Here is what breaks my heart about this film: Thomas Haden Church kills it as the Sandman. But every other part was overblown and overdone. I could accept the Harry/insane Goblin bit. But why oh why didn't they wait on Venom? He felt like an afterthought. And Spider-Man felt completely dislikable in a whiny and annoying way in this one. Overall, probably not as bad as its rep, but easily the weakest of the 3 Raimi films.

If anyone needed any further proof of D.W. Griffith's ideas about non-whites, here it is. I certainly don't think that is a spoiler since you can see the poster for yourself.

One of my guilty pleasures. It's ridiculous and as cheesy as the terrible Smashmouth song that ends it, but I somehow can't help but be endeared to it. Maybe it was the 80 million times it played on television.

Is the film technically innovative? Yes. But it's hard for me to watch people heap praise on the film and also try to excuse its content when the film itself led to a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and open racial discrimination that lasted until the 1970s. In the South, it was like lighting a powder keg. And in case there are any questions, Griffith was racist. Sorry to break it to you. So was President Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson helped legitimize the film's version of history by endorsing it. President Wilson himself was good friends with Thomas Dixon, the author of the novel. It was a product of the times, but that doesn't make it ok.

An extremely beautiful piece of art, though I am not sure how I feel about it as a film. It feels as if it is missing some parts. I have only seen the Redux version so that may affect my judgment.

Along with Trading Places, 48 Hrs and Beverly Hills Cop, this film represents when Eddie Murphy was on the top of his game. After that group of films it would begin to go downhill for Mr. Murphy.

A very dated movie. What is important to remember is why this movie was so highly lauded. It was because sound was new and everyone was jumping on the bandwagon. In hindsight many of the early sound films weren't very good because they threw away plot in favor of music. It's kind of how 3-D movies often are. They throw all their effects at the wall in 3-D but forget to worry about their plot.

I thought it was enjoyable in a bad 80s movie way. It has the feel of a night time soap like Dynasty. The acting is over the top and cheesy. You can easily see why it was wholeheartedly rejected when it came out.

It's funny, with this movie the critics mostly liked it but fans absolutely seemed to loathe it. Non-fans seem indifferent. I personally love Superman and Superman II. I thought this was an ok film. I certainly didn't hate it like most. I felt there was something missing. I also couldn't shake the feeling that Routh was doing his best Christopher Reeve impression instead of making the character his own.

Hope everyone realizes this is the amazing animated HBO series and not the crappy live action movie version

The movie I point to when people say Nicolas Cage can't act. Just because he chooses not to doesn't mean he can't. There was a time when he took very good roles.

I look at all the thumbs down and wonder if it's mostly for the poor CGI, because the movie was quite good. I think people wanted more of an action movie. As a Hulk comics fan I thought this captured Hulk perfectly. It is a brooding, lonely and sad comic. I guess I am in the minority but I far prefer Ang Lee's over the Incredible Hulk with Ed Norton.

So dumb but also quite funny in parts. I love when Will Ferrell jumps out of the plane. The quote on the way down is just priceless.

I loved the Ghost Rider comics but this movie is extremely disappointing. I laughed a lot because it has a bad b-movie quality. Nic CAge really mugs a lot here when his skull isn't badly CGI'd on fire.

The theatrical cut is a terrible movie. The director's cut is much better, though still quite flawed. I actually enjoyed the director's cut.

I am not sure about the hate for this movie but it seems to stem from both Kristen Stewart backlash and confusion about the movie. I hear it called a Jumanji clone but it is in fact another book in the series by the same author. It is, in a sense, a sequel to Jumanji. I personally like it a lot better than Jumanji. It's darker and a bit moodier. I really like Dax Shepard in this movie and you can see glimpses of the acting chops he shows in Parenthood. Hard to believe the guy started off doing pranks on Punk'd.
