Comic Movies in general, your top three so far?

Post by TheMyth on Sat May 10, 2008 7:41 am

what so far have been your top three comic book movies.

for me

1. Iron Man
2. Batman Begins
3. X-men 2


Not sure if it's because iron man is the most recent, but it felt the most true to the source, I'm hoping th Dark Knight will top this list very soon though. (fingers crossed for incredible hulk too)

As per usual way too hard to pick three......
Couldn't find fault with Sin City
Still hard to beat seeing Spidey realistically swinging between buildings in the first one then a toss up between
Punisher,Ironman (thanks for proving Mecha movies will now work), Hellboy & V for Vendetta
Batman begins was great too but I'm a Marvel not DC so can't get in on principle
so yeah top 2 really with 7 runners up......sorry.....

really it's tough to do a top 3, maybe a top 10. some are close so it's hard to put some above others.

it's also hard really to judge what is good:
-popcorn movie
-true to souce material
-engaging characters

daredevil was somewhat close to the comics but it was a good popcorn movie.
X-men 3 had depth and a good theme but it was all over the place.
Hulk had a great psychological aspect but deviated from the comics.
300 was a new standard in visual story telling but i could only really watch it once.

but the rule of thumb is if it's entertaining for it's length it's good. so i guess i'd measure them in entertainment.

1.iron man
2.batman begins
3.sin city

gee, sin city completely slipped my mind, for that matter so did 300.

The trailer for the spirit looks promising too, even though it seems a little too sin city eske.

I loved the Daredevil directors cut, Spiderman and iron man, Blade etc, but my three just have that weight that elevates them above popcorn status while remaining true to their pulp origins.

1. Superman
2. Batman begins
3. X-2

Great film. No idea how it worked as a comic...

Probably the only comic-to-movie film that was nominated for an Oscar for best writing too!

No love for Ghost World or American Splendor? Or my good friend, Fritz the Cat?



For me, I'm going to give Iron Man the best super-hero film.
Ghost World the best indie comic film.
And V for Vendetta as the best re-working of original material to translate to film.
