24) Swamp-Thing - 7.7/10

Heh. I forgot about Scott Pilgrim and Kick-Ass. Those both would likely be in my top 10 list. I guess the fourth Spider-Man film would be even lower.

Kick-Ass, I forgot that one

All of them go below The Avengers for me

Compared to movies that portray Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Fantastic 4, the X-Men, etc., this movie IMO shows us what superheroes would really be like if they existed.

SM1 is a great origin film, and it really set the standard for CBMs in general at the time. I still love watching it despite the film's aging, and think it stands as one of the best comic book adaptions of all time (based on my signature, you can see that lol)

I think with the new trilogy, they really have the opportunity to make one of the greatest CBMs. TASM set up the franchise so well IMO.
Fair enough. I respect your opinion. To each his own .

I agree that the details are off, but the overall tone is right.
I disagree with that. The Spider-Man comics have never really been very cheesy or campy to begin with. They weren't Batman dark but they weren't all silly either. They were pretty serious. They were a bit silly in the 1960's but that was a sign of the times. What was considered silly back then is what is considered serious today. If you update them a bit, you would get TASM's tone or at least Spectacular Spider-Man's tone (which is still more serious than the Raimi films). But even for back then, the Spider-Man comics were far ahead of their times in terms of tone. It got away with many things that comics couldn't get away with in the 1960's and 1970's such as Gwen's death and Harry's drug addiction. While that was going on, Batman was still fighting campy silly aliens.

I definitely disagree with the 1980's. That was the time when all comics became mature again. The tone of the Raimi films doesn't fit that time at all, especially since stories like Kraven's Last Hunt and Amazing Spider-Man #300 came out during that time.

It is not really the comics, even if Garfield has Peter down better. Just my opinion.
TASM doesn't have the seriousness of TDK. It's just more serious and more mature than the Raimi films and like I said before, Spider-Man comics are not exactly Batman dark but they're not exactly campy or lighthearted either. They're just serious so the tone of the movie is not that far off. Plus, TASM still has many lighthearted moments that are nowhere to be found in TDK.

I don't see how the movie being a reboot automatically means they're pandering to popular trends. I don't think it is far to criticize or deduct points from a movie simply because it is a reboot. I saw a lot of critics do this too. Many of them have said that it was a good movie and gave it a rating but then concluded by deducting a few points simply because it was a reboot.

How is the high school angst of Twilight present in the movie? Just because Peter is in high school? It is an origin film and they wanted to take back Spider-Man to his roots when he first became Spider-Man. It makes sense that he would be in high school. Since when is a film automatically pandering to the Twilight audience just because parts of it are in a high school setting? Especially in this case since Webb is a director that can do good drama without making it like Twilight (see 500 Days of Summer) and because Spider-Man has always been part drama to begin with.

It feels like a mix to me but with a lot more ties to Amazing. It's the second best blending of Amazing and Ultimate so far IMO (first being TSSM).

Nolan happened because Batman hit rock bottom and WB allowed him to excercise his talents as a result. The terrible SM3 was the biggest Spidey film to date financially, far from rock bottom. Never had Superman lows either which is why we have Nolan godfathering MoS.

Will Webb have the control over this that Nolan had? I doubt it myself. Sadly, it feels like Spidey needs to fail big in order be saved from mediocrity. And at that point he'd revert back to meddling Marvel Studios and it's cookie cutter ways. Basically he's stuck for the forseeable future. We may not get a trancendent Spider-Man film for twenty + years
You may have a point. We'll just have to wait and see. I really hope that Sony realizes that after the success of the MCU and the Nolan films, they can't just screw around anymore. They have to make something mind-blowing because that is the norm today, especially with a character like Spider-Man. Heck, the reason TASM was seen as disappointing by many people isn't so much because the movie is bad but because Spider-Man is up there with Batman and Superman are people have the exact expectations for him that they have for them. So when they walked into TASM, most people expected something on the level of BB and TDK (or at least on Iron Man 1's level) and didn't get that.

