I'm pretty sure I saw all of the Blade films.
They were mostly enjoyable, but they never made me want to get immersed in the whole genre. I only saw pieces of the original Spidey franchise. I didn't dive headlong into the genre until 2008. I missed a bunch of stuff. The Ang Lee "Hulk" film, Ed Norton's "Hulk", the last Supes reboot, etc.
When I think about it though, the "X-Men" films were really my reintroduction to the genre (I'd been away since I was a kid). I think I've seen EVERY film in that franchise. They were so spread out though. The excitement would come and go.
