sh4wn and I decided to post our lists together. See what his list looks like. As with sh4wn’s list, the criteria remains the same. I’m pretty sure he explained it well, so I won’t bother.

I have to say that this was a very difficult list to compile. Once I got the movies down I wanted to try to rank, it got even more difficult. I must say that some of these movies made it on the list due to nostalgia (Superman was my favorite movie as a kid, but these days Margot Kidder is painful to watch), and there a couple of others I had hoped would have made it (The Hulk and Superman II were close, and I really tried to get Mystery Men on here).

In any case, this list is as it is for now. As I see some older movies I missed, the list may change. I’m pretty sure that time will change the list as well. Let’s also not forget that there are some strong choices coming out in the next couple of years. And here’s to hoping they’ll get around to putting Green Lantern on the screen.

  1. Aah. The Green Lantern. I always liked him. It’s one of those names that just sounds cool. Though not if you actual picture it.

  2. That’s a good point. Never really thought about his name like that before, but I could see how inciting the wrath of “the green lantern” couldn’t possibly be all that intimidating.

  3. I was pleasantly surprised by Batman Begins; i thought it was fantastic and I could watch it again as well as Spider Man. I also liked the Incredible Hulk, but I haven’t found too many others who share my love for it =-)

  4. I mean “The Hulk”. I watched the T.V. series faithfully as a kid too. My kid brother who was 2 at the time wanted to Be the Hulk (I can’t believe my Mom let him watch it now that I have two young kids….I mean……two years old?!)

  5. Ah yes… Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, what chemistry! I loved the television show as well. It’s actually held up considerably well with age (if you happen to catch it on the sci-fi channel when they aren’t playing ECW wrestling). ‘The Hulk’ was so very close to making it on my list.

  6. I do not believe X3 should be on anyone’s list of Top 10 Favorite Superhero movies. What about Superman II? That was pretty awesome. Or even the original Batman movie from the old Adam West TV Show? Sure, it was campy but it knew not to take itself seriously. X3 took itself seriously and suffered greatly for it.
