Ranking Every Freakin' Superhero Movie Ever Made with Uncle Vinny

Superhero Movies

Uncle Vinny's Comments

I've surely seen more than these 18 superhero movies, but these are the ones I'm certain I've seen and that made enough of an impression to get a ranking. I'm not especially passionate about my ranking except the top half is better than the bottom half, and “Unbreakable” is a piece of shit. For a fantastic movie with a similar theme, see Peter Weir's “Fearless.”

2. Iron Man (2008)

6. Iron Man 2 (2010)

My Comments

I've reached the age where I can see most points of view, particularly when it comes to film. But “Spider-Man” behind “Superman III”? And “Unbreakable” behind “Batman and Robin”? WTF? Admittedly, the first time I saw “Unbreakable,” I could only watch about 20 minutes before losing patience. But a friend encouraged me to check it out again.

And no “Super”, which might the best one of all that's not a Richard Donner film.

I haven't seen SUPER either. I should check it out. Why, I believe it's streaming on Netflix as we speak...

I saw THE SUPER. Not Pesci's best work, sorry to say.
