What do you say to judgmental people that say Superhero films are for kids ?
I would agree with them, but say that's not a problem!
The problem is not that they're made for kids, it's that they're also made for idiots. I can't watch any of them without feeling like I have already seen this done dozens of times before, and better. Whenever friends or co-workers try to drag me along to the next big commercially pumped up show, the most common advice I am given to enjoy the film is "Just turn off your brain!"
What? Turn off my brain? Is that supposed to allow us to ignore the fact we have already seen this same old formulaic tripe repackaged for about 25 years? Logan and Deadpool (to a lesser extent) have been about the only ones I have found to be entertaining or enjoyable in the last decade.
Something happens, and then some villain that you're supposed to think is a big deal is found to be behind it, the heroes work against it, and they are successful but THEN catastrophe strikes! They almost lose, but bring it back in the last moment to save the day, and sometimes something tragic happens that you are meant to be sad over (or you can laugh because of how contrived it is and the cow-brained people actually in to it will give you their disgusted looks, that make you laugh even harder): that's like 98% of them in a nutshell. What's worse are the idiots who actually criticize the super hero films that have the audacity to do something more original and deviate from this formula.
