It's been pretty easy for me to tell that he wasn't happy with it, but yeah, I don't recall him actually SAYING it before this interview.

Raimi seems to be the kind of guy who really, really cares about what the audience thinks of his movie. I think Spider-Man 3 was a case where he tried really hard to please everyone (the fans, the studio, and himself), and he ended up only really pleasing the studio (because, let's face it: SM3 made a ton of money). SM4 getting scrapped was a sign that Raimi was really self-conscious about making another Spider-Man movie that wasn't overall favorable among the fans.
