Happy Advance Birthday to who portrayed Harry Osborn aka New Goblin in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy
Sam Raimi says the first time he screened a film on the big screen, in college, a kid in the audience screamed out “This *** ”
Sam Raimi, who took part in ConemaCon's filmmakers forum, credited Ang Lee with raising the bar again for auds with LIFE OF PI.
Sorry but, the Amazing Spiderman is superior to all 3 of Sam Raimi films put together! I think it's that good!
I don't get why Sam Raimi has bothered making that prequel to The Wizard Of Oz, when Phyllida Lloyd's already made The Iron Lady.
Watch "Within the Woods," the 30-minute proof-of-concept short Sam Raimi used to raise money for "The Evil Dead."

Sam Mendes and Adam Shankman were reported to be top candidates for this film before Sam Raimi was hired.
I'm pretty the Hardcore Pawn/Evil Dead joint advertising campaign on TruTV is exactly what Sam Raimi had in mind when he started 30 yrs ago.
Bruce Campbell told me another Sam Raimi-directed "Evil Dead" with Ash will depend on success of the "reimagining" he and Raimi produced
And the fact that Sam Raimi is doing it again is the best thing ever.
Sam Raimi & Wes Craven are one of the most recognized horror/gore filmmakers but Dario Argento is the master
Another problem with the movie is Marc Webb is doing a remake on a Sam Raimi film, these guys aren't even in the same league
Watched Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man (2012). Can't believe Hollywood is so they just remade Sam Raimi's Spider-Man (2002).
The papacy of Shea's brain is innumerable high priests strong. Everyone from Sam Raimi to James Ellroy and Thomas Pynchon to Rakim & Nas.
[BD Review] ‘Evil Dead’ Is A Thrillingly Gory Blast Avatar of EvanDickson Posted by EvanDickson on March 09, 2013 @ 2:09am Related Tags: Bruce Campbell, Diablo Cody, Elizabeth Blackmore, Event Film, Fede Alvarez, Federico Alvarez, Jane Levy, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci, Remake, Rodo Sayagues, Sam Raimi, Shiloh Fernandez, The Evil Dead Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead is most certainly a remake done right. It takes elements from one of horror’s favorite franchises and reinterprets them in the most extreme manner possible for a studio film. It’s very much an attempt to recreate the intended effect of the original for 2013 audiences and, in that regard, it’s almost entirely successful. Built from the ground up like some perverse mainstream blockbuster, it might very well be the first “event film” aimed squarely at the heart of those who’ve been craving blood for all these years. After the rapturous reception at tonight’s premiere, I was a little surprised to see some reactions on my way home ...
My grade for Oz The Great and Powerful is an A-, director Sam Raimi did a incredible job making this film. His eye for visual effects is astounding andmade the film a true work of art, Danny Elfman did an awesome job with the music score for the film. The cast was near perfect with delightful performances by James Franco, Zach Braff, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis. Love love this film. I choosed a lower grade because there were slow spots and only a few surprises.

It’s a very good time to be an Evil Dead fan. Not only is the upcoming remake from director Fede Alvarez a gory, disgusting blast, but just last week Sam Raimi told an audience in London that he and his brother Ivan will be working on a script for Evil Dead 4 this summer.
"But just last week, Sam Raimi revealed that he and his brother Ted are working on a screenplay for an Evil Dead 4, which would presumably follow the further adventures of Bruce Campbell's Ash Williams."
A GRAND ILLUSION WITH SOME CHANGES: Review of "Oz the Great and Powerful" By: Ron Baxley, Jr. “Oz the Great and Powerful” never claims to be strictly based upon the L. Frank Baum books, yet Sam Raimi, the director, like O.Z. Diggs himself creates a grand illusion, a kind of CGI facade of the original books but with modern twists that appeal to a modern audience with choices of actors which also appeal to the younger set. At first, I thought James Franco as O.Z. Diggs was chosen just for sex appeal to the modern audience and thought he would act in the part in that kind of California surfer dialect that Keanu Reeves and he sometimes have in their roles. Needless to say, I think he added a kind of showman’s bravado to the part, a hint of romance, and a dialect that sounded more antiquated than I expected. I was pleasantly surprised. I also liked Mila Kunis as Theodora, one of the witches, and admired her range of emotions and moods. She goes from rage to placid and almost docile moods quite well ...

Saw Oz the Great and Powerful. I would recommend seeing it in 3-D, which normally isn't worth it but this time it is. Although frankly the most spectacular 3-D was the new Star Trek trailer beforehand. That was Avatar good. Anyway, Oz looks stunning, but the story also takes a while to get going. The last third of the movie when you see how they tie it back (or forward, really, since this is a prequel) to the original classic is the best part. But this is another Sam Raimi film where the visuals are more powerful than the story (like Spider-Man 3). Amy and I also thought James Franco lacked the gravitas for the lead. They try and do with him from a redemption standpoint what was done with Chris Hemsworth in Thor, but Franco doesn't have that kind of alpha male stage presence in my opinion. So often you don't find yourself rooting for his redemption, but rather you find him so petulant you want to spank him instead.
Evil Dead - The Hollywood Reporter - AUSTIN — "Blood-drenched" barely begins to describe Fede Alvarez's remake of Evil Dead, a gore-for-broke affair that strips the flesh off Sam Raimi's cult-beloved comic-horror franchise and exposes the demons at its core. The presence of Raimi, original collaborator Rob Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell as producers should give the faithful permission to attend what would otherwise smell like a shameless exploitation of the 1981 film, but the high production values and nonstop action offered here should also please younger genre fans who've never bothered to rent it. OUR EDITOR RECOMMENDS True to the essence of its predecessor but reinventing some particulars (precedent is set by Raimi's Evil Dead II, which practically remade the story from scratch), this film retains the five-youths-in-a-cabin premise, but renames the characters and changes some relationships to ensure we don't expect a beat-by-beat remake. That's good news for Shiloh Fernandez, who has none of the hu ...
Morning all! Team Norton here singing along with Sounds of the 60s and enjoying the show! From 10, Graham’s guests include Hollywood director Sam Raimi chatting about his new film Oz The Great and Powerful, plus, the creators of South Park and Book of Mormon, Matt Stone and Trey Parker. As usual Graham and Maria McErlane will also be on hand to ‘help’ with another two Grill Graham dilemmas… Our first letter comes from Daniela in Finchley who says: “Dear Graham and Maria, Last year, I lent my best friend a ski jacket. She had it for about a fortnight. When she returned it to me, I thanked her, put it in my wardrobe and thought nothing of it. Last week, I got it out ahead of my trip to Austria next week, but to my horror I discovered it was soiled and torn. Because it’s been some time since she borrowed it, I feel awkward raising it with my friend, but it’s obviously her damage. This jacket cost a fortune, what should I say and do?” Do you have any advice for Daniela?

