    (1) Batman Dark Knight (The Joker stole the show)
    (2) Batman Begins (Bale was the right choice unlike his replacement)
    (3) Man of Steel (call me crazy, but I loved this movie)
    (4) Spiderman 2 (Dr. Oct and Spiderman, great)
    (5) Avengers
    (6) Xmen 2 (beat the original in my mind)
    (7) Spiderman (Great, just not as good as the sequel)
    (8) Xmen (Ditto)
    (9) Ironman
    (10) Watchmen (Never heard of them before, but the movie was awesome)
    (11) Hulk/Ed Norton (It was very under-rated)
    (12) Amazing Spiderman (the reboot is good, just not as good at Toby's Spiderman 1 and 2)
    (13) Captain America (It was a ton better than I expected)
    (14) Ironman 2 (I am leaving off 3, since I thought it wasn't any good)
    (15) Incrediables (Great Pixar movie)
    (16) Unbreakable (Very unrated movie. I still enjoy it.)
    (17) Batman/Michael Keaton (A little cheesy now and so inferior to the new one, but still good in it's own way)
    (18) Blade (Pick one they are all the same, but Snipes played the character well)
    (19) Crow (Very dark and something cool about it)
    (20) Superman 1 & 2 (I loved these as a kid, but now they are very cheesy and low special effects. Still good in their own way, but dated.)

    NOTE: I left Wolverine (he was my favorite superhero growing up, but I thought the movies were weak); Thor (I didn't see the 2nd one and I thought the first sucked); FF (blew);

    The second Batman movie was The Dark Knight, not Rising. That was the not nearly as good third movie.

    I don't think the Crow constitutes a super hero movie. It's based on a comic, but not a super hero. I'd also put it higher on the list, right at the top.

    Spiderman 2 is wildly overrated. Doc Ock and his 'look at this glowing chip prominently displayed which, if damaged, will cause me to lose control of myself to the AI' alone is enough to put the movie way down the list.

    The Blade trilogy are not all the same, not by a long shot. The first is the best, the second not as good but at least they tried for the same formula, then the third is a terrible imitation with far too much corny humor added in (thanks for ruining another movie Ryan Reynolds!).

    Finally someone else who didn't like Thor!

    I would add Kick-Ass to the list. I loved Hit-Girl in the first movie. :)

    Opps. I liked when they just called the squel the same name with a 2 on the end.

    As you stated he was based on a comic. He was a super-powered vigilante. That is a super-hero in my book. Not sure if I rate it as high as you, but I liked the movie.

    I disagree. I thought it was great from beginning to end and was well casted.

    True, I just didn't want to break them down. Reynolds ruining another super-hero movie, who would have thought that would happen (Green Latern and Dead Pool).

    People didn't start to say Thor wasn't that bad until after the Avengers movie. Prior to that the critics and viewers didn't like it that much.

    I never saw it, so I can't comment

    Totally agree with your comment on Unbreakable. Highly under valued movie. I'd rate it a top five pick.

    Not sure about top five, but the character had a lot of depth. I wish it was marketed better. A squel would have been nice.

    Dune (1984) comes to mind tho it doesn't fit the genre.
    Paul was a super hero of universal proportion. :thup:

    Very end of the 2nd Wolverine Origns movie included an easter egg scene that had me screaming for joy (at least in my head, am more conservative emotionally than that hehe.)

    I'm not as harsh a critic of these movies as some are. I tend to look for what they got right, and enjoy that as opposed to judging them as a whole.

    In that vein, I really enjoyed both Green Lantern and Daredevil, neither of which will prolly make anyone's list. I thought Mark Strong was perfect as Sinestro, and I thought that Colin Ferrell was perfect as Bullseye. Getting those two right made those movies enjoyable for me.

    Have to disagree with you on the Spiderman movies.

    Amazing Spiderman was much truer to the comic. PP didn't meet MJ as a kid and I thought they did a much better job showcasing Spiderman's skills especially his speed.
