batty here? He didn't even flirt her
- Lots and lots and LOTS of inconsistencies everywhere, too many of them
- The burning building scene is ridiculous, it was fine until a fire man explained to me what happens to people in burning buildings. Please don't give me about Spider-Guy and his powers, make certain stuff believable movie makers, I mean f***
