True, but Spice World has the most epic bus / bridge jump of all time.

Indeed, although if you note the news today, Britain is such a shambles that Tower Bridge doesn't even work anymore.....

Therefore, Superman III has two things going for it at least: the Clark vs Supes duel that everyone remembers, and that fucking moment which mortifies everyone.

It doesn't look like anyone's brought up that Superman III has Superman polluting a motherfucking ocean to get laid.

That's something I'm saving for the review on the next HAA. That and my stopwatch analysis of Richard Pryor's total screen time.

Probably the opportune time to ask:

Captain America: The Winter Soldier vs Blade

And having just rewatched Blade, I am NOT expecting a walkover - it's a film that has SO much going for it aside from the effects of the villain death, which is 5 seconds of a near 2 hour movie.

Shit, that's tricky.

Blade has way more style, which lately has been used as a negative in describing films. But it's style used to maximum effect. 

It's dark and moody but juuust superhero genre enough that it's fun. Snipes infuses Blade with tons of personality, even if he's often stoic and taciturn. Leaving us with great lines and moments.

Stephen Dorff's best performance..?

A film with black leads in both male and female but it doesn't contrive to the genre expectations of romance like, say, Aquaman for instance.

Top tier action.

I would say that...Blade is a better movie because of the time it came out. Comic Books movies were not only mostly not good, they were rarely that good. Having re-watched Blade a couple months back, you have to both squint and be in a bad mood to find something truly, objectively wrong with it as a film. 

Winter Solider's one of the best MCU films, and one of the best CBMs as well, but Blade's style puts it over IMO. It tells a more layered story, but Blade's simplicity gives it more efficacy.

Very well put!

I'll have to get back to you. Been meaning to see Blade for ages but it never seems to streaming when it's on my mind. I'll be re-watching Winter Soldier for a future recording soon, however...
