When we got back to the house, my companion and I decided to watch more of the Marvel films she hasn't yet seen, so that consisted of Thor: The Dark World (which we both felt was an improvement on the first Thor) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (which we both felt was a major improvement over the first Captain America). Hopefully we will move on to Avengers: Age of Ultron today (we've seen the interceding movies in theatre).
I never liked superheroes in comic book form, and I'm not into all the techno-fantasy and straight-up fantasy inherent to them, but the majority of the superhero movies and shows from the last two decades have been quite entertaining, sometimes excellent, and sometimes emotionally relatable.
I loved the original and the subsequent Captain America. I didn't look at Marvel Comics at all, ever. I liked Superman when I was like 8. I liked that DC thought it something to do to come up with Supergirl.
I looked at 'Underground' comix in the 70s and Metal Hurlant/Heavy Metal in the 80s.
But for the most part I really dig the Marvel Universe. My favorite, which I wish Netflix would get more up to date on, is Agents of Shield. Joss Whedon rules, ok.
I don't go to movies in the theater. I could deal with the California in downtown Berkeley which isn't going to have a bunch of idiots distracting from the picture, but the last time I went to a flick was Inland Empire. Attended by me and like 5 other people that afternoon. That's over a decade ago.
