      lies! Utter lies! Lequizamo's performance in Spawn was one of the films few saving graces.

      Number 33... they do explain it in the film... maybe watching some of these might help...

      I agree with these, especially numbers 27, 8 and 2. I don't agree with your form to sign up to comment as my surname has an apostrophe and your computers can't deal with it. #ApostropheHaters

      An interesting list. Not surprised there were so few from Dark Knight or Dark Knight Rises (such as 'how does Two-Face's eye stay in on the scarred side of his face?' and 'with Gotham under siege it's streets are empty, meaning that the citizens are hiding in the buildings and staying in. This means that when Batman is flying the bomb out of there and shoots his way through one of these buildings he's probably killed load of innocent civilians..' Number 8 was always odd, however the shield is thrown at Nom, not Zod. Number 30's Punisher War Zone Free-Runners was funny for the excessively violent ways they're taken out. The rocket to one during mid-summersault had me laugh out loud in the cinema. Number 17's Blade 2 pixel CGI characters for the fights was an odd choice. Yet in 2012, Man of Steel's fights often look just as artificial (though I still enjoyed both films).

      I listened to an interview with the director of Punisher: Warzone, and she said (i think, cant remember word for word) that the Free- Runners were put in at the studios request because they were the "in-thing" cos of Casino Royale but she hated them hence why they are dispatched in a brilliantly OTT way.

      I agree with most of these but I thought Leguizamo's performance in Spawn was brilliant. Also though when you described I could see where you were coming from, the Kevin Costner death scene in Man of Steel - though obviously tragic for the reasons you describe - seemed fated to happen after all the previous scenes. It was all about Costner believing his life less valuable than Supe's premature coming out... Not the same choice I'd have made but he does seem pretty adamant about it the rest of the movie, maybe he's just one of those stubborn overly manly Dads who refuse to be wrong even if it costs them loads...

      tamjamieson is so right. Leguizamo really went 110% in his performance of the Clown. The movie itself felt like a straight to VHS film overall (Yeah I said VHS) but Leguizamo was great.

      You do of course understand that within the context of the FF sequel, Reed Richards is hot. I agree with the poster that stated you should probably watch the entire movie before you criticize something about it. I mean, who wouldn't want to be Stretch Armstrong? ;)

      And another thing... Maybe you should read the comic book that the movie is based on, before you mention something that's a dramatic left turn. I've stopped reading at #43, in case it comes up in conversation. Wolverine this year for the most part is a faithful adaptation of the stories from the comics. Look it up.

      Also, the Juggernaut is not a mutant so the fact that Magneto ditched Mystique and kept Cain Marko (Juggernaut) was a huge hole. Why were his powers taken away when he got near the kid?

      Deadpool was ruined by giving him powers that Deadpool doesn't have and common sense dictates that if he has full length blades in his arms, when retracted he would have straight robot arms. He wouldn't be able to bend at the elbow. In the Knightfall series, Batman wasn't healed by medicine and recuperation. He was healed by someone with super powers (Shondra). So, in the batman universe, there are super powered people from time to time. They did ruin it in the film. As for him getting back to Gotham, it was a bad idea how they left no explaination but it's possible to do it.

      Nice one Bill2112. But Halle Berry has ZERO African accent and at no point does she ever portray the leader that Storm is in the comics. If they're going to let her have short hair, just give her the mohawk.

      The whole thing with people complaining about how Bruce Wayne got back to Gotham in The Dark Knight returns really annoys me. Everyone seems to forget that in Batman Begins, Bruce Wayne leaves Gotham with nothing and travels around the world with the same amount of nothing. Fair enough it took him a few years to make his way back, but that was because he spent most of that time training. We all know how intelligent and resourceful the character is plus he has a massive incentive to get back. So why can't he do it again?

      Number 21: Still a bit far-fetched, but all the cranes synchronize perfectly because one of them actually asks the other operators to align the cranes to help Spidey. Number 4: It was an adamantium bullet. Considering his skull was made from adamantium, it was fairly plausible to think that that is the only thing that could hurt him. Add the fact that he was shot in the head the "instant amnesia". Still, I would have established a Sabretooth-like Wolverine (an insensitive, sadistic, cold-blooded killer that is, just as Stryker stated in X-2) in the first minutes, erase his memory during the Weapon X intervention, and meet Kayla after that: then her (SPOILERS) death would have been more painful. Otherwise, great list. PS: I don't understand why you say "Brett Ratner's decision was..." or "Gavin Hood's way of getting around...". That was a script problem, one that neither of them wrote. In fact, the "memory erasing bullet" was in David Benioff's first draft (that in itself was much better than the finished film).

      Pssh. Say whatever you want about "The Spirit", that movie was awesome. Well, unless you're a fan of the comics. Then it's kind of s****y. But if you're not a comics fan, it's pretty awesome! Well... it is to me anyway.

      The super puddle was a homage to Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu Amores Perros, by Ang Lee who felt sorry for winning the Oscar for best foreign language film in 2000, with Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, even Nick Nolte look like the grimy scavenger hit man of Amores Perros, but, as much as most of his artistic decision on that film, were faulty or not understood.

      "Some m**********rs are always trying to ice-skate uphill." is an awesome off-kilter line and beats most of the usual stock retorts. @ericwillard - Juggernaut in the movie is a mutant (he's taken from the Ultimate version), which is why Leech can negate his power.

      There's nothing wrong with an Irish (not OIRISH) accent, Fassbender was very good in X-Men: First Class. You Brits are always complaining about being the baddies in American movies, now, when an Irish guy is cast as the villain, you've a problem with that too. You just can't please some people.

      Worst list I've ever read on this website. Its not that I necessarily disagree with many of the choices, but instead the snarky and unpleasant tone of voice that Matt Risley has chosen to write in throughout. This site should be about celebrating movies, and while its fine to poke fun this sort of disdainfulness goes several steps too far.
