The one aspect that I felt was nailed pretty well in those first two films was the relationship between Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm. Almost everything else was kinda craptastic, but the interactions between Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis actually felt faithful to the source material.
Good question, something to put real thought into.
It is easy to come up with films I don't care to ever see again, and it is easy to come up with good to amazing films that I love to watch. That area with the proper amount of enjoyment that manages to *just* overcome the cringing moments... that's a thin line.
I would agree with Batman Forever. When I first saw it, I thought it was much better than it really was, but that was blowback from my detest of Batman Returns, which is a movie that I can't sit through. From the opening scene with the security guard (oh no, boiling acid!), to the insanity of Tommy Lee Jones' Two Face, this is a movie I cringe at quite often... but I also enjoy it enough that I can put up with the campiness. Don't get me wrong - it is right on the cusp of unwatchable, but somehow it doesn't go over the edge for me.
Iron Man 2 is hard to watch at times, but, again, the good makes it possible. I can put up with the seemingly solid hour and a half of Mickey Rourke soldering and Sam Rockwell chewing up the scenery like it was made of candy because of cool things like the suitcase armor scene and the cool battle scenes. Plus, Scarlett Johansson makes films easier to watch.
The original Keaton Batman also lands here for me. I enjoy a lot about the movie - the look and feel, Keaton was amazing... but there is... just... so much that is just... bad about the movie... set to a Prince soundtrack...
Sorry, where was I? Oh, yeah. And, I also liked Popeye. "And I yam what I yam what I yam and I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam 'cause I yam what I yam" and "He needs me he needs me He needs me he needs me He needs me he needs me" may be terrible lyrics, but they were catchy enough that I still remember them.
Understanding fully that I am not the intended audience, these are the thoughts I have:
Congrats! You finally distracted me from missing Superman's red trunks... by taking that ridiculous collar to the extreme and just making his entire neck post blue.
Why is Green Lantern's head so small? I mean, don't get me wrong - all the heads are small when put on those bodies, and Green Lantern, overall, is likely my favorite of these looks, but his head miniscule.
Batman... knee pads... ha!
You know, for over 30 years, I've been looking at the Flash, and I always thought, "You know, that costume sure could use some incoherent and extraneous yellow line patterns."
And, as always, "Aquaman talks to fish. Man, I loved those old dancing Aquaman bumpers on Adult Swim."
Hey, if kids like 'em, great.
I think they have taken parts from various lines, which is what gives them all the "Frankenfigure" feel. Or, at the least, they've adapted molds. A lot of that looks like Brave and the Bold stuff, but some is not.
