Marvel's The Avengers 2012,  PG-13)
Marvel's The Avengers
BEST SUPERHERO MOVIE EVER! The Avengers has nonstop action that will keep your eyes burning because you just can't seem to blink! It also has nonstop humor that the major and minor characters provide! This is one of major super-nerd Joss Whedon's best works!
Iron Man 2008,  PG-13)
Iron Man
Did you know Robert Downey Jr. had a period where his career was going nowhere because of a drug arrest? Well, this movie, with it's sense of action, effects, humor, and superhero-ness, was his major comeback! Downey Jr. was great in this!
Batman & Mr. Freeze - SubZero 1998,  Unrated)
Batman & Mr. Freeze - SubZero
This thing looks so awesome.
X2: X-Men United 2003,  PG-13)
X2: X-Men United
X2 has great action, great acting, great battle scenes, and great special effects! Plus it has Nightcrawler! I thought they rushed Wolverine's back story, though. And there's not enough of Cyclops. People say this is better than the first, I don't think so.
X-Men: First Class 2011,  PG-13)
X-Men: First Class
First Class was different from the previous X-Men movies.
Pros: Great special effects and fight scenes, good story telling, and a background on the characters that not many knew. Cons: The movie is intended to be a reboot in a way, so there were innacuracies from the rest of the series. The biggest example is how there were scenes in X@ and 3 with the old Xavier walking in flashbacks. However, this movie shows the young Xavier losing his legs. Plus, the old Zavier and old Magneto were still working together in flashbacks in X3, but young Magneto split with Xavier in this movie. I do NOT like inaccuracies, but this was a good movie. Plus, Wolverine's scene was fantastic!
Batman 1989,  PG-13)
Even if you don't like Batman, at least watch this for the Joker, whom Jack Nicholson is fantastic at! Great acting from him and Keaton make this a freaky film.
Spider-Man 2 2004,  PG-13)
Spider-Man 2
Spidey 2 is mostly a good movie
1. Acting is good.
2. Character development was improved upon.
3. A level of weirdness in certain parts.
4. The music was OK. Not one of Danny Elfman's best, but OK. And it fit the movie.
A. Again, Spidey doesn't have the sarcasm that he's good with in the comics.
B. The effects needed some work.
C. The scary scenes with the screaming were unneeded.
This was a good one. Definitely better than the first, but not weirder. I like weird movies.
X-Men 2000,  PG-13)
X-Men, which, in my opinion, is the best Marvel comic series because of the suspenseful and awesome story and extremely detailed character adaptation and backgrounds, was molded into one of the best Marvel movie series out there with plenty of movies still being spawned at Fox studios. And this is the movie that starts it!
The character adaptation is as good as in the comics, and the special effects are pretty awesome. The battle scenes are also really cool! The movie wasn't ENTIRELY true to the comics, not very true story-wise, not character-wise. Mystique isn't naked in the comics (but the new look ain't nuttin' ta' sneeze at!) And Wolverine isn't very bulky in this movie, but he was a freakin' Ferrigno in the comics! But that doesn't dumb down the movie much because Hugh jackman does a good job as Wolverine.
X-Men features some of the most well known mutants, but I won't tell you the not as important mutants. I will tell you there is obviously Wolverine, the main man; Cyclops, the guy with the glasses; Storm, electrifying and sexy (Halle Berry); Rogue, the runaway; Professor Xavier, the guy who's mind is so powerful that his hair fell off; Jean Grey, the other psychic; Mystique, who gets a new touch with her appearance (naked and scaly, the boobs are covered in scales); and Magneto, the main X-Men villain! Seeing and pointing out other major and minor X-Men characters is also fun for the X-Men fanatics.
Watch X-Men, and you can not deny that this movie is very well a superhero movie even non-superhero fans will enjoy.
Spider-Man 2002,  PG-13)
Generally a good Spidey-style movie. Not enough of Spidey's sarcasm, though. And the special effects were a little cheesy. But the cast was good, and the story was pretty freaky. Not to mention the action scenes were pretty cool.
Batman Returns 1992,  PG-13)
Batman Returns
Not as good as the Nicholson one, but this movie still has great acting and the freaky Burton style touch. I've seen this one multiple times, and my personal favorite thing about Batman Returns is Pfeiffer's freaky Catwoman role. Not for her looks, but she does a good job.
X-Men Origins - Wolverine 2009,  PG-13)
X-Men Origins - Wolverine
As an action movie, this was pretty well done. Good acting, great special effects, and a story that's least good for those who can't find the major inaccuracies from the comics. I enjoyed this movie, but I really wish they would just do as the comics say.
Iron Man 2 2010,  PG-13)
Iron Man 2
The same major elements that made the first one good: the humor, the superhero, the Marvel touch, the effects, the action, and most importantly: the Downey. A little weaker than the first, though.
