I hate shaky cam. /grouchy smurf

But Winter Soldier made my top 5 all-time superhero movies so I'm glad they're doing Infinity War.

At least I know they're capable of a home run.

Together it makes an amazing trilogy
If TFA was improved a fair bit for me (it's great to a lot of others I know) then it really would be an awesome trilogy. Not many films with a better combination of 2nd and 3rd film.

Yep and I don't think there's many directors I would trust with this project.

Think CA has the strongest combined 2nd and 3rd films in the genre personally.

Hmm.

Yeah strongest first two has a few strong contenders.

Strongest 2nd and 3rd? Cap is in a class by himself.

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.
Yeah, I'm not particularly fond of their drab shooting style and direction. Like Whedon, they never quite made the jump from tv to film, and as a result their movies lack that special pizzaz (but I could say that of most of the MCU in general). The camera work, the costumes, the VFX.

Personally, I think CW would've been so much better if they had just focused on Cap & Iron Man, and cut the other Avengers, cut Zemo, cut the romance subplot (what little their was). The film was at its best when it focused on their clash of personalities and Bucky's involvement in the assassination of the Starks.

Can't say I'm all that excited about even more characters being crammed into A3&4 (a la X-Men), especially the characters from GOTG whom I don't like. All of the costumes are unimaginative, and bringing back Silvestri seems like a step in the wring direction (especially after Elfman improved on his original theme).

Still like any of the Cap films more than Blade, though.

That's actually nice to hear. Most people are full of nothing but praise for those films. I don't think they're bad, just underwhelming and nowhere near the masterpieces they're frequently called.

Maybe my thoughts on Blade would be different if I'd grown up with them. But I was too young to see the first two when they came out, and by the time I got around to watching them I'd already seen much better vampire and superhero films.

But different strokes keeps life interesting. Maybe someday I'll give the first Blade another chance.

The first Blade will always be in my top 10.

I remember getting goosebumps in the theater watching the action scenes. Especially the blood rave.

haha! I don't think they're bad either, I just don't think they're good. Like, I can totally live without ever watching them again and I doubt I'd ever muster up the desire to.

hahahaha! Well, Blade is definitely a product of its time but its one of my favs of all time. Its just so bad Ass! And I really can't think of many Vampire movies, superhero movies or movies in general better than this one.
I can maybe name 15-20 in general but thats still not that much and stretching a little hahaha!

But ya, You can't force yourself to enjoy what you don't. Like you said, Different Strokes.

The title alone gives people a 'way in' on that one...factor in the amount of gloating Marvelism on here and that's what's gonna happen.

I personally would put Snyder's "trilogy" above the wolverine "trilogy" and possibly also around par with Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. (far lower lows in SM3 and XO:W imo) not by much mind you.

I've never seen superman 3 from the 80s. And i have a lot of trouble calling Batman Forever a sequel to Batman Returns. So I won't count those.

The only way to change the title is to get Zaddy to make Justice Bush League part 2.

Then it wouldn't be the worst trilogy, but something else.

Indeed. This thread is in the misc comic films section. Unlike the silos that exist in other sections of the forum, this one gets people from all sides. Don’t be surprised if you don’t like what you hear, if you’re so deeply entrenched.

Gloating Marvelism v Zaddy2Deep4U should be a thread.

If only Zack Snyder had let Batfleck say the greatest line in movie history in BvS, it would have been my favourite movie of all time.

“Tell me... do you bleed?”

“The bat is dead... bury it.””

“Some Kryptonian mother ****ers are always trying to ice skate uphill.”

10/10

Meh. His name is in the credits.

Maybe if we included the original Ninja Turtles movies it wouldn't be the worst... I'm joking Snyders trilogy is the worst trilogy of any franchise.

Yeah, I definitely prefer Snyder's DC films to the Wolverine films; I was not as impressed by Mangold's contributions as most seem to be.

I might also prefer them to the original Superman films, too. Not the first one mind you, but at least 3 & 4. I haven't watched the Donner cut of 2 in awhile so I'll refrain from definitively stating which one I prefer.

But Raimi's Spidey films are some of my favorite in the genre (yes even 3, though less so). The DCEU has nothing on those films.

I really wanted to challenge the premise of this thread. But trying to come up with something? ... I got nothing. So I guess it really is the worst superhero movie trilogy.

Yeah, BvS/JL was the fear everyone had for LOTR. If they don't like the first one, what happens with the sequels?

But honestly, I think we will see some more "shared universe" attempts crash and burn. Everyone has already forgotten that Universal's "Dark Universe" and Sony's "Ghostbusters" universes died in the crib. And with the Transformers movies losing their luster more and more in America, it is crazy to think that Paramount is about to try to hammer us with a Transformers movie every year, which has already begun and is continuing into the Bumblebee movie nobody asked for next year.

The Hobbit Trilogy. And I'm not entirely joking. With that said there are plenty of worst franchises that have had three consecutively bad movies. But any with the kind of "thematic" tissue of what Snyder built? That is hard to think of a comparison.
