Apparently not. He wasn't a very interesting villain, and some of his visuals, like the giant Sandman stuff was lame, IMO. Plus I hated his connection to Uncle Ben's death.

This one definitely goes to Sandman. He brought so much depth and emotion to the last picture. His daughter dying of...something really put the icing on the cake. Plus the grains of sand composing his body clearly represented the different pieces to his puzzle.

Still gives me chills.

Hey someone finally voted for sand brain

I don't agree with your assessment though. The sick daughter was all too briefly seen for me to even care, and Church had so little dialogue that he was never able to give Sandman a proper personality. Most of the time he was a CGI monster or flying sand storm.

I won't even mention the contrived awfulness of the Uncle Ben plot.

Ock, without a doubt. I've never been a fan of the character but I was engrossed in SM2's version of him.

Actually I was being sarcastic. Sandman was pretty much my least favorite villain in the series for the reasons you mentioned. My real vote would go to Ock.

Doc Ock for me, although both Goblins are also right up there, I was really impressed by Franco's performance and arc in Spiderman 3, I thought he played the part great and he was a really strong character.

Venom is actually one of my fave Spidery villains but he was just so under-utilised I couldnt get into the character, shame.

Green Goblin/Norman Orsborn - got better with every film! And he was in all three, in some form or another!

LOL, you think his mirror cameos in Spider-Man 2 and 3 were better than his entire performance in the first movie?

Closest one to the comics would happen to be.....
Maybe I'll have to agree on Norman being the closest

I say Venom was...from look to character. Yeah, he wasn't 100% like the comic books, but he was damn near close.

The cameo appearances in the sequels were much more surprising to say the least.

That's not what I asked you. You said he got BETTER in the sequels. So are you saying you think those cameos are better than his prominent role in Spider-Man 1?

LOL! Ock got better. He gets to hang prominently on the office wall of Jonah Jameson, right beside his desk for all and sundry to see:






He's not confined to the crazy mind of Harry

Doc Ock all the way... I loved Dafoe, but something about the suit (and much of his dialogue) really ruined the Goblin for me.

I think his cameos in the sequels made him more 'prominent' to the overall trilogy. Of course I liked his performance in the first, with the mask and all, but when I said 'better' I meant in terms of fan-boy-love (essentially what this page is about right? Which villain I liked most?) not critical assessment. But even if I have to go for the latter, I'd pick Goblin over the others any day. Doc Ock was terrific, but Goblin was pure malice.

I'm sure there is a Spidey-related headline in there somewhere. Hell, if anything, it'd be Jameson's most prized piece. Oh and as for craziness - yeah, Goblin's all about inspiring madness. All you need, is a little push.

Doc Ock for me. Although, the 'privilege' speech of his is explained with the two keywords backward for some strange reason toward the end, when it was explained oppositely earlier in the movie, causing the attentive viewer to feel like Octavius was contradicting himself.

Even so, this interpretation of the character was great to me, very compelling and more enjoyable than I ever found him to be in the comics. Molina's edge on his personality turned the character into an icon for me, when before I felt he was just another quirky mad scientist. And good GOD, that fight between them!

I also loved Harry and thought Sandman was a great improvement over his previous incarnations (that I've seen personally). But yeah, Ock takes the cake still.

It's funny how you can see which villains Raimi loved (Ock) and elevated to a whole new level of coolness, while others that he didn't care for all that much got the shaft big time (Venom).

I felt this way too. The 'ghost' of the Green Goblin sort of haunted the films and caused things to escalate the way they did. He was like the heart of evil that was poisoning things, and even after death, he continued to hurt Peter..

I remember that! But hey, aren't gift and privilege the same things anyway? At least in one sense?
