in MOS, i was very nervous most of the time.
I love how the world has become so cynical that the idea of people embracing a man who comes out of nowhere, miraculously saving a woman from falling while preventing a helicopter crash is now considered "Artificial" or "unrealistic".

So of course it stood out, because really there were NO other Superhero films, and nothing on the scale, budget or scope of SMTM, so of course it stood out.
Um, no. I did not miss out on anything.

I love how MOS defenders constantly try to undermine STM to justify their love for MOS. Its not enough for some people to just like MOS. It really bugs some that STM is still loved more in some quarters.
