    Seriously, where did that come from? How did he know for sure that Norman killed himself? Was he there? What is he, a CSI coroner who secretly moonlights as a butler? And if so, why didn't he tell Harry earlier? It would have saved him from going insane. It was such a contrived way to get him to help Peter, and to get to the fourth act. I didn't have a problem with Venom, I thought that he was fine. And the special effects were good too. I also hated that he just let the Sandman go at the end. I mean, he did kill his uncle (A needless retcon. Why didn't the cops tell them earlier?). I can understand Peter feeling sorry for him, but just letting him go? I don't buy that. There were a few other plot holes and contrivances, but those two really stuck out for me. Also, shouldn't MJ have told Peter that Harry threatened her, and what he was up to? I mean, she knew that he was Spider-Man. I liked the movie on the whole, but yeah, it definitely had a lot of problems.

I very much liked Spider-Man 3 myself, but yes, the butler was always an issue. It's pure deus ex machina, and even setting that aside it doesn't really work. The glider flew into Norman Osborn from a distance. How could anyone who wasn't there determine that the wound was self-inflicted?
