Not a huge fan of the others.
 
I suppose I'll go back as far as Donner's Superman films (unlike the Marvel list where I started with Blade, the start of the "comic book film revolution") and including the Vertigo and Wildstorm films since there are so few compared to Marvel.

Incredible/Awesome

I lost respect for your list when I saw you gave Batman and Robin a 2.... That's WAY too high. Hahaha
 
LOL. there arent enough NUMBERS B&R has to be higher than Catwoman but the list is only 1-10!!! D: you see my dilemma? hahaha.
 
Nolan's Bat-films and Watchmen. Aaand that's it.
 
Superman 1 & 2(but just barely on that one thanks to Richard Lester); as well as Batman Begins and that's really all there is as far as I am concerned. None of the rest pass muster.
 
When you look at DC films as a whole, it's so disappointing that beyond Batman (and 70s Superman) there just isn't much there. I haven't watched a few of these in years, but based on memory... I'm just including live action for now. Might do another one with the animated movies. Scores out of ten. All DC and its other imprints...


  1. The Dark Knight - 10
  2. Batman Begins - 10
  3. V for Vendetta - 9.5
  4. Batman Returns - 9.5
  5. Road to Perdition - 9.5
  6. Watchmen - 9
  7. A History of Violence - 8.5
  8. The Dark Knight Rises - 8.5
  9. Batman (1989) - 8
  10. Superman - 8
  11. Superman II - 8
  12. Constantine - 6
  13. Superman Returns - 5
  14. RED - 5
  15. The Spirit - 5
  16. Batman & Robin - 4
  17. Supergirl - 3
  18. Batman Forever - 3
  19. Catwoman - 3
  20. Green Lantern - 3
  21. Superman III - 3
  22. Superman IV: The Quest for Peace - 2
Maybe I'm being kind to some of the abysmal films towards the end there, but as time passes I find they don't 'offend' me as much as they used to. Sometimes I watch them just for a laugh.

Yet to see: Steel, Swamp Thing(s), Stardust, The Losers, Jonah Hex

Incredible - Dark Knight Rises, Batman Begins/Dark Knight
Solid - V For Vendetta, Batman, Watchmen
Some good moments but mostly ******ed - Batman Returns/Forever, Superman
Trash - Everything else

It can change drastically once Man Of Steel, Justice League, Flash, Wonder Woman and the Batman reboots happen. Blind faith maybe, but DC has the potential to really pick it up in the next several years.
 
I'm just going to list the ones I like in order of preference:

1. The Dark Knight
2. Batman Begins
3. Superman II
4. Superman
5. Batman Returns
6. V for Vendetta
7. Man of Steel
8. The Dark Knight Rises
9. Watchmen
10. Batman 1989

Only good ones I can think of:

The Dark Knight Trilogy
Batman 89
Batman Returns
Watchmen
Superman
V for Vendetta (which is overrated but still good)

The rest are pretty bad.
 
DC really needs to get their act together movie wise. I mean, their main franchise (Nolan's Batman) was the greatest thing ever. Even better than the best of Marvel's films. So they have that going for them. But that series is over now and the rest of their movies make anything marvel puts out look like Citizen Kane. As a bigger Marvel fan, I'm fine with this difference in quality. But I'd stil llvoe to see some DC characters done as much justice as Batman was y'know?
 
We finally have a new movie to add to this list! I watched Man of Steel last night and overall I enjoyed. It's not necessarily a great movie. It had a lot of great moments but I don't think it geld quite perfectly as a film. I don't think it did for Superman what 'Batman Begins' did for Batman, but it's really entertaining and I could see much potential for future sequels....as long as they get a new director (I'm not a fan of Snyder).
