A popcorn film is film that appeals to a mass audience. It can house a variety of tones. So yes, Raimi-man, Webb-man, Avengers and TDK are all popcorn films.

A popcorn film is usually one that doesn't have great writing, and is just there to pass the time.

The quality of writing is inconsequential; as a popcorn film is a very broad term that defines any film that is ultra popular with the casual moviegoer. This very broad criteria can house serious films, fun films, anything in between, as well as well written films, badly written films, and anything in between. Ergo, a well written movie doesn't automatically mean it's a popcorn film anymore than a badly written film would.

Even if we were to use your false, manufactured definition of what a popcorn film is, Avengers still fits the bill as it had superb writing.

I actually disagree that Spider-man is a popcorn film. Way too much angst to be a popcorn film.

If that's your idea of popcorn, I'd hate to have to sit through your idea of a drama.

Not that angst is necessarily a bad thing. Hell, done right, it can be a good thing. Too much, and well, you have Spider-man 3.

Popcorn to me is a film with lots of action, relatively little plot, little depth, and little drama. Nothing that requires too much thinking. Transformers, Avengers, Battleship, etc. Some are obviously (a lot) better than others.

Its funny, when he was announced for Avengers I thought he should direct Spidey or X-Men instead.

Yeah anyone who's watched the first 3 seasons can see the Spider-Man inspiration in the series. Hell, I think she even makes a joke once that she can feel her Slayer sense tingling.

Aren't you overhyping the movie by calling it great? Should everyone who enjoys the movie put footnotes at the end of their conversations/posts listing plotholes, inconsistencies, and gripes with the film?

Well how is the movie overhyped if not by fans saying its a great film? or that it does right what other similar films(transformers) did wrong. Care to clarify?

A long time ago I thought about Joss Whedon making a live action Spider-Girl series.

It'd pretty much be Buffy in spandex, only less demons and more gangsters. And instead of Giles you have retired Peter Parker as a supporting character. Also Kat Dennings...

*Daydreams*

First of all, about the first page of this thread:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA




Second, a thousand times yes! After seeing Avengers, I feel Joss Whedon would be PERFECT for Spider-Man. THIS is the tone the movie should have had! And THAT is how Spidey's quipping should have been handled!

Your bias is showing. Your theory is based on the incorrect view that all those 'popcorn' films you mention are literally nothing more than action scenes. In fact, all those films have scenes with characters that talk and stuff, all of them have angst. They are all done to different degrees of success but Spider-Man falls very neatly into the same category, introduce character, angst of some sort, simple plot with a few action scenes, more angst/drama, character arc complete. Spider-Man is an archetypal 'popcorn blockbuster'.

I didn't realize the term "popcorn film" had a textbook definition and college study course attached to it. Fascinating.

HAH! Wowsers. The Avengers must have been a real nightmare for you.

But seriously. Joss is the man.

I have a feeling Whedon's Spidey would be wisecracking quite a lot. Which would be awesome.
