Movies are one of my favourite topics. I own a lot of DVD’s and Blu-Ray’s (too many actually). I am so addicted to movies, it is one of my favourite things to talk about to people. It is a great ice breaker too. People are always eager to talk about movies.
So I decided to throw it out there. I sent out the message to the gang here at Comic Book Daily, and posted it on my Facebook and Twitter, for everybody’s 5 favourite comic book movies. It didn’t have to be the best movie, just their favourites. I was very surprised by the answers.
I received 23 replies, and here is the list of everybody’s favourite movies.
|V for Vendetta||4|
|Scott Pilgrim vs the World||4|
|X Men First Class||2|
|Punisher (Tom Jane)||2|
|History Of Violence||2|
|Road To Perdition||1|
|Josie and the Pussycats||1|
|Iron Man 3||1|
|Green Lantern First Flight||1|
|Dark Knight Rises||1|
|Captain America The First Avenger||1|
|Batman Mask of the Phantasm||1|
I had no doubt that Avengers would be #1 on my list. It is by far one of the best Comic Book Movies ever made. People absolutely love that movie.
There are some that I was very surprised that made the list. Punisher Warzone is an OK movie in my books. I enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t class it as one of my favourite 5. TMNT is another one I was surprised about. I never really think of it being a comic book movie, because I associate the property with the action figures and animated series. But as you can see on the list, it was a popular answer.
I was also glad to see some of the animated movies make it onto the list as well. I thought Batman Mask Of The Phantasm would have ranked higher on the list as well. I love that movie, but it didn’t even come to mind when I was submitting my 5 favourites.
I think my next poll will be 5 least favourite Comic Book Movies. There is no doubt in my mind that some of the favourite movies on this list, are some people’s least favourites.
If you didn’t have a chance, have your say. Submit your 5 favourite movies below. Everybody here at Comic Book Daily would like to see what they are. And for future polls please follow me on Twitter. I throw out poll questions from time to time. I like hearing what is on your mind.
