Beyond that I would have liked a fourth Raimi/McGuire film that could have brought the franchise back to what it had been with the first two films.
I loved the first two Raimi films, but by the end I thought his zany, campy style was starting to feel a bit tired and stale (even without the third movie's story problems).

I really longed for some deeper characters and a more realistic approach, and thankfully the new movie seems to be trying for that.

And from what I can see, the critics who actually LIKE the idea of a new approach (and aren't still attached to the Raimi style) seem to be liking the movie a lot more.
