The Army

If I was stuck on a desert island with only one raimi film to entertain, there is no other film that's needed. Just AOD all the time.

The Gift

While Raimi has made a lot of good films, the Gift deserves so much more love than it's getting.

As much as i love the Evil Dead & Spider-man movies I had to pick The Gift because I just believe it's a very well made film. I watched it the other day on Netflix & I was glued to the screen as if I was watching it for the 1st time again. I actually like all of Raimi's movies really & the only one I have not seen is Drag Me To Hell.

Evil Dead 2 is just too groovy

my favorite film ever, it wins no competition. I want to take an opportunity to shout out some of his lesser knowns; A Simple Plan, The Gift, The Quick and the Dead and Darkman are all fantastic and sadly under seen. For all genre fans out there that haven't given those a look, do yourself a favor and watch them, you won't be disappointed! (although I'm most likely preaching to the choir here).

sorry guys

you just gotta accept that some people just arent horror fans. I've never seen a trailer for a horror movie that made me say "oh i wanna see that". And frankly, The Evil Dead movies were no exception. As a movie it has its flaws, but to many people those flaws are what make it great. To some people what is cheap effects and poor character development to other people is campy and innovative. I admit that as a horror film it does stand above most everything around it and is as enjoyable to watch

To some people what is cheap effects and poor character development to other people is campy and innovative. I admit that as a horror film it does stand above most everything around it and is as enjoyable to watch today as it was 30 years ago (or 6 years when i first saw it). Its a great movie that is worth watching. But some people just dont care for the gore. To me it was the bare essentials of a horror film. It didn't clutter itself with needless plot points or dumb characters. It knew what it was and straight to the point. Gory with moments of sinister humor. But on the other side of that is it doesnt accomplish anything either. It never conveys any sort of message or deeper meaning. There is no morality or intelligent story telling going on. It is just pure, mindless, fun. Thats why, while i respect the hell out of it, i dont enjoy it as much as Spiderman 2. That movie had great action, character development, humor and the benefit of a great director at the helm of complex cultural icon. It lighten what superhero movies were long before Ironman and still kept the story structure set up by X-men that helped usher in a revolution of comic book movies. All Evil Dead did was spawn a slew of copy cat films from every unknown director with a camera and $200 bucks. So many so that "Cabin in the Woods" is able to parody them all. Its hard to argue these 2 movies, but when it comes down to which you prefer, its a matter of what kind of person you are; action or horror?

Kind of strange seeing his filmography like that, I view him a certain way, but his body of work is a lot more varied than I remembered

Really?!?

Spider-Man 2 over Evil Dead II? Seriously? You kids are nuts.
Evil Dead is the greatest indie horror flick ever made (alongside Texas Chainsaw 1) and the sequel established Raimi's signature style. No contest for me.

Evil Dead 2

It had a good balance of both horror and comedy. Army of Darkness was my number 1 favorite Sam Raimi movie as a kid until I saw Evil Dead 2.

If you voted for a Spider-Man movie, then you aren't a true Raimi fan. The Evil Dead trilogy and Drag Me to Hell are his best movies hands down.

yes on DMTH! i don't get so called 'old school fans' disliking that film. it's such an obvious ode to the ED films, and just great on its own terms.

Sorry, as much as i love the Evil Dead trilogy, im just not a big a fan boy over them as other people. And even through i dont think Spider-man 1 holds up over time and Spider-man 3 was a disappointment. I had to go with Spider-man 2 as my favorite of his films.

It's a very tough choice between Spider-Man and Army of Darkness, two of my all-time favorites. I suppose I have to settle on AoD only because it's got way more Bruce. :-D

Why would you vote for Spider-Man 3?!?!?!

Ugh the fact that you even offer Spider-Man 3 as an option pisses me off. I realize it's the "cool thing" to hate on Spider-Man 3 and X-Men: The Last Stand but Spider-Man 3 is in a whole other league of awful, while Last Stand was just comparatively bad. Raimi, who I totally respect and admire for his work on Spider-Man 2 and the Evil Dead movies, should be ashamed and embarrassed that his name is connected to the hunk of shit that is Spider-Man 3. But, anyway, my vote goes to Evil Dead II.

Spider-man 2 got my vote. However, I did watch A Simple Plan on HBO for the first time this past week. A great little suspense film; I wouldn't mind more like this from Raimi in the future. Recommended if you haven't seen it.

Spider-Man 2

Easily Spider-Man 2. I know alot of people consider The Dark Knight as the greatest comic book movie of all time, which is fine. But in many ways I consider Spider-Man 2 to still be the greatest superhero film of all time. First time I saw it in theaters, I was blown away by the time the credits rolled.

I learned not to take the thumbs voting serious a long time ago. I don't get why people are making posts on who others have voted for, I mean a person can choose whichever movie they want. Hell I chose THE GIFT!
