Copypaste from another thread:
>For all the complaints about camp, for all the Garfielf/Holland fanboys, for all the racist-Raimi memes, and for all the legit criticisms, you know what? These are still probably THE most referenced, influential comic book movies outside of Superman '78 and the first Burton Batman. Even Nolan's films are mostly meme-fodder. But Rami's Spider-Man films? Everyone remembers every scene, you can tell someone has never seen the movie when they 'parody' it and don't reference something specific, because it's impossible to.
>Say what you will, but with all the complaints about modern cape movies lacking identity, Raimi made these films his in a way few directors ever would these days.
