Even if I concede that, and I certainly never would, I didn’t even address the travesty of Deadpool over Nolan Batman.

In his defense, Deadpool is really well written, and Nolan's Batman might as well have been written by George Lucas. Nolan is an amazing director and horrible writer, just like George.

I liked them when they came out, and still do, but the Nolan Batman movies havenít aged that well for me. I have almost zero interest in watching any of them again. If I had 2 hours to kill and had to choose between those 5 movies to watch(deadpools and the 3 Batmans), it would be a tough choice between deadpool 1 and 2.


Edit: shit

A glutton for punishment, Napa note his file.

I didnít really enjoy Deadpool 1 that much. Just something off about it.

Well, since you asked..

1) Spiderman Homecoming
2) Winter Soldier
3) Black Panther
4) Ragnorak
5) Civil War
6)GotG 1
7) Iron Man
8) Avengers
9)Captain America First Avenger
10) Ant Man

I should have asked, why SMH number 1? I really liked it but number 1 seems like a stretch.

The reason I liked SMH is the same reason really that IW isn't on my list. I like more personal stories rather than big spectacles that rush through character development and try to do 10 things at once. I loved Vulture (who is a corny, terrible villain in the comic). He was well developed and even likable.

All of the action was well executed and impactful, none of the cgi vs cgi wars between armies that are boring and lack any tension. Plus, I generally love the Tony vs Spiderman dynamic. Also PP was the first credible PP onfilm. He was perfect as Parker.

I would certainly agree that this actor is by far the best peter Parker. And the movie is really, really good. Not making my top ten is not a negative reflection. Iíve become a huge fan of these movies and love almost all of them.

I agree too. Itís a really good movie. I just prefer the other avengers so I like those movies more. But I will say Spidey is great in Civil War. Love him during the battle at the airport.

No. I think I was responding to someone who said Jason Segal > Seth Rogan

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont

Face/off and The Matrix are glaring ommissions. Can we all agree that Keanu is the GOAT action hero

face/off was a tough omission for sure. the matrix, to me, is a science fiction film and not an action film, so i wouldn't put it in this category.

Perhaps, but demolition man just has that 90s feel whereas Matrix was groundbreaking.