I just found out that I really want to go see the new Oz, The Great and Powerful movie. Not only because I've heard that it's a really good movie, and a really good Sam Raimi movie at that, but also it has an unintentional reference to old-school Final Fantasy.
Sam Raimi is just trying to be a good sport about Spider-Man.
Got to see two movies tonight, 'Oz the Great and Powerful' and 'Stoker'. Though the films cannot be more different, they had one major thing in common - they both disappointed me. Do not get me wrong. There are a lot of great stuff to take note of on each. Both had imaginative opening sequences - 'Oz' employing a stellar black-and-white paper puppet montage while 'Stoker' utilizing a creative freeze-frame intro with striking nature visuals. Both bolstered strong performances from its actors. Rachel Weisz slayed all her co-leads in 'Oz' with utmost ease. Whereas, all the actors involved in 'Stoker' - Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, and good heavens, even Jacki Weaver, tore the screen out with memorable turns. Both are directed by two adventurous and critically-acclaimed film helmers, Park Chan-wook and Sam Raimi. Yet, with all such talent behind the camera, and talent in the front, what else could go wrong? Here's a prime example of filmmakers going for style over substance, where a well-pace ...
Not all of you will get this. If you don't, then understand that you just are not geek enough and that there is nothing wrong with that. Many people are born non-geek and go on to live somewhat happy and more productive lives. I had a vision of a DC Universe film produced and directed by Joel Schumacher and Sam Raimi. Everyone had nipples, neon lights and their own musical numbers. I am perfectly alright with Nolan overseeing the DC movies for now. Let's see what happens.
So "Oz The Great and Powerful" has an estimate budget of $325 million dollars ($200 million for production and $125 million for marketing). I sense either a John Carter (March 9th) flop or an Alice In Wonderland (March 7th) success. Honestly, it looks like the *** child of Alice In Wonderland, but I will see it solely on the basis that it is Sam Raimi at the helm.

Wow, The Possession was a solid new horror. Sam Raimi can do no wrong. Hard to shake my calloused old soul at this point.
Quote of the wekek Sam Raimi on the Spiderman reboot. "I didn't see the Spider-Man reboot. I know Marc Webb is a great director, and I love Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, but as much as I love those people and Amy and Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad, I just don't want to go to my girlfriend's wedding, with all due respect. I guess that means I'm a bad loser? I just love her too much! I just have to wait. It would be hard to see her with someone else … with all those other men!"

Michael Jackson’s Son Books Acting Debut on ’90210′ Michael Jackson’s son Prince Michael will make his acting debut this March on the CW’s teen drama 90210, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Jackson will play a trauma victim named Cooper who connects with main character Silver (Jessica Stroup). This week, Jackson is filming the episode, which serves as the fifth season finale. 90210 has also featured Carly Rae Jepsen, Ne-Yo and Nelly Furtado, among others, this season. Prince Michael Jackson is moving quickly into the TV world. He was announced as a correspondent on Entertainment Tonight just last week and interviewed James Franco, Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi on their upcoming film Oz the Great and Powerful.
Sam Raimi is truly the Marc Forster of Martin Campbells. Or the Doug Liman, I've heard it both ways.
Right film fans, the movies worth catching over the next month or so would appear to be:- 1. 'Welcome To The Punch' - British crime film with terrific action scenes apparently. Drumchapel's very own James McAvoy and Mark Strong are both usually excellent in anything they do, and Ridley Scott is Exec Producer so this seems a safe bet. Hope it's like 'The Long Good Friday' or 'Mona Lisa' but that is extreme wishful thinking on my part. 2. 'Mama' - horror movie, great word of mouth and apparently genuinely creepy and really scary, which is really quite rare these days. I love malevolent and demonic children in a horror film, they are so much fun and Jessica Chastain is a class actress. 3. Stoker - being compared to classic Hitchcock (especially 'Shadow Of A Doubt') so high praise indeed. The reviews have been uniformly great and Kidman on form ('The Others') is pretty special. 4. The Great and Powerful Oz - Sam Raimi is a very talented boy and knows how to impress visually (Spiderman II, The Evil Dead ...

I can't believe Sam Raimi made a movie called The Quick and The Dead where "the dead" aren't undead. I'm very upset. Also the movie sucked.
Before I get into ANYTHING, I want to remind anyone who reads this that I have a near-encyclopedic knowledge of Marvel Comics. In fact, I know (quite literally) almost EVERYTHING (major storylines) from 1963 to 1996 - individual storylines and characters depends on the storyline and character. I also know the origins of at LEAST several dozen of Marvel’s characters - I’ll let anyone test me on that. That being said, I’d know Spider-Man’s origin if I was blindfolded, handcuffed, and hadn’t slept for a week. The writer(s) of this movie obviously don’t. I was against this movie from the word ‘go’. Sam Raimi had given us a perfectly enjoyable trilogy that was done really, really well. The ONLY thing I have a problem with in it is Venom, but I digress. It had been argued that this movie was trying to be “closer to the comic” in terms of origin. Here’s where I have the problem. Allow me to break it down... First, Richard Parker didn’t work for Oscor ...
All true. 😱 But I do have hope it could be good b/c Sam Raimi is directing; &Rachel Weisz &Mila Kunis usu. make gd movies.💚🌈

“Oz the Great and Powerful” On March 7, the highly anticipated “Oz the Great and Powerful” comes to theaters. Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man 3”) directs this adaptation of every child’s favorite fairytale. James Franco stars as magician Oz, while Rachel Weisz plays Evanora and Michelle Williams is the good witch Glinda. “Mama” Spanish director Andres Muschietti has turned his haunting short film “Mama” into an eponymous feature. “Mama” tells the story of Annabel (Jessica Chastain), a young woman who volunteers to raise her nieces after they are found in the woods, having been abandoned there five years previously. The terrifying film comes out on March 7. “Gambit” The Cohen Brothers, ostensibly in need of something light, penned this crime-caper, which comes out in theaters on March 7.

