I am kinda torn between Batman Begins, Spiderman 2, XMen 2, and Blade. I guess I am gonna go with Batman, though I love the other 3 just as much.

Batman Begins or Blade. Ever since some friends and I powerhoused through Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, all we do nowadays is randomly spurt out (in bad Wesley Snipes impressions, no less), "They call me Daywalker. They fear me."

Fantastic Four = lame.
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer = Galactus is giant cloud? WTF? The only way the Fantastic Four can redeem themselves (with Silver Surfer and Galactus) get shot to hell.
Ghost Rider: Other than Sam Elliott, Peter Fonda, and the fact that it was Ghost Rider, worst movie ever. I'm super serious.
Spiderman: Don't get me started.
The Incredible Hulk: Bad hero, bad movie. Another Marvel movie where one of the few redeeming qualities is Sam Elliott.
X-Men = Pretty dang good movies, I'm not going to lie.
Doctor Strange (animated): Complete crap.
Ultimate Avengers: Honestly never seen. (*runs out to buy, hoping for some Black Panther awesomeness*)
Superman: Superman is lame.

Upcoming:
Magneto: Sounds pretty cool. I wish they made more movies about supervillains (*goes into Land of Nod, dreaming of Joker, Dr. Doom, Riddler, and Lex Luthor movies*)
Iron Man: No. Just no.
Thor: See Iron Man.

I had to cast my vote for Batman Begins, but it was a very close compeition between it and Superman Returns. Seriously, like 51% Batman, 49% Superman.

That said, X-Men (1 and 2) was also great, The Punisher was entertaining, but not all that awesome.

You appear to be someone who knows the comics and cartoons quite well. Me on the other hand, have never been interested, though the movies began to interest me highly. To enjoy the movies more, I now stay clear of the comics and cartoons because I believe the movies certainly don't stay true (for ex. Spiderman 3's Venom character just didn't get the screen time and efforts he deserved). I am guessing this is why you feel the way you do about most of these films?

I can't put my finger on it, but I wasn't impressed with the new Superman movie all that much.

I hope a Batman vs Superman movies comes around someday :w00t:

One of my obsessions. Others are Trek (of course), westerns, and D&D (friends and I have rules-spouting competitions).

In some cases, yes. But the thing about comic book movies you have to realize is that you're never going to get the real thing. Comics have waaaaaaay too much continuity and backstories to get involved in in two hours. For example: Batman Begins. Fairly true, but Scarecrow was never director of Arkham (he was a professor at a university), R'as al Ghul was neither white nor British, Batman can't fly with his cape (although that bit of awesomeness I was glad to have inserted), there is no League of Shadows, and lots of other minute stuff. One of the reasons that movie was so popular with Batman fans was that it did stay relatively true (one of my biggest griefs with Marvel movies is that they screw with origins, seemingly when they don't even need to), but in the end I want a good story that highlights why I love that hero. I'm fine with R'as being British (in fact, I love Liam Neeson) as long as he's portrayed accurately (and he was). But the reasons I consider Batman (and his villains) to be awesome were still intact (Batman still scares the phlox out of people; this is his biggest weapon). Anyway, enough.

I hope a Batman vs Superman movies comes around someday :w00t:


Would be cool, considering Batman is one of the few people in the (fictional) world who can defeat Superman.

It's gotta be X2: X-men United for me. Love that movie. Spiderman 2, Spiderman 3, and Batman Begins are honourable mentions.

and D&D (friends and I have rules-spouting competitions).


Congratulations Melvin, once again you've said the nerdiest thing I've heard all day. :D

(one of my biggest griefs with Marvel movies is that they screw with origins, seemingly when they don't even need to)


Actually I kind of like it when they screw with them. For example I find Peter Parker being bit by a GMO spider more believable than a radioactive spider.

That's how little I know about the comic books, I suppose that if they wanted to follow Spiderman they'd have to make like 20 movies to fit it all in. But it does sound like your're a huge fan of Batman Begins becuase it sticks closer than the others to the comic.

Ok, that I definetly gotta see.

