A boy is abused, gets hit on the head, is institutionalized and has a daydream.

Raises the bar for acting with this character. A good movie, but definitely not traditional. Riveting without a particularly obvious thread. It could have been a whole lot better, but it would have needed to delve into the true and far darker roots of the main character; his mother, and you can't do that because she's a woman.

After watching this movie I just realized I didn't see the earlier one. Whoops.

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".

  • aka Captainelle Marvelette, the SuPerHERo flim.

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.

Fucking awful.
