There are lots of bad comic book movies and very good ones that are underrated. So lets start off with the worst.

The Worst

Batman & Robin (1997)

My god this movie this movie was terrible, nobody has said that this movie was good, and its terrible. The puns were terrible but very enjoyable and gave me a good laugh whenever I watch it, but everything else was just terrible I mean they gave him A BAT CREDIT CARD!

This movie was so bad that if you watch the interviews on the DVD everybody who helped make this movie admitted that the movie was terrible and Joel Schumacher even apologized for the movie. As much as this movie sucks, if it would've have been a great hit, we would've have never gotten the Nolan Trilogy and that would be terrible,and fun fact: If this movie was a hit Joel Schumacher planned to make a few more Batman movies like "Batman Triumphant", "Batman Year One", and finally "Batman Beyond". Yes you read that correctly, we almost got a Batman Beyond movie, but lets be honest, which would you rather have? A Batman Beyond movie? Or The Nolan Trilogy? Yeah that's what I thought.


Catwoman is terrible. Do I even have to say why? My god this movie is the worst comic book movie ever. Now I will be honest, the Catwoman suit that Halle Berry wore first in the movie was acceptable, it was a suit that Catwoman would wear and here is a picture of the first suit she wore earlier in the movie:

She also wore a mask so here is a picture of the mask she wore with the suit:

If they ever do another Catwoman movie, the suit should be like the one from Injustice:Gods Among Us

And the person who should play Catwoman is:

Olivia Thirlby. Olivia Thirlby played Anderson in Dredd (2012) and she did a great job and I think she would make a great Catwoman.

Godzilla 1998

Godzilla 1998 was so hyped up and failed so miserably. This movie was not Godzilla, it was so far away from it that the japanese renamed the monster "Zilla", just "Zilla". Once I accepted that its a different monster, I just watched the movie as a monster movie and its not that bad but as a Godzilla movie, its terrible. The movie was taking to much from Jurassic Park with the way Godzilla looked:

He looks like a T-Rex and there were babies of Godzilla that were basically the velociraptors from Jurassic Park, just look at them:

There now doesnt seem like Jurassic Park? Plus there is a scene where Zilla dry humps a building:

So if you are gonna watch this movie for the first time, just view it as a monster movie, not a Godzilla movie.

Green Lantern

Green Lantern had the potential to be amazing, and it just wasn't. I remember flipping through the channels at a resort and the scene where Hal Jordan was first on "Oa" was playing and I watched that scene then I had to go do something so I turned it off and left, and then two months later I as in a Blockbuster and I saw it in there, I rented and thought "Oh, I cant wait this will be so good", got home, and was very dissapointed. I tried to watch this movie twice, the first time I watched 10 minutes of it, and it was at 11:30 at night and I fell asleep. So the next day at 5:00 PM I tried to watch it again and I fell asleep 40 minutes into the movie.

The Underrated

Dredd (2012)

Whenever I ask someone if they have ever seen Dredd they just say that they have never heard of it. Dredd is awesome and its barely heard of, I was not that big of a Judge Dredd fan until I saw this movie. This movie has some very beautiful visuals, and the SLO-MO is very good and very well used. Karl Urban is one of my favorite actors and he is amazing as Dredd. Anderson is played by Olivia Thirlby, who I think is like the most beautiful actress of all time and the movie is action-packed. Dredd was full of bullets, blood, people being skinned alive, great lines, and SLO-MO. If you have not seen this movie yet, its instant on Netflix, its a short movie, so if you have Netflix just watch it, its great.

Watchmen (2009)

I am a huge fan of Watchmen, the graphic novel is my favorite book, the movie is definitely on my top 10 favorite movies list, I loved the movie so much that I bought the Ultimate Cut of the movie for $42 on Amazon. I ask people if they have ever watched this movie, and they say "Whats Watchmen?" then I tell them its amazing, they find out how long it is, and they say that they don't want to watch it. For me, the longer the movie is, the more enjoyment for me. If you have not seen this movie or read the graphic novel, do it immediately.
