Cool! I agree with your choices!

I would add Ghost Rider, Daredevil and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen to the "worst" list. :D

I did some informal polling on Facebook, and "Ghost Rider" was nominated in both categories. Add to that the fact that I hadn't seen it, and I left it out. I did see "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," though, and remember blessed little.

Indeed, the less you remember of that movie, the more blessed you are. :P

All I remember is that Sean Connery was in it and that there was a scene where they have a fight in a library of some sort.

Poor Sean Connery. He was apparently offered a role in either Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings and turned it down because "he didn't get it" and then felt like he'd be damned for turning this role down just because he didn't get it. Turns out, he would have been right to turn it down.

Don't forget the *car chase* through the streets of *Venice*.

Yeah, just let that sentence percolate in your head for a moment, and then open the release valve before your head explodes from the sheer stupidity.

I *like* Ghost Rider and Daredevil! Mind, I also liked Catwoman, so what do I know?

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was pretty bad though.

As worthy as the other choices are, I am quite surprised that you didn't include "Spiderman 2" on your "best" list. By many accounts it was considered the best superhero movie yet (at least, until "Dark Knight" came out). The entire bit in the second act with the battle on the subway train and its aftermath is, for me, still one of the most thrilling and uplifting film sequences I've ever seen.

And as far as "worst" goes... for my money few movies can surpass "Green Hornet" and "The Spirit" in terms of pure suckitude. I actually walked out of the former, and in retrospect I probably should have walked out of the latter.

Actually, you didn't read carefully enough. I did mention it.

Sadly, I only had so many words!
