I completely love both Hellboy films and I'm totally agree with your opinion on Hulk, the film was completely underrated.
I'm not surprise with the 5 worsts, if I have a list like this I'll put them in the worst category as well.

Nebular said...

I ADORE Hellboy as well! :) I thought the sequel was even better than the original. Furthermore, Hellboy himself is so cool and charismatic, it's unbelievable!

I suppose, no one will be surprised with the bottom 5 :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Good list! Blade II would've been higher on mine, but I agree with most of your selections. DareDevil was good, but yes, Elektra sucked! I'd also crown Catwoman with the honors of "Bottom of the Barrel."

Nebular said...

Thanks, Alex. "Blade II" was definitely the best installment in the trilogy and it certainly deserves a spot on my top 15. It may be on last position, but hey, it's the last position of my ALL TIME favorites, which still means it's incredible :) Also, don't forget that this list was sorted by rating. A gave it a 8.75 out of 10, so it ended up on 15th spot. And yes, Elektra was horrendous. :)

Hello, I got here through Greg's blog. And I'm glad I stumbled upon this. By the way I agree with Hellboy 2, but I think you're too tough on the Dark Knight.

I'd love to count you as a follower of my blog, and of course I'll add myself as follower of your blog.

Hi Arion and welcome to CineMarvellous! :) Glad you're a Hellboy fan as well.

Tough on The Dark Knight?! How could you say that? It's on my all time top 15. I thought it was brilliant, but the problem I had with it was that I found it to be ridiculously humorless. It just took itself way too seriously, which I hated.

By the way, I've already followed your blog ;)

Malice said...

I completely agree with you about The Dark Knight, however, I found the original Burton Batman to be just a bit too silly. Now, if only we had a happy medium...and a lot less screaming from Kim Basinger. ;)

J-SON said...

Therefore The Joker's famous phrase "Why so serious?!". Aha.

Great list George! ;)

Nicole✗✗ said...

OOooo Iron Man and Kick Ass = AMAZING! Your so right. Your also right about your worst 05,especially with Electra-yikes!

Nebular said...

Malice, the original Batman film may seems silly and dated for today's standards, but it was great for its time, plus Burton's visual style suits the film perfectly. Yep, Kim Basinger was hysterical :)

Nebular said...

J-son, The Joker was the main star of the show, but even he reckoned the film was way too serious :) Haha! Thanks, mate. Glad you liked it.

Nebular said...

Nicole, yep, both films are amazing. As for my bottom 5, I think Elektra was the least terrible of all. Have you seen Batman & Robin or Captain America? Utterly atrocious!

Sadako said...

Yay for Batman Returns! :) A lot of ppl hate it but I LOVE it!

Nebular said...

Sadako, yay! :) I loved it as well and, for me, it remains the second best Batman film, standing right behind "Batman Begins" :)
