Spider-Man 3

Some may say that Spider-Man 3 was where the franchise went wrong. Of course since Sony rebooted it with The Amazing Spider-Man, it really hasn’t gotten any better. So as fans call for Sony to make a deal or just give the rights back to Marvel, Sam Raimi is finally admitting that Spider-Man 3 was awful, and if he were to make another Spider-Man film, he wouldn’t make “that movie.” But it doesn’t stop there, Raimi also talks about his most recent hit Oz the Great and Powerful.

The director stopped by Chris Hardick’s Nerdist podcast, where he opened up about some of the best and worst movies in his directing career. Hit the jump for more.

Horror movies were becoming one-dimensional and sequel-crazy. By mid-1984, three Halloweens, and four Friday the 13ths had come out. Then along came Freddy Krueger.

Freddy was different from all his horror icon predecessors. Whereas Michael Myers and Jason were silent masked stalkers, Freddy had personality. A child killer murdered in an act of town-coordinated vigilante justice, he unfortunately becomes a dream demon and stalks the children of his killers while they sleep. His grotesquely burned face left nothing to the imagination, and his ability to work within the dream world made him limitless as a killer and gave the filmmakers the freedom to go crazy with off-the-wall kills.

Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive #1
Written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton
Art by Rachael Stott
Colors by Charlie Kirchoff
Letters by Tom B. Long
IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios
Release date: December 31, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Comics book publishers IDW Publishing and BOOM! Studios bring two fan-favorite franchises together for the first time in Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive, a 5-issue miniseries which sees the original Star Trek crew enter the world of the original Planet Of The Apes. While this crossover seems unlikely, this is Star Trek we’re talking about – Captain Kirk and crew manage to boldly go where no man has gone before and live to tell about it.

Star Trek/Planet Of The Apes #1 is mainly set-up for the collision of these two worlds in what largely feels like a typical Star Trek comic book story. Crew members in disguise beam to the surface for some quick reconnaissance, hasty retreat required; Spock ascertains just enough information from the data retrieved to make the daring Captain Kirk want to rush into uncharted territory to investigate; and there’s a whole Captain’s Log portion that gives you the background you need so that the action can begin.
