    Default Favourite Super Hero Movie

    With all the superhero movies that came out in last decade, it is basically its own genre like the Western was.

    What is your favourite superhero movie?

    From when I was young till now, nothing beats the Superman The Movie with Chris Reeve, the use of the music also has a lot to dk with it.

    From recent ones, the first Avengers is at the top.

    I agree about The Avengers (first one). A very enjoyable movie. At some point it really feels like a comic book coming alive.

    I also like most of the X-men movies.
    The Dark Knight series is OK too, but I don't think it's as great as some people make it out to be. It takes itself too seriously.

    X2, Avengers, Spider-Man, and X-Men: First Class are some of my favorites.

    Captain America: Civil War. Going for the orchestral, not the chamber piece.

    I don't have a favorite. All these silly movies suck And yes, the original Spiderman with Reeves if far above the today's production. But if I should be forced to pick one, I would pick the Guardians of the Galaxy for its comedic dimension.

    I have to say, I found Black Panther grossly overrated. It wasn’t fun for me at all. Too much of sending a message.

    I enjoyed a different kind of super hero movie: "Bullet Proof Monk"

    the best superhero is of course Chuck Norris (how could I have forgotten him), closely followed by Steven Seagal and Bruce Willis

    Chuck Norris and Superman once fought each other on a bet.
    The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants.

    I sure hope you're referring to the Steven Seagal before the long leather coat!

    Supergirl (1984). Only superhero/heroine movie I have bothered to keep. Excellent Jerry Goldsmith score. Inconsistently charming acting by Helen Slater. Loopy plot, however.

    Love the genre (If they're done well)

    - X-Men
    - Batman - Christian Bale
    - Spiderman - Toby McGuire
    - Avengers
    - Thor
    - Iron Man
    - Guardians - Who knew Marvel was going to do comedy so well?
    - DeadPool - Like I said about Guardians. Hysterical and so well done.
    - Man of Steel.
    - Logan. Absolutely fantastic movie, regardless of the genre. NYTimes said it best, "It's so good, you forget it's a superhero movie."

    Outside of the Michael Keaton & Christian Bale Batman's and "Man of Steel" why can't DC come close to Marvel?? They really need to take a few pages out of Marvel's playbook and figure this out. Marvel has it down. Even Marvel TV shows are so much better. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage (OK Iron Fist is the weak link in the Defenders. He should change his name to Danny Bland - Horrible actor), Punisher. Set those against Flash (1st season wasn't horrible), Green Arrow (talk about bad acting and writing), there's no competition. DC needs to get their $h*@ together.

    Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
