Default Re: IGN's Top 25 Comic Book Movies

If TMNT had to be there, it should have been the sequel which was definetly better.

Im glad X2 is in the top 10 but Id have put it in top 5. Man thats my favorite comic movie but Im biased

It's a superhero movie for people who don't go to superhero movies, and for those who do, it's the one they've been yearning for"). The Dark Knight was a great thriller but it wasn’t even a decent superhero movie. It is the most overrated movie of all time.

You see, a good super hero movie is the one that is fun and serious at the same time and to some extent exaggerated. But Dark Knight is anything but fun. Actually it is so mature and takes itself so damn seriously that it is no longer recognizable as a superhero movie. That is exactly the same problem I have with the Watchmen comic too. I mean if wanted to waste my time with something so literary and deep, I would go read "War and Peace" or watch the Tarkovsky movies! but It is as I said before a really well-directed and well- acted thriller.

By the way, Metacritic reports a score of 83 out of 100 for Spider-Man 2 but a score of 82 out of 100 for the Dark Knight based on the reviews of the top critics!

DC has produced several great comic movies, most of which were Batman. I bet they were trying to force themselves not to have so many Batman titles on there bc there's argument to put the Keaton films on there as those were great
