Now I Know – Your Favourite Comic Movies

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.

CBD Movie Poll
Pie chart reflects the top 20 answers. Slice #21 represents movies with only 1 vote.

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.

It’s one of those forgotten comic book movies. Right there in between Superman IV and Swamp Thing with Adrianne Barbeau.

Top 5 favourite comic films:
The Dark Knight
Conan the Barbarian*

I had a hard time picking a fifth film. There were several films I wanted to add (Unbreakable, Super) but didn’t since they weren’t “comic” movies even though comics are an important theme. Same applies to Conan, but I honestly believe the popularity of the character at the time was due to the comics rather than the pulp fiction stories.
