Scarlet Spider for me.

I jumped in right in the middle of things with no info on the series and I honestly didn't expect to really like Kaine.

He quickly turned out to be one of my favorite comic characters and Scarlet Spider is probably one of my favorite Marvel series right now.

How amazing The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 turned out to be. I knew it would be fantastic but man, it was exceptional.

Dredd was also a pleasant surprise. I know it didn't hit it's goal for a sequel but they have to do at least one, if not two more. Karl Urban owned the role.

Once Upon A Time surpassed its legendary first season by making one of the greatest half seasons of any television show ever.

That OP became staff. ;)

Indeed, even for non-fans, the final battle is worth seeing. It really "gets" you.

The one in BD2 will give you so many emotions, first you're shocked, blown away, then surprised, etc.

He's a cool character, though the way other characters treated him in BD2 was awful. I felt bad for him. In the fight they showcase him in a way.

Sad. He was crushing on Bella for the whole series. I hope she's not treating him like sh*t.

I was actually a bit disappointed with the scene. Carl killing a zombified Shane isn't nearly as powerful as Carl being forced to headshot a human Shane.

Without a doubt "The Paperman" short before Wreck It Ralp. Went in not knowing about it at all and came out mind-blown.

You have a point because Shane was unarmed when he zombified.

Well Wreck it Ralp was pretty good, i think it would suck amazingly, but it was as underrated as much as Toy Story 3, Ratattouille and Wall-E are overrated.

You dare to speak ill of Toy Story 3 or Wall-E?!

But yes, Wreck-It Ralph was awesome.

Wreck It Ralph was awesome. Toy Story 3 was also awesome. Wall-E was not in either of their leagues as far as I am concerned.

This may hurt my man cred, but the Papermanaforced me connect with a well of emotion I didn't even know I had anymore lol.

Not so manye people notice one thing, but they fixed many problems that the comic has, like Batman being too damn Frank Miller Avatar.
