Header[edit]

In the family section it says he is the fourth of five children but then it goes on to say he has an older brother and an older sister, can someone fix this?

Can someone change the page's grammar to note that one does not "immigrate" from Russia. One "emigrates" FROM Russia: one "immigrates" TO the United States71.62.27.199 (talk) 00:31, 22 December 2007 (UTC)PMB The Spider-man film featured a scene between the twin towers, which was cut after the Sept. 11 attack. Useless trivia? I'm not sure if they're reshooting it elsewhere or if it was just filler to establish location and Spidey's web-slinging ability.


Apparently the scene never occured in the movie, it was only a device for the movie trailer. Raimi probably never even made the trailer, as I believe it was made before the movie script was even finalized. --alan d


Thanks. That's odd, though. Why would they do that, knowing that people would then expect the scene in the movie (um, because they know people would then expect the scene in the movie...right, right. Typical Hollywood.) --Koyaanis Qatsi


The same thing happened in the Leslie Nielsen movie that had a takeoff on the scene from "Ghost" -- where he and the actress were playing with a pottery wheel. There was never any intention of including that scene in the movie, but because it played so well in the previews, they added it to the movie script. --corvus13


On his bio, it refers to him as an alumnus of Michigan State. Considering he dropped out after three semesters and never completed, can you still call him an alumnus? Just curious.

Anti-Venom?[edit]

Quote from the Venom (comics) article; " Sam Raimi has supposedly gone on record as saying that while he is in directorial control of the Spider-Man film saga, Venom will never appear as a villain." Anyone know why?

It was because of what he refers as "Lack of Humanity" you can find more here Spider Man 3 However he obiously was convinced otherwise since Venom is in Spider-Man 3-User:Dark Dragon Flame December 18 2006

Political[edit]

I've added some info about Sam Raimi's supporting President George W. Bush

I've never seen political donations on any person's bio. Is this unprecedented?

Yeah, unless you are talking of a big time political helper, Sam Raimi din't really cooperated with a big quantity, I think it should be edited out-Dark Dragon Flame 16:41, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

I agree. Since he's not a major contributor, and that campaign contribution website shows that he's contributed more to special-interest groups than either of the two major parties. I'm going to edit that line out, since Spideman 3 is out, and it would seem prejudicial to include that piece of info to his bio. —The preceding [[Wikipedia:Sign your posts on talk

Even though people are editing out his politics I figure I'll add another bit on this page. Raimi supported the Israeli bombining of Lebanon in 2006 and signed an advertisement/petition declaring so http://www.hollywoodgrind.com/nicole-kidman-and-84-others-stand-united-against-terrorism/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.91.187.15 (talk) 01:31, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Conservative or conservative[edit]

On the inference that the line in his bio about his family indicates their affiliation with the Conservative movement in Judaism and not some sort of general, unspecified conservativism, I'm capitalising the C. Of course, if I'm wrong, please change it back -- with a citation if possible. For that matter, a citation would be good in any event. :) Be bold,Savant1984 00:46, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

The Shadow[edit]

According to Starlog, July 1997, The Shadow project is back in the works. Chris 09:27, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Rob Tapert[edit]

This article omits the rather pivotal relationship Sam Rami has with Rob Tapert, as i understand it, his business partner in renaissance pictures, who has co-produced almost every film and tv show with Sam Raimi. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.86.110.187 (talk) 21:22, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Sam's resident in Michigan and his ancestry:[edit]

136.181.195.31 (talk) 21:20, 26 February 2010 (UTC)Charles Hagler 26 Feb 2010136.181.195.31 (talk) 21:20, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Sam's grew up in the Village of Franklin,Michigan. The Raimi's are not listed in the Polk's City Directory for Birmingham for all the years he grew up. This error is due to the fact that Franklin residents use the Birmingham School District for their children education, so Sam graduated from a high school in Birmingham Sam's was born in Royal Oak because that is were the nearest hospital was. Sam's grandfather and grandmother were from Poland, they spoke Yiddish at home per the 1930 U. S. Census. The Russian ancestry bit come from the fact that modern Poland did not exist before 1919. The part of Poland that the Raimi came from was once part of Russia.

I tried to edit the article in Wikipedia but I never done it before and I made a mess of it.

Filmography[edit]

His filmography looks terrible! There is no need to explain what the movies are about, that's why they're linked to entire pages on the movie. I think we should use the notes section in his filmography to be used for his awards from each film. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iesusgygg (talkcontribs) 17:29, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

My kids just pointed out to me that in the Japanese version on Spiderman 3, Raimi's name is transliterated so that it's pronounced "RYE-MEE". This surprised me. Does anyone know for sure how it's pronounced? A pronunciation guide in the article would be helpful to dispel doubts. Acidtoyman (talk) 23:18, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

If you were to have any native Japanese speaker read his name, that's how they would pronounce it. For the record, Bruce Campbell pronounces it "RAY-MEE". I would go by that as Bruce has known Sam since high school. Fearsyth (talk) 00:38, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

The Last of Us Film Adaptation[edit]

I have a source which confirms that Raimi will produce but not direct the The Last of Us film adaptation. However the article currently has Raimi listed as the director rather than the producer. I tried to correct the article myself, but struggled with the formatting. Therefore I'd like to request that someone correct that please. The source is: http://www.cityoffilms.com/reel-news/breaking-sam-raimi-to-produce-the-last-of-us-movie/. Raimi is also credited as producer, not director on his IMDB profile: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000600/ Aoa8212 (talk) 20:08, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
