Better than I expected going in, and it's now one of my favorite movies of probably the last ten/fifteen years.

  ohmy.gif  Really?! It was better than I expected too but I can think of several hero films alone that I think were better (Watchmen, XMEN 2, Xmen: First Class, both Batfilms, Spidey 2, Iron Man 1, Thor, and there might even be a few more that have escaped me)

Oooh, no - sorry. Not what I meant. Definitely not one of the *best* movies of the last 10-15 years, but it's one of my *favorite* movies of the last 10-15 years. I don't see a ton of movies to begin with, and I'm sure there are better movies out there that I haven't seen.

I could have explained that better.

I *hated* Watchmen laugh.gif
I know, I'm weird. Mid-30's comic book guy for the past 20 years, I'm supposed to love it, but I just don't. Didn't like the comic and really didn't like the movie. My wife, who has read probably a dozen comics in her whole life, thought it was great (both the TPB that I've got and the movie).

X-Men 2... I can see that. Same with First Class, which I thought was pretty stellar. Spidey 2 was great, Iron Man 1 is probably my #1. I did think Cap was better than Thor, which suffered somewhat from having him powerless for so long and from casting Portman, who I thought wasn't good for the role.

Dark Knight was really good, but Begins was pretty much a B+ film for me and I did think Cap was better.

But for "one of my favorites in the last 10-15 years"... in no order at all and only counting comics flicks:

Cap
Iron Man 1
X-Men 1, 2 and First Class
Dark Knight
Spider-Man 1 and 2 (more 1 than 2 by virtue of being the first live-action Spidey worth a damn)
Sin City
Red

The Pianist, directed by Roman Polanksi and adapted from the book of the same name. I'm also reading the book. biggrin.gif

It's not as powerful and hard-hitting as Schindler's List, in my opinion, but still powerful. Adrien Brody was amazing as Wladek (Wladyslaw) Szpilman. heart.gif

"Secretariat." A little too Disney-fied for my taste, but still a very good movie. And the race scenes were excellent. They got a lot of the details exactly right.

Casino Royale. I think it's the best Bond film ever and Daniel Craig and Eva Green are perfect in it.

If you're not up on horse racing or Secretariat in particular, check out the YouTube clips of the three actual Triple Crown races before seeing the movie. You will gain a whole new appreciation for how they planned and filmed those race scenes, and how they tried to copy the actual races as closely as possible.

It was okay I guess. Before that? The Big Lebowski.
