I'll add another comicbook film:

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 (2014)

It's overlong, it's tonally all over the place, and the 3 main villains (Electro, the Green Goblin, and the Rhino) are all friggin' terrible... but, I just enjoy this more than THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN [Part 1] from two years prior.

This one's brighter, it's got more action (though spread over 2 hours and 20 min.!), it's funnier, the score is more memorable, and what I keep coming back to are the performances of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.  And the ending scene is especially poignant... whether or not you agree with this interpretation of "The Night Gwen Stacy Died," what ends-up on screen is still quite the heart-tugger.

I disliked that film sufficiently that I doubt I'll ever go back to it. The part I agree with you on i how terrible the villains are!

(Yup, basically any scenes that don't prominently feature the villains, I like!)

OK -- I admit that I did like the Dr. Manhattan-centered portion, Phillip Glass music excerpt and all (it seemed appropriate.)