Hulk 2003,  PG-13)
Funky, twisted, but good movie. The plot twists are great. And the battle scenes are AWESOME! Good acting really helps the movie. Danny Elfman's score brings some creepy into the movie. And Lou Ferrigno does the Hulk once again! Even if it's only the voice. And the comic book camera style is very fitting. I also like how Hulk doesn't say much.
But the problem with the movie is that you don't see enough Hulk Smashing and you get a little too much chit-chatting which can bore people. This movie may also have some mild Hollywood cheese.
But this movie is still very enjoyable. I highly recommend it. But don't expect the whole movie to be a smash-fest.
The Incredible Hulk 2008,  PG-13)
The Incredible Hulk
Better than the original. More smashing, great battle scenes, and (if you know your Hulk) something that leaves the franchise open for a sequel with a villain you may know! The liberal ending was pointless, though. They just wanted Abomination to be in another movie, so they chose a clearly liberal ending battle scene where Hulk doesn't kill Abomination. But the rest of the movie is great! Just like the first one, I highly recommend this one!
Hellboy 2004,  PG-13)
Thor 2011,  PG-13)
This movie has almost exactly what you would expect if Thor actually did get banished to Earth and meets someone who studies storms and the sky. Plus there's a great line in the movie involving the word "sustenance."
Batman: Under the Red Hood 2010,  PG-13)
Batman: Under the Red Hood
batman, in my opinion, is the best of DC. And since the animated ones tend to do better than the live-action ones, I'd like to see this.
Batman: The Movie 1966,  PG)
Batman: The Movie
This has to be one of the best "so-bad-it's-good" movies ever! If you pay attention (or not) you'll find everything Batman has is labeled. I mean EVERYTHING. And don't get me started on the answers to the riddles. In this movie, you have to wonder just how many outtakes this movie has, because it must have been super, super hard for them to keep straight faces!
Superman Returns 2006,  PG-13)
Superman Returns
Another good Bryan Singer film. I'm sure this movie the best in the series. Some good action, good humor from the brilliant actor Kevin Spacey, and a good story. But a major element in the story confuses me on how people still haven't figured out Clark Kent is Superman. But overall, it was so good I saw it twice. And I'd watch gladly watch it again if I ever felt like I needed a DC movie.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2012,  PG-13)
The Amazing Spider-Man
Apparently, this movie's closer to the actual comic. But it wasn't great. It was generally weaker than the original trilogy.
X-Men: The Last Stand 2006,  PG-13)
X-Men: The Last Stand
An OK movie, but they ended a lot of elements in the trilogy which just should never have been ended by killing important characters. I also saw the mutant Calypso in the credits, but not in the movie at all! Come on! At least Mystique will be in movies that take place before the first two.
Another thing: What is with Storm's hair?
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer 2007,  PG)
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Though it may be more childish than it should be, there was definitely more action and story in this one than the first.
Superman 1978,  PG)
Overall, Superman is pretty good. I wasn't a big fan of the acting, though it wasn't bad. But Richard Donner is usually good at movies. The movies a bit too long, though.
Fantastic Four 2005,  PG-13)
Fantastic Four
The problem for me about this movie is not that it was childish, but that it bored me a little. It just wasn't the best superhero movie I have seen. There wasn't enough suspense, and Dr, Doom wasn't played out as well as he could've been. The acting was OK. But overall, it's not memorable. It could've used more action and a little less hokeyness.
Hancock 2008,  PG-13)
This movie has good special effects and some good humor. And a couple plot twists were good. And the hokey elements can be seen as either good or bad. It just depends on what you like.
But ultimately, the movie doesn't explain enough. And it's not like an average superhero movie: no actual super villain, no actual plot, and not enough detail about Hancock how he became an "a--hole."
Batman & Robin 1997,  PG-13)
Batman & Robin
Adam West's Batman is pretty bad, but this pushes the limits of disbelief. The first twenty minutes were so bad, I had to laugh! Not only that, but the plot and storyline completely leave out any sense of previous Batman darkness for an enormous amount of colors bringing flair to a childish display of learning about teamwork. And despite the all-star cast, the casting was horrible. Arnold was too campy as Frieze, and Uma Thurman was like a cartoon character when she played Pamela/Poison Ivy. This is the absolute worst of the Batman movies.
X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014,  PG-13)
X-Men: Days of Future Past
In an age where realistic special effects are too common to impress with, X-Men: Days of Future Past still finds ways to amaze with SFX. Not t mention, the character development is top-notch.

I had a feeling X-Men 7 would e their best one. I mean, Days of Future past is the most famous X-Men storyline to the best of my knowledge, and it would probably be had to screw up. And even if there are differences between the comic and the film, the crew didn't screw this up.
Iron Man 3 2013,  PG-13)
Iron Man 3
Iron Man isn't my favorite hero, but I'll be a little surprised if people don't like the third one.