March Releases Week 1 March picks up the pace after a lacklustre February. There's so many that we're splitting it up to week-by-week releases. A lot of new releases throughout March and almost all grab my attention. Closer to the end of the month there are 2 big action movies from Bruce Willis which should be a good lead up to April's blockbusters. March 7 - Great Expectations March 7 - Oz: The Great And Powerful March 7 - Broken City Great Expectations is a film adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel of the same name. The trailer makes this movie very intriguing and makes me want to watch it. I've never read the book so the story will be entirely new to me. OZ: The Great And Powerful is a story of how Oscar became the great and powerful wizard in the land of Oz. From the trailers this looks like a good adventure movie and is directed by Sam Raimi who directed the Tobey Maguire Spider-man franchise. It stars James Franco (son of the green-goblin from Spider-Man 2002), and eye candy of Rachel Weisz, Mich ...

Chris Cooper prepares the pumpkin bombs as Norman Osborn in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" continues to look more and more like an actual "Spider-Man" movie with the announcement that Chris Cooper, who provided villainy to both "The Bourne Identity" and "The Muppets," will be playing the pivotal role of Norman Osborn, according to Heat Vision. Osborn is, of course, the man destined to become the Green Goblin, the supervillain who is arguably the Joker to Spidey's Batman. Traditionally, Osborn is something of a mentor to Peter Parker before losing his mind (or whatever) and dressing up like, uh, a goblin, flying around on his goblin-glider and throwing pumpkin bombs at the poor citizens of New York City below. The role was played by Willem Dafoe in Sam Raimi's original "Spider-Man" trilogy, serving as the main antagonist of the first "Spider-Man" (2002) and appearing in the two sequels as a ghostly mentor of madness to his son, Harry (James Franco). Dafoe had to endure wearing on ...
New Release Tuesdays: Proxies in Blue, Feds and Reds, Wheelers and Woolseys Starring Wheeler, Woolsey, Paul Newman, Jock Mahoney Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. & Special Guest Star Harrison Ford THE HUDSUCKER PROXY (1994) Blu-ray Disc® debut! This Coen Bros.’ oft’ overlooked gem is both a savage satire on America’s love affair with Horatio Alger-style tales of mailroom to boardroom bunkum and a sly tribute to the cinema of Sturges and Capra. With a superb cast headed by Tim Robbins, Paul Newman and Jennifer Jason Leigh, the film glows with a staccato script and a sense of style as intricate as Busby’s most Deco dreams. Robbins plays the naïf with an idea (“You know…for kids!”) that skips up the corporate ladder under the Machiavellian direction of board member Sidney J. Mussburger (Newman). Also features Bruce Campbell in front of the lens and Sam Raimi behind it (co-writer and second unit director).

Global Superstar Mariah Carey Records "Almost Home" for Disney's OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL!!! PRESS RELEASE: BURBANK, CALIF. (February 6, 2013)–Disney announced today that multiple GRAMMY® Award–winning superstar Mariah Carey has recorded the song, “Almost Home,” for “Oz The Great and Powerful,” the studio’s highly anticipated fantastical adventure, directed by Sam Raimi, releasing in theaters nationwide on March 8, 2013. “Almost Home” will be released as a single by Carey’s label, Island Def Jam, on February 19, 2013. Award-winning photographer/director David LaChapelle will direct Carey in the music video for “Almost Home.” The two long-time collaborators are reuniting in what LaChapelle describes as “a duet between Mariah and the movie.” LaChapelle photographed Carey previously for album covers, and directed her in the music video “Loverboy.” Disney, Carey and Island Def Jam plan to launch a promotional campaign to support the single, the video and the film. “‘Al .. ...

I feel like ranting more about the Evil Dead reboot, but what's the point? It's happening regardless, whether us fans of the original franchise like it or not. Sam Raimi needs a swift kick to the *** as far as I'm concerned.
Speaking of Lorne Greene, did you know that his daughter is married to Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Evil Dead, etc.)
I wonder how many realize that there is a virtual film studio's worth of resources available online at little or no cost to beginning and/or non-Hollywood, lo/no-budget, independent filmmakers? The first-time director at the helm of this April's remake of Evil Dead got the job based almost solely on the merit of a short film he made and uploaded to YouTube that got noticed by Sam Raimi... AFTER having done just about everything else, including entering contests and festivals, and from what I read, being just about ready to give up. Just in terms of numbers, ONE uploaded video gone viral on YouTube could arguably attract the same size and diversity of audience and attention as the average Hollywood motion picture with a million or more dollars and a month's worth of advertising behind it. THIS is what more of us should be doing - not wasting our money on every Tom, *** and Harry film festival and competition out there in the hopes that some executive will notice. About the only festivals worth enterin ...
THIS NEWS HAS ME IN TEARS. I AM A HUGE FAN OF HINDI MUSIC! VERY HAPPY! IN TEARS! WOW Mariah Carey to Croon in Hindi Posted by Jonny on Friday, 15-Feb-2013, 7:11AM EST Mumbai, Feb. 15 -- After R&B star Akon serenaded Kareena Kapoor by singing 'Chammak challo' in his distinctive American accent in RA.One (2011), now another American star Mariah Carey is all set to follow in his footsteps. A trade source reveals that Mariah has been roped in to sing parts of a Hindi song specially composed for the Hindi version of the upcoming fantasy-adventure film, Oz The Great And Powerful, which is directed by Sam Raimi. "Mariah is going to sing a verse of the Hindi song which is being composed for the dubbed version of the film," says the source. Fans of the singer will be disappointed though as unlike Akon, Mariah is not going to fly down to India, to record or further promote the film. "The makers are hurrying to record the song in Los Angeles around March 12," says the source. The makers are still mulling over the ri ...

I can't promise I will get them all in, but I will try my best! There are 25 of us doing the group interview and we have 15 minutes with each actor and actress. ~Jen
'Oz the Great and Powerful' has a big-name director in Sam Raimi, a wallet-busting $200 million budget, an A-list cast and eye-popping special effects.
For Love of the Game (1998)- Nothing screams crowd pleaser like Sam Raimi directing Kevin Costner in a love story about baseball, but in spite of this, audiences gave a lukewarm response to this blokey love story when it came out in 1998. Featuring a talented supporting cast including Kelly Preston, JohnC Reilly, JK Simmons and Bryan Cox, , there really isn't much not to like on the acting side, but at times the story simply veers too far into melodrama. The film opens with 40 year old pitcher, Billy Chaple, breaking up with long term on again, off again girlfriend Kate, who has accepted a new job in England. Moments after this Chapel is called into the manager's office and informed that his team, the Detroit Tigers, has been sold to a new owner and their first line of business is to trade Chapel to the San Francisco Giants. Chapel is the last remaining member of the Tigers 1983 Championship team and wants to be remembered as a one team player. As Kate's plane is delayed at the airport, Billy walks out to ...

