The studio that did Betty Boop also did the first superhero cartoon, and invented a few of the most famous things about Superman. This one is from before they decided he could fly, and you'll notice it's much less boring than Superman normally is.

It was always one of the weaker superhero movies, but it's worse today: Batman and the Joker are totally played out, and their weird creepy fans have destroyed whatever appeal they still have left after so much overexposure.

Avengers: Endgame (2019)




  • It was entertaining enough, but not very substantial. Once the new car smell wears off, this will be the one Avengers movie people skip. Remember "Of all the James Cameron movies, why is Avatar the highest grossing?"
  • They wanted an emotionally resonant movie with very serious scenes, and time travel. Those two don't match. Time travel never really makes sense in a plot, which is fine for a fun Star Trek one-off, but a disaster when you try to do something serious. Time travel is also a lazy and boring way to write yourself out of a corner.
  • The characters have long conversations about how they can't create alternate realities or change the past and they also kill 2014 Thanos, so how did the snap happen?
  • Captain America's shield gets destroyed because they needed a scene with emotional resonance and it is fine a few minutes later because they needed emotional resonance. I can't believe the same people that made Infinity Wars made this. This is the 'Dark Knight Rises' of Marvel films.
