What is it with "review lemmings" and "box office profit" obsessed people?
Come on folks this is AVS. Why can't people give their own thoughts and insights to back things up? If ever there was a place for the profitability or mainstream media opinion of a film to be mocked as "evidence" it's here.
I love comic books and and I've seen a few (very few) really great comic book movies. It seems obvious to me this one is going to be awful, but I'll be there opening night to find out anyway - after all who knows. I sure didn't have high hopes for Spider-Man or X-Men and I ended up loving those (the first ones anyway).
Does any real film buff with a nice home theater who hangs out here really
make decisions to see things based on reviews and whether or not John Q. Public (the kind of moron that watches Survivor and listens to Justin Timberlake) spent ticket money on it?
If someone disagrees with my movie opinions the last thing I'd ever point out is that a movie I liked did well or was critically acclaimed. I mean come on, that's like claiming the modern oscars is anything more than a one-sided politically correct wankfest.
If someone wants to decry a comic book movie, talk about why you didn't like it, not whether someone else did.
