Title of the thread says it all.

I personally like Tim Burton’s Batman. I also love the underrated Punisher: War Zone.


(Bad Lieutenant) #2

Batman (1966)

Batman (1966)


(ENNIOO) #4

Superman 2. Reeve gets into the part and is more relaxed, with some memorable action.


(Bill san Antonio) #5

Diabolik
Barbarella
Scott Pilgrim vs the World


(Stanton) #6

Fantastic movie


(scherpschutter) #7

So was Batman 66


(El Topo) #8

Always liked comic books and Superhero’s, but not specially fun of Superhero’s films, by the contrary. IMO its from Manga comics that the best film adaptations have come out.

Ichi the killer

Lone wold and cub

Oldboy

American Splendor

V from vendetta and An history of violence weren’t bad films also


(Stanton) #9

And Old Boy. Even better, one of the best films ever. I always forget that it is based on a comic.


(chuck connors brother) #10

The Dark Knight
Superman 2 (Richard Donner cut)
Darkman
Story of Ricky
Watchmen
Oldboy

didn’t know Oldboy is based on comics
Ichi the Killer is very good, dunno if one of my favs, i should rewatch it
but, if i should choose favorite one - maybe Crow from Proyas (which imo is better then James O’Barr comics)
Road to Perdition, hm, hm, maybe …
Batman from Burton


(I love you M.E. Kay) #12

I haven’t finished the Old Boy comic, but based on what I read, the film is a lot better.


(chameleon) #13

Batman
Spiderman


(kit saginaw) #14

I also gotta go with 1966’s Batman, then Lester’s Superman 2.

no dream team - batdog and batkid are missing (i don’t count Robin, he is adoslescent, but i want annoying obnoxious six year old kiddo)


(scherpschutter) #18

There were no dogs and kids in the Batman series I grew up with, just Batman, Robin and super villains.
My favorite then was The Joker, later of course Cat Woman, preferably played by Julie Newmar (look to the left, that’s Julie too)

Cat Woman is still a favorite, but I don’t like the Joker anymore. Too … I-don’t-know-what, just too. Today I would go for The Pinguin as the real menacing lunatic. Mean, lean and keen.


(tomas) #19

after few sessions with Nolan’s Dark Knight it is charted as no.1 now
Burton’s Batman returns somewhat loses few places (weak ending)
Catwoman is on the top though, but in different chart (something like “who the fuck directed this shit” chart)

I also like Chris Nolan’s films but the first Burton film is tops for me.

I also like Blade II and Kick ass.

I like the 78 Superman film but wasn’t too craxy about the deux ex machina.

I saw the Amazing Spiderman recently and I thought it was just as good as the first Raimi film, although I still think it idiotic to reboot the franchise so quickly.
