I like Rise of the Silver Surfer too. Green Lantern is the worst I've seen.

everything i've ever heard suggests Spider Man 2 > Spider Man. especially the initial buzz which was "greatest comic book movie ever" (before Dark Knight came out). either way, i think the first Spideys and Dark Knight are at least top 5 of 2000s. Tim Burton's Batman movies and the old Superman movies are important as well.


i'll come up with a criteria later. but i think we have some freedom with a list in terms of subjectivity. similar to the Looney Tunes list that i need to get back to. something where the forum members can have more of an editorial voice in establishing the list (closer to how a publication would do it), rather than some all-encompassing historical list. if that makes sense. the criteria would still need to be clear and established, but what goes in to the criteria i think can be a little different than most of our lists here.

here was the note i made for the Looney Tunes list, for reference:

Quote:
note: We picked the "ordered list of 100" structure because, firstly, its familiar, and secondly, its extremely easy to navigate. There is NO attempt to say "this one is objectively better the that one" nor is there an attempt to say "this one is historically more significant than that one". There are plenty of lists that serve that function. While we haven't designed this to be a direct alternative to those lists, we have decided to approach it from a far more subjective and personal standpoint. That is: the handful of us who are actively commenting have and will continue to argue the artistic merit (with some respect towards innovation and influence, but primarily on quality of storytelling, character, animation, etc) of the shorts in order to provide an easy guide for interested beginners (or returners) looking to immerse themselves in one of the greatest collections of stories in recent memory. No more and no less than that.


something like that^

I'd say Batman Begins should be in the top ten, as reboot directors constantly use it as the basis for the direction they're going to take with a property.

Ghost Rider is by far the worst imo... Fantastic Four and Catwoman were terrible too, though. Haven't seen Daredevil or Green Lanter (looks abolutely terrible)

What about The Green Hornet? loved that one.

Aye. Road to Perdition should be quite high up there if we include graphic novels too. I love that film.

i think the spirit of the list should be superhero related. i realize not all comic books or graphic novels are superheroes, but its just weird to see a list with like 95% superheroes and then American Splendor and Road to Perdition thrown in.
