Kotaku recently published this story about how this year's superhero films are so much worse than last year's, and how similar all the hits from last year were: http://kotaku.com/last-years-sup…
I'm not certain I agree with a single assertion in that video. I know they're trying to be funny, but it seems like they should at least build off a truthful premise. Two of the three films from last year were the culmination of years of previous, wildly successful series. They would have been successful if they had decided to just slap a title card for "Dark Knight Rises" or "Avengers" in front of a video of a person reading YouTube comments for two hours. As for the third, I'm not sure you can call Amazing Spiderman any better than this year's superhero films. This year, on the other hand, is something of a rebuilding year; the studios are setting the stage for another crazy year down the road. Of course the ticket sales will be lower.
I also don't agree with any of the individual points in the video, but I don't really have time to go into it right now. What do you think?
And I decided to share it this way instead of just sharing the post to get a more O-Deck-centric discussion.
