For my first comic book movie draft I pick what I consider the greatest comic book film.
Uh oh, blaspheme, Dark Knight was better, blah, blah.. Whatever. Dark Knight hasn’t been around long enough to make it to anyone’s favorite movie list. Heck, maybe this one isn’t either, but it’s older than The Prestige, so i’ll go with it.
The reason I enjoyed this film so much was that it made Batman believable. Watching the movie I thought to myself that someone like this, today, in the real world, could do what Bruce Wayne is doing on screen and become Batman—with the endless resources of course. Dark Knight took away from the believability a bit with the whole sonar goggle seen in the climax. Oh ya, and unlike Superman Returns, this film has action and doesn’t steal from previous iterations of the character.