I just finished watching A Simple Plan with Mia. It's Sam Raimi's best film, made back when Billy Bob Thornton was one of the best actors around. Great stuff.

Did anyone ever mention Sam Raimi's name for the Star Wars job? I'm glad he isn't doing it, but still he would have been perfect
Producer Sam Raimi delivers some PG-13 scares in this mildly effective horror film, The Possession.
All the production stills of the American Being Human make it look like if Sam Raimi got his hands on Star Wars. But maybe that's just me.
A classic that blends the slapstick styling of early Sam Raimi perfectly with the dark horror tone that carries on from the first film. A+!
Hey, prior to the mediocre Sam Raimi films, I loved my Spidey!!! I actually read this one recently

Last two TFCA winners for best actress are now duelling witches in Sam Raimi's OZ. Don't say we never did nothin' for you.
Just recited "It's Sam Raimi. It's Sam Raimi. It's Sam Raimi." in my head while watching that Oz trailer. Looks like a hackjob.
Watching Sam Raimi's "The Possession" and the whole beginning is about an awful divorce. Thanks UNIVERSE.
My husband is venturing down to California Adventure today with team Sam Raimi to oversee installment of OZ THE GREAT & POWERFUL 4-D ride!
Xena will always be my all-time favorite because I'm a Sam Raimi fan, your sexy accent and you look great in that outfit!
Just watched The Possession by Sam Raimi. Cannot in all good conscience recommend it.
I think Sam Raimi must have been especially drunk when he wrote this part of Spider-Man 3.
well as ppl say 'to each their own' I'd rather watch the sam raimi spiderman films than the new one, its too twilight for me!
Watched Spider-man 3 on 5. The best of the Sam Raimi trilogy for me. I prefer Tobey Maguire as Spider-man than Andrew Garfield.
I don't really know why I dislike the Sam Raimi Spider-man films! I'd have forgiven them, if only they had got Venom right in the 3rd film.
Sat here watching Spider-man 3, I'm reminded why Marc Webb's Spider-man is so much better than Sam Raimi's.
It's brilliant in the sense that it compounds everything that is wrong with Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. And Sam Raimi as a person.
Raimi's idea of 'cool' in Spiderman3 is dreadful, this film ***
I think this is my favourite scene from any movie ever. I love you Spiderman 3. And thank you Sam Raimi and Tobey "cries a lot" Maguire
As Jo just said..."It's turned into The Mask". Sam Raimi used up A LOT of his goodwill with this.
Dread is building leading up to the cringe-a-thon that is the musical diner scene in Spider-Man 3. Sam Raimi!?
So excited for release of Oz on March 8th! Great actors and directed by Sam Raimi. The land of Oz just got re-invented!
Sam Raimi must have been having some form of emo mid-life crisis when he made Spiderman 3. Woeful.
no, none at all! Sam Raimi single handedly ruined spiderman for me.. I'm so happy they rebooted it.
I loved 1 & 2. 3 made me want to hunt down Sam Raimi and have nasty nasty words.
did you hear Sam Raimi told Danny Elfman he must have been asleep when he composed the finished score
I wish they could digitally replace Tobey Maguire with Andrew Garfield in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films.
Why get such an idiosyncratic director as Sam Raimi and then castrate him?
Spider-Man 3 is on. Only ever seen this twice before. Cinema and once on DVD. Sam Raimi got this one so wrong. Shame.
The Evil Dead is an American horror film franchise created by Sam Raimi. The films revolve around the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, an ancient Sumerian text which wreaks havoc upon a group of cabin inhabitants in a wooded area in Tennessee. The protagonist, Ashley J. "Ash" Williams, played by Bruce Campbell, is the only character left alive by the end of the series. The original series includes The Evil Dead (1981), Evil Dead II (1987), and Army of Darkness (1992), all written and directed by Raimi. The franchise has since expanded into other formats such as video games and comic books. A musical opened in Toronto in 2003 containing material from all three films, and a remake of the first film is currently in development and due for release in 2013; despite being the first film of the franchise without Raimi as director, he is serving as co-writer and producer of the film, with Robert Tapert (who produced the whole trilogy) and Campbell acting as producer as well.
3/10 Sam Raimi, why did you produce this crap?
I enjoyed Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies, though the 3rd one was too jammed for a good story
Watched The Possession. Another Sam Raimi produced film. I would say Drag Me To *** is still better.
Producers Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert standing in front of the latest Evil Dead one-sheet.
So I sat through MTV's version of Spiderman from '03... It was the best stuff I'd seen since the Sam Raimi trilogy. Best one season ever.
just saw your comment about and how it reminds you of sam raimi... to us, that was a compliment. Thanks!
Can't get over how much better the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies are vs. the new one -- especially Spider-Man 2.
ALL of the Marvel Cinematic movies, The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, Inception, and movies.

Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, proud fathers of the greatest horror franchise, are helping to resurrect Evil Dead in theaters on April 12!
What does Sam Raimi's Harry Osborn think about Marc Webb's reboot of the Spider-Man franchise? Not much. Continue on to listen to why Franco wasn't gung *** about the film.
Darrell Hammond now on - one of 's best ever; shame he has more demons than a Sam Raimi film
i would watch some of the films on this list with my sisterEvil Dead This is the biggie of the year and yes, it’s a remake. Difference here is that a) it’s Sam Raimi approved and b) Bruce Campbell has been talking it up! After another glut of dreadful horror remakes (be honest – there hasn’t been a good one since The Hills Have Eyes) surely one has to be good… right? It’s a brave choice then to take on the seminal The Evil Dead, but early signs are good. The trailer looks decent enough and the claim on the poster is a bold one, ‘The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience’. No one in their right mind would make that claim if they weren’t confident about the end result! Carrie Another remake due this year is also treading on fairly hallowed ground, how does one follow Brian De Palma’s shocking original. Well the casting of the fantastic Chloe Grace Moretz in the titular role isn’t a bad start. The difficulty here will be differentiating it enough from the original to make it wor ...
We reached out to SONY to ask them if we can interview Bruce Campbell / Sam Raimi for the upcoming Evil Dead Remake. Hit LIKE if you think they should. If they do we will ask you to provide the questions. Lets make this viral!
Sam Raimi once went on trial at Leeds crown court regarding the imagery in The Evil Dead!
For a film that promotes itself as "The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience," Sony has been relentless in their promotional campaign to ensure that the message is delivered to the non-believers: Evil Dead, the remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 all-time classic horror film, by independent Uruguay...
Do you know that. - Alfred Hitchcock actually held an audition for the role of Norman Bates' "mother". - It was not revealed that Laurie Strode is Michael Myer's sister until Halloween part II. - Jason Voorhees didn't kill anyone on the first "Friday the 13th". - In Evil Dead II, the zombie-demon "Henrietta" is the brother of the director Sam Raimi. - It was David Fincher (Director) , who held the gun in the scene when John Doe pointed it to Brad Pitt's head in Se7en . - George Romero played a cameo as Lecter's jailer in "The Silence of the LAmbs". - There are 3 iconic horror icons based on serial killer Ed GEin: Norman Bates, Leatherface and Buffalo Bill. - Buffalo Bill has the elements of four notorious Serial Killers : Ted Bundy, Ed Gein and Gary Heidnik. - The Night of the Living Dead's (1968) "goodies" (i.e. entrails, meat, etc) devoured by the zombies were supplied by a butcher who was an investor in the film. - The mall music in "Dawn of the Dead" (1978) was written into the script, because the cre ...
Gotta say it. Cabin in the Woods is good. Its like Waxwork, Monster Squad, and every Sam Raimi, Clive Barker, and Eli Roth horror movie put together. My undying thirst for horror movies has been quenched for the day.
In the next few weeks I get to meet Sam Raimi, Josh Duhamel, The Cast of Disney's OZ, and some of the Legends of Disney's Peter Pan! I mean who doesn't love Sam Raimi & Josh Duhamel! What an amazing way to Start 2013! Stay Tuned!
FACE OFF…. My hat goes off to Nicolas Cage and John Travolta for their outstanding performance. John got right into his character as he always does and Nicolas amazed me, because i never really thought he was much of an actor but this movie proved to me he is. I was nearly crying at the beginning when John and his son get shot. I felt so sad. But has the movie went on and they swapped faces and John's character changed from being a depressed workaholic who barely had time for his family, to a sexual stuck up aggressive man. It made me realize John Travolta is a spectacular actor! But it is one one of those movie that you can't explain to other people, you have to watch is yourself and you have to watch it right from the beginning to understand it. So well done John, Nicolas and John Woo for creating a excellent action packed movie!! Incredible movie. Throughout the 80's John Woo along with others like Sam Raimi and Tery Gilliam was the cult fans favorite and known to them as the best action movie maker ...
Watching Quick and the Dead, thinking "Gene Hackman in a Sam Raimi movie. Yeah, that happened."
It's been so long since I last watched The Quick And The Dead, I love this film :) Never realised Sam Raimi directed though!
An amazing performance by Giovannia Ribisi in one of my favorite scenes from The Gift directed by Sam Raimi.
Bruce Campbell & Sam Raimi are producing it & hand picked the director. Also there is no CGI effects being used.
Man people are like "the Evil Dead remake kind of looks awful but with Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell giving it thumbs up I know it'll be good!" Yeah, Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell. Those paragons of film making.
Review The Evil Dead (1981) A barrage of melting make-up, and DIY-gore done right. The most famous of the "video nasties", The Evil Dead set the standard for next to every cabin-in-the-woods flick (Re. The Cabin In The Woods), and launched the careers of director Sam Raimi, and Bruce Campbell. Far darker and gorier than the more comedic continuations, and features the most... wrong tree-rape sequence to hit celluloid. But lets give that remake a chance. VERDICT: 4/5
Fede Alvarez. A champion for practical FX. The director of the Evil Dead remake spoke with io9 about the forthcoming redo of Sam Raimi's cult classic and he revealed that there will not be…
A NEW 'Evil Dead' film in April. I just saw a trailer for it. NOT GOOD! And why are people out of their minds and pumped up on drugs all the time? Our children in schools are given drugs WITHOUT their parents permission and parents ALLOW it and allow their kids to watch films like 'Evil Dead' and other movies like that? And we wonder why there are people out there that are sociopaths/psychopaths. REALLY? And we can't figure out why? Sure, we all can't make 'warm and fuzzy'-type movies all the time, and Hollywood has an industry to maintain, but, seriously, we allow this type of movie making to go on? The FIRST 'Evil Dead' (Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell) was sarcastic and humorous at times. This NEW 'version' of it is totally NOT worth the price of admission (and that's my opinion based on the trailer). KEEP AWAY FROM THE MOVIE THEATRE WHEN THIS COMES OUT! It's probably not going to be worth the price of the $8 box of popcorn.
No Bruce Campbell, and not directed by Sam Raimi. I'm worried it's gonna suck.
No CGI or computer effects in the Evil Dead reboot. Film is being produced by Sam Raimi & Bruce Campbell, it looks great so far.
Sam Raimi originally intended Bruce Campbell to be the star of Darkman...the production company didn't think he could handle the part and Sam chose Liam Neeson instead. While I like Liam Neeson...no one plays as well with Sam as Bruce does. The part was obviously written with another in mind. ;)
I think what sticks out the most in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films is Kirsten Dunst's nipples.

