Previous Post

There were some really close ones in round 1 and some slaughtering:

Batman Begins (2005) d. Superman Returns (2006) 11-1
X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) d. Fantastic Four (2005) 6-6 (Last Stand got to 6 first)
Superman (1978) d. Superman 2 (1980) 7-5
Batman (1989) d. Batman Returns (1992) 8-4

X2: X-Men United (2003) d. Blade (1998) 7-5
Spider-Man 2 (2004) d. Blade II (2002) 11-1
Spider-Man (2002) d. X-Men (2000), 11-1
Spider-Man 3 (2007) d. 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) 9-2

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984) tied Heavy Metal (1981) 1-1
Akira (1988) tied Ghost in the Shell (1995) 2-2
The Crow (1994) d. Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance series (1973) 4-1
Mystery Men (1999) d. Oldboy (2003) 5-2

Ghost World (2001) d. American Splendor (2003) 4-1
The Road to Perdition (2002) d. A History of Violence (2005) 4-3
V for Vendetta (2005) d. From Hell (2001) 8-2
Sin City (2005) d. 300 (2006) 5-4

Because too few people have seen the animated films in the bracket, I'm replacing them with Hellboy and Hulk in round 2:

Batman Begins (2005) vs. X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)

Superman (1978) vs. Batman (1989)

X2: X-Men United (2003) vs. Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Spider-Man (2002) vs. Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Hellboy (2004) vs. Hulk (2003)

The Crow (1994) vs. Mystery Men (1999)

Ghost World (2001) vs. The Road to Perdition (2002)

V for Vendetta (2005) vs. Sin City (2005)



> Batman Begins (2005) vs. X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)

Batman Begins

> Superman (1978) vs. Batman (1989)

Superman, though Batman was truly great and if seeded differently would have been elimninated on my list MUCH later than it is now. It's just that Superman is the greatest comicbook movie of all time for me.

> X2: X-Men United (2003) vs. Spider-Man 3 (2007)

X2

> Spider-Man (2002) vs. Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Spider-Man II limited the cheese.

> Hellboy (2004) vs. Hulk (2003)

Hulk

> The Crow (1994) vs. Mystery Men (1999)

The Crow is another movie I seem to be in the minority in when I say I loved it. So dark! It's the same reason I preferred Batman Returns to Batman.

> Ghost World (2001) vs. The Road to Perdition (2002)

Ghost World

> V for Vendetta (2005) vs. Sin City (2005)

V for Vendetta. As I said, it'll make it far on my list. Probably my favorite movie of 2005 by a pretty long shot.
