Seems like quite a few don't like Raimi's Spider-Man. I thought Raimi's first Spider-Man was done quite well. 2 was brilliant. 3 was meh but I still enjoyed it more than ASM. Spider-Man released in 2002 was a game changer for comic book movies, it was a step up to something else moving away from what was done in Batman and Superman films. ASM is just another comic book movie.
I enjoyed ASM, but to me the Raimi movie (flawed though it is) came much closer to capturing the fun, lighthearted spirit of the character.

I'm fine with Spidey's world being a darker and gloomier place, but I don't really want Spidey himself to be that way.
