Foreword: I haven't seen the original in sometime, which prefer for watching edits and I also didn't review your changes ahead of watching, which I also prefer. I looked at the edit list back when I downloaded the edit, but I like to not know exactly what I'm walking into so I don't watch an edit for a few months or more after downloading them.

What I liked: It felt like a watchable movie. I was happy you took out the "He might still be alive" bit at the end with Venom. I liked what bit of goof and campiness you left in. No Spider-Man should ever be completely dark, because he just doesn't seem like that kind of character. Sandman seemed to make more sense to me as a character.

What I didn't: Video quality, but that was a small thing. I had the AVI. There was some re-ordering that was a little confusing for a bit, but I don't mind it terribly since I usually prefer a movie that requires thought, just a small note there..

Overall: A lot of reviews seemed to think Spider-Man 3 should have no cheese or campiness, I can't agree. I also can't agree with you saying that now this movie fits in with the first two, because it seems to only fit the first one. The second movie is too much of a train wreck to keep up with your edit. To me it used to be the 3rd was so bad it made the 2nd seem okay but no longer!
Really well done. I was very impressed that when the movie was over I found I had actually enjoyed Spider-Man 3!

Extra: This edit would benefit from a re-encode from the source material.

A/V Quality - 8 (6 really but since this is possibly a bootleg AVI I don’t want to punish editor)

ut I also like this alternate version, which successfully removes the campiness factor.

Thanks for the kind words. I can say any edit I have ever done has only been released from my collection in the original DVD or Blu-Ray quality. Any AVIs are made by well-intentioned fans who have ripped the disc to another format in the interest of making the material available.

Thank you all for still watching after all these years.
