Spider-Man 3's biggest flaw is that it feels overstuffed, which is a thing that you might like it or not; this edit, while technically impeccable, shows this weakness greatly and even though some scenes are cool to see along the theatrical version, others (like the alternative scene where Harry looks at the photograph that in the Editor's cut was supposed to replace the butler scene) just bloat the runtime and pacing for nothing.

Overall, I'd recommend this edit to those who enjoyed Spider-Man 3 for what it is and want more from it..... If you're not this kind of person, I'd recommend another edit that tries to streamline the picture by removing the unnecessary material.

I enjoy the Hybrid Cut, It was a better then the original movie. The extra scenes were good. I liked you put dance scene after the harry fight. That made more sense, it made Peter look more evil. Adding more then 6 minutes made the picture better. I liked that you added the part when the Sandman made the castle for his son. Good job, good edit.

I want to make this clear upfront. This review is NOT a reflection on Bobson's work or skill. The goal with this edit wasn't necessarily to create a good movie, so much as it was to create the longest possible cut of Spider-Man 3 without any scenes removed; akin to restoring a workprint, if you will, rather than fine-tuning or perfecting that workprint. In solely reviewing it from that standpoint, Bobson's restoration is technically flawless (and if they're reading this, well done).

Now a review of the film itself. In short, it's still terrible. If I'm being honest, increasing the runtime actually creates a new problem; in that not only do I not care what's going on, because of how unlikeable and/or underdeveloped some of the characters are, the pacing is now so slow I kept checking my watch to see when it would end. If you're interest in this edit is that the restored material potentially fixes or improves the film, manage your expectations.

I'll re-iterate, this edit constitutes a technical experiment in restoring an original film's workprint. While Bobson succeeds in doing that with flying colors, alas it does not constitute a good film.

Like all of Bobson's other edits, perfect. I loved all the new scenes and didn't even notice any editing. I can't stand it when new versions of films also take out scenes, so this hybrid cut is perfect.

I loved that the Editor's cut added the sandcastle scene and re-ordered the emo section, but I hated that it cut precious Ditkovich and Aunt May scenes, this fixes that entirely.
Best of both worlds, nuff said!
