Re: Superhero Movie Poll, Discussion Thread!

Joker certainly isn't any kind of hero, but I just mean he counts in that he's part of the superhero world (compared to, like, counting singing cowboy Gene Autry because he used to have a comic book). There's nothing in the movie that makes it feel like a superhero world. If they changed the name J...

Re: Superhero Movie Poll, List Thread!

I wouldn't consider Joker a superhero movie, because there are no superheroes in it. Just a villain. I don't think most people consider Men in Black or Ghost World a superhero movie, but I haven't seen them, so I can't be sure. The Lego Movie has superheroes in it, but if I remember correctly, they'...

Re: Superhero Movie Poll, List Thread!

Alright, upon looking into it, I think that it might be a good idea to just go off of RateYourMusic's genres. Let me know what you think, but I feel like it would be easy and simple to say that if a movie hase "Superhero" as a main (bolded) genre on RYM, it is eligible, and otherwise not. This take...

Re: Superhero Movie Poll, List Thread!

Ok, I removed Dr. Horrible from my list. I'm not sure what you mean about Dredd. I think he fits the definition of superhero very closely. He's a human who wears a costume, he has superhuman abilities, and he protects the public. It seems that most people consider Dredd a superhero. All of the follo...

When I said that, I was thinking of the first Terminator film. I'm not sure about T2. I don't remember it well.

What about Hulk? He doesn't wear a costume (unless you count regular pants as a costume), but everyone considers him a superhero.

At the risk of sounding pedantic: What defines a superhero?

I'm surprised to see the original Zelda above A Link to the Past, because I thought most people like A Link to the Past more. Actually the votes seem to agree with this, because 3 of the 4 people who voted for both games gave a better rank to A Link to the Past.

I think different ports of the same game should be combined, if there are only minor changes.

If there are major changes, maybe they should be separate, but I can't think of any examples.

I'm interested in a comics poll, but I hope you don't mind if my list is entirely manga.

I'm not interested in episodes because I don't watch individual episodes, so it wouldn't be useful as a list of recommendations. It's also too hard to remember which episodes are the best.

The Rose of Versailles has some similarities with Utena, so I think you'll probably like it.
