How exactly were the Raimi films not grounded in the real world?
Because they took place in a super bright and happy and colorful version of NY, with lots of corny dialogue straight out of the 1960s comic books. With walking cartoon characters like J Jonah Jameson. And villains who rode around on gliders in cheesy green armor, or had long tentacles on their back.
I love the heck out of the first two movies, but they weren't exactly the grittiest or most realistic movies ever.
This doesn't compute for me. People seem to be having selective memory about the 'net for the Raimi films.
Uncle Ben was carjacked and killed.
Mary Jane was going to be mugged...at the least, in the rain at night.
Doc Ock wrecks the O.R. and kills the attendants working on him. He then makes a secret lab in a run down warehouse pier shown to us at night, the grity night.
Flint Marko is a robber on the run from the law
Not to mention broad daylight robberies in the first film montage.
How much more real can you get? I swear in 6 months the revolutionary rewriters about the 'net will be pushing the Raimi movies as flat out Camp Spoofs.
