* Fans didn't care for the alteration made in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanVsTheElite'' [[spoiler: of Superman actually depowering the Elite and going through with lobotomizing Manchester Black instead of the Elite retaining their powers and Supes only giving Black a concussion as they felt in invalidated what Superman was talking about through the whole movie.]]

*** Of course, complaining about C-3PO being built by Anakin is arguably the stupidest excuse for hating the prequels, because it does nothing to [[CharacterDerailment derail C-3PO's character.]] What people should be complaining about is how C-3PO was shunned in favor of [[ReplacementScrappy Jar Jar]]. And in addition to having no Jar Jar and yes much better writing in general, among many other things, it would have helped if C-3PO went with Anakin and started his friendship with R2-D2. C-3PO and R2-D2 have always been a lot funnier than Jar Jar, that's for sure.
*** Also, midi-chlorians may be a bad plot element that never should've been there, but it's also irritatingly over-criticized since it's not even close to the only bad plot element in the prequels. And there's no way one bad plot element that is mentioned TWICE in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' (I'm not discussing that one time in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'') has no more screen time than Darth Maul can make a movie suck without all those other bad plot elements. And it certainly can't match the damage of the plot, characters, script, directing and acting the way Jar Jar and Jake Lloyd come very close. Besides, the Force is NOT microscopic bacteria, regardless if George Lucas said so. Since there are too many bad plot elements in all three films, he forfeited his right to decide what Star Wars is, so we can just shove, for one, that forgettable plot element aside and pretend it doesn't exist instead of whining and bitching as if only that one ruined everything about while we should be criticizing practically everything altogether.

* ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' receives complaints of various kinds, from casting choices to changes in costume design, some fans have even complained about the mechanical web shooters, in spite of the fact that Spider-man's web shooters have only ever been mechanical in the comic book continuity, except for a few rare occasions in which Peter went through a power upgrade. There where also complaints about the butchery of Peter Parker's character, turning him from a bookish introvert into a skater with no friends.

* In general, any time a book or a video game is adapted to the big screen fans will cry this, [[{{Sequelphobic}} especially if said movie gets a sequel.]] Never mind that there are various tropes that will only work in books, like how much more dialogue-heavy books are than films and how books can be as long as they need to be without worrying about if the audience needs to get home within the next six hours. [[RuleofCautiousEditingJudgement And let's just not get into video game movies...]]

* ''Film/IronMan3'' received mostly positive reviews and is the second highest grossing movie in the entire {{M|arvelCinematicUniverse}}CU, but is still '''reviled''' by a number of comic fans because of the Mandarin getting a RaceLift [[spoiler: and being revealed to be a fraud with no powers]]. There exists a bit of OpinionMyopia here, with casual viewers and critics generally giving the film far better scores than comic book readers.
