Max Fleischer's Superman
“And here we catch a brief glimpse of the seething anger Clark Kent must keep bottled deep inside. The resentment of being constantly humiliated by Lois Lane, and of being upstaged by her repeatedly, even as he must save her life. Can’t he have this one simple little story, Lois? Just this one?!”Sucker Punch (2011)
“I think the hardcore Sucker Punch fans are giving the film and its director way too much credit, especially considering how Zack Snyder would completely mishandle Superman just a couple of years later.”Dark City (1998): Exploring the soul through neo-noir sci-fi
“Dark City represents Proyas’s ‘difficult second album’ in many ways, with a detailed, introspective plot seemingly designed to ensure the masses would shrug.”The World’s End (2013)
“Slapstick comedy coincides with witty puns, and situational comedy is spawned from an otherwise dazzling fistfight. This is a film that not only blends genres, but seemingly creates new ones.”Oblivion (2013)
“And much like an amnesiac, you’ll embark on an adventure that’s all too familiar, and by the end you’ll have forgotten it all anyway.”The A-Team (2010)
In 2010, a great action movie adaptation of a hit 1980s action TV show was panned by critics for a crime it didn't commit. It promptly went to DVD, where it remained mostly forgotten. Today, still disliked by a majority of major film "critics", it survives as a movie loved by true fans of action-adventure and comedy. If you never saw it, if you had only heard bad things, and if you didn't know any better than to blindly trust the critics, maybe you should watch: The Cinema Slob's review of The A-Team!
