Logan (Wolverine) gets tangled up with a girl fleeing a mutant research and breeding lab that is definitely nothing like that of Dark Angel - (2000 show).

Not recommended.

This is like a DC version of X-Men. It was passable at best, and a good way to put the whole series and concept of comic book movies to bed. I think I'll end them all on this low note.

An alien grows up with super powers.

Bunches of this movie make no sense. It's cute and dated, but ultimately not great because of moments of terrible writing.

Some superheroes are assembled, wielding the power of deus ex machnica, and and defeat bad guys that make no sense.

A bad movie, only made passable by Gal Gadot being so ridiculously good looking I lack the words to word about her looks.

An infamous criminal hides from or fights bounty hunters for years, only to be declared the enemy of a galaxy-spanning crusade.

This comes after Riddick - (2013 movie), but isn't really a continuation as such. If you didn't like that movie, then obviously don't see this one. If you did, then this is a risky recommendation. It's definitely not the same in any way.

I didn't like it, but it's not awful or anything. Maybe the fact that I didn't take a lot of notes says something. Well maybe it says that Disgaea - Hour of Darkness - (2003 game) is more interesting to grind while watching.

An evil scientist works to realize his vision, but his previous superhero creations are assembled to go against him.

Russia's answer to Marvel, I guess. High-budget and shockingly-poorly executed. Odd and badly-written, it's not bad enough to be fun and funny. I recommend this movie for people who are tired of all the superhero movies.. it is like a vegetable cleanse.

A pretty princess turned-warrior leaves paradise to hunt the god of war during World War II.

It's got a slow pace, good mood and is not your usual superhero flick. The pretty girl really makes this movie, even making up for the ugly male lead.

Lost in space, a member of a misfit band of space-mercenaries is found by his father.

Another boring semi-superhero movie. I expect this will be mildly entertaining for people who really liked the earlier one.

In an odd way, see also Dark City - (1998 movie) and Watchmen - (2009 movie).

Iron Fist - (2017- television show) image

The son of a billionaire family survives them in a plane crash in the Himalayas, and returns after being raised by monks only to find their ancient enemies throughout his old home and business. Basically Marvel's Batman.

At first I was going to ignore this series, because the Iron Fist trailer made it look like utter trash, but the YUR A WHITE MALE "mainstream liberal media" response made me interested.

Even though the superhero genre is generally tiring, this show is well worth watching, and its response is a beautiful example of fake news manufactured by "social" "justice".

A day-walking vampire halts his crusade against them, forming a truce to hunt an even worse monster.

An adequate movie, with an acceptable amount of over-the-top nonsense. Definitely worth watching for fans of the original. Easily stands the test of time.

  • Properly titled Blade II
