I still think Spider-Man 2 was a wasted opportunity. Doc Oc is the best villain, yes better than Venom, because he has an actual brain. But, we barely got to see any of that brain, his character development in the movie was severly lacking. He was almost wasted. They dropped the ball I felt.
They also beat you, and beat you, and beat you over the head with the love story... seriously, by the end of the movie, I wished Doc Oc has just taken Mary Jane and ripped her in 5 pieces.
It wasn't the cluster-
part 3 was... but honestly? it wasn't that great either.
