I wouldn't say that Mickey Rourke was overlooked at all. Every time that movie comes up, Marv is usually the first thing people mention. I would say the overlooked performances in that film came from Clive Owen and Benicio Del Toro, who were both brilliant, in my opinion.

Otherwise, great list. Kudos for recognizing Kelsey Grammer in X-Men 3. Perfect casting as far as I'm concerned.

Fun list!  Linda Carter as Wonder Woman is ICONIC to every degree!  I'm also a huge fan of Pfeiffer as Catwoman...she completely stole the show, and shined as the sexiest female villian in history!  Well, in my opinion anyways...

What a great list. I agreed with almost everyone on the list. And while the Scooby Doo movies were definately not memorable,  Lillard.was perfect as Shaggy. It was also great to get 2 mentions of Flash Gordon this week.

Mad props to Lillard as Shaggy.

SOOO Glad Beast made the top of the list , I came out of that theater like "man this film sucked..but Kelsey was awesome as the beast!" and no one ever talked about his role. Thank you.

Tonebone, I'm with you all the way on the Scooby movie, I laughed my ass off the whole time. I loved it

Sorry, gauley, but I've heard several people say and seen several people comment online that they think Batman Returns was better than Batman. I don't personally agree with them. I didn't particularly care for BR.  But it doesn't surprise me at all to see that written in this article.

Kelsey Grammer was #1?? Ugh!!!!  There was nothing stand out in that movie.  Horrible pick for #1.

its hard not to like Gary Oldman in ANY role his put into. I love that Alan Cummings' Nightcrawler is on this list. The first few minutes of Xmen2 are the best of all the movies. Also, Kelsey Grammar being cast as the Beast is similar to the casting of Patrick Stewart as Prof. X. Is seemed so obvious given the character traits. Besides the Beast being kinda muscley.

How come the list didn't include MIchael Clarke Duncan's turn as the Kingpin in the Daredevil flick?

Great list except for Alan Cummings and Kelsey Grammar... I woulda liked to see Rebecca Romijn on here just on the fact that she looked amazing in all the x-films... and probably one of the biggest highlights of said films.
