I am glad other people are saying the same

I thought i was going mad being the only one who could see this film was just an average popcorn flick not some great masterpiece. (i have noticed more people saying its not that great though, and from looking at BO and reviews i think it did its best domestically).
For me its the biggest let down of the summer and one of the most overrated films of the last few years at least.
As for what i was anticipating - quite a few, Avengers, Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises, Brave, Skyfall.
Having since watched Prometheus again i think my initial liking of it may have had a lot to do with the avengers being such a let down for me. When i watched it again it was ok but nothing great, lol.
The movie of my very limited cinema experience this year has been The Dark Knight Rises (yeah it has faults but its amazing nevertheless and lived up to expectations) though i am looking forward to Brave, Skyfall and obviously The Hobbit.
clearly our tastes in movies are very different

Although I did look forward to "The Avengers" (Joss Whedon is my master) and will see "The Bourne Legacy." But I was most eager to see "A Dangerous Method," "The Pirates! A Band of Misfits" ("The Pirates! An Adventure with Scientists!" in GB), "Moonrise Kingdom," and "Brave." I'm looking forward to "Looper" and the film version of the musical "Les Miserables."

liked it MORE than I thought I would. I was expecting formulaic 'super-hero schlock' and while there was some of that, to be sure, there was smarter dialogue than I was expecting and while the plot was tired and worn it had much better characters so I was pleasantly surprised.
I only went to see Spiderman once but I thought it was great and better than I expected after seeing the trailer. Avengers was just perfect all around and definitely one of those movies you have to go to a couple of times just because it's so awesome.
