GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Was Not An Amazing Film PART 2: Marvel Fans Have No Defense, They Are Biased and Don't Like The Opinions of Others

This is not pointless nitpicking, a review, or a rant. This is just Part 2 to my previous editorial, a continuation of events and questions. Please do click for more on my editorial opinions.

Hello, this will not only be an editorial regarding behaviours of Marvel fans but also a response to the violent and aggressive comments I have currently received within my Guardians of The Galaxy article, so I decide to make a continuation ala mode Part 2. Somehow my thoughts have angered a lot of people especially many Marvel fans who can't handle my own opinion. If I have an opinion I should have a opinion and not the same opinion as you. That of which I saw was very biased towards my thoughts and unfair on many grounds. I very mad over this but will let anger subside to make an even more valid statement now. 
 
We all love comics books right? I share a certain love for many comic book characters. Some of my favourite is Batman, Black Green Lantern, and Spider-Man. Batman has a certain quality Marvel characters do not have and he is very unique in a sense even in his own universe.  Batman is a character that has always been treated with respect within films. To have a character like Batman to have a series of successful and amazing films is good on DC's own behalf. Even every Superman or Superman related film made has been perfect. That is because DC has created the perfect formula with the help of partnering with a well established film studio like Warner Bros. They always had a plan to begin with, whether or not you can agree or disagree they always have had a firm foot on their own properties and nothing was with any other studio. It was and always has been under one roof. They had it together before Marvel. Marvel on the other hand did the clumsy thing to sell off to any studio and now till today they are scrambling to get the rights back under one roof. What plan did Marvel have, none. They started their own cinematic universe but that's nothing. Blinded Marvel fans seems to think they started the entire cinematic universe idea within films when it has been done long before in films. Why take credit of an idea you didn't make? Also these films have barely been amazing at all. 
 
Marvel doesn't make films for the memories compared to DC, they make it for the money of course. That has been a vile greed and tradition within Hollywood. You can say Iron Man was a good film but it can never compare to how amazing the first Tim Burton Batman film was. You can say Captain America was a landmark but it can't compare to the first theatrical Superman film. You can say The Avengers was an all time legendary gathering of remarkable heroes but it can't compare to Man of Steel on a greater scale or Nolan's Batman films. DC films have a certain quality that last. Marvel films may be good on their own standard but that's their own standard which is in my honest opinion a very low standard but not terrible. Yes they are able to please the fans and also unfortunately often alienate the actual audience who doesn't read the comics. 
 
I have previously enjoyed films such as Thor 2, for the sense of adventure and breathtaking effects. All the side characters within Thor 2 were not pointless and helped progressed Iron Man 3 was especially the best Iron Man film in the series and a step up from the first. If your going to say Iron Man 1 was better than 3 then you need to get your eyes checked. If your going to go with Iron Man 1 just on a  wow I have never seen this character before scale then okay but on a larger scale Iron Man 3 pumped it up a notch and threw everything at you in an amazing way. The Mandarin was handled perfectly and Tony's character was just taken on this emotional ride which nearly destroyed him from the inside out. I just enjoyed those films for what they were, not as amazing as Man of Steel but for what they were they pulled it off. 
 
Knowing way back Marvel was making a Guardians of The Galaxy, I had a lot of questions since I was not familiar with the team of characters. Many fans like myself had questions. Then we were reminded of what happened with DC and The Green Lantern. Look put your hate aside, I didn't think Green Lantern was that bad. Compared to most fanboy arguments of the majority of people who dislike Iron Man 2, Green Lantern compared to that was certainly better. It had a better story and atmosphere with some amazing effects. Now the script for Green Lantern may have been clouded but it certainly knew what the story wanted to be. Where with Iron Man 2 it ended up not only with a clouded script but a confused story and a  crowd of many underused characters. Compare to Green Lantern where every character has a certain trait that you know to identify them by, it was a more character driven journey. This is what Guardians of The Galaxy exactly wanted to be much like Green Lantern, a character driven journey. 
 
