Top 5 Comic Book Movies (1978-1997)

Jason Book and I run down the list of our 5 favorite comic book movies from the era that started with Superman: The Movie and screeched to a halt with Batman & Robin.

Here's our list, which we discuss in detail in the video:
  1. Superman: The Movie (1978), directed by Richard Donner
  2. Batman (1989), directed by Tim Burton
  3. The Crow (1994), directed by Alex Proyas
  4. Men in Black (1997), directed by Barry Sonnenfeld
  5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990), directed by Steve Barron
This era had as many bad CBMs as good ones, and even the good ones haven't all held up over time. But it paved the way for the surging era that was 1998 to 2015 (ended by the Fantastic Four bomb). The year 2016 will kick off an exciting new era, we think.
