Spider-Man 3

Some may say that Spider-Man 3 was where the franchise went wrong. Of course since Sony rebooted it with The Amazing Spider-Man, it really hasn’t gotten any better. So as fans call for Sony to make a deal or just give the rights back to Marvel, Sam Raimi is finally admitting that Spider-Man 3 was awful, and if he were to make another Spider-Man film, he wouldn’t make “that movie.” But it doesn’t stop there, Raimi also talks about his most recent hit Oz the Great and Powerful.

The director stopped by Chris Hardick’s Nerdist podcast, where he opened up about some of the best and worst movies in his directing career. Hit the jump for more.

Here’s his full comments on Spider-Man 3,

“It’s a movie that just didn’t work very well. I tried to make it work, but I didn’t really believe in all the characters, so that couldn’t be hidden from people who loved Spider-Man. If the director doesn’t love something, it’s wrong of them to make it when so many other people love it. I think [raising the stakes after Spider-Man 2] was the thinking going into it, and I think that’s what doomed us. I should’ve just stuck with the characters and the relationships and progressed them to the next step and not tried to top the bar” …

Raimi then said, “[But] directors don’t like to talk about their bad films.” Hardwick didn’t think Spider-Man 3 was that bad, but Raimi described it as “awful.” The director then said that he’d love to do it all over again if he were given the opportunity, but added “I wouldn’t’ make that movie.”

It’s quite refreshing to hear a director speak so candidly about their own directorial efforts they think are bad. It’s also a relief to hear that the problems he had with the film are pretty much in line with what many had complained about. Again, style over substance.

Oz the Great and Powerful seemed like a film that you’d think Raimi would be more interested in talking about, given the success at the box office. However, of that movie Raimi only said “I did the best I could.”