There are people that like the film (Hardcore Marvel Fans) that are able to see through all the major problems and just get excited like a Justin Bieber fan at one of his concerts (it's just a simple comparison calm down). Oh yes finally the characters I have read are making into a movie "I don't care about anything else I will just enjoy it!", quote of many hardcore Marvel fans would just think. No matter what they do to change the character or how they alter the story they will be blind in a way of everything. No matter if they dumb it down a notch and just made it a G rated Disney fest it would still be enjoyed. Then there are the critics like myself who are able to give a fair opinion on films that hardcore Marvel fans can't because they are blind to the imperfections. Am both a Marvel and DC fan but I am never one sided, everything I currently have and will say is a fair opinion and the utter most truth above all else. And the real truth is, all and most of these reviews and opinions over Guardians of The Galaxy is coming from the hardcore Marvel fans. A 92% on Rotten Tomatoes is this some kind of joke? Who am I to take Rotten Tomatoes seriously anyway when they have a dumb kids movie like The Lego Movie at 96%. The first Godfather film is 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and the Lego Movie is just a few notches below, let that sink in a bit. 
 
Then there are people that compare Guardians of The Galaxy to New Hope Star Wars. Star Wars was revolutionary, it was brilliant. It wasn't a train wreck and it wasn't filled with dumb immature humour. It was more intelligent and had a much deeper story. It wasn't on a Michael Bay standard blockbuster scale like most films today, it was simple. The villains were never underused and they actually had a purpose. You can't compare Ronan to Darth Vader when Darth Vader actually managed to have better scenes that all of Ronan combined. And Darth Vader was never clumsily defeated because of some retard dancing in front of him. the end. Thanos and The Emperor comparison? At least The Emperor has done stuff compared to Thanos just sitting in his throne constantly. What is the point of using Thanos now Marvel when he just simply does nothing? Couldn't have Marvel waited until giving him a full appearance, just doesn't make sense. 
 
I could go on and on about Guardians of The Galaxy even more, but I will you people decide your own opinions as I have chosen my own opinions and in my opinion, more wisely. 
 
I will also like to give a shout out to my friend Mark for introducing me to CBM, helping me edit this article and the first part, your 100% Linkin Parktastic!

Why do you even write these if you know everyone is gonna make the comments they make? just do everyone a favor and keep your ridiculous opinions to yourself. there was no need to write a second article, we heard you the first time. thank you

Damn, the reaction from marvel faan boys blind to any flaws from marvel is hilarious.
kinghulk - 8/8/2014, 10:59 AM
dude do you not see what you are writeing?
"Marvel doesn't make films for the memories compared to DC, they make it for the money of course"
that is bullshit companies dont make films for fun they do it for money, you claim to not be biased but then in your own editorial seem to go out of your way to show how biased you are.

Oh boy here we go again....

kinghulk - 8/8/2014, 11:04 AM
if you didnt like peoples response then why make a 2nd editorial? this one seems to be just as bad as the previous 1, your only gonna get the same shit as last time.

Lmao, you made a part 2?

I'm gonna have some with this...
huckfinnisher - 8/8/2014, 11:07 AM
This is poorly written bollocks. You start the article saying batman is the best and nothing marvel has even compares then a paragraph or two later you say your not biased? You say your gonna state facts but all you did was talk about how you preffered other movies. In short, this was a moronic article from a guy who thought green lantern was good.
kinghulk - 8/8/2014, 11:09 AM
"And the real truth is, all and most of these reviews and opinions over Guardians of The Galaxy is coming from the hardcore Marvel fans."
187 fresh reviews on rotten tomatoes and you think every one of them is a hardcore marvel fan. that's like me saying that every fresh review (271 of them) of the dark knight is coming from a hardcore DC fan. it's ridiculous claim both ways.

I agree that "Marvel Fans Have No Defence, They Are Biased and Don't Like The Opinions of Others", but most of he other stuff was horseshit.

I will agree GOTG was not as great as everyone is making it out to be, but you have quite a few questionable claims in here.

Okay... I see a lot of BOLD statements being made but I am not seeing anything to back those bold statements.

WHY is the Burton Batman better than Iron Man?

HOW is the first Superman better than Captain America (this one you are probably not really wrong on but you still don't explain your reasoning)?

WHAT makes the Man of Steel better than the Avengers?

If you are going to compare, COMPARE. If not, you are just providing us with blanket statements without any evidence. Marvel movies suck? HOW do they suck? If you don't give reasoning to your opinions you just come off as a biased DC fanboy who is butt hurt that people like something you don't.

