    Default Favourite suoerhero films

    Ok, here's the poll. All films receiving multiple mentions are listed. Cast your votes, gentlebeings.
    And now I'll tell you what's against us, an art that's lived for centuries. Go through the years and you will find what's blackened all of history. Against us is the law with its immensity of strength and power - against us is the law! Police know how to make a man a guilty or an innocent. Against us is the power of police! The shameless lies that men have told will ever more be paid in gold - against us is the power of the gold! Against us is racial hatred and the simple fact that we are poor.

    Out the door
    Just in time
    Head down the 4-0-5
    Gotta meet the new boss by 8 am
    The phone rings in the car
    The wife is working hard
    She's running late tonight again
    Well I know what I've been told
    You gotta work to feed the soul
    But I can't do this all on my own

    No I'm
    I'm no superman
    I'm no superman
    And you've got your love online
    You think you're doing fine
    But you're just plugged into the wall
    And that deck of tarot cards
    Won't get you very far
    There ain't no hand to break your fall
    Well I know what I've been told
    You gotta know just when to fold
    But I can't do this all on my own
    I know

    I'm no superman
    I'm no superman
    (That's right)
    You've crossed the finish line
    Won the race but you lost your mind
    Was it worth it after all?
    I need you here with me
    Cause love is all we need
    Just take a hold of the hand that breaks the fall
    Well I know what I've been told
    Gotta break free to break the mold
    But I can't do this all on my own
    No I can't do this all on my own

    I'm no
    Then I'm no
    Superman
    I'm no superman
    I'm no superman
    Someday we'll be together
    I'm no superman
    Someday
    Someday we'll be together
    Someday

    I'm no superman

    "Superman's Song"

    Tarzan wasn't a ladies' man
    He'd just come along and scoop 'em up under his arm
    Like that, quick as a cat in the jungle
    But Clark Kent, now there was a real gent
    He would not be caught sittin' around in no
    Junglescape, dumb as an ape doing nothing

    [Chorus:]
    Superman never made any money
    For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
    And sometimes I despair the world will never see
    Another man like him

    Hey Bob, Supe had a straight job
    Even though he could have smashed through any bank
    In the United States, he had the strength, but he would not
    Folks said his family were all dead
    Their planet crumbled but Superman, he forced himself
    To carry on, forget Krypton, and keep going

    Tarzan was king of the jungle and Lord over all the apes
    But he could hardly string together four words: "I Tarzan, You Jane."

    Sometimes when Supe was stopping crimes
    I'll bet that he was tempted to just quit and turn his back
    On man, join Tarzan in the forest
    But he stayed in the city, and kept on changing clothes
    In dirty old phonebooths till his work was through
    And nothing to do but go on home.

    To say that Batman is not a super human would be correct. But that's not the word in questio, and his performance as a hero is certainly considered super.

    What about Green Lanterns ring?

    ...wait, why am I biting at this? It's a comic book character and you're going on and on about what makes a superhero. Sheesh!

    The only movies that I've seen on the list were The Incredibles and The Dark Knight, the latter had a thiller feel to it.

    I feel inclined to watch the other movies on the list.

    Superhero moves are adding more and more other genres to their film. Ant-Man (great, funny movie) was a heist/comedy as much as a superhero movie. Guardians of the Galaxy was sci-fi/comedy as well as superhero.
    Dark Knight had as much horror as thriller in it.

    I kinda want to see the two Hellboy movies since Guillermo Del Toro is a talented filmmaker, Pan's Labyrinth was a well done film.

    They were quite well-done. I enjoyed watching them, particularly Ron Perlman's performance. He's often underrated as an actir, I think, but in this franchise hecdid sone very good work.

    The Hellboy movies are great. Ron Perlman's work on Hand of God was pretty freaking sweet, too.
