Hugo Weaving said in another quote that he prefers productions he has personal ties to, so that's probably one reason he didn't enjoy TFA.

Also because it sucked.

I don't know about anyone else but there are times when I want to watch a film that doesn't use too much brain power. The Avengers etc... falls into that category nicely for me.

There are also times when I fancy a film that has more depth to it.

It all depends on my mood really.

Sure, sometimes that's the case. TFA still wouldn't make that cut.

Some are alright. DC is definitely better. X-Men is better than the Avenger series. And graphic novel movies are pretty great, but graphic novels have better writing than comic books.

Spawn may be the worst tho.

I for one am eager to see Ben Affleck don the Batsuit.

Most "graphic novels" are just comic books shoved into a big collection. I'm guessing you don't read much.

Short argument:

I don't like this film and my opinion is fact.

Personally I don't care either way - I heard bad reviews for TFA and CapAm was never my cup of tea so I didn't bother to see it.

Whoa, I never said it was fact. I definitely don't ever feel that way about my opinions. I've clearly said that it's the way I feel but I accept that people like it. I know TFA rates as a good movie, I just don't see it though. Everyone else was all bent out of shape and needed an acceptable reason why I feel the way I do.

And yes, I do read graphic novels and some comic books. While they may be collections, they're generally written better because they don't suffer the need to keep things going for years so they are very different. V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Frank Miller's stuff - it's all a lot darker and less campy.

Indeed. My favorite graphic novel is probably Ronin. But I've read V for Vendetta, Watchmen, and some other graphics novels by Frank Miller.

My favorite comic series would probably be The Sandman series, by Neil Gaiman.

The Thor movies are bad.  What silly stories.  What unlikable characters.

Yeah, I've given up at this stage. "I like Xmen more than the Avenger series" is how I'll read it.

That's how you should always read it cause it's almost like entertainment and art are subjective or something. Crazy.

It was alright. Jonathan Kent's death was moronic. Clark could have easily saved him, why didn't he?

Because his dad was of the firm belief that the world wasn't ready for something like Superman and Clark was raised believing the same. Saving his dad would have revealed him to the crowd.

When people say this it feels like they did not actually watch the movie.
