An under-appreciated reporter learns her father's secret experiments had survived his death, in the form of vigilante ninjas.

I had low expectations for this movie, and they were met.

Something about alien technology being invented on Earth for some reason, and when an engine is shot it somehow makes a SuPerHERo, and something about the tesseract which I think was the invention but isn't it a power stone?

It's awesome. It must be awesome, because anyone who doesn't think it's awesome hates women. So I'm told. No really, all the movie people and reviewers and media all say that. Well ahead of time. As if they knew it wouldn't be a good movie ahead of time and wanted an excuse for all the "troll reviews".

A head is found in the garbage and is stitched back onto a body like science fiction necromancy.

A twelve-year-old-girl-friendly science fiction movie. It had such potential, but it absolutely ruined it by having no resolution.

Stark Enterprises founds Damage Control, a high-security company doing cleanup after The Avengers' massive fight, but Spiderman learns that its technology is being poached by criminals.

I didn't even know this movie existed. It's fair. Recommended for the general audience who enjoys the other movies, though it's definitely not as good as others of its ilk.

Deadpool learns that his murder-spree has a consequence, and when his coin and a teddy bear struggle, a time machine lights fists on fire or something. Also X-Force.

Fucking awful.

A space-environmentalist works to cull the people who don't recycle, but polluters aim to stop him.

An adequate movie which for once has a sensible major plot arc.

Our favourite web slinger has relationship problems.

Still quite a good movie. Recommended if you liked the earlier one.

A breakthrough in rapid genetics-alteration has unintended side-effects.

I'm fond of the earlier ones, but I think they get classed as "nostalgia". This is a very good movie, and that's likely enhanced by Emma Stone, who is incredibly attractive in dress, appearance and action.

After the assassination of his father, a new king is crowned for an insular but extraordinary nation, but he does not go unchallenged.

I decided to watch this, breaching my "no more superhero movies" position, because there was some fascinating drama surrounding it.

Not recommended: I can't understand why anyone would think this is particularly good for any particular reason. Aside from being all manner of racist, it does not provide any intellectual cud to chew on.
