Crimewave for me. I LOVE that underrated little gem!
Out of all of these, I find myself liking THE QUICK AND THE DEAD the best. I've never thought the SPIDERMAN series quite lived up to its potential, and I actually thought the second film wasn't as good as the first, other than Alfred Molina's performance as Doc Ock.
that was easy: a simple plan
Must say i don't like his non-horror movies...in all, i don't think he's that great a director, though i like the Evil Dead series. Plus i don't understand at all why he would make some of the movies he has. But i guess money talks.
I have Crimewave on VHS, Quick and the Dead and Spider-Man 1 and 2 on DVD, but I went with Spider-Man 2. May 2007 is when SM 3 comes out. I am, however, wanting Sam Raimi to make Evil Dead 4. Now is the time to make it, please.
I went with the Quick and the Dead, a guilty pleasure of mine, plus the only non-horror titles of his I've seen on that list aside from the Spiderman films
Quick and the Dead. A movie I love and is one of my favourite flicks, definitely the best Raimi flick. I actually like it better than Evil Dead. Wow!
It's true. I don't think he's made a good movie since A Simple Plan. I know a lot of people like the Spider-man movies, but I couldn't stand them at all.
I'll go with Crimewave
I'm with you on the Spider-Man films. I hated both, and certainly won't see another entry in the series until Raimi is no longer behind the camera, if such an entry is ever made. On the other hand, I love The Gift. It's up there with the better dramas of the last several years, and Keanu Reeves actually gives a good performance, haha.
I like Quick and the Dead, but
Gene Hackman's ridiculous demise
is a major flaw.
I did like the see through the whole effect though.
Also, come on. Keanu is god awful painful to watch in The Gift. It is just cruelly bad acting on his part. Actually, a lot of actors didn't really step up in that movie, with him just being the worst of the lot as usual. I think that's why I don't particularly care for that movie, most of the actors just didn't do anything for me so it is very hard to care about the drama at all. Also, I am not invested in seeing Katie Holmes naked.
I do expect Sam to be fired from the Spider-Man movies any day now. I mean, they have done so poorly and everyone apparently hates them.
I can't wait. It will finally free up his time to make Police Academy 8 and 9.
Y'know, I'm not too much for superhero movies but I really enjoyed Spider-Man. I haven't seen the second one yet though, so I'm afraid I can't vote for it here.
I feel that Reeves did a good job in The Gift, simple as that. Everyone's welcome to their opinions, but I'm not going to change mine. As far as Holmes is concerned, I've never liked her at all, so I could care less about her nude scene.
Raimi's obviously not going to be fired from the Spider-Man films, but they are a big cash cow for Sony, and they may want to make more films than Raimi is willing to do. Maybe not, but that's why I said if such an entry is ever made. As far as bad acting goes, I think the Spider-Man films have those bases covered with Dunst.
OH NO YOU DIDN'T INSULT DUNST! Oh wait, I don't care. Here's hoping Sam won't have her cluttering up the mix in his upcoming Police Academy 8 and 9.
Went with Spider-Man 2 yet I felt Spider-Man 1 and 2 should have been a combined vote...it's really just one movie.
I am an avid baseball fan, and Costner is the man, so I went with FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME. Raimi's directing was impressive too, in that he was able to inject his own style without taking away from the typically straightforward style that such a romantic narrative requires. I haven't yet seen A SIMPLE PLAN, but it has honestly not interested me all that much. As for the SPIDEY flicks, the second was a huge improvement over the first, but to me the series is only average at best. THE GIFT had such a lame twist, but it had a great gothic style, very strong cast and, well, Joey's Potters. I'll give Cujo some props too, I thought Keanu actually did quite a good job with his part, proving that he can play more than just pretty boy FBI agents, surfers or potheads. He wears the scruffy beard like nobody's business.
Outside of the EVIL DEAD films, I think Raimi has proven himself a good director for hire, but not one with a vision unique or artistic enough to eclipse the type of mainstream fare he is drawn too.
A Simple Plan. Spiderman 2 comes in a close second.
Voted for the first Spider-Man. I really enjoyed that film.
