Here we go again

TASM, for me.
Could have been SO MUCH BETTER, but it was a terribly wasted opportunity.
Christuffer - 12/20/2012, 7:07 AM
I haven't seen all of the above listed movies, therefore I cannot vote. I have a feeling that it won't matter though, because none of the other ones disappointed me.
RorMachine - 12/20/2012, 7:07 AM
LEVITIKUZ, the entire editing team are working on these end of year polls. If you don't like em, don't vote or comment..seems pretty simple to me?
Ranger14 - 12/20/2012, 7:08 AM
I was expecting GR2 to be bad, so I wasn't that disappointed in it. TDKR and TASM were almost a toss-up for me. The nod goes to TDKR because I went to see an epic Batman conclusion and somehow Batman was missing for most of the film.
PaulRom - 12/20/2012, 7:08 AM
I enjoyed the movie, but I gotta say that Amazing Spider-Man didn't live up to my incredibly high expectations.
LucasMend - 12/20/2012, 7:09 AM
TASM of course, it was so unnecessary and awful. It was a 1/5 for me.
Jollem - 12/20/2012, 7:09 AM
spirit of vengeance was not disappointing to me because i knew what to expect; a fun, crazy ride with some great action and camera work. ghost rider looked boss

i'm a long time spider-fan and i loved tasm

tdkr closed up a great trilogy

haven't seen dredd. they will get my money at some point

the avengers wasn't disappointing, unless i think about this in live-action...



disappointed? no, not at all. 2012 rocked my socks off as far as cbms go
Ranger14 - 12/20/2012, 7:10 AM
Writing the polls isn't really the issue. It's obviously a flawed poll system, based on what we witnessed yesterday, so why keep putting out polls that don't reflect any semblance of an accurate vote?
Shadowelfz - 12/20/2012, 7:11 AM
I would have to say TDKR.

I was expecting Ghost Rider to be bad (it still had Cage after all) and I didn't think much of Spiderman before seeing it (and after for that matter.) I have been a huge fan of the Batman series since Begins and was expecting another perfect film from Nolan. Instead I got to see a really, really, really good one.
marvel72 - 12/20/2012, 7:11 AM
the dark knight rises

1st the dark knight rises(the first two are very good movies the third it had its moments but it wasn't all that.sorry i really can't see the appeal of this movie,i've seen it twice now & i wouldn't care if i saw it again.)

2nd the amazing spider-man(another disappointing movie had its moments but it could of been better)

3rd ghost rider spirit of vengeance(wasn't really disappointed,i never expected much in the first place.)

the avengers & dredd both had their fare share of flaws but for me they were the two best comic book movies of the year.
RorMachine - 12/20/2012, 7:13 AM
Most people just vote once, and most polls are accurate, From time to time some incredibly sad individuals will vote more frequently, but that's always taken into account and the results are not posted afterwards.
StrangerX - 12/20/2012, 7:15 AM
TASM was the most disappointing.
LEEE777 - 12/20/2012, 7:15 AM
I know ROBOCOP Remake is gonna make 2013! :P

DREDD was quite enjoyable, being the low budget it had!

AVENGERS = Awesome!

New Spidey wasn't bad, Rises was a let down, especially last 5 to 10 minutes of it...

GR no comment :)
Jollem - 12/20/2012, 7:21 AM
avengers is about on par with any one of the dark knight films :)
DaenerysTargaryen - 12/20/2012, 7:22 AM
I voted TASM. That movie bored the heck out of me
Greengo - 12/20/2012, 7:30 AM
GoILL... I think there is something wrong with that cat
GoILL - 12/20/2012, 7:30 AM
@tea

That some funny shit.
DrHorrible - 12/20/2012, 7:50 AM
The Dark Knight Rises, no doubt about it. Hell, I had medium/low expectations and those weren't even met. Such a massive disappointment and overall fail, which pains me to no end, being a Batman fan.

It should have been called "The Dark Knight Crashes, Burns, Gives Up and Goes To A Paris Cafe."

It may be a bit too long, but it would've been better fit, that's for sure.
Godzillafart - 12/20/2012, 7:51 AM
TDKR for me. Nolan's Bat films are so disappointing because aspects of them are so fantastic. Incredible acting, great cinematography, cool gadgets and special effects.

That said, plot holes are just one of the problems of Nolan's bad writing.

Did anybody out there feel any connection at all to any of the characters? Even in TDK, the best in the trilogy, they burn off Harvey's face and kill Rachel. I UNDERSTAND that this is a tragic moment, but did I feel anything? No.

The Nolan boys don't know how to write emotionally relatable characters. The only movie where they did, The Prestige, was based on a novel, so they had a strong outline to start with.
Jollem - 12/20/2012, 7:51 AM
@teabag - tdkr definitely didn't have the amount of boom, boom, boom and explosions of the avengers or a michael bay flick :)
Godzillafart - 12/20/2012, 7:51 AM
@Tea: Fantastic chart.
DrHorrible - 12/20/2012, 7:53 AM
@teabag I think that "Saving Gotham" sliver should be smaller. It wasn't even him that saved Gotham. It was the floating scrap heap known as The Bat. LOL.

