I haven't seen Captain America or the Hulk's movies, but saw everything else.
We thought the first Hulk movie with Eric Bana was "meh!", but thought the second Hulk film with Ed Norton was excellent. It's a shame Norton didn't come back for the Avengers.
I have mixed feelings about Captain America. I greatly enjoyed IronMan 1 and 2 - that probably has to do with the perfect casting of Robert Downey Jr. and other top-notch talent - and certainly enjoyed Captain America, but overall, Captain America seemed to be missing whatever it was that IronMan had (it may just have been as simple as a better overall cast).
Thor looks pretty "odd" from the previews, but by all accounts it was a good film. When we watch it, it will be with low expectations, so that's at least a positive towards us enjoying it when we do.
My favorite comic book characters growing up were Captain America, Iron Man, Fantastic Four, and the Green Lantern. I heard really, really bad things about the Green Lantern movie and am not a particular Ryan Reynolds fan (also not a fan of the actor who plays Captain America and Johnny Torch, though he has grown on me a bit after Captain America), so I've actually not gotten around to seeing that. It seems like in the modern era outside of Batman, DC Comics can't make a good superhero movie, while the only real missteps for Marvel have been the Fantastic Four films (which, I've honestly not been able to get through in their entirety), though I haven't seen the Ghost Rider films either.
