Spiderman 1. I think there is more sentimental value in that then the fact that it was the best movie though.

They are there and surprised no one has mentioned Ninja Turtles, that was based on a comic and not on the cartoon which the cartoon was inspired by the comic. Or Men in Black.

A complete list of the great ones:

Superman ('78)
Old Boy
Ghost World
A History of Violence
Sin City

Then a step down, Persepolis, The Crow, Superman 2, American Splendor, and V For Vendetta are very good.

The ones I love are:

Ghost World
American Splendor
A History of Violence
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

Beyond those, I like the first two movies in Nolan's Batman trilogy, but the third one kind of put a taint on the whole thing for me. I also like the Hellboy movies, although it's more for the visuals than anything else. The recent X-Men reboot (?) was good too, although there are definitely problems I had with it.

1. The Dark Knight Rises
2. Road to Perdition
3. The Dark Knight
4. V for Vendetta
5. Batman Begins
6. Daredevil
7. X-Men: First Class
8. Superman ('78)
9. Hulk ('03)
10. Iron Man

11. Cowboys & Aliens
12. The Avengers
13. The Adventures of Tintin

15. The Rocketeer
16. Batman Forever
17. Superman II
18. Superman Returns
19. Batman ('89)
20. The Amazing Spider-Man ('12)

21. Spider-Man ('02)



Darkman and Unbreakable would both make my top 10 if they were based off of comic books but they aren't. Though Darkman was that rarity where it was a film adapted into a comic book. That's rather neat.


Other Comic Book Based movies that I enjoy:

Thor
Captain America (both versions)
Dredd/Judge Dred (both versions)
All 3 X-Men movies
The Mask
The Spirit
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
The Crow
All 3 Blade movies
A History of Violence
Men in Black 1 & 3
Watchmen
Kick Ass
Wanted
Green Lantern
Elektra
The Phantom
Spawn
30 Days of Night
Surrogates
Mystery Men
The Incredible Hulk
The Punisher ('04)
Fantastic Four 1 & 2


The Hellboy movies are alright. I enjoy them, especially the second one which had incredible visuals.


Chronicle would make the list if it were based off a comic book, but it's not.


Worst Comic Based Movies:

Catwoman
Steel
Ghost Rider
Batman & Robin
300

Can't think of anymore of the bad ones. But I'll edit my list when I remember them.
