Well finally got to see Thor 2 today and while it had its moments it was let down by the usual Marvel universe problems, weak bad guys, some forced humour, average romance plot and over reliance on Loki, not bad but not great.

Sooo rather surprised that Wolverine is actually my favourite comic book movie of this year, really didnt think it would be possible and if you had said that at the start of the year I would have laughed in your face, so my list as it finally stands would be:

1. The Wolverine 9/10
2. Man of Steel 7.5/10
3. Thor TDW 7/10
4. Kick Ass 2 5.5/10
5. Iron Man 3 5/10
6. Red 2 4/10

Overall I have to say a dissapointing year compared to what I was anticipating, but we did get a great Wolverine film so I will take that at least.

Here is to hoping 2014 is better overall!!

I thought when it comes to visuals and action, this is a pretty good year for CBM but... right now the most important thing to me when it comes to movies is the story. I don't know when I became so nit-picky with these films. Yes not a great year for CBMs.

Wolverine/Thor Dark World- Time will tell which I prefer.
Iron Man 3
Kick Ass 2
Man Of Steel-Still enjoyed, but easily my biggest disappointment of the year.

Even in RT, its in good shape compare to the other CBM movies. Damn, if only the last act was as good or better than the 1st 90 minutes.

I hope Fox and James Mangold take a big note of this when they finally work on Wolverine 3.

Same, with a better 3rd act TW would have at least been the equal of MOS for me, if not better than it. The 3rd act was just so average and strange compared to the rest of the movie, plus it was the worst action sequence in the movie, it just let the whole thing down a bit. Still a great movie of course, but overall MOS was my favourite of the year so far.

I loved the Wolverine vs Shingen fight. Wolverine running from a giant Silver robot, wasn't even remotely as exciting. If they would have only managed to create another showdown at the end, that rivaled the Shingen fight.

What action scene are you talking about?

I don't think the fight scenes in the last act were that bad, things were just happening so fast.

I thought Man of Steel was easily the best comic book movie of the year but I never thought that The Wolverine would be my second favorite comic book movie of the year. I thought for sure it would be Thor but that wasn't the greatest movie in the world. This was pretty dang phenomenal all throughout even the shaky third act. I wish the costume scene would have stayed in though, man that would just been mind blowing

The Wolverine was great, apart from the weak fight at the end.

I don't get the hate towards Viper though, I liked her character. She reminded me of the classic 80s villain and had a touch of Catherine Tramell about her.

I think the Shingen fight made the final fight all the more disappointing. Wolverine vs Shingen was the highlight of the movie for me and it just seemed to go downhill after that, culminating in a really poor final fight. Maybe the EE and extended Ninja fight will make this not the case.

Wolverine vs SS, the final fight should be the climax of the movie, in both that it is the end and the best part, not every CBM has done this and TW was one of them. Wolverine vs SS was the worst fight in the movie for me, and the worst action sequence as well.

I definitely agree with you on that... Not only was the fight with Shingen better executed, it had an emotional layer to it. Wolverine's rage in that scene is strongly felt, its vengeance not only for Mariko but for Yukio as well.

Its like 2 minutes but its so epic, its so visceral and for most of the fight Wolverine is effectively losing. Shingen is just a normal man, and yet he probably landed like 3 or 4 hits which would mean death for anyone else!

Plus Wolverine effectively performing reverse hara-kiri/Seppuku... It was so perfect, it perfectly represented the "Wolverine" part of Logan coming back to life. The writing leading up to that scene was just perfect, Shingen's apparent death by Viper's poison was awesome! Wolverine's self surgery epic! Yukio Vs Shingen was even better than Wolverine VS SS!

Sanada and Jackman really gave it their all in that scene and you can feel it when you watch it. Facing a CGI Warrior you don't have that intensity to feed off of, So while Jackman gives it his best, its not quite as intense as the Shingen battle.

Maybe Fox felt that they needed a big end, but in all honesty that Battle is my favourite One on One Fight in a comic book movie...

Im surprised that Thor fell quite as far as it did, the last time I looked it was in the 80's!! I guess it must have had a bad run after that!!

The critic meter for superhero flicks lost all credibility for me this year. I thought they were way too harsh on all of them except for IM3.

For the movies I have seen (IR3, TW, TDW and MOS), I thought the critics were spot-on. Obviously they focus on the story, the script and character developments first. Action sequences, set pieces and visual effects only come second. But for some mainstream viewers, its the other way around.

I disagree, i don't think they were harsh at all. All the movies got the ratings they deserved.

I just don't see that. But hey we all have our preferences. Thought MOS, Wolverine and Thor where all better then the RT. Especially with multiple viewings. But Kick Ass 2 is nowhere near that level of bad. Nowhere. Maybe not in everyones taste with the violence and humor, but that comes with the material and for what it was going for it actually improved on the book and told a solid continuation as a film sequel for those characters stories. Critics should have realized that imo. I havn't disagreed with a rating that much in awhile.

Most the time I think the RT can be legit, but this new age of critics is a different beast with social media and personal expectations when it comes to genre films. They can come off way too pretentious and don't give full credit when it's due at times. I expect alot of the overall views on these past years comic films to be much more positive come 10 years. If I let the RT choose my films this year I would have missed out. I personally just can't rely on them.
