Question...

Why isn't this class called, "Why DC is Destroying America"?

Don't you hate more DC films than Marvel?

Kashmir has it right. Besides, for me to say DC is destroying America, I would have to take it seriously. To discuss DC's impact on pop culture requires believing that it has had an impact in the first place.
I hope you're not serious about that last part...

Danny, ignore him.  He's just mad because he doesn't know a thing about those super-secretive DC theories you have.

I'm talking about the DCEU. Not The Dark Knight. Not their comics. Not Superman as a character. The only thing of relevance in this discussion about Marvel is the movies they are currently making, so the same applies to DC. And if you really think that Suicide Squad or The-Film-That-Must-Not-Be-Named will be remembered fondly-- or remembered at all-- after a few years have passed, buddy, I got some news for you.

Also, is anyone reading my mini-essays? Be honest, guys.

The Avengers making its way to the AFI Top 100 is highly unlikely. People's taste changes as time goes by and experienced new things or something else becomes popular. Not to say that the critics of the AFI Top 100 are absolute geniuses, for instance, Michael Goi, one of these highly regarded critics; directed Megan is Missing, one of the most pretentious, and frankly, worst films I've ever had the displeasure of seeing.

And regarding the acting, yeah. Age of Ultron was pretty unremarkable in that department, along with many others which I will not bother covering since this dead horse is nothing more than beef jerky after all that beating.

Only time will tell. For now, let's just say I have very little hope.

Good to know that I'm not just going crazy here.

So why is Deadpool being discussed alongside the MCU films when Deadpool doesn't even take place in the same universe?

I've been reading everything! I was going to respond to something about Deadpool but I forgot. Basically I was gonna defend the movie for having some memorable meta humor that didn't fall on the "Shit, did I leave the stove on" spectrum. Maybe something else too but the format is too fucky for me to post anything more right now.

Thanks for reading. Also, Cutler graciously allowed me to edit his comment (while maintaining its comedic integrity), so feel free to post.

Haha, thanks to both you and Cutler for that. Past me giving Deadpool some credit, I was just going to say that while I agree that Marvel is not even close to the pinnacle of acting, it's also not horrible. I think the problem is more that many of the characters just don't have much personality. Shockingly, the best performance is given by Robert Downey Jr. whose character actually has personality. No matter how much Marvel is recycling their act now, I'll still always love the first Iron Man. Also, action films generally tend not to have as many character moments so it's not even completely the writers' fault. They're pretty much forced into writing a shit load of action in these movies, that's what sells the tickets after all.
