"X-Men Origins: Wolverine"

Previews: Up, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, District 9, Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

No, it wasn't the most original superhero movie ever, but "Wolverine" was pretty fun. As previously mentioned, by tolerance for violence is lower than it once was, and there were a few unpleasant deaths I did not welcome seeing, but it is what it is, and it wasn't as over-the-top as it could have been. 

I've heard criticism that "The Dark Knight" set the bar so high, average superhero movies can never measure up, but, frankly, I couldn't deal with watching 1001 versions of that movie. I'm OK with mostly mindless fun once in a while.
