First of all, whoever posts on this topic, write if you thought this movie was good or bad. I think that it is the best movie of the summer. Period. What I have a hard time trying to get is why most(75%) of the movie critics out there did not like the movie. The casting/characters are top-notch, the battles are spectacular, and the story is well written, with little to no confusion. I can understand that a few people would have trouble with names, but that's about it. Overall, I say to all, go see this awesome movie. Now. don't think of all the mindless " 1 1/2 stars out of 4," or, "C" ratings. See it, love it.
As for the competition, nothing compares. Sure, Spiderman has the big actors, but the story is so predictable(scientist turns evil, good guy beats up on bad guy, yadda yadda). and yeah, Anchorman will be funny, but it has a lame story.
