  1. Hmmm, check out some of the movies on the list and judge for yourself!
    Judge Dredd
    Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice
    Spider-Man 3

  2. I think every one watching and in the movie was cringing to the emo peter Parker dance scene

  3. The Martha scene has been explained to death, so I’m not going to explain it. I guess you wanted Batman to stop halfway; walk away, have Superman flip out like a child who just got their ass kicked on the playground then have Batman give Superman a letter saying sorry for kicking your ass. As for Suicide Squad. Lets see the crew just realized they’re being pawned to save Rick Flag’s gf (o and the people they’re working for were responsible for this too). This calls for everyone to have fun and joke. I hate to say it, but the DCers are right. The films must be too advanced for its retarded audience, than again this is the same group of people who pay to see the retelling of Star Wars twice so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. But since you left your cherry picking basket at home. Please allow me.

    Iron Man is joking while getting his ass kicked by Iron Monger (who’s just killed many S.H.I.E.L.D agents), almost as if he’s not fearing like his life is in danger


    Iron Man tells Whiplash how to beat him


    Tony tells the not Mandarin were he lives


    After committing collateral damage to NY the first thing on the Avengers mind is shawarma (not if anyone’s ok or anything like that)


    Captain America puts a flash drive with critical information inside a vending machine


    Do you want me to continue?

  4. But Batman only got confused as to why Superman said that Batman was letting Lex Luthor kill his mom and Batman realized that Superman is just as human as we are as he is a “Man”

  5. I think you guys have it mixed up. The BvS martha moment wasn’t Cringe Worthy, it didn’t give me the squirming feeling. It may have been a bad moment for some views but not really a cringe. And the Bar scene from Suicide Squad wasn’t cringe worthy either. Some people may have thought it was bad (not me) but not cringe worthy. I would put any of the joker scenes on this list. Same with the Dread scene. Granted I haven’t seen the movie, but that scene didn’t seem cringe worthy, it was just bad. There is a difference between just a bad scene and a cringe worthy scene. I do agree with the rest of the list though. Just not those three.
