TOP 10 COMIC BOOK SUPERHERO MOVIES, in order of best to worst (not counting The Incredibles — because it wasn’t based on a comic book and it’s animated — but otherwise it would have been number 2 on this list):

  1. Superman: The Movie
  2. Spider-Man
  3. Batman
  4. Superman II
  5. Spider-Man 2
  6. Spider-Man 3
  7. X-Men
  8. Hulk
  9. Batman Returns

The point being: There aren’t a lot of great comic book superhero movies. So even though 10 gazillion people watched Spider-Man 3 this weekend and 5 gazillion of them liked it and 5 gazillion of them disliked it, it still makes it squarely into the top 10 and dominates as a series.