Howard Berger/Robert Kurtzman/Gregory Nicotero (KNB Effects) Notable Credits: Evil Dead II, A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child, Army of Darkness, In the Mouth of Madness, From Dusk Till Dawn, Scream 1-3 Given that they co-founded KNB Efx Group together very early on in their careers, it’s tough to separate out the achievements of Gregory Nicotero, Howard Bergman, and Robert Kurtzman as individual craftsmen. While Kurtzman has since (circa 2002) left the studio to start his own production company, KNB has without a doubt become the most prolific and in-demand effects house in the modern movie industry. Favorites of a whole host of top-shelf filmmakers, including Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Sam Raimi, Eli Roth, George Romero, Frank Darabont, and Alex Aja, over the years the founders and their technicians have managed to create a wide variety of spectacular effects – from the hordes of the walking dead in Army of Darkness, to Drew Barrymore’s exposed intestines in Scream, to all those ...
Information Page for the movie Boogeyman with Lucy Lawless. Produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert - Ghost House Pictures.
LAST DAY OF THE YEAR MOVIE LIST TIME! Im not even going to attempt to order any kind of definitive Top 10, so heres 15 films I enjoyed in quite a poor year imo. Theres some honourable mentions at the end for some films which just didnt make the cut. (yes this is super long and you'll probably think pretentious!) The Avengers - Probably my favourite film of the year, as a Marvel fanboy I still cant quite believe it even happened, never mind it being so good. That last huge battle is just amazing, in terms of both action and character moments. The Amazing Spider-Man - Yeah it would have to pretty terrible for me not to put a Spider-man movie here but I really thought they got a lot right here. Both leads are great and the tone is vastly improved over the Sam Raimi ones. Shame about the villain though, looking forward to a fresher story in the sequel! The Raid - A poor year for martial arts movies in general but this didnt dissapoint. A simple but effective setup is all you need as long as you deliver suffic ...
Preety sure Sam Raimi stole the "losing powers" plot in SPider-Man 2 from Kiki's Delivery service.
Wiki sez Coen Bros, Frances McDormand, Holly Hunter & Sam Raimi lived in the same house in Silverlake. SERIOUS Q: anybody know the address?!
2012 was a busy year for Fighting Owl Films, and we’re still going strong as we move into 2013. We accomplished a lot: C.U.P.I.D was completed and is currently making the festival rounds. The short film has received great reviews! Our screenplay for Jersey Devil Expeditions gained a producer rep and has been making the rounds at some studios. Along the way, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert really enjoyed the script and had some great feedback. That's certainly encouraging! We’re hoping the project will eventually come together. The Night Shift arrived on Amazon online streaming! We produced a pilot for Graveyard Cinema. We’re hoping when things calm down a bit, we’ll be able to produce more of these. It was a lot of fun to make, but a lot of work. Night of the Krampus went into production, thanks to our IndieGoGo supporters. Filming resumes in January 2013 and things are looking good! Thanks to everyone who helped out along the way and made these projects possible – actors, actresses, crew members , the ...
Music from Army of Darkness w/images from Sam Raimi's Evil Dead Trilogy.
Oke, Spider-Man nya Marc Webb much better than Sam Raimi's.
The legendary B-Class movie, Army of Darkness directed by Sam Raimi starring Bruce Campbell now on MGM
In short... Evil Dead is a series of three films staring Bruce Campbell made by Sam Raimi. They are horror cult classics. Must see.
Got issue 23 (1982) bought as a gift for me which features interviews with Sam Raimi and Tobe Hooper, with Evil Dead on the cover!
TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL (2010) Director: Eli Craig Writer: Eli Craig; Morgan Jurgenson Cast: Alan Tudyk, Tyler Labine, Katrina Bowden; Brandon McLaren Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine may be unknown performers to a majority of people – they’re far from household names – but to the right audience, the people who might be interested in something called “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil,” they RULE. The stars of “Firefly” and “Reaper” have been bubbling on the periphery of fame for many years and they prove why yet again with their best film project to date; a funny, clever horror/comedy hybrid of the kind that Sam Raimi used to make and that so many have tried to produce in recent years but have fallen remarkably flat. There’s nothing flat about this clever genre flick. For the right audience, it’s pretty great. It’s almost surprising that the redneck horror movie hasn’t been skewered before. You know the kind, movies like “Cabin Fever” that play off hillbilly horror fears of the deadly people ...
Last week the James Bond movie franchise celebrated its 50th anniversary in style when Skyfall surpassed James Cameron's Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all-time on home soil, and having returned to the top of both the UK and US box office charts at the expense of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, 007's 23rd screen adventure has now claimed another record with the film overtaking Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 to become Sony's biggest ever release.
I usually love Sandra Bernhard, but I'm just not buying her as The Amazing Spider-Man. kd lang was better in the Sam Raimi trilogy.
Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy is so much better than Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man.
Watched The Amazing Spiderman today and it was a great movie but I still like the Sam Raimi/ Tobey Macguire movie better. Although I like Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy better than I like Kirsten Dunst as MJ.
I was not really ready for a Spider-Man reboot as I thought the Sam Raimi ones were pretty good. I have been putting off The Amazing Spider-Man until tonight...Not only did I enjoy it, I liked it better than the 3 Raimi did and Andrew Garfield portrayed a great Peter Parker! On that note I am ready for the sequel! (of course Denis Leary rocked with his small roll too!)
Six degrees of Spiderman. Andrew Garfield to Sam Raimi. Andrew Garfield plays Peter in the newest movie. Embeth Davidtz plays his mother Mary. She plays Sheila in Army of Darkness. Sam Raimi directed both the previous three Spiderman movies and Army of Darkness.
Which director do you want to see fill the shoes of Sam Raimi, now he's dropped the 'World of Warcraft' movie adaptation? Any of these greats?
Watching Spider-Man 3 on FX and I realized two things Sam Raimi really lost his mojo the later he got in the series and watching Kirsten Dunst reminded me of a thought I had watching Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2, that it has been long enough to reboot Interview with the Vampire and Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles.
Here's further proof that The Amazing Spider-Man sequel is moving in the Osborn direction. It's been revealed that several actors are in the running to play Norman's son, Harry, replacing James Franco, who filled the role in Sam Raimi's trilogy.
Now that the Spider-Man franchise has been rebooted, and in many ways made a clean break from the Sam Raimi films, it seems the time is right to start bringing…

Good Universe and Sam Raimi are teaming to develop an adaptation of the postapocalyptic angel-themed young-adult book Angelfall. The company, Raimi and his producing partner Robert Tapert have picked up movie rights to the Susan Ee-penned tome as well as the series Penryn & the End of Days, in which Angelfall is the first book. Raimi will produce with Tapert (hercules and xena fame, and is married to lucy lawless...and produces Spartacus). -looks promising. although "legion" as angel v. angel was pretty good. -

