Superhero movies are for the adventurous child in all of us that died on me when I walked into that room with mom and dad having sex.

Better than your dad and uncle. Probably. I guess it depends.

Happened to me when I was 10. It's why I kick pigeons.

Oh shit that's horrible I hope you are ok.

Why kick pigeons when you can club baby seals?



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

Depends on the person. If it is someone I have no intimacy I'll just ignore. If I know the person I'll fire back with something that is more childish but socially accepted like "Worse is to watch this silly braindead soap operas".

Nothing.

You just keep enjoying what you enjoy.



 

My solution is to always call them “films” or better yet, “pictures”. “I just saw the new Wonder Woman picture.”

Also, nobody I know cares what movies I watch...except my wife who can’t really complain because her favourite films are the Harry Potter pictures.



"You are correct."



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I'd say most of these movies are uninspired and often bad but that has little to do with their target audience, which is not kids. Given their budget, they need to cater to a lot of people's tastes, thus generating movies "for everyone". Making movies for children that are enjoyable by anyone requires a different effort and few companies achieved it.



I don't think theres anything wrong with adults enjoying super hero movies. I just don't understand how many are not sick to death of pretty much the same movie with different color tights at this point.

Often times you may come across those judgmental people whether it be on the internet or in real life they will judge you and say you are a grown man (or woman) why do you watch those superhero movies?  For instance a few days ago my coworker John complained to me that he is sick and tired of hearing other "grown men" talk so enthusiastically about the Avengers and other superhero movies, how can a self respecting man enjoy those movies? he wondered. I told him that although I agree that those movies are not interesting I have no right to tell others what to watch and what not to watch.

How do you deal with criticism like that?

I for one believe all movies are made for everyone and although I personally do not like superhero movies they do not interest me and not because I believe they are too kid friendly for me they are just not my style. To give you a better understanding of what movies I am about, I love No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood, Shawshank Redemption, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Apocalypse Now,The Godfather films (except for the 3rd one).   You may find those movies boring and uninteresting and that is exactly my point, everyone has different tastes in movies.   But how do we deal with criticism ?

In a nutshell: Fuck you, Mother Fucker.

I actually would not say this, but in principle that's the attitude I take to stiff neck fools.

The question would be why you believe they are the same movie with different color.  Is it that the hero always wins.

A hero with a tragic backstory taking down a villain and saving their city or the world.

I mean is there one where the hero actually loses?(not counting the latest Avengers since its a two parter)

Maybe one where there is no villain?
