  1. My overall Top 10 is:

    1) The Dark Knight Rises
    2) The Dark Knight
    3) The Mask
    4) Batman
    5) Road to Perdition
    6) Batman Forever
    7) Iron Man 3
    8) Spider – Man 3
    9) Superman 3
    10) Batman & Robin
    Special mention for Daredevil and Spawn.

    I know that probably you opened your eyes wide when you read Batman & Robin, but believe me: if you value it as a live action cartoon, it’s a very well done movie.
    As for my special mentions, I love these characters so much that I really couldn’t exclude their live action movies. Both the Daredevil movie and the Spawn one are very underrated, by the way.
    I don’t know why I tend to appreciate 3rd chapters more than the others, I think it’s a pure coincidence. What do you think about my chart?

    • “What do you think about my chart?”

      1. I’m shocked that Batman Begins is nowhere on it.

      2. Happy to see that you like the Mask as well.

      3. More surprises with Spider-Man 3 and Superman 3 over the other entries in each respective series.

      4. I personally have never seen the Road to Perdition but I take it that it is really good to earn 5th place.

      5. As for liking the 3rd chapters the most, I’m the opposite in that regards. It stretches to other franchises as well (LOTR – liked the second one the best, Transformers – liked the 1st one, etc.). I can’t think of a threequel that I liked the best in any trilogy. Yes, sometimes they are better than the sequels though…

      Thanks for sharing!

      • “I’m shocked that Batman Begins is nowhere on it.” That movie had a very nice atmosphere, but I can’t recall a single detail of its plot. I thought “It’s a good movie, but it didn’t remain engraved on my memory, so I think I won’t include it.”
        “Thanks for sharing!” Thank you as well for your replies! : )

        • “That movie had a very nice atmosphere, but I can’t recall a single detail of its plot.”
          Bruce Wayne being trained by Ducard? Ducard being revealed as the real Ra’s al Ghul? Scarecrow poisoning the Narrows? Rachel getting poisoned and the chase scene between the Cops and the Tumbler? I could go on and on. Love this movie…but to each his own. 🙂
