Yup.

But since this has been sold as a "trilogy"..... yeah, absolutely. This is the worst.

WB clearly doesn't care at all how their DC wing goes, else they'd have been more deliberate about the whole project. They've got other franchises which make bank for them - most notably HP and related content. It's the overriding reason I have refused to financially support anything out of the DCEU.
I've never understood WB's love affair with Snyder. 300 is the only film on the list of films he's done for them that played well with audiences, both in terms of opening weekend and word of mouth. Doing a little research on box office mojo you see just how much his film suffer from poor repeat business. Snyder's films on average drop around 59% in their second weekend box office (JL excluded). If you take out the Guardians movie which had good legs but a terrible opening and just add up his action films that second week average gets bumped up to a little over 64.5%.

The DCEU Supes appearances really aren't a trilogy. MOS&BVS could be considered the first two installments of a trilogy, but JL wasn't like CA: Civil War where Cap was clearly the centerpiece of a huge ensemble story. We'll have to wait and see if there's a MOS2 to call this a true trilogy.

Why is Blade getting so much hate in this thread? The first two are fantastic. Trinity is bad. But its not B&R or BvS/JL bad (which is what would be needed to knock the trilogy so far down that the first two are negated).

You saw it right ? Ryan Reynolds IS the only worthwhile part of that film. Even Wesley looks utterly disgusted with himself for being in it.

I would watch Blade a hundred times in a row Clockwork status before I ever consider watching BvS again.

I don't remember the second movie very well, but damn the first was awesome, especially when it was first released.

Agreed! I generally thought the first two Blade movies were pretty well received among comic book movies. Sad part is I enjoy B&R more than I will probably ever enjoy BVS, B&R is bad in a cheesy fun way.

It's not a trilogy, Zack didn't get to finish JL, so kind of a moot question right now.

True. But he is still responsible for JL because of the film he made before it. JL is a poorly conceived reaction to how awful BvS was. If BvS was a good film, then JL probably would have been too. It’s valid to place the three movies together, with Snyder as the principal driving force.

Im kind of unsure about that too.
How much of JL is really Snyders work?
His name is on but we know that Whedon has done many reshoots etc so it could be more like 50/50.

Still, Snyder is the one who was the driving force behind those 3 movies.
He is the one who planned them and all that.
So even if it is a bit unclear, imo its Snyders Trilogy either way.

I don't get it either. The first two Blade films more than make up for whatever bad is in Blade: Trinity.

I could never bring myself to say anything bad about the grandfather of the modern comic book movie. Comic book adaptations were dead in the water in 1997. If New Line hadn't taken the gamble on Blade in '98, many CBMs wouldn't have gotten the green light.

No. I think Raimi's Spidey flicks are the worst. Those flicks are beautiful garbage.
On a side note, The first Blade is still one of the top 5 best Superheroes ever made.

I can't believe how much of Snyder's stuff was cut out.

Maybe I was late to the Blade train, but I could never get excited about those movies. I tried to rewatch the first one recently and couldn't finish it; just not my kind of thing. And apart from Pan's Labyrinth I'm not a Del Toro fan, so again the second one doesn't do anything for me. It's not particularly well written and the CGI/make-up is pretty terrible. Don't remember much about the third one (which is probably a good thing).

Transformers and the original Ninja Turtles movies(not the 1st one) are way worse.

There's only one bad Blade movie.

I thought this was the consensus.

Is this some kind of revisionism to lower the first two movies reputation or something?

Also, I'm no fan of Snyder but I have a hard time believing MOS/BvS/JL is the worst.

The first two were flawed but worth discussion and debate and interesting to say the least. I guess when I see JL this weekend I can make a final judgement but the reception has been decent.

Eh, I loved the first one. The second one was good but didnt live up to the same hype imo. And yes, Trinity was bad.

Well I'm pretty much with you on Del Toro. I think all his Hollywood films are complete trash, I'm not a fan of his work at all. It reminds me of Sam Raimi's work.
His Spanish flicks however, are damn near masterpieces.

That being said, I'd rather watch Blade 2 than any of the Captain America films. haha!

The Captain America Trilogy was perfect. It only got better with each film.

It wasn't but it was still good and had some rewatch value.
-CA: 75%
-TWS: 90%
-Civil War: Perfect.

Together it makes an amazing trilogy

In your opinion, I'm sure.
I actually think they kinda got worst.

The first one was half a good movie until it became a semi-rom com.

The second one dropped the lavish style and charm of the first one for something dull, bland and uninspired. Before GotG came out, I thought this was the worst MCU flick.

The third one was the best overall but not in all areas and still, that's not saying much coming from me.

I'm just not a fan of the Cap movies at all And I surely don't agree that they got progressively better.

The Russos don't inspire my excitement for the next Avengers flicks. Their style just sucks.
