Trust Jarry on this one - you want to rent 'Ted' for all the Flash Gordon greatness.
Hey.. the Condorman trailer gave me a massive childhood flashback. I love about 1:00 into the clip the crowd is BARELY acknowledging the suitcase beating taking place in front of them.
Only thing with Condorman (as far as a nominee) - it was a deliberate goof on superhero and spy movies. so its kinda hard to knock them.
I think there's a difference between a superhero comedy and a superhero parody. I wouldn't even call Condorman a "comedy," really, since it's more of a family action flick and the action scenes are played straight. It's about a comic book fan/writer trying to be a superhero, yes, but so's KickAss, and that's definitely not a parody. This isn't Scary Movie territory here.