New trailer for Disney's new film staring James Franco and Mila Kunis. Directed by Sam Raimi. In theaters March 8, 2013.
Oz the Great and Powerful – Trailer | A film by Sam Raimi | Starring Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams
The Great and Powerfull OZ TRAILER ! from Sam Raimi, with James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams & Rachel Weisz
Is James Franco the wizard that Oz has been looking for? That question will be answered in director Sam Raimi's upcoming "Wizard of Oz" prequel, "Oz the Great and Powerful."
Aside from Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz being in it, Sam Raimi's OZ is the same sterile Hollywood CGI guff they like spewing out. Ergo: meh!
Actually excited to see "Oz the Great and Powerful". Sam Raimi, Rachel Weisz and James Franco, a good team up.
I purposely avoided seeing The Amazing Spider-Man in theaters for two reasons. One, Sam Raimi's trilogy was good enough to continue rather than reboot less than a decade after the first installment. Two, the trailers were horrible and made the movie look like some sort of action-filled plotless non-sense. This is why you should never anticipate a film's effect before seeing it (though I am sure I will continue to do so). The Amazing Spider-Man was just that...Amazing! More emotional, more entertaining, more plot driven, and much better acted. Peter Parker was more like the comic book Peter Parker to me as was Spider-Man. Also the film deals with little CGI in comparison to its predecessor series. The film also follows a version of the comic backstory much better than the original followed the backstory it was following. And until I saw this movie I have always preferred the backstory that Raimi's film followed as far as comics go. Not being a Marvel fan, and being highly disapointed in the absolute ...
To go the shake things up route: The Wachowskis, Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson, Ang Lee, Darren Aronofsky, Christopher Nolan, or Ridley Scott.
Just so everybody knows.Sam Raimi is doing another Evil Dead. I am gonna be the nerd waiting 2 days in line just to get perfect seats at the first showing.man it *** being a nerd.
Return to Oz on March 8th 2013 with Sam Raimi's
Sam Raimi the film producer is where we heard it originally.
Stills from Sam Raimi's upcoming movie--I really hope it isn't awful!
The Amazing Spiderman is better than any of the 3 Sam Raimi directed.
of joins me for commentary on Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man"!
it's out in about four weeks, just before Christmas. Directed by Sam Raimi, meant to be quite dark
See the first pictures from Sam Raimi's 'Oz: The Great and Powerful,' which arrives in theaters in March.
The director's new 3-D film, due in March, stars James Franco as a Kansas huckster mistaken for a wizard.
Now that I've seen both Amazing Spider-Man and the Original, I honestly liked the original Sam Raimi films more. Don't get me wrong, it was a great flick, but The Amazing Spider-Man came off as much weaker to me (physically). That and I liked Tobey xD. I wish the Lizard had more of a snout. On the positive, its good that they showed Gwen Stacy more, and her actress was great (and cute lol).
I get more excited for The Great & Powerful each & every single day. Thanks Sam Raimi. MARCH 8.
I'm 10 minutes into AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and already I think it's 10x better than Sam Raimi's version.
Mark Webb's The Amazing Spider-man was so good, and he made it look so effortless... that I find myself wondering "how the *** did Sam Raimi do such a completely terrible job, given 3 different chances?"
“The Wizard of Oz” gets reimagined in these new images from Sam Raimi’s upcoming movie, “Oz: The Great And Po
The Amazing Spider-Man. Awesome movie. 9/10. I really liked the way the cast worked together in this one. Seemed much more natural than Sam Raimi's forced acting. Can't wait to see where this new story arch goes.
The more images I see for The Great and Powerful Oz the more I want to see it. I blame Sam Raimi..

"Shop smart shop S-mart" sam raimi you are a genius i hope the Evil Dead remake lives up to the classic
Former Spider Man director Sam Raimi (from the Evil Dead fame) is currently directing a Wizard of Oz film, which serves as a prequel. The film is titled "Oz: The Great and Powerful", which stars Mila Kunis, James Franco (of Spider Man and Apes fame) as the titular character Oz itself. The film is set to release, next year in 2013.
I watched Amazing Spiderman again just to make sure, but yeah I hate the new movie, and still prefer the Sam Raimi/Tobey Mcguire ones. It's still a bit of a letdown how they made the Lizard look. Most of the body looked fine, but the head really should have looked more crocodilian, much like the comic books do.
Finally got around to watching The Amazing Spider-Man... and it was AMAZING... (Pun intended)... Being the Sam Raimi loyalist, I refused to watch it in theatres but Marc Webb does a fine job with this flick. Thanks James Russell... you were right, my man! It's good... :0)
"The Amazing Spiderman" was, by leaps and bounds, a far better film than any of Sam Raimi's.
So hey. Just watched The Amazing Spider-Man. I actually dug it more than the Sam Raimi version. also it was directed by a man named Marc Webb. So... yeah.

