All these silly Star Wars & Superhero movies just keep replaying these same plot lines over & over with different characters, but somehow they seem to drag each tale out an extra 30 minutes. By the end you're cheering for the villain because you just want it to be over. Why are they still making Jurassic Park movies? They've done all the real dinosaurs, so now they're having to invent new ones. Seems easier to create a new monster than it is to create a good story.

Thank you so much for saying this!!!  Not many people agree with me about SW and superhero movies being "silly."  And yes on the Jurassic movies - Jeff Goldblum is old and we don't care.  :)

BTW, here's the link to my IMDb reviews.  You might agree with some of them.  :)  https://www.imdb.com/user/ur89518905/reviews

As a superhero fan, I could not agree more with you. One of the better aspects of the superhero genre is to see the characters (heroes, villains, and anything in between) in relative moments of peace, and exploring who they are behind the masks and the uniforms.  What do they care about? What dreams inspire them, what traumas haunt them, how they interact with each other and the world at large, etc. 

Most of these films go straight for action scenes, battles, and explosions. The dialogue is forgettable, and the characters lack depth. Why should we care about these people?

Thanks for saying that, lol!  Some people think I must just "hate superheros" because I'm not usually into their movies.  But this isn't necessarily true - heroes are awesome if the movie is simply made right!!!  Two superhero films I do like are Justice League, Spider-Man 3 (the one with Tobey Maguire) and Infinity War was okay.  All three of those films had great action, but took breaks to explore character stories - and not the slow, boring ones.  Real, genuine ones that made you root for the hero more.  Studios, please make more like Spider-Man 3.  :)

Just once I'd like to see the Villain win in a Superhero movie! Once!
In this Politically Correct world where everybody is a winner! What gives.

I have no *&^%$(*&^ Idea! It just looked funny.
I guess a cucumber could be a villain to Mr. Potato Head!
Nice thing for the Cucumber. No matter where your aiming at Mr Potato Head, you get all head and nothing but head! LOL
