Default Aren't Comic Book Movies For Kids Anyway?

Does anyone find themselves more and more disappointed by these films as the get older, forgetting that perhaps these films weren't designed to entertain them as much as teens in the first place?

No.

Piss-poor storytelling disappoints me, regardless of the genre, target audience, year and country of production, etc.

If you can't tell a competent story, you have no business making films for anybody.

But I'm willing to bet that the ones you've watched time and time again over the past, say, dozen years, can be counted on one hand -- if that.

V for Vendetta
Watchmen
Blade Trilogy
300
Sin City
Batman Begins
Batman: TDK

Not just for kids, and with the exception of Blade II and 300, I watch them all repeatedly. That's just off the top of my head.

There was no Blade Trilogy because Blade: Trinity never happened. Urban Legend. Mass hallucination. Swamp gas. Repeat that lie again and I'll be forced to thrash you.
