It's not as awful as I'd been told. There are moments of stupid, yes. But you know what this would've worked as? A full season of a Spidey TV show. There are some great moments, and some great themes, and I see what Raimi was going for... but he did not have the time to make it work, and what would've been a great dozen episodes is a movie that feels too long, too full, and packed with jarring transitions.
So I will try to keep it in my mind as the season it should've been, and forgive it for not working as a movie. *nod*
