I guess I'll be the first, and likely only, person to mention THE SPIRIT (2008, 14% RT) I saw it in the theater when it came out and loved the hell out of it. I saw it again recently and felt the same way. It's hyper-stylized, superhero noir and is extremely my shit. I can totally understand why people would hate it, but not me. The most recent watch was even more fun since I've had years of seeing Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, and it's funny to see them in this as villains working together. I also have a soft spot for a hero who is just this side of being a crazy cat lady. He LOOOOVES cats! Also it, for me, would make a great double-feature with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, because of the stylization, not the plot or characters.

Yes it's silly, and probably very stupid too. Do I care? Nah. I will always love it.

(I also like Speed Racer, The Book of Henry, Justice League and Batman vs Superman.)
