To you, what are the most overrated and underrated comic book movies?
Spider-man 2-Spider-man 1 got a little too sappy for it's own good, Spider-man 2 had an overkill of sappiness. It only got far, far worse with Spider-man 3 (worst comic book movie ever IMO). Spider-man 2 is a decent film, but I list it here, because a lot of people love it.
What I didn't like about SM2, major spoilers:
Doc Ock should have never turned good. Why did they use the same Mary Jane in peril plot as last time? Peter stopping the wedding and him revealing to Mary Jane that he was Spider-man was sappiness overkill (along with Doc Ock turning good)
Spider-man 3- Yeah, a lot of people hate it, but it is still overrated, some how it manages to have a 6.1 on IMDB. I could list everything I hated about it, but it would take hours.
V for Vendetta-This was actually a good movie, but it isn't great like many people claim.
Superman Returns-Many people trash this film, but I love it. It isn't perfect, but it works as a fitting return for Superman. Now bring on Superman:Man of Steel, which if it ever starts filming will hopefully be perfect.
Batman Returns-Tied with Begins for the best Batman movie. This isn't the most accurate adaption, but even Begins wasn't 100% accurate. I absolutely love this films. Danny Devito and Michelle Pfeiffer deserved Oscar nods at the very least. Christopher Walken is fantastic too. Danny Elfman gives one of his very best scores. The art direction is possibly Tim Burton's best. The sets are fantastic. The Penguin is actually a far more interesting character than he is in the comics. Catwoman (in this film) is one of the great morally ambigious characters in cinema. This film is dark, surreal, dreamlike, tragic, and almost poetic. I actually remember seeing this film in the theatre when I was 6 years old, it's one of the few movies from my very young youth that made a lasting impression. This is perhaps the darkest and most grown-up comic book film, that wasn't rated R.
