Superman Unbound

Rather substandard animation, but nevertheless entertaining. Supergirl was more interesting than Superman and Brainiac was a rather dull cardboard cut-out.

Watch once if you are a fan of the character.

Avengers, The

The Avengers is interesting as it unites characters from a number of other movies (a first?) to for a "super-team" of superheroes to save the Earth yada yada. However, it is terribly clichéd, the dialogues often vapid, and the plot resembles a sieve. That said, the whole point of the film appears to be a rather convoluted attempt at engineering a situation where the CG guys can have fun giving us a superhero war scene. And my, how they succeeded.

Watch the film for the battle scene towards the end. The rest is mostly dull.

Very good, but also highly overrated. Joker was great and the storyline was decent. However, Bale was average and the lack of Katie Holmes stung. I am probably one of the few who prefers the first part.

Iron Man

Iron Man was surprisingly good, at least for the first half. The second half was well below par, with the scriptwriter not knowing what to do with this here superhero and thereby ruining the movie. However, Robert Downey Jr. was the clincher and elevated this movie to a "good". Based on the post-credits clip from The Incredible Hulk, it looks like the next movie will be Hulk vs. Iron Man which should be interesting albeit, with the end result obvious to everybody beforehand.

aka Hulk 2, I had no idea that the actors had been changed ... Edward Norton was stereotyped as per usual and Liv Tyler wasn't half as good as Jennifer Connelly. Is it just me or is she borderline chubby now? Give it a miss unless you're a fan of the series.

Insipid hollywood-ized version with poor direction, bad editing and a lacklustre story. Stay away from it.