Marvel did not create the shared cinematic universe? WHAT did? Yes, there have been attempts before such as Freddy Vs. Jason, Alien Vs. Predator (those first two being now completely out of canon in their franchises, and you had stuff like Laurel and Hardy meet the Wolfman and what not. But nothing has been done on the scale that Marvel did it on and paced it to the point where people did not lose interest in it before Avengers. The fact about DC is YES, they had the characters AND the resources to do the cinematic universe thing before Marvel but what is good in having those characters and resources if you are not going to do anything about it? Yes, they had the idea for Batman Vs. Superman YEARS before the MCU, but they did not pull the trigger, Marvel did.

Also, saying Marvel is JUST doing a cash grab while WB is putting SO MUCH care into their property seems to be a bit on the assbackwards side in the way they sat on their butts throughout phase one and when Avengers made a load of money only THEN did they wake up and say "we need to do a cinematic universe NOW and catch up." They obviously ONLY cared about the money because they did not do the research in finding out what made Iron Man and the following SO popular they just saw it as "people want comic book movies, lets give it to them, not connect them or put a whole lot of effort into them ...because we have Batman" and THAT would make them their monies. But then Avengers is the 3rd highest grossing film of all time and MOS goes from a stand alone to the beginning of a shared universe? Come on, there is no coincidence there.

Also, I am going to go out on a limb there and say that since this past release had a rise in FEMALE viewers and since the Marvel movies have been making a lot of bank ...this goes beyond Hardcore Marvel fans. And that is because the Marvel films, love them or hate them, has a broader appeal than post-Nolan DC films: WOMEN AND CHILDREN. The Nolan trilogy was great but it was definitely on the darker more mature side and would not always be pleasing to children as much as the colorful Marvel universe on screen. So unless you are trying to tell me that the general audiences are all just biased Marvel fanboys ...this goes beyond that point of a VOCAL MINORITY. The proof is in the numbers.

And finally, if you actually tried to back up WHY GOTG and Marvel was so bad instead of saying that DC was better (which you don't give reasoning for either)then this would be an article I would be able to take a little more seriously than just a guy throwing a fit because the rest of the world doesn't see things the way you do; LIKE things you do. And I am not saying you have no right to dislike something everyone else loves or you do not have a right to your opinion. BACK UP YOUR OPINION WITH FACTS AND SPECULATION IF YOU ARE GOING TO WRITE AN ARTICLE ABOUT IT!
huckfinnisher - 8/8/2014, 11:23 AM
Really though you understand that movies on rotten tomatoes are not ranked by each other right? Godfather being a few notches above lego movie doesnt mean people said "lego movie is as good as the godfather" they rank the movies by thier average score from reviewers, so the two have nothing to do with each other. They are judged on different merits, doesnt mean Lego movie was as intelligently written or had as many complex characters just means that people who saw it liked it. It's ok to have opinions, I despise Nolan's batman, but its because Nolan took too many liberties with the characters, not because i mad its score on rotten tomatoes is close to another movie from a different genre entirely. As for the comedy, its present in the comics, so if you really enjoyed the comics you should at least be able to appreciate it as a more light hearted film instead of a broodfest.
sKeemAn - 8/8/2014, 11:23 AM
This editorial is silly. You contradict your own statements a few times over. This sounds more like a "I like WB/DC more than Marvel".
kinghulk - 8/8/2014, 11:27 AM

This has to be a joke. He said every superman film has been near perfect... That's including: MOS, Superman Returns, Superman 3 and 4?..... Also if you put your opinion out there, people will disagree. That happens in every theater. So don't whine bout it
Odin - 8/8/2014, 11:59 AM
So if you liked GOTG that makes you automatically a MARVEL fanboy, no matter how hyped you are for Batman v Superman?
Odin - 8/8/2014, 12:03 PM
Also; Superman 3, Superman 4 and Superman returns are all perfect films?

Seriously?
GinjaNinja - 8/8/2014, 12:05 PM
your statements at the start about batman are literally the most biased statements i've ever heard. Remember his first article where he said he had no bias?
Zeek - 8/8/2014, 12:07 PM
Article of lies.

There are no Linkin Park fans and you clearly have no friends.
