Yeah, I was pretty interested in GL until that first trailer. Whereas all of Cap's trailers have done nothing but make me more interested.

"Independence Day" was one of the highest grossing international films of all time. That movie borders on jingoism. I think the negative effect any patriotic elements of the films will have internationally are WAAAAY overblown.

You give people a good time at the cinema, and it doesn't matter what country they are from, they'll show up.

That was also pre-9/11 and the 'War on Terror'

I'll take a stab that this will come in between 75-80%

GL's failures have nothing to do with Cap's success or failure!
I wasn't talking about superhero fatigue on any level. I only really meant that too much of something can be a bad thing in instances, I have said more than once that I think that the superhero genre isn't going to die.

Hey, here is a tip for you, if you dislike me as much as you do and don't like my opinions then why don't you do yourself a favor and you know? Put me on your ignore list and call it a day? The ignore list option was made for a reason.
And by the way, if you try to make it personal again by taking a shot at me again in another thread, I will report you.

Anyways, I have reversed my prediction and think that the movie will land in the 60s percentile category on Rotten Tomatoes.

Even though I changed my guess, I still feel as if the T-meter could go in just about any direction.

I'd be cool with a 70%-80% rating.
As long as they praise Hugo Weaving/Red Skull!

At this point, I'll be happy as long as things stay within the red (fresh). But I'm hoping for 75% +.

lol @ 90% guesses

taking into account who the director is, track record for said director, and estimates

62%... and that's being generous

You mean the guy that worked on Raiders of the Lost Ark and Star Wars, designing both Boba Fett and Yoda? And directed October Sky and The Rocketeer, two great period pieces?

I'm thinking Cap will likely end up with 80% RT rating.

lol why so sensitive?

Plus if you're going to be selective why leave out 'Hidalgo', 'Jurassic Park 3' and of course the much adored (whoops) 'Wolfman'?

Nice try stockpiling a career with misc info btw you sly dog you

^You seem like a bit of a troll. There is a nastiness about your posts and I for one don't care for it.

Hell I'm not a big JJ fan either but I know trollish behavior when I see it.

Hidalgo, and Jurassic Park 3 were awesome. JP3 I thought was way better than The Lost World. Wolfman was not Joe Johnston's fault at all. That movie was a mess from the beginning.

I don't think 90+ is that big of a stretch... it seems the consensus is that it's "as good or better than" Iron Man (94%)