I head something about a Justice League movie too, but it could be extremely difficult to pull off.

It was hard to choose a favorite.
I loved Batman Begins.
But I also loved the Spiderman, Blade and Fantastic Four Movies.

*takes victory lap*

That was different. In the end, he ultimately gets bitten by a spider, so it's fine. But when you completely change it (like the Doc Strange animated movie) for no reason, it makes me wonder for what reason they made such drastic changes.

I know Dark Knight hasn't technically come out yet, but I mean, come on... :D

QFT

But actually, I'm a little worried. But I have faith in Nolan. (Hopefully) all will be well.

Long and short of it, yes.

To be fair, the only time I've actually seen it, he had to pull some cheap tricks and enlist the help of the Green Arrow, but since Infinite Crisis, Batman literally has plans to take down any hero in case they go all evil.

Yeah, this I cannot wait for. Also, my brother and I figured out the trailer for a Green Lantern movie today in our heads(*is hoping for another "nerdiest thing said" award*). It was pretty epic.

Iron Man: No. Just no.

Superman Returns, Batman Begins, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, Daredevil, the Punisher, and X3: The Last Stand are my top favorites because to me they were the most intense ones ever. Btw, I'm not a picky comic book fan though.

Superman Returns - great even it should had more action though
Superman: Brainiac Attacks - good
Superman: Doomsday - great but a little short though
Batman Begins - great
Batman & Mr. Freeze: Subzero - good
Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker - great
Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman - good
Spider-Man - very good
Spider-Man 2 - great
Spider-Man 3 - great
TMNT - good
Daredevil - great
Elektra - very good
The Punisher - great
Ghost Rider - very good
X-Men - good
X2: X-Men United - very good
X3: The Last Stand - great
Fantastic Four - good
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - great
Blade - good
Blade II - good
Blade Trilogy - good
The Hulk - alright but mostly boring though

Actually there are a lot more comic book films are coming out that you didn't mention.

The Dark Knight (July 18th, 2008)
Iron Man (May 2th, 2008)
The Incredible Hulk (remake, June 13th, 2008)
Spider-Man 4 (2010)
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
The Punisher: War Zone (2008)
Magneto (2009)
Ant Man
Justice League of America (2009, they are going to announce the cast next week and George Miller is directing it and Kieran Mulroney and Michelle Mulroney wrote the script.)
Justice League: The New Frontier (Animated)
Teen Titans (2009)
The Man of Steel (Superman Returns Sequel - 2009, possibly some time after the JLA movie is released)
Wonder Woman (2009)
The Flash
Green Lantern (2010)
The Avengers (maybe)
I didn't hear anything about a Thor movie though.

I'm really looking forward seeing the Dark Knight this July. I have seen an updated picture of Heath Ledger's Joker and he really looks awesome and much better than the first picture of him that I saw a while back and I saw the Dark Knight teaser trailer and I heard the Joker's voice on there and I love it and it almost sounds like Jack Nicholson's Joker (my favorite live action Joker)!!! I saw the Iron Man trailer it looks pretty good.

Here is the latest picture of the Joker that I saw.

Right, forgot about the new Punisher movie. Oh, and JLA, Dark Knight, and Green Lantern movies: DUH! Those are automatically going to be fantastic.

Oh, and on the subject of the Joker, I'm actually a little worried about that. We're getting another Batman '89 glued-on Joker grin; he is actually constantly grinning, and has various sad clown faces. It's not like he can't stop.

Didn't know they were remaking a Hulk movie. Still not going to see it. And yes, I did miss the Wolverine movie and assorted DC heroes :(

And Hellboy 2 is coming out next year also.

I was hoping for a Daredevil 2 to see Michael Clarke Duncan return as the Kingpin and give Daredevil the fight of the century this time, but I guess it won't happen since the first film pretty much sucked.

Batman Begins hands down. A perfect example of what a "reimaging" can be that does NOT take away from predecesors, that updates "the look" without insulting past fans while still interesting to newbies. AND it's technically a pre-quell that did NOT suck! Take note Hollywood!
