Bad Superhero Movie Showdown 2007: Spider-Man 3 vs. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer vs. Ghost Rider
Four American superhero films were released in 2007: an extension of past failure (Fantastic Four 2), a brand new attempt at awful (Ghost Rider), the tragic last gasps of a series that at one point was the shining point of the entire genre (Spider-Man 3), and Underdog.
Snowpiercer was almost a different movie in the US.
“It’s a bit depressing to look at this film and all previous entries and realize that our heroes have spent just as much time fighting each other as they have saving the world, often from threats that somehow connected back to them anyway.”
“It’s not the nonexistent feelings of a fictional woman that’s drawing ire, it’s that two real men are revealing their real (and not so great) attitudes towards women.”
“‘More of the same’, though I’d still say it was better overall than the previous Avengers movie and trumps it on most levels.”
Riddle me this, Marvel fans: what do Captain America movies tell you about being a man? It’s a friendship and teamwork extravaganza, don’t you know.
“We’re in an age where fans are demanding diversity, and it’s a lot more effective to simply modify existing superheroes than to make new ones and hope they become popular. So just for the sake of argument, here are the top four reasons why Marvel should make Captain America a gay man.”
Captain America Lets ScarJo Act, Because He Is the Nicest Avenger
“It’s funny that in a world inhabited by iron-clad, god-like, and star-spangled superheroes, we end up with such bland and boring villains.
“So there’s the real lesson of the movie: it’s what’s on the inside that counts, as long as the outside looks like Chris Evans on a five-hour-a-day workout regimen.”
“I began to wonder if the sun really needed saving at all, or if these eight people were simply sent 93 million miles away so they could do the least amount of harm to anyone else.”

In her second requested review, Sofie takes on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, starring Michael Cera as a dorky adult-olescent whose life resembles old Nintendo games. You probably think her review will be much different than the dreaded Mr. Mendo review of the same movie, but will it? You gotta watch and find out!
“Michael Cera plays a 20 something slacker (shocker!) living in Toronto, who falls in love with a girl with seven evil exes, among them Superman and Captain America. Scott has to do battle with each ex in a series of Nintendo-inspired fight scenes, while writer-director Edgar Wright shamelessly attempts to create a new cult classic by stuffing in the maximum amount of video game in-jokes possible.”