Wonder how many people get the reference to the "Evil Dead II" in the "Black Ops II" commercial. Saw "the Grudge" last night, Sam Raimi still rules!
Evil Dead remake soon Remake of Evil Dead part one which was the scary one part two and three were funny seen previews for it this April it will be out previews look awesome and its Sam Raimi and Bruce So it be great Kevin get ready go with me
So, watched the amazing Spider-Man last night and I gotta say, Sam Raimi's was much better. Maybe the the new one had great visuals but that movie was clearly sold on the lizard. He looked awesome, almost like a ninja title though. That being said, if they do end up remaking those movies that's how the turtles should look. It be sweet!
Sam Raimi's Spider-Man (Eric Larsen's art) and Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-man (Mark Bagley's art). There's a big difference with their take on our favorite web crawler, but both still and can exist in the Marvel Universe.
I like the new Spiderman Movie. It has a lot of great fight scenes. The villain is good, and the special effects are great, but it doesn't have the the great acting that was in the Sam Raimi/Toby Maguire films. It doesn't have the solid plot. Scenes are sketchy, and not continuous from one to the next. Then you have Spiderman texting on his phone. This is a mistake (Spiderman texting on a phone). Also, my chief complaint is that this version is full of soap opera. It is a love story between Gwen and Peter. A good portion of the film is dedicated to this. Then you have the overdone parts when he is on the bridge: "Just put this mask on, kid." Seriously, why are we wasting film time to convince a kid to put on a mask so that he can crawl out of a car?
u have no idead how happy i am about this B)
Ah sam raimi, you always now how to treat a fella.
watched the new spider man movie and in the words of my lovely girlfriend becca, "this movie ruined spider man for me." It was pretty bad, I'll just stick with the sam raimi one.
I enjoyed the Toby Meguire Spiderman trilogy... Sam Raimi has been a deity since I first watched Evil Dead II in high school... But the just recently dvd'd The Amazing Spideman is what all comic book fans wanted from the get go... Not what we settled for!
The new Spider-Man was good movie if you like generic superhero movies with overly dark undertones. Liked the story line, but it wasn't very "Peter Parker", wasn't very "Spider-Man", and definitely wasn't very "Marvel". I prefer Sam Raimi's, but not a bad film.
Had a really good time at the wine tasting tonight and then McGuiggans! Watching The Amazing Spider-Man. I'm sure it'll be good but it isn't a Sam Raimi version so it can only be pretty good.
Watched The Amazing Spider-Man again. It was better but still not as good as the Sam Raimi ones to me.
Somehow just saw The Amazing Spider-Man for free on you tube. Pretty ok, in a different way. I still think the Sam Raimi version was better, but to each it's own. Not opposed to a second one, but Toby Maguire is still a better Peter Parker than Andrew Garfield. My humble opinion.
Dino De Laurentiis: "Sam.Sam...you done with that Evil Dead 2 picher yet?" Sam Raimi: "No, we've been waiting on the financing from Embassy for 5 months." Dino: "What!?!? You come office, I give you money to make picher." Sam: "Wow, you bet I'll be there!"
Amazing Spider-Man is as equally entertaining as Sam Raimi's Spider-Man.
The Amazing Spider-Man pales in comparison to the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire version.
Just watched The Amazing Spider-Man Demand. I gotta say, it's WAY better than the Sam Raimi movies. I personally liked this one better. :D
Just watched The Amazing Spiderman...1st of all it was a long movie, and at first like for the first hour and a half, i couldnt help to compare it to the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maquire outing in 2002, but by the 2nd half I really enjoyed and it pretty much became its own movie. Whether I wld say it was better than the 2002 film is doubtful, but i feel it was equally AS good. Check it out. oh and if and when you watch it...keep it on till after the mid credits for a stinger for a sequel.
I saw The Amazing Spider-Man and was very impressed it is wrong to call it a rehash. It is different than Sam Raimi's trilogy and I thought it was better then all 3 of them.
James Bond with a mask Jul 19th 2012, 10:28 by N.B. WELL before the release of “The Dark Knight Rises”, there were rumours that Warner Bros was planning to continue the Batman franchise without Christopher Nolan or Christian Bale—just as Sony brought back Spider-Man so lucratively this summer without Sam Raimi or Tobey Maguire. In some corners of the internet, the rumours were greeted with horror: Mr Nolan’s trilogy is rated so highly that many Bat-fans think it would be sacrilegious to let anyone else put the Caped Crusader on the big screen. But Nolan’s films, as ambitious and intelligent as they may be, aren’t definitive. There’s one element of the Batman mythos that they haven’t cracked, just as Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher lost sight of it during the previous run of Bat-movies. They haven’t captured the character of Batman himself. In all seven of these films, the titular superhero has been eclipsed by the colourful villains he’s been up against. Weighed down by his clunky plast ...
Just watched The Amazing Spider Man. Very fitting title. Was very surprised how well done this movie was. Here I thought Sam Raimi did it best. Now I know better.
So, we watched The Amazing Spiderman tonight. It was... okay. It was by NO means the first two films in Sam Raimi's trilogy (which were truly fantastic), but it wasn't bad. Andrew Garfield was incredibly entertaining, and played Peter Parker as something of a bad boy/crazed *** combination. He spends most of his crime-fighting scenes rampaging around New York trying to find the jerkoff who killed Uncle Ben, and never really has a moment where he goes, "Oh, I should be doing this for good, rather than to get revenge." It is also notable that, at the time of the film's viewing, I though Denis Leary was Willem Dafoe. I'm not QUITE sure how I did this.
I've been a huge Spiderman fan since before I can remember. I loved the Sam Raimi trilogy. I bought and just finished watching The Amazing Spiderman, and I am thoroughly impressed. I absolutely loved it, best Spiderman movie to date.
Finally saw The Amazing Spider-Man. Awesome! Literally better than Sam Raimi's versions!
Watched the Amazing Spiderman again...first review was a 10/10 this time I have to go with a 9.5 / 10 because of the cheesy backboard break and the football post, mostly the football post part. Other than that its superior in almost every possible way to the Sam Raimi trilogy, and that is saying a lot (minus number 3). I always hear people say he acts like a jerk or a smartass, obviously if you think that you never honestly liked spiderman because that was the root of his character in the comics and even some in the cartoon, I actually liked the fact they followed the comic almost 100% that made it even better, the story was a lot more well done, when Uncle Ben died it was actually really sad, and in the first it was like oh...that *** They actually showed how it affected him and him losing his parents, in the Sam Raimi trilogy the character was more upset over Norman Osbourne dying...I still like the Raimi trilogy, but I feel this trilogy is starting in a direction that will blow away the original tri ...
It's no Sam Raimi flick, but despite my doubts amazing was a pretty good spiderman adapt
They are making an Oz: The Great and Powerful movie!!! And Sam Raimi is directing it!? I hope i see zombies and possessed women in it too!
I was so pumped for the reboot The Amazing Spiderman that I stayed up, after my fire, till after midnight to reserve a bluray at the Redbox up the street. I had been excited by the casting of some of my favorite once and future actors, such as Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field, Martin Sheen and Denis Leary. The verdict, as I finish my screening, is all hat and no cattle. Or, to put it in clearer terms, all sketch and no exposition. Sam Raimi, particularly with Spiderman 2, made a film that developed characters and promoted a compelling storyline. This reboot is great acting weighed down by a lack of clear plot development and narrative; most disappointing.
In this video I unbox the TARGET exclusive blu-ray combo pack + bonus disc of "The Amazing Spider Man", and give my thoughts on why I chose this specific edition out of the many available!
Dear Sony Pictures F*** U for firing Sam Raimi and also the new one is eh
Most of what we've seen from Sam Raimi's upcomingOz the Great and Powerfulhas been framed around the lens of the film's leading man James Franco. But the latest poster is all about the crazy world around him—including a terrifying first look at the new, evil flying monkeys.
Looks good, wonder how Disney will interpret this? Always love the way Disney handles colors.
Ok so I just finished watching the amazing spider-man and all I have to say is, F*** YOU SAM RAIMI. That is how you truly make a spider-man movie. Way better!
Watching the "new" Spider-Man. For the second time. And let me tell you, this "reboot" is like being in a band and making up some really good tunes, only to leave that band and someone else plays the same songs!! Sam Raimi forever!!
Movie News Oz comes to life in the trailer for Sam Raimi\'s Oz: The Great and Powerful!
Sam Raimi. Avid fan of the Three Stooges and Alfred Hitchcock, this zany American auteur is one of the most unique film voices of our generation. Raimi
Woo Hoo! Finally got around to watching "Drag me to *** . Sam Raimi knows how to make good old fashioned horror movies. Forget your "Barry Norman Inactivities", this is how horror movies should be made

They're really raising the bar here, fill the shoes of Judy Garland, Humphrey Bogart, and Ingrid Bergman? "Here's looking at you, kid."
