I was never into to comic books but I really enjoyed Iron Man
. I thought that Iron Man 2
was very poorly written and directed with The Avengers
being by far, the worst of the group. The actors, outside of Downey were given next to nothing to do, the dialog was clunky and dopey and the direction awful. Mark Ruffalo was outstanding but barely even a blip on the radar and Jeremy Renner's talents were completely wasted.
I really enjoyed Ed Norton's turn as the Incredible Hulk and I'm really hoping for a version starring Mark Ruffalo, because IMO, he's the perfect Bruce Banner. I enjoyed Thor
and have watched it on several occasions and am looking forward to the sequel. I like Chris Evans and the cast of Captain America
but the movie was slow and somewhat dull to me.
The Dark Knight Trilogy will be difficult to "beat" because of the pure cinematic scope, cast and brilliant direction by Chris Nolan. But it doesn't surprise me that Man of Steel
is seen as a flawed movie by so many (with a very low Rotten Tomatoes score to boot) because Zach Snyder is a hack. I've never liked his vision, his direction or his storytelling.
