Dear 100 Hour Board,
In your opinion, what are the top 10 most artistically significant comic book films of the last 20 years?
My picks, in no particular order:
1. V for Vendetta
2. Spider Man 2
3. The Dark Knight Rises
4. Marvel's The Avengers
5. The Dark Knight
6. Guardians of the Galaxy 2
8. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
10. Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse
I don't know enough about comics or watch enough movies to make a real good analysis... If I made a list it would probably just literally be my 10 favorite superhero films. The only ones I have a particular opinion about artistically are:
1) Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse. This movie deserves every bit of acclaim it has received. It is a work of art and I LOVED it so much. Seriously incredible, innovative, beautiful... I watched it 3 times a row in the theater (which I never do) like 4 months ago and I'm still just floored by it.
2) Guardians of the Galaxy (both). I think the humor and music in this film changed Marvel movies in a way that has made them very enjoyable
3) Dr. Strange - like I said, I don't know a whole lot... but I just really enjoyed the look and feel of this movie. It was almost Harry-Potter-esque to me, and I thought it was just well done.
