The first half of Spider-Man is like...perfection. I love those origin sequences. But then Green Goblin comes along and just fucks up the flow.

People are sleeping on Superman 3!!!!

Nor do I.

I never saw The Crow (though I do hold a grudge against it for being responsible for Hot Topic stores and mall goths worldwide) But once you get into that territory you gotta start considering stuff like The Matrix and what not. It's a slippery slope. But in my mind Unbreakable still fits pretty nicely into the category.

>Incredible was cute but can't compete.

I beg to differ. But do you.
