Yay Or Nay: Superhero Things I've Watched
I'm not crazy obsessed with Marvel and DC movies or anything - though sometimes I wish I was - but I have watched a few of them and figured I'd share my opinion/experiences with them. I've definitely liked some more than others, and obviously some people enjoy these movies much more than I do, but this is honestly what I felt toward each movie at the time I watched it. I decided not to include any of the X-Men movies on this list because they're all perfect.
Movie: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Reason: I haven't watched any Batman movie ever, and if I have watched a Superman movie before it would have been one of the older ones, so I had no idea what I was getting into. I only wanted to watch this because I saw the trailer on dictionary.com one day and I was like "Hahaha look how stupid those two look I need to watch this. Also, the graphics are gorgeous." But yeah, it totally paid off because this is now my favorite superhero movie ever. I can't wait to buy the 3D version of the DVD once it's released.
Movie: Man Of Steel
Reason: I'd seen bits and pieces of the film while my brother watched (and re-watched) it, but I only decided to give it a try after watching Batman v Superman and falling in love with Superman. Also that one book by Gwenda Bond had me shipping him with Lois like a crazy person. However, after dedicating my college Friday to this movie, it was a real struggle not to fall asleep because the pacing was so slow. Again, the graphics were beautiful, and I'm not sure how much more can be done with Superman, but I was disappointed.
Movie: Captain America: The First Avenger
Reason: The only reason I watched this movie was for Peggy Carter, and she's also the only reason I enjoyed this movie as much as I did. I found this movie to have a very cliché superhero tone, if that makes sense, and it bored me, unfortunately. I did enjoy laughing about Steve's bobble-head appearance, and Howard Stark and Peggy were awesome, but overall, I didn't like the movie very much.
Movie: Captain America: Civil War
Reason: Not having watched any of the Iron Man movies - more out of laziness and lack of time than anything - and not being able to make it through the second Captain America movie, I'm not even sure why I was so excited for this movie, but I was. I guess I just like seeing superheroes pitted against each other? Either way, this was such a fun movie to watch, and I just wish that it could have been longer. Also, did anyone else notice Watson's American accent?
TV Show: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
Reason: I really liked season one of the show, but by season two of the show I was forcing myself to get through it, and I haven't even caught up with the third season yet (I'm not even sure if I want to anymore). The cast is great, and I love Coulson, but the plot just seems to be dragging on and I just haven't been invested - or even entertained - lately.
TV Show: Agent Carter
Reason: I know Peggy Carter isn't technically a superhero, but she's from the superhero universe, and she kicks butt like nobody's business. She basically the baddest girl out there, and her show is just so much fun to watch. Plus her romance with Sousa is the most perfect thing ever. Season one was brilliant, and season two started out the same but sadly, ended rather anticlimactically. Even so, this show will always be one of my favorites.
