I have been wanting to do this for a while so I'm finally gonna do it. I love comic book films when they do it right and follow the source material. I rewatched some of these films to see if they still holds up. Be aware that I'm just choosing the films I wanna choose so don't say "Why you have that there?'' or "That should be higher." This is just my opinion talking about my favorite Comic Book Films, so without further or do, let's get started.
Kicking off our list we have
15.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(1990)
Yes, I put this film on this list because it's actually the only film in the series that captures the tone of the original comic book.. I loved this film, the costumes still look real to this day, Michelangelo is my favorite turtle because his mask is orange(My favorite color) and he loves pizza, which I do,the only good sequel in the series was Secret Of The Ooze. Go Ninja Go Ninja Go!!!
Some call it "Amazing" some call it Unnecessary but I thought it was great.
14.The Amazing Spider-Man
I know there are people out there that don't like this movie but I thought it was a great revival to the franchise, even if it was 5 years to soon. At first i didn't like the suit when I first saw it, but after watching the film 've grown to like it. Andrew Garfield is a great Spider-Man, him and Emma Stone have chemistry, Rhys Ifans is great as Dr Curt Connors A.K.A The Lizard, some the action scenes were pretty uninteresting, but other than that it's still a great film. Better than Raimi's Spidey 1 & 3 I'll have to say. Also best Stan Lee cameo ever.
Another great revival to a "Xcellent" franchise
13.X-Men: First Class
X-Men: First Class really made everything better after the disappointment of, The Last Stand and the abomination of Origins. Yes they could've rebooted the franchise with young Cyclops and Jean Grey, but oh well the movie is great and that's all I'm gonna say.
Here's a film that influenced comic book till this day and that is...
12.Tim Burton's Batman
Tim Burton's Take on Batman was Awesome and everything about this film the tone, score, practical effects and set design were spectacular. Gotham looks really realistic and well done. Keaton is great as the Caped Crusader, but Jack Nicholson's performance as The Joker is what really make the film a phenomenon .
The Film that started the comic book film boom....
Superman: The Movie is without a doubt a classic, even though I love the sequel(Not including 3, Quest For Peace and Returns.) The late Mr. Reeves is still the best Superman we had I like Routh and Cavill, but Reeves was so memorable and just perfect, Superman 1978 is still a great movie from a comic book film that come out in the late 70's.
Here is one I'm gonna get the most hate on, but I don't care.
10.The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Here comes the hate, I know what you people are gonna say, "IT"S TO MUCH STUFF GOING ON, ELECTRO AND RHINO WERE STUPID, BLAH BLAH BLAH." People, welcome to the internet, were people have opinions. TASM 2 won't be on everybody's top comic book films, but I had a lot of fun watching this film from beginning to end, again I still loved Garfield and Stone, Jamie Foxx was no pun intended electrifying as Electro and Dane Dehaan as Harry Osborn was just brilliant especially as The Green Goblin. There I said it now bring on the hate everyone.
Here's a great superhero film that is R-Rated
Who said Comic Book films can't be Rated R? Watchmen was really a huge surprise for me and it's DC Comic film that isn't Batman Or SuperMan. Jackie Earl Haley was terrific in this film(But not as Freddy Kruger). and everything in this movie looks beautiful. Nuff Said.
I'm gonna bundle these two because, I love Disney movies, but these film really sucked me into the story from beginning to end.
8.Big Hero 6 and The Incredibles
Both of these films have the formulas of a Disney film, Great Story,Characters and Heart. I love Big Hero 6 because, it was actually a great surprise for me from seeing the trailers and ads for this film and Baymax is just awesome. I love The Incredibles for nostalgic reasons, I grew up watching film, I actually saw the film twice in theaters at the age of 4, can you believe that? But both films are great in their own way.
Here's the film that started the MCU and I'm glad we have this film.
