Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters today, which means it’s a day to celebrate the achievements of Marvel Studios. We’re in the middle of a comic book storytelling renaissance, folks, and Marvel is at the head of it. The way they have weaved all these characters and movies together into one huge story is truly remarkable. It’s something we talk about every day, but step back a second and look really think about it. It’s movie history.
As the case with most things, history isn’t without its detractors, such as the team at CinemaSins. Once again they’ve gone ahead and nitpicked their way to millions of YouTube views with their patented “Everything Wrong With” series. Two of the latest videos, not coincidentally released close to The Winter Soldier, are Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor: The Dark World. Watch “Everything Wrong With Thor The Dark World” and “Everything Wrong With Captain America: The First Avenger” below. Read More »

John Connor is just one boy, but keeping him safe was awfully expensive. The CinemaSins team put on James Cameron‘s 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgement Day and attempted to figure out exactly how much all the damage caused in the film would have cost the city of Los Angeles and everywhere else. Watch the video below for an estimate of the cost of cleaning up the destruction Arnold Schwarzenegger and Robert Patrick left in their wake. Read More »

“A video of everything wrong with Iron Man 2? What is it, the whole movie?” That was what first popped into my head when I saw that the CinemaSins team was back to their old tricks, ripping apart some of pop culture’s biggest movies. In honor of this week’s release of Iron Man 3, they’ve gone ahead and dissected the film most people consider the worst of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man 2, in six minutes or less.
Jon Favreau‘s second Iron Man film has been a huge point of contention since its release in 2010. Many people love its fun irreverence and the way it sets up the next few Marvel movies for The Avengers. But others think it’s a mine field of plot holes, weak narrative connections and questionable character motivations, partially because of its production during the writer’s strike.
Which side do you fall on? Check out the video and discuss below. Read More »
Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight is a shining example of a what a comic book movie can be. It’s dark and exciting, and the performances are as rich as the story. In fact, the film is so well-regarded some fans put it on an unattainable pedestal and vehemently attack anyone who dare say anything negative about Nolan’s second entry in his Batman trilogy.
But the film has some problems. A plot hole here, questionable motivation there. While most people tend to forgive those for the sake of pure, well-made entertainment, the CinemaSins team is not among those people. They’ve done the unthinkable, and created a sure-to-be controversial video calling out everything wrong with The Dark Knight in four minutes or less. Read More »
In 2012, nitpicking movies became the latest online craze. Everyone got wrapped up in it. Some may blame the movies, but I blame fans with video editing skills who make videos like the ones below.
Three of the year’s most discussed movies – Rian Johnson‘s Looper, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises – are the latest to get “Everything Wrong With In 3-4 Minute” videos from CinemaSins. And while the latter two are mostly warranted, the former is such a stretch, even the director spoke out about it. Check it out below. Read More »
