    2. Suicide Squad worse than Green Lantern, Green Hornet, Iron Man 2, Daredevil, Hancock, Watnted, and Elektra?....
    Well, it is a fucking terrible movie.

    3. The Dark Knight under Powerpuff Girls and the Mask?
    Every time I watch The Dark Knight I like it less and less. The action scenes are all a mess. Heath Ledger still makes it a worthy watch, though.

    The Dark Knight is a bit of a bore, and the third act is a total mess.

    Correction: The finale is a bit of a mess but most of the third act is fine.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    The way you stated this I read the entire article waiting for the "BUT...."

    Its pretty spot on. Although I will add to its bit about the action scenes being "general 90s action", I think it's a step above because of Raimis inventiveness with his cartoony nature. Weird blue screens, crash zooms, flailing actors, huge fire balls...its a damn fun movie.

    The Evil Dead-9.0
    Crimewave-8.5
    Evil Dead II-9.5
    Darkman-9.0
    Army of Darkness-9.0
    The Quick and the Dead-7.5
    Spider-Man-4.0
    Spider-Man 2-9.0
    Spider-Man 3-4.0
    Oz the Great and Powerful-7.5
    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness-7.0

    Does The Evil Dead show count? I'd give that 9.5 easily. I like Raimi but sometimes he doesn't quite put a movie together like he should and I think he should have made more horror movies.

    It's a luscious mix of words and tricks
    That let us bet when you know we should fold
    On rocks I dreamt of where we'd stepped
    And of the whole mess of roads we're now on