I remembered back in either late 07 or early 08 I saw the trailer in this film and I was thinking two things, This film actually surprise everyone and succeed or It could be a huge failure, But my first prediction was right, this movie was awesome, Love RDJ as Iron Man/Tony Stark he was made for this role, The action was incredible and very fun to watch and that what this movie was great popcorn flick fun. To bad Iron Man 2 didn't turn out that way but that's another story. Love Iron Man.
At first I wan't a fan of Captain America but now I am thanks to....
6.Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Winter Soldier was just so entertaining in every way, as Comic Book film, Spy Thriller, Action Sequel, Action Film and just a Sequel in general. It's really Marvel's Die Hard Or T2 if you can say that. This movie actually made me like Captain America more and The Falcon, Anthony Mackie nailed the role. I like Chris Evans better as The Human Torch, but he's still good as Cap. I am pumped for Civil War.
Now are on to the great stuff in the final five. I'm bundling these two films again because I love them and they are actually in the same series.
5.X2 and Days Of Future Past
X2 had great story, characters, action scenes and effects. X2 also had NightCrawler who is just awesome. Days Of Future Past was just a welcome back to the series and it had the same things I loved about X2 but it had QuickSilver a character who is almost an equivalent to NightCrawler and both films also had heart and emotions which is what I love about both films and gosh I love these movies.
Here's another nostalgic movie I grew up watching and also saw in theaters.
Even though I love the new series more, Spider-Man 2 is the one in the trilogy, besides the first film, I always go back to for many reasons. This is the first comic book film I saw in theaters and I remembered loving the train scene and I still do. Tobey Maguire is great as Peter Parker but I don't love him as Spider-Man as much as I love Garfield as the web-slinger. Molina was just awesome as Doc Ock and it was perfect casting. Some one give this man an Oscar please. There are some silly moments like in the other film, but this is an example on how to make a sequel improve over it's predecessor. Spider-Man 2 still lives on as my favorite Spidey film even though I love TASM 2. Again bring on the hate.
I've never heard of them at first but I do know and they are awesome
3.Guardians Of The Galaxy
I've have never read or heard of the Guardians Of The Galaxy before seeing this movie, so I wasn't really hyped for this movie. I saw and I was extremely surprised, Guardians was just a fun ride I love the characters, Rocket and Groot are my favorite, it was hilarious, it was action packed, it was stunning, it was well written, it was well shot, it was everything a summer blockbuster should be fun and I am looking forward to seeing them crossing over with The Avengers. Speaking of The Avengers.
The perfect ensemble movie in my opinion
2.Marvel's The Avengers
Oh my gosh this movie was amazing, I loved everything about, Action, Characters, Dialogue, and it was just a film every marvel fan wanted. Age Of Ultron was entertaining but it wasn't anything new like this film, Joss Wheadon direction of this film was amazing in every way. Mark Ruffalo as Hulk is what made the film shine, I liked Edward Norton and I detested Eric Bana. The scene were The Hulk was just beating up Loki was hilarious. "Puny God." I'm not going into more detail because everyone have seen this film and know it's great. Let's just hope Justice League be as good as this film. AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!!
Before I get to my number 1 comic book films here are some Honorable Mentions
Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Thor and Thor: The Dark World
Iron Man 3
The Incredible Hulk
Captain America: The First Avenger
Hellboy 1 and 2
Finally were at number one I'm pretty sure you all know what it is and you are right
1.The Dark Knight Trilogy
I'm not just putting it on top of the list because other people do, I really love watching all of these films. I really don't see as a trilogy, I see as one long movie, and it's my favorite version of Batman. Batman Begins was a great setup and underrated if you think about it, The Dark Knight was just a extravaganza of awesomeness and The Dark Knight Rises was great but I have problems with that film. These movies are not only comic book films, they are crime dramas about a guy in a bat suit fighting crime and kicking some serious butt. I hope Ben Affleck make a good Batman next year.
Guys those are all of my favorite comic book films like I said before these are my opinions and mines only not yours. Yes I will be making a worst comic book films list in the future stay tuned and stay gold.
