Favorite Comic Movies
August 11, 2009 7 Comments
In my ramp-up to Champions Beta, I’ve been reading their forums a good amount, and one of the threads was a listing of everyone’s favorite Super-hero/Comic Book movie. Obviously, it’s a loosely defined conversation that went all over the place, but it got me thinking of some of the GREAT comic-book type movies we’ve had in the last 10 years or so.
In no particular order, these are the ones that came to mind when I sat down to think about them:
- X-Men 1 & 2
- Iron Man
- V for Vendetta
- Dark Knight
- Hell Boy
- Sin City
- Spiderman 2 (more-so than 1)
- Punisher (2004)
- Incredible Hulk (2008)
- Push (was actually really good)
That’s a list that came to my mind, but it also made me think of all the god-awful bad ones that have been made.
Also in no particular order:
- Ultraviolet (why weren’t you more like Equilibrium!?)
- Spiderman 3 (maybe not terrible, but still bad)
- Mystery Men (some love it, but I hated it)
- Ghost Rider
- X-Men 3 (same as Spider 3)
- League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (the comic was so damn good too)
- Spawn (visually impressive, but just not good)
- Batman 3 & 4 (once Tim Burton left, they tanked)
- Wanted – I thought was decent overall, Jolie was hot, and James McAvoy did well, but they jumped the shark too often
What do you think? Do you have any favorites? Any you lothe? Did I totally miss the mark on some of these?I’d be interested to hear what you guys have to say.
Edit: I’m a moron, and apparently type “Watchmen” instead of “Wanted” for #11 on the bad list.
