I've never seen an entertaining CGI fight, ever.
Zod, Ursa, Non vs. Superman in Superman II (1980), is by far the best fight I've ever seen in a superhero movie.

They were OK about 15 years ago when they only had them on occasionally. Now it's just superhero crap and lousy remakes.

The only superhero tv series I've ever seen is "Smallville" and "Superman And Lois".
But I just recently got "Lois & Clark" so I'll watch that too.
I've never seen any of the other superhero shows.

Not a movie, but did you ever watch the Daredevil show on Netflix? It had a couple of single-take fight scenes that were amazing. Here's an article about the one from the final season:

I haven't seen that, but its worth watching by the sounds of it.
It seems to have the best reviews of all the marvel shows, and some compare it to Nolan's Dark Knight, which I liked.

Probably? I’ve never been into superheroes, even as a kid. The whole comic book thing just never appealed to me.

But then again, I don’t particularly care what movies the studios put out. It doesn’t bother me, it just narrows what movies I care to see.

I dont know how younger people feel, but I do not have any desire to see many of the new movies, including the superhero ones. I wish they would go back to some good old romantic comedies.

Romantic Comedy is the only genre I never want to see.
But I gave a film 10/10 that had romance, not comedy though, its called Closer (2004).
And rare for me to give 10/10, rated 681 films and only given 10/10 to 6 of them.

As a long-time comic book fan whose childhood was spent escaping a not-so-great life by immersing myself into the awesome fantasy worlds of DC and Marvel, I cannot get enough of this. It is literally the best time to be a comic book fan. Nowadays, it is not just the "big guns" (Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Spider-man, et al.) who get movies and TV shows: it's also tons of other less heralded characters and tales, and I LOVE IT.

You're describing high-budget action blockbusters.

Want to see something else? Stop going to high-budget blockbusters.

Hollywood puts out around 500 films a year. A fairly small percentage of them are what you're describing. It's not Hollywood's fault you're attending the wrong films.