It's really a shame for Spider-Man if he, being one of the top 3 most iconic and popular superheroes with Batman and Superman, doesn't get a great mind-blowing film. Batman already got 3 of them (well, in my opinion 2 of them but everyone else loved TDKR). Superman got 2 of them in the late 70's and early 80's and will presumably get another one next year. Heck, even Iron Man got a really great film with Iron Man 1 and will presumably get another film of that quality next year. I hope the thing that will push Sony to giving it their best and having faith in Marc Webb will be the fear of falling behind in the game and having Spider-Man be overtaken by most likely Iron Man or someone else from the MCU. Or heck, even by Fox's X-Men. Days of Future Past is coming out the same year as TASM 2.

I find it highly interesting that these four films have been the only CBMs to be in AFI's Top Ten Films list in their respective years:

Spider-Man 2 (2004)
The Dark Knight and Iron Man (2008)
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

And I wouldn't be surprised if these are the four major CBMs for anyone.

SM2 and Avengers are the most overrated films ever, especially Avengers, which is rated that high because it had all the heroes we love. Marvel has much better movies.

Agreed.

Right now I have little doubt about MoS with the Nolan/Snyder combo, or DOFP with Singer back at the helm. I'm expecting great films from these guys, with TASM2 I'm only hoping. But what do we really have to be optimistic about? I do get the strong feeling that Spider-Man will be overtaken by DOFP, MoS and IM3. I almost wish TASM2 were slated for 2015 so Sony could see these films before they went into production. If Nolan's films haven't awakened them at this point, perhaps these films would help make the point in terms of characterization and scale. TASM was competent but in some respects it's already a failure. People will say it's the highest grossing reboot ever, but it failed to achieve what BB did in terms of building an enthusiastic audience for the sequel. It failed to really capture the imagination of the collective audience. If you scan through most sites you will see a lot of indifference regarding this series moving forward. People are split. MoS already has more positive buzz from a single teaser then this reboot ever had. This is obviously the last thing Sony wanted, yet they will limp on. I personally don't think this is the crew that will give us the definitive, iconic, transcendant Spider-Man film. That is probably years off. The dye has already been cast for this series imo.

You should reread those comics. It's all very melodramatic and somewhat of a soap opera. As John Romita Sr. who penciled what many consider to be the Golden Age for the character, said: "It's a soap opera where a fight breaks out every once in a while." Romita was brought in to add the romance to the story. Stan Lee's tone is very cheeky what with "Hey true believers...'nuff said...excelsior!"

There has always been a light element of camp or cheese to it. That's why Spider-Man can be such a smartass to his villains. It's why they get away with plot threads like Harry Osborn developing amnesia and forgetting Peter Parker is Spider-Man--a plot thread used and reused all the way through the early '90s--or that JJJ takes credit for Spider-Man quitting.

Granted, there are very serious and dramatic moments. Peter not finding a job, not being able to pay the rent, Aunt May getting sick and of course things like Uncle Ben dying or Gwen Stacy dying or eventually Harry Osborn dying. Raimi found that too. It is a marriage of light zippy fun and exhilaration from being Spider-Man mixed with the weight and sadness of growing up and loss. Peter feels burdened by Ben's death and that is very heavy in Raimi's trilogy. The bugle horn Elfman repeatedly uses is like a pang in Peter's side. And of course the deaths of Norman and Harry Osborn gave both the first and third film a heavy sense of loss and tragedy like the comics...but a very soapy one. Also, like the comics.

While Tobey's Peter may be too mopey and not witty enough and Dunst's MJ is far too dour and more like Gwen than MJ in personality, they inhabit a world that feels like the one Stan Lee wrote and many writers such as Gerry Conway, Roger Stern and Tom DeFalco, tried to emulate for the longest time.

