    I liked the two Fantastic Four movies with Alba, Gruffudd, Chiklis and Evans, but as I said earlier they weren't the groundbreaking, game-changing movies we've come to expect since the MCU came into play.  I, for one, would have liked there to be more movies with that cast--but I doubt Alba would have returned after director Tim Story's treatment of her.  (He was supposed to have told Alba in one scene of the second movie that she "Wasn't crying prettily enough."  Just how is one supposed to cry pretty?)
     
    But again--no Goldface?  No Argoman?  No Black Scorpion? (The first movie was okay, the TV series was a tremendous disappointment.)  No Blankman?

    finally finished Riyria Revelations series. Michael J Sullivan may be an author I put on my list to check on for other stuff. Already have Chronicles and can't wait to read. Thanks Hermit for recommending them.

    From the bits I've seen of it, that must have been a pretty small diamond.
     
    The FF movies in the 2000s were at least entertaining to me, if not precisely good.

    I never understood the hate for Daredevil. Sure, it has flaws, but it was one of the earliest superhero movies to be filmed in comic-book style and imagery. Some parts are very well done IMHO. The scene where Matt can visualize Elektra from the sound of rain falling on her is hauntingly beautiful.

    Remove the vomit-inducing Teeter-Totter fight scene,  and I'd give Daredevil a solid B.

    Well, they're not _that_ good, Sir, 
     
    but I'm with the general crowd:  most of them are a lot better than their reputation.
     
    Above all the others on this list, I think Green Lantern is the most perfect example of this.  It catches a lot of flak, but it wasn't that bad.  It was, for the most part, an enjoyable movie.
     
    Reading through the list, it seems that too many people go in to see "a superhero movie," without any actual understanding of who that particular hero is, what his setting is like, and what he does within it.
     
    Everything sucks if you've got the wrong context.

    Finally finished latest season of Shield, gotta say enjoyed it. Thought ending was great and with Endgame, helped to setup the Dr. Strange movie I think. Thought was a well done ending to the series too, but then, for the most part, i enjoyed the whole series.

    I held off seeing it until my LA vacation so I could watch it in 3-D at Grauman's Chinese Theatre. They had museum-style displays of props form the movie, it was awesome!
     
    I console myself that the perfect person to play the role (Mako) passed away a decade before the movie was filmed.

    Finally had a chance to watch the Snyder Justice League Preview. His preview suggests a team coming together, hope and the heroes being heroes (of course, along with Cyclops father being killed in an explosion). My first thought was, how many of us actually believe Snyder wanted to bring a movie about hope and heroes being heroes, etc. I think I might call shenanigans and that this wasn't actually the movie "He wanted to put out" but instead has put together a movie that he can say "see, my vision would have worked".
