I think I've enjoyed most of the comic movies that have come out in recent years.
I think theres been a few comic characters that I've wanted the movie to do well,but they just fell flat.
DareDevil; I enjoy this character,but the movie was bland.
Ghost Rider; never was a fan,but thought it could be a good movie,but again it fell way short.

I think I was always a big fan of Spider-Man always used to love the little skits on Sesame Street when I was a kid.. I also enjoyed Green Latern and Green Arrow,though I did'nt read much of their comics I enjoyed what I did read.
I will always have a special place in my mind for 'The Crow' it was one of the darkest,but yet enjoyable comic stories/movies I've seen.

Here's how I'd rate it against the recent crop of comic book movies that I've seen:

Iron Man: A+
Spider-Man 2: A+
300: A+
Watchmen: A
Spider-Man: A
The Incredible Hulk: B+
The Hulk: B
X-Men Origins: Wolverine: C+
X-Men 2: C
X-Men: C-
Spider-Man 3: D
X-Men 3: D- (Beast being in the film and Cyclops getting killed are the only reasons why it doesn't get an F)
Daredevil FFF
I would put X-Men 2 over Wolverine...
I thought Night Crawler made that movie.
haven't seen either of the Hulk movies. Daredevil gets an F in my book. Spawn too.
I would love to see a gritty 'Lobo" movie

AGREED!!! Returns was horrid... even though I don't find fault in Roth and Spacey. Bad script. Bad directing..

Spacey was a fantastic Luther.

Fixed.

The only thing Kevin Spacey needs to work on is his directing...

Albino Alligator was BAD....

I knew that movie was in trouble when I saw that metrosexual actor they got to play Superman. I didn't bother to watch it in theaters and waited until it had been on DVD for a while. Even though Mark told me not to waste my money renting it, I had heard from a couple of other friends that it was one of the greatest superhero movies ever made. So, I rented it and.... Mark was right, it was terrible.

I didn't see it in the theatre but a friend of mine said it was AWESOME, so I bought it. I was greatly disappointed. Bryan Singer should stay away from super hero movies for a while.

I don't really understand why some people seem to love it so much. I don't know if it means anything, but all the people who recommended it to me were diehard Batman fans.

Maybe just the fact that Superman was back made them love it?

Btw, did anyone else notice that Kal-El was turned into the perfect Liberal Savior in that movie? That's what really ruined it for me.

Good point!
I think my buddy wanted to like it SO much that his mind translated all the bad into good.