That's why I said late 1980s. Really there is a before-and-after effect of KLH. KLH is one of my favorite Spidey stories, but it should be noted it was originally intended to be a Batman/Joker story. After that, Spidey did become more serious and introspective with feeling responsibility over Venom, growing anger and resentment over returning foes like Harry and the Lizard, etc. But that was nearly 30 years into his existence. You can read a few issues prior about him struggling between the Black Cat wanting a booty call and MJ discovering his identity while her father has come back in her life to find that soapy adventure quality the series had all the way up until about 1987-1988.

The term "reboot" alone is studio jargon for a trend that got big in Hollywood after the success of Batman Begins and Casino Royale. By doing a reboot alone--as opposed to doing a loose sequel with a new cast and tone or just ignoring continuity--is following a recent trend. By giving it a darkly lit setting where the trailers emphasize he is being chased by a police captain and that this film is about "BEGINS," emphasizes it wants to be like Nolan. As for Twilight? I just think the emphasis in the romantic scenes on little dialogue but long, dramatic stares has become cinematic shorthand for teen romance since Catherine Hardwick's first 2008 release. Before that teens were still being written in the John Hughes style and there was a before-and-after result to Twilight which TASM falls under.

None of this has to be bad. But it is clearly following trends. And I do think the comics used to have a lighthearted tone that switched between zippy fun and heavy melodrama. Raimi caught that even if some didn't like his slapstick humor. The new style feels more like other movies than the comics. That doesn't have to be a bad thing. It is just an observation.

The other two won't be forgotten, but Ledger's Joker had a cultural affect that I never quite saw with either of the other films. That's not to say that TDK is unquestionably the best (although many would argue it is), just that it had the biggest impact.
It seems as though you're really only suggesting Ledger's Joker will not be forgotten moreso than The Dark Knight as the entire film itself since you keeping bringing up Ledger's performance as Joker.

I have to admit, Ledger created an amazing performance and no one will deny this, but I am not talking about one single performance. I am talking about the films themselves. Already, The Dark Knight Trilogy is already ranked with the greats of Lord of the Rings and the original Star Wars(don't believe me, look up 'best trilogies' on Google or Bing) and while the trilogy as a whole will not be forgotten, I also feel the films themselves will test the times of how CBMs can become old and stale, moreso TDK and TDKR than BB(while, yes, it is a great origin film, its flaws were 'fixed' with the latter two installments).

I think I'm more surprised that the question of the poll had me thinking that it's asking for someone to vote for their favorite CBM, not favoriteS.

The poll is multiple choice. You can choose all of your favorites on it.

But, I would say, though, we should ask this question for every fan of particular superheroes as well.

Side note: I typed out superherpes



A voice will make the films age? That's just nitpicking, but that won't age any kind of film.

TDK and TDKR will definitely go through the test of time, I guarantee it. As four years have passed and TDK is still the talk of the town with CBMs, people will be talking about TDKR in 2016.

I'll eat my own socks if this isn't true.
They will stand the test of time as much as a CBM can..

Of course neither of us can tell the future, but TDK will definitely age as years pass by. Its not a classic.

I'm not surprised that we have members like you laughing at people's opinions.

That's a contradiction. You say you cannot tell the future, but then say TDK will DEFINITELY age.

Of all of the CBM movies on that list, that is the one I would put money on to age the best. It's still the highest rated, most popular CBM movie 4 and a half years later. I think it still will be, or at least one of the most popular, in 14 years time. 24 years time etc.

Movies that age badly don't have reactions and influence like this;

Whoops, I did contradict myself there. I meant to say "probably."

TDK has become a modern trend. Let's all be "dark." Spider-Man, James Bond, Star Trek, etc. Given enough time, that will die out. Unless 50 years from now everyone is still trying to be like TDK (which I doubt it will).

It's been very very long since the last time I watched the Crow
Maybe I should watch it again

No other CBM needs to try to be like TDK for TDK to still remain as one of the best CBMs. Imo, TDK and TDKR will most likely be memorable as Superman: The Movie still is to this day.
