No I'm sure you weren't, all films are subjective, opinions no two are the same.

But yeah films with slow-mo explosions in make for good trailers and are easy to attract the GA to even if the film itself has nothing going for it, doesn't matter as long as you have bought a ticket, marketing have done the job.

I didn't realise it was such a long wait until Thor 2 however.

The Wolverine was boring, but still a million times better than Origins and Last Stand. I think it's a step in the right direction though.

I hate films with lots of explosions.

The moment I saw Pacific Rim tracking behind Grown Ups 2, I knew there's something wrong with the GA. Granted, PR isn't a perfect film or even a great one. It's a really good, fun film that is a spectacle to see in IMAX 3D. Grown Ups, however, is a turd covered in turd and should not exist. The Honest Trailer for part one said it best. And to think I had people around me telling me how amazing it was. I guess fart jokes can go a long way.

I really want to see The Wolverine again and to be devoid of my dad, whom I love, but who likes to ask questions about a movie that you know can be answered if you actually watch the movie. There was also someone in the row behind me that laughed incessantly at everything, even the unfunny parts. That can go a long way towards ruining a film.

Still, MOS is in the discount theaters and I really want to catch a third viewing before the long wait until Bluray and I can't get out to the movies as much as I used to.

Yeah if your stuck in a cinema with idiots it really can effect your experience of a film.

I know SM3 is not a popular film and not really one I like but the crowd I saw it with really didnt help and put me off it without it needing to be a bit rubbish.

While I have mostly good thoughts about most of this film (I love its deliberate pace allowing characterization to breath), and find it far superior to the borderline inept Man of Steel, I still find Iron man 3 a superior film. Iron Man 3 was concerned just as much about its titular hero as this film without incurring a jarring tonal shift in the third act. And while Killian was a not-so-great villain, he was more tolerable than snake woman and Robot Samurai. Both films have wicked, wicked action scenes though. My heart was thoroughly racing in the bullet train, mansion attack, barrel in the monkey scenes. Both films paced their action with the appropriate amount of tension and thrills, unlike the tedium of a structureless destruction as was MOS.

Hmmm I disagree with that. I think it might be a good movie, but I'm not impressed with the trailers I saw (w/c is quite surprising since Thor is my favorite phase 1 movie) and I don't like that last scene in the trailer where Thor smashed the big monster, it looked like bad visual effects.

Thor looks really good. I thought that trailer was sick, plus I didn't feel like I saw the whole flick. Feel like Im walking into that one not knowing much about the actual plot. Which is a good thing for once.

Of the 3 super-heroes movies I have seen so far this year I have really enjoyed all 3, at the moment I would put The Wolverine as the least of them but to counter that it is also the only one I havent seen more than once, and I usually dont have a definitive rating on a movie until I see it twice at least.

I didnt see G.I Joe 2 but overall so far this year has been really good for CBM movies, and with Kick-Ass 2 and Thor 2 still to come.

G.I. Joe 2 is easily the worst film that I saw this year.

Worse than Die Hard 5?

I actually enjoyed the first G.I Joe movie as dumb fun, I do want to see the sequel to see if the same happens.

G.I Joe 2 was bad...but it wasn't THAT bad.It has a TV movie feel to it and the story was kind of dumb,but it was fast paced, got a couple of great action scenes( Snake eyes vs ninja!)...and The Rock!

Surprisingly, I actually agree with you. Couldn't believe I liked the first one more. That and Elysium are on my worst list. Really wanted to like both.

The trailer of Thor:The dark world looks good.It certinly looks better than any
preview of Iron Man 3.

Untill Iron Man 3 I though thor was weakest MS film and even then that was
because of earth scenes.I liked the asgard parts of thor.

My only concerns on thor are 1:Bringing back the unnessary comic relief character of Darcy and 2;Concernes they are going to have a redemption arc for Loki(although less concerned about that after latest trailer)

I put G.I. Joe 2 In same feelings I had for Iron Man 3,Star Trek Into Darkness,and Man of steel.The first G.I. Joe was better.I liked that.However both g>I. Joe films are masterpieces compared to Michael Bay's transformers
films.I didn't like them dumping most of G.I. Joe cast.

Really, you think the GA are fed up with Superhero movies? Look at what movies flopped this year, and which ones made money.

Seems to me they are fed up with Big Budget blockbusters showing up every week. Theres no break. That does not single out superhero flicks in any way. Superhero flicks are the ones making cash and still in demand. No one is forcing them to see IM3, MOS or The Wolverine. Most audiences seemed to enjoy all three of those.

Hahaha Exactly! And with DOFP, Avengers 2 and Batman Vs Superman on the horizon things will not be quieting down anytime soon. All the studios are going full throttle.

I do wish there weren't quite as many movies being released though. Nothing has any chance to breathe. And studios are clearly cutting back on the marketing, you don't see many trailers on TV these days. Remember the days when there were trailers all the time, usually narrated by that man with the funny gruff voice.

The trouble is all the dross films being released like RIPD, Grown Ups 2 and Die Hard that still make money off the name in some cases that just get in the way. But then if they make money companies will continue to churn them out.

I think we would have all survived this year if those three had never been released though.
