Sam Raimi's Green Goblin Make-Up
In 2001 I was a sophomore in college and Sam Raimi's Spider-Man ruled my summer. I saw it 11 times over the course of the summer and that sorta boggles my mind. How did that happen? Not sure. But I loved, loved, loved that movie at that point in my life. Now, I can barely watch those films. I guess they have their moments (well, part 3's got nothing good going for it), but I just can't muster up the energy anymore for that style of superhero film.
What I can tell you is that I hated Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin costume from the second I saw it. What was the thinking behind this mangafied nonsense? Well, if you watch the video below you'll see & hear what Sam Raimi might have done with a full make-up concept. It's not amazing, but it could have been given a little more love. It definitely would have looked better than what we got.
