X-Men: The Last Stand

July 9, 2006 @ 6:08am

I took Niki, Jack and my whole team to see X-Men III at the end of the last CodeJam. I didn't want to blog about the movie immediately because I couldn't tell if I liked it or not.

To me, the giant battle scenes between hundreds of mutants made it tough to connect to any one character.

Kelsey Grammar's Beast was a highlight in both the combat and non-combat scenes. That was unexpected. Only Frasier could deliver Hank McCoy's trademark line "Oh my stars and garters" believably.

I was talking to my favorite blog designer last week and I mentioned that my favorite comic book superhero movies are the first two X-Men and Spider-Man films. He doesn't like Tobey Maguire, so it makes loving the Spider-Man films impossible for him. I told him that I didn't hate Daredevil, but I was hard-pressed to come up with a worse comic book superhero movie. Then I remembered The Hulk.

Here are my rankings:
  1. Spider-Man II
  2. X-Men II
  3. Spider-Man
  4. X-Men
  5. Batman
  6. Superman II
  7. Superman
  8. Batman Begins
  9. Superman Returns
  10. X-Men III
  11. Fantastic Four
  12. Batman Returns
  13. Daredevil
  14. Batman Forever
  15. Batman & Robin
  16. Superman III
  17. Superman IV
  18. The Hulk
What movies did I miss? How would you rank them?

Most likely if I left one off it was because I haven't seen it (like Hellboy, The Punisher and Elektra) or didn't consider them superheroes (Flash Gordon and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
