Dancing - everything dancing-related. There's that cringeworthy scene in the Jazz club where Peter flashed his jacket and suddenly there's a supernatural breeze in the air. Also, has anyone noticed how he's suddenly a musician? Is the symbiote from the planet Jazzulon? What were they thinking?!

Not to mention, the scene where Harry is dancing with MJ feels like an advertisement for Chicken Tonight. Bunch of clowns all of them.

Everything listed was awful, but the dancing was like a desperate attempt at being awful. It's like Raimi was doubting if he had put enough annoying scenes, so he said 'okay, if I add random dancing here and there, I'm covered.'

Gwen, Emo and Venom. Both bad and extremely though I can forgive Rami for the Gwen part.

Changing one of the main parts of the Spider-Man mythos and history that had been in existence for over 40 years and used in every interpretation of the character over that time.......has got to be worse than the fact that he danced. I mean come on.....the story of Spider-Man/Peter Parker has always included how a petty crook that he didn't stop went on to kill Uncle Ben and made him the angst guilt ridden guy he is. The fact that he danced goofily while under the spell of the simbiot is nothing compared to that.

Yeah I voted for Sandman killing Uncle Ben, too. It was handled perfectly in SM-1. There was no need to change it to Sandman being the actual killer.

Sometimes those changes have worked. This is not the case.

But Spider-man's origin hasn't been in every incarnation. The 1977 TV pilot didn't use it. Not saying it's a good thing.

Sandman retcon was too many hoops to jump through. In retrospect, Captain Stacy warning Peter and May makes sense.

I'm still going with my theory that the black goo was from the planet Jazzulon.

Its wearer has the ability to instinctively play piano jazz and control the flow of air at pretty blondes shoehorned into a badly composed mess of cinema.

And it's contagious so Harry and MJ felt like kitchen-dancing as well.

Aunt May was a piano teacher, so you could assume she taught Peter how to play.

And that gust of air when he takes his jacket off is hilarious.

Terrible movie all.

It's funny. There are a few okay-to-good scenes (subjective of course but the bell tower and Sandman CGI come to mind) and if you take those out, the movie functions pretty well as a ridiculous comedy movie.

I'd watch it again someday just to laugh my ass off at it.

Okay now i'm having images of Aunt May teaching Peter how to create gusts of air with a quip jacket whip...

Aunt May: It's all in the hips! *thrusts forward and a gust of air blows Peter's glasses to the floor.

Probably the way MJ was written. I dig what Raimi was doing with the characters in the film, but in many scenes the writing doesn't do the characters justice. MJ loses out more often than not.

Most of the stuff on the poll doesn't bother me at all.

Who knows, SM3 might find redemption with a little push into the 'so bad it's good' category.

The tone was similarish throughout the trilogy but the dancing was wayyy off! I don't think they ever did anything as ridiculous as that!

Even if they did, Stan Lee himself knows not everything that works in comics will work in a movie.

In defence of SM3 the retcon of Uncle Ben's killer brought a meaning and purpose to Sandman. While it didn't have to be Uncle Ben (and shouldn't have been) it did give Peter an extra motivation to go after him.

It was an interesting way to parallel Peter and Harry too. They both found themselves hunting the man who inadvertently killed their father figures. It gives the ending more resonance, as while the circumstances were different, Peter learns to forgive Marko as Harry had forgiven him.

Harry had no choice but to forgive Peter because he'd be an idiot otherwise to still blame him after learning for sure that Norman killed himself.

But don't you understand?You're not supposed to be thinking about the deep subtexts and underlying themes!

Peter dances!MJ and Harry dances! Peter dances again!That's all the movie was about and should be remembered for!
