-The Sandman portrayal
-Harry Osborn/Green Goblin 2
-Dark Spidy/forgiveness of Marko
-The NY love/hate Spider-man relationship
Did not like:
-Lame dialogue Dark Spider-man had, those scenes would have been so much more effective without the cliches.
-The absolute rape of the Venom character
-The last scene
This was a movie that was 2/3rds good and 1/3rd bad. When it was good, it was fantastic. All of the fights were absolutely amazing, and worth the price of admission. However Venom felt like he was thrown in at the last second, and hardly ever got any screen time. While I did not mind the change of Brock into twisted Peter, I did have a problem with the way he acted as Venom. Frankly, he wasn't needed, and while I understand why they put him in (with the uncertainty of 4th movie) the movie would have been far better with the symbiote and Brock not meeting until the final shot. When he held MJ like that and Peter helplessly watching, he would have killed her right there, not just made a snide remark. Also Venom referred to himself in the singular (me) instead of the plural (we) like he should. Finally, why in the world did you have to kill off Eddie at the end? Having the symbiote slink away and carting Eddie off to prison would have been just as satisfying and left open a return to the character at a later time if they wanted to, I really hate when Comic Book Movies kill off their villains left and right (which is what I have come to expect from this franchise.) Also why did you kill Harry, again there was no point to it. Finally, if this was truly the final movie why in the world did it have to end on a MJ/Parker hug which who knows what that means, when the other two ended with one last shot of Spider-man to give you that last wow. Instead it ended with a "huh" and disappointment with the abrupt end.
