Actually, I liked the cinematography on Electra. It was a visually stunning film, but I can't say much more for it.

LOL.

"The previous Blu-ray Disc sales record was set earlier in the fourth quarter by Paramount Home Entertainment´s Iron Man, which sold more than 500,000 for the first week.

So, with "The Dark Knight" beating the record on day one is pretty impressive. "  
 

Ouch.

If Batman Forever is also an honorable mention, where are the last 2 Punisher films?  I rather watch Ghost Rider than any of the 3 Punisher movies.

I agree that Popeye should definately not be on this list.....along with The Shadow, Daredevil (Elektra was way worse) and Blade 3.......Where the hell is Man-Thing, that totally blew!, and Howard the Duck!  And I have to agree with Hanso, TDK is the best ever (like Hanso says "it owns son") ; but Iron Man and Spiderman are close behind!

I may be in the minority but this list ... although it has some valid contenders ... the order is wrong....

Specifically I enjoyed the Shadow movie a lot and wouldn't even put it on this list.

For all the cliche-ness around Batman and Robin (nipples) being the worst batman movie. I actually would put Batman Forever as the worst Batman movie.  I even enjoyed the 60's Batman movie more than the Val Kilmer crapfest.

I also enjoyed Daredevil and thought it was a pretty good movie...definitely better than any of the Punisher/Ghost Rider movies.

I also agree with Wiseguy that Iron Man was by far the better Comic Book based movie this year... revenue aside. Don't get me wrong, TDK was a great movie that I enjoyed tremendously but I think Iron Man is more faithful to the comic book character.

I would put Steel near the top of this list with Catwoman.

Anyway it is all a matter of taste. from where I come from, up until Iron Man came out I had Spiderman 2 as the best comic book based movie and the real problem with the Hulk movie was not the Dog fight scene but the stupid final battle with Nick Nolte.

Thank you for picking Superman IV as #1. I'm still in shock all these years later. Personally, I kind of liked Capt. America in a cheesy, campy 60's Batman kind of way but that's only in my odd and twisted world :)

What makes a super hero?  Are Popeye, Judge Dread, or the Punisher superheroes?  They're comic book/strip characters, sure.  But are they super heroes?

For all his shinanagins, what makes Popeye a superhero?  The sailor man has obvious super powers, but what sort of supercrime does he fight?  Usually he's just fighting Bluto (sp?) over Olive Oil.  

For all his supercoppery, what makes Judge Dread a superhero?  He fights crime in the future with technology that's common place in the future.  Other then that, he's just a cop doing his job.  

For all the body bag's he's filled, what makes the Punisher a superhero?  He doesn't use unusual technology or really even fight/prevent crime.  He just kills bad people regardless of their situation.

Wow! The Shadow was made for $40?!!  You might want to have some sort of copy editor look over your articles befor eyou post them.  It's one thing to have typos and such on comment boards, but in the actual article where you are paid for writing this?

Also, I think the top three should be Elektra, Catwoman, and Steel in a three way tie for worst comic book film ever.  Elektra is probably the closest I've ever come to actually standing up and walking out of a theater.  Most bad movies, I'll at least sit through because I paid for the ticket, but I really was tempted to demand a refund after that steaming pile of crap.  After these films is where I'd place Batman and Robin followed by Superman IV.

I pretty well agree with everyone else...Popeye and '60s Batman should not be on this list.  Popeye is was pretty entertaining not a great film, but a fun one, and '60s Batman was campy fun like the tv show.

Hey guys...couple of things...Amish...as to the deal about one film per franchise and why two Batman films are included...I don't consider the 1966 film part of the Batman Franchise per se...that was a spinoff from the TV show.  And yes it was just like a longer version of the movie but I think fans were expecting more from a big screen version.  It did not perform well in terms of the boxoffice.

As for the Popeye debates...As i stated, Popeye can be considered the First Superhero.  Someone mentioned the film being an origin story and that's why he only ate spinach once, but imagine if Bruce Wayne didn't become Batman until the final 10 minutes, or Tony Stark didn't put on the armor until the last 10 minutes.  People, kids especially, know Popeye for eating spinach and beating up Bluto and they had to wait almost two hours to see that.

tjanson 12/11/2008 9:07:32 AM

Jdell...Man-Thing was made for TV so it was not included.  Howard the Duck was terrible but I don't classify Howard as a Hero.

 

Yes Superman Returns was horrible but Superman 4 is hands down, the worst Superman Movie....not even close IMHO
