I admit it I am a BATGEEK!  Batman is my guy as most of you know by now.   But today is the anniversary of the reasons I got into collecting Batman Comics and Batman Items!

Today is the 10th anniversary of the Premier of “Batman the Dark Knight” To me the best Superhero movie of all time.  Heath Ledgers portrayal of The Joker is now considered one of the great performances of all time.  The story itself of the mob of Gotham uniting to kill The Batman.  The storyline of Harvey Dent and how he became Two Face.  The only negative I could even think of about this movie is that when Christian Bale speaks in his Batman growl, it is a little hard to understand.

I say this is my favorite Super Hero movie but to be honest this might be my favorite movie of all time.   I consider it a classic.

Here is a list of my favorite Super Hero movies:

  1. Batman , The Dark Knight
  2. Captain America: Winter Soldier
  3.  Black Panther
  4. Avengers
  5. Spiderman 2
  6. Guardians of the Galaxy
  7. Batman Begins
  8. Logan
  9. X-Men The last stand
  10. Wonder Woman

7 out of my top 10 are Marvel Movies and that might surprise some because I almost exclusively read DC titles.  WHY?  Marvel Movies are just better movies but DC books are better.   The DC movies for the most part don’t put in the element of fun that the Marvel Movies do.   Now they can take that too far like in Thor Ragnor Rock which I did not like.

A young man was visiting on Monday night, he had been on a LDS mission and had just returned home and he asked me which movies he should watch and he was surprised when I told him not to bother with Ragnor Rock.   He said his friends had told him that it was one of the best.  Different strokes as they say.

So since I shared my Top to 10, which super hero movie didn’t like.   Ragnor Rock, and the 1st Hulk movie, directed by Ang Lee, I had free tickets to that one and told my wife that if I had paid for that I would have demanded a refund, that movie was awful.  I would love to see what the guys and Mystery Science Theater would do that film.

I guess I love the superhero movies because they supply some escapism, and fantasy to my life.  I mean who wouldn’t want to have the gadgets of Batman, fly like Superman, shrink like Antman or just to say HULK SMASH one time.

So if I can’t be Batman, I will take some of the Batman character traits and hope I can be a better man.  Those being, standing up for what is right, calling for justice in an unjust world and last but not least pretending that my black car is THE BATMOBILE!
