Rank the Marvel Studios Movies
« on: May 10, 2010, 07:57:54 am »
With 'Iron Man 2' hitting theaters, I've started to look back at all the Marvel Studios films and realized that Marvel dominates the super hero film genre: 28 films in only 12 years! Damn, that beats out the number of Bond films and craps all over the DC comics films (roughly 15 in the last 60 years and only half of them being good).

So my question is this: Where do you rank the Marvel Studios films that you've seen?

For an idea of what films I'm talking about, check out the Marvel Studios wiki page or go by anything released after and including Blade (1998).

My list by a 10 point rating system:

10/10: X-Men 2, Spider-Man 2
9/10: Iron Man 2, Spider-Man
8/10: Iron Man, X-Men
7/10: Spider-Man 3, The Incredible Hulk, Daredevil: Director's Cut
6/10: Hulk, X-Men: The Last Stand, Daredevil
5/10: Hulk, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, X-Men Origins: Wolverine
4/10: Fantastic Four, The Punisher (2004)
3/10: Elektra
2/10: Ghost Rider
1/10: nothing yet

Yes, I'll admit I liked Daredevil. It's a guilty pleasure of mine. Michael Clarke Duncan and Jon Favreau plus the origin story are my favorite bits. I also liked the imagery they used for "seeing sounds" and thought the action was entertaining. The Director's Cut fixes many problems the theatrical film had and is a recommended rental for those who like superhero movies.

You must be kidding (or on crack) to think that X-Men 1 or 2 are 1/10 films. Though I would agree that Wolverine and The Last Stand were garbage.

10/10 - (none)
9/10 - (none)
8/10 - (none)
7/10 - (none)
6/10 - (none)
5/10 - (none)
4/10 - Spider-Man
3/10 - Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, X-Men
2/10 - Iron Man
1/10 - Hulk, X-Men: The Last Stand, Ghost Rider, Elektra, The Punisher (either one), Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Daredevil, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men 2, Captain America

I haven't seen Iron Man 2, but if the reviews are any indication, it would most likely be going in the 2 or 1 out of 10 slot.

Looks like 'Kick Ass' IS technically a Marvel film! It's owned by Icon Comics. Per the internets: "Icon Comics is an imprint of Marvel Comics for creator-owned titles."

I haven't seen 'Kick A' or 'Kick A@$' (as the theater marquee and censored poster named it respectively). I'll definitely rent it though.

I wouldn't say I love the X-Men (don't read the comics, never owned a game) but I admit that the first two were quality superhero movies. Definitely not 1/10's.

Fabio, I'm interested to know what other films make you fall asleep. Just to get where you're coming from.

btw, your name is Fabio, correct? Just askin' as we're on a first name basis.  :afroman:

My top 10 would probably be:

1.  Spider-man 2
2.  X-men 2
3.  Spider-man
4.  Iron Man 2
5.  Iron Man
6.  Blade 2
7.  Incredible Hulk
8.  Spider-man 3
9.  Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer  (solid action, and I thought Chris Evans did a great job as the human torch.
10. Daredevil: Director's Cut

Me calling you Barry really got on your nerves hey?  :P  Yes, you are correct about my name.

Usually really bland films. It's not very common, but like catastrophe films, for example. Thing with X-Men is really that I did not knew anything about them before I watched the movies, and after them I still wasn't interested a shit about them. The action is much too dry, the dialog bland and innocuous, the whole story pretty much sucks.. I just did not found them fun. And yes I DID fell asleep, I'm not joking about it.

Ha ha, no, if I got annoyed at peeps calling me by "Barry", I wouldn't have this silly username. :)
Actually, I was halfway through typing "Crackdude" and realized how absurd it is that I'm typing that as a proper name, so I told myself "if I can find your real name within one Google search, then it's not creepy internet stalking". Luckily, I found your secret identity!

Btw, according to Google you are a model hunk and I am a Korean swordmaster living in Texas. I smell new ideas for the next 'King of Fighters'!

Np on the X-men. I just get annoyed when people say they fell asleep during a movie when they in fact did not. It's like saying "I vomited while watching 'Saw'" when I actually was mildly aroused.

Well I'm pretty open on people know my real name on the internet. What will "you" do? Call my name to death?  :afroman:

Fabio is the name of that model hunk that used to appear in those erotic women books, popular in the 90s!
My mother tells me that she got the idea off a Brazilian singer though.

Yes, and I do tend to hyperbole a lot as you may notice around here, but there are things I actually fell asleep on.. Like Halo 2 and the X-Man movies. One of them I was at my girlfriend's place, and she was meh and this friend of ours was loving every bit of it and I was like "god this bald guy is really tripping balls" and zzZzzzZzz
