Dark Shadows' Film Review
For those of you, like myself, who aren't familiar with the television series 'Dark Shadows' which ran from 1966-1971, here are the film's cliff notes...
The year...1750 (give or take)
A wealthy young man named Barnabus Collins (Johnny Depp) gets it on with his maid, Angelique (Eva Green) who just happens to be a witch...She feels the love...He...not so much. Witch gets pissed...Turns Barnabus into a vampire, locks him in a coffin, which she then buries deep in the ground.

Superhero movies have always been a big attraction with the audience for they always bring plenty of action and a great story to tell and a superhero that beats up the villains. Hollywood has made many great superhero movies like the Spider-Man trilogy, The Dark Knight, the X-Men films and many more, but by far the greatest of all would have to the 2012 film titled, "The Avengers."
In most other superhero movies they will just have one superhero, but "The Avengers" is superhero film that has not one superhero, but six and of those six are Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye.
