I just finished watching Thor upon Blue-Ray and I enjoyed that a lot. Who would have at any time thought that a live-action Thor movie would ever be made. Especially if you had ever seen the Thor appearance in one of the Incredible Hulk TV movies yrs ago. The concept of Green Lantern rocks ! but I never thought that a movie would be made. Thus while I'm waiting for a live-action version of the Legion of Super-Heroes I thought that I would mull over what I believe are the finest films in the ever-increasing genre of super-hero videos. I've limited myself to live-action films even though some with the animated stuff is really awesome. I think it would be cheating to mix animated films with the live-action films. I've also limited the number of "best" films to 10 otherwise I quickly venture over into the dominion of Return of the Swamp Thing and Steel. From the tender I go.

10. The Rocketeer (1991)

Any movie with Jennifer Connelly in it can't be too bad unless of course that movie is Hulk. The Rocketeer perfectly captured the look and spirit from the Dave Stevens comic e book. Super-Heroes and sbo Nazi's usually go well together, like almond butter and jelly.

on the lookout for. The Incredible Hulk (2008)

Not to be confused with "Hulk" which was mentioned above, this 08 soft re-boot of the Hulk franchise is actually really good. Whilst a sequel this film moves forward without invalidating anything from the previous film. The movie explores the fragile psyche of Bruce Banner; mirrors the best of the Bill Bixby television series and has amazing (no pun intended) struggle scenes with the Abomination. Plus the love story with Betty Ross is kept to a minimum. What more can anyone ask for within a super-hero movie? The only thing I could think of would have been a been a cameo from Wolverine.

8. Blade (1998)

I didn't know a lot about Cutter when I saw this movie. I just still don't know a whole daylights of a lot about Blade the comic book personality but Blade the movie excellent hero is awesome. Martial arts, swords and vampires. So amazing its scary.

7. Batman (1966)

Sure it's cheesy; sure Adam West is a little pudgy; sure Cesar Peregrino would not shave his mustache but this movie is just fun. Has there have you been a better Penguin or Riddler as played by Burgess Meredith and Frank Gorshin respectively? For that matter Lee Meriwether is #2 on the list of greatest Catwomen behind Julie Newmar and above Michelle Pfeiffer. In this movie we certainly see the classic Batmobile but also the Bat-Copter, Bat-Bike and Bat-Boat. We also learn that Batman provides anti-shark repellent in his tool belt. This movie would make the top ten list only for the scene with Batman running around the pier with a bomb in his hands.

6th. Superman II (1980)

Fifteen minutes of this movie is probably the biggest super hero movie available. The fight with Superman as opposed to General Zod, Ursa and Non over Metropolis still stands up to this day. If only Rich Donner had been allowed to finish the movie. We would have been spared much of the camp (this is usually bad camp unlike the excellent camp in the Batman movie) added by Richard Lester. The cellophane "S"; teleporting Kryptonians in the Fortress of Solitude and the mind-altering "super-kiss" at the end of the movie (as if Superman didn't curently have enough powers someone believed it to be necessary to add a few more) unfortunately forces me to hold this movie out of my top five.

5. Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Simply a good movie. No longer bogged straight down by the requisite origin storyline Peter Parker can go and fight crime seeing that Spider-Man. The scene while using passengers on the monorail guarding Spider-Man chokes me up a bit inside. "Spider-Man" probably would have made this list nevertheless no matter how much I liked Willem DaFoe as Norman Osborn I really disliked saving money Goblin costume in that movie.

4. Iron Man (2008)

Robert Downey Jr. playing a narcissistic self-absorbed self-destrucive person with a substance abuse trouble... awesome casting. In one video Iron Man went out of B-list hero whom nobody but a comic book nerd had ever heard of to a true cultural icon and being featured prominently in each Marvel kid's toy right next to Spider-Man. Option goal for all of these movies (see Green Lantern above). Iron Man not only accomplished it but it is a very very good movie on top of it. The only drawback to the entire movie is definitely the closing fight scene between Iron Man and Obadiah Stane. I feel like the good guy has to fight a bigger, badder version of himself is done to death. For example it absolutely was done in the same year in Marvel's other film the Incredible Hulk. Ultimately, I believed the movie was more interesting when it focused on Tony Stark instead of Iron Man. It designed for a good movie but I'm just not sure if that is a neat thing for a "super hero" motion picture so Iron Man simply makes it to #4 in the list.

3. The Sunset Knight (2008)

This motion picture made a bazillion us dollars. Heath Ledger was amazing as the Joker. It's a fantastic movie. It's merely so long (2 1/2 hours) and Christian Bale can be screaming throughout the entire video. I've always imagined Batman to have a stoic coolness... like Clint Eastwood. Any complaints I've about this movie, however , will be quickly mitigated by a Batman and Robin flashback.

2 . Captain America (2011)

What did I say before regarding super heroes and Nazis? Well it's even more authentic when the super hero is certainly dressed up in an American flag. The Nazis don't stand a chance. I loved everything about this movie. Chris Evans was very convincing seeing that Captain America and as Dorrie Rogers. Even the Red Skull didn't seem cheesy. This all and the Cosmic Cube as well, I loved this film. Captain America: The Primary Avenger is a great movie and well deserving of my #2 spot. There is only one film that could beat it out.

#1. Superman (1978)

This is it. The Grand-daddy of them all. It might not be the first super-hero movie but it is definitely the first of all movie that you think of as you think about a super hero video. Where Chris Evans was convincing in the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America, Christopher Reeve IS Superman as well as he delivers the defined portrayal of Clark Kent. Others have played the role before and after Reeve nevertheless none have worn the cape more convincingly or confidently. Christopher Reeve truly made me believe that if a man could fly it would be him.