Hell, The Bat was more of a hero than Bats in the movie. At least it went out with a bang instead of faking it and running to Paris. ;)
Jollem - 12/20/2012, 8:01 AM
@DrHorrible - that's like saying the nuke was the hero of the avengers movie :)

batman was responsible for getting the nuke out of the city as much as rdjr. was responsible for blowing up what controlled the technology-controlled robot/alien hybrids
GhostZillaRider - 12/20/2012, 8:02 AM
Ghost Rider. Definitely Ghost Rider. Mostly because I'm a huge GR fan, and I was sorely pissed that he still got sh!t on by Sony. All the hype had my expectations higher, even though Nic Cage was still in the movie.

TASM wasn't a disappointment for me because I didn't have very high expectations, and Andrew Garfield's Spidey/Peter parker were SO much better (execution wise) than Tobey's. (Enough so that I didn't really notice the sub-par costume) Plus, TASM did a much better job at executing the fight scenes and web swinging in true Spidey fashion than the Raimi trilogy. (Watch it again. There were so many iconic poses and classic Spidey fight moves and tricks.) It might not have been a solid film, but Spider-Man was more like what I was expecting from the first three. I'm personally happy with TASM.
ISleepNow - 12/20/2012, 8:03 AM
Knew Ghost Rider would be garbage
Had no expectation for TASM
TDKR could've been great but wasn't. Therefore..

RorMachine - 12/20/2012, 8:08 AM
I connected just fine with the characters in TDKR, even got a little emotional at times!:)

TASM was good, but I'd have to call it the most disappointing on the list. I mean nobody (sane) expected anything from Ghost Rider 2 anyway
thalidomide - 12/20/2012, 8:10 AM
TASM for me.
Ranger14 - 12/20/2012, 8:10 AM
Lee!!!!!! Holy crap! Long time no see! I miss seeing you here and the good ol' days where we had people who could disagree and still respect each other. :-D

"Most people just vote once, and most polls are accurate, From time to time some incredibly sad individuals will vote more frequently, but that's always taken into account and the results are not posted afterwards."

Yeah...right. I own some ocean front property here in Arizona too. lol I guess that means the results of yesterday's poll will not be posted? ;-) It's not just about people voting more frequently, its also about the system being easily and readily hacked to reflect 100's...and in the case of yesterday...1,000's of votes.
Jollem - 12/20/2012, 8:11 AM
@teabag - or an awkward fashion sense :)
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 12/20/2012, 8:17 AM
If tdkr wins, does this mean nolanites rigged it to?

:P
unknownfacts - 12/20/2012, 8:19 AM
I would say Dark Knight Rises but it made a billion dollars which is sad because it took four super powered heroes to make what one non powered hero did.
Bandido - 12/20/2012, 8:27 AM
@Goill: that first pic....[frick]ing hilarious

Hmm idk bout this one I really enjoyed avengers, spidey, and TDKR

I haven't seen dredd and I don't wanna tear my eyes out (reason I haven't watched GR)

Skip! :p
Spideyguy94 - 12/20/2012, 8:27 AM
TDKR for me. It's a good movie but its no where near as good as the first one, and it is so easy to pick apart.

I actually thought TASM was good, while it is nothing special unique or new, I really loved the characters. But I'm the type of person who can look past a mediocre plot if I really enjoy the characters. Perfect example of this is Peter David's hulk run while the plots aren't much to be desired, the character stuff is fantastic.
DrHorrible - 12/20/2012, 8:28 AM
@Jollem That literally made no sense seeing as The Bat carried its nuke out, just like IRON MAN carried his nuke out.

In turn, Iron Man is the hero, unlike Baleman who likes to run away with random women and lets his father figure think him dead.

So...



Good day. :)
GhostZillaRider - 12/20/2012, 8:33 AM
@Ror: I actually did expect more from Ghost Rider, and I'm sane. I expected more because I know it could be given, and considering the great lengths the filmmakers went to to film certain scenes (pulled behind a motorcycle on skates whilst holding a camera) I felt that they could have, make that SHOULD have, delivered something better.
What makes me insane is trying to figure out how anyone could put that much time and effort into a movie, and still wind up with a flaming bag of dog sh!t.
Jollem - 12/20/2012, 8:42 AM
@DrHorrible - but...batman was the cause of why the nuke didn't explode gotham city. just like robert downey juniorman was the cause of why the nuke didn't explode new york

both of their actions "saved the day", as it were

batman beat down bane, chased down talia and the bomb, and got the bomb out of the city

yes, with the use of the bat. but would you give credit of a home run to a baseball player or the bat? (see what i did there?)
GhostZillaRider - 12/20/2012, 8:45 AM
@Tea: That picture is out of control funny. That poor baby has a look on his face like, "What the f*** is wrong with these people?", or maybe, "I know I said I wanted a tit, but this is ridiculous!!!"

:p
GhostZillaRider - 12/20/2012, 8:47 AM
@Tea: Could you get that poor child some female boobies, please?
SageMode - 12/20/2012, 8:48 AM
Did anybody really think GR:SOV was gonna be a good film?

Anyhow, my vote goes to TDKR.
