    I really don't like the justification that if Raimi wasn't forced to do "Venom", SM3 would've been good. I think the movie had plenty of issues that were bad and I actually don't think Venom was that poorly handled (though Peter wearing the symbiote, that's entirely different).

I had a couple of issues with the way Venom was handled. There was no reason for Peter to go to the church bell tower since he didn't realize the symbiote was vulnerable to sonics. And I'm not sure how he realized that it was the bells that drove the symbiote away, since I knew at least one non-comic book reader that watched that scene and didn't realize that the sound drove the symbiote away.
Plus having Eddie actually be in the church at the time the symbiote left Peter instead of arriving days or weeks later like in the comics made things more coincidental, but that's a minor issue.

    The Sandman retcon, which wasn't even hinted at in previous movies, alone ruins whatever good the series had built up. It just tells the audience that nothing that happened in those other movies will ever matter because we can just make some random shit up.

That was bad. The entire point of the burglar killing Uncle Ben is that Uncle Ben would still be alive if Peter had acted. The whole "the gun went off accidentally after the burglar grabbed Sandman's arm" was completely confusing as to whether or not the gun would have gone off anyway if the burglar hadn't been there.
