Bix you've got no sense for comic book movies at all, bro.

SOTSG, just rely on your pal Dunk to tell you which ones are good or bad. 8)

The best comic book movie in recent years was Batman Begins. No?

Sorry. In the future, every movie I see will be deemed either "horrible" or "amazing". There will be no middle ground.

Probably the best comic book movie, period. I thought the first Spidey was good, but all others are second to Batman Begins.

That getting with the spirit of America. There is no middle ground, only good guys/bad guys and best movie ever/worst movie ever.

It was way up there. But there are some others like Ghost World or Road To Perdition that get zero friggin' credit because they don't have superheroes jumping around. Batman Begins and X-Men are probably my two favorites that are based on real properties. Unbreakable is really good-- it's what a superhero would be like in real-life but not based on an existing property. That movie doesn't get any credit because it followed The Six Sense and everyone's expectations were too high.

So what's the worst comic book movie?

I couldn't make it through the second Spider-Man. What a piece of Fucking Shit. Walked out in the theater, first time and last time I'd ever done that.

That Daredevil movie didn't seem to good the one time I watched 20 minutes of it on FX. The second and third X-Men's left a lot to be desired as well.

But I think we know the answer: The Hulk. Fuck you Ang Lee. Butcher. Thank god for Ed Norton.

Yeah I don't really consider Ghost World or Road to Perdition to be "comic book" movies, even if they were based on comics or graphic novels or whatever gay titles you nerds give to that genre nowadays. To me "comic book" basically "means" superhero. So comic books mean Spider-Man, Superman, X-Men, Daredevil, Batman, Iron Man, etc. Something like Sin City might be considered a "comic book" movie to me, but usually I'm talking traditional, maintstream comics. Like, are most people going to know that Road to Perdition was a comic? I doubt it.

Also, I think Sin City is the best movie listed in this post.

And the worst comic book movie that I've seen: Spider-Man 3. Just awful.

Daredevil was an abortion of a movie. Ben Affleck knows how to lay a few turds, doesn't he?

I, for one, didn't have the slightest idea that Road to Perdition was a comic book. The first X-Men is my favorite superhero movie, but I agree with Bixby that Sin City is the best movie on that list.


I saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall last weekend and loved it. I liked it more than Knocked Up, less than 40 Year Old Virgin, and about the same as Superbad. And I definitely think a Dracula puppet musical could succeed in real life (if it hasn't already happened).

Yeah, I forgot about Sin City. And 300, even. Both good movies and based on Frank Miller comics.

You're out of your mind. Spidey 2 is a top-5 superhero flick. Maybe you're thinking of Spidey 3, which was a complete turdburger.

Also in the running for worst SH movie: both Fantastic Fours, and this, which I've never seen but has to be awful:

But imo, the worst SH film ever has to be Batman and Robin. Hell, that's in contention for worst film ever.
