  1. The league of extraordinary gentleman
  2. To celebrate World War Z crossing 200M domestic, I figured the time was ripe for a top 10 list of zombie movies. To qualify, a movie should have zombies, zombie-like creatures or infected humans showing erratic and berserk behavior. Movies like I am legend, The Crazies and 28 days later would qualify on the third aspect. Zombies behaving like humans should not be considered (Hotel Transylvania does not qualify, but warm bodies qualify because most of the zombies actually act like zombies). Points are awarded by position with #1 getting 10 points and #10 getting 1 point. For those who want to list movies outside of their top 10, I'll add ½ point for all movies outside the top 10 regardless of their rank up to rank 25. I'll edit rules as people point out flaws. Here's mine : 1. Dawn of the Dead 2004 2. I am Legend 3. Zombieland 4. 28 days Later 5. The Crazies 2010 6. Resident Evil 7. Shaun of the Dead 8. World War Z 9. Resident Evil 4 afterlife 10. Resident Evil 2 apocalypse 11. Resident Evil 5 Retribution 12. 28 weeks later 13. Resident Evil 3 Extinction 14. Dawn of the dead 1978 15. Quarantine Post away or PM!
  3. My list (placeholder for when we open up the votes) as of mid august 2013 : 1. TDK 2. X-Men first class 3. Watchmen 4. The Avengers 5. Batman Begins 6. X-Men 2 7. X-Men last stand 8. Spider Man 2 9. Spider man 10. Thor 11. TDKR 12. Iron Man 3 13. The incredible Hulk 14. Iron Man 15. Man Of Steel 16. The Wolverine 17. X-Men 1 18. X-men origins : Wolverine 19. Captain America 20. Blade 1 21. Amazing Spider man 22. Spider Man 3 23. Daredevil 24. Kick Ass 25. Batman 1989
  4. Like some of the posters here, I'm a big fan of Zhan books as well as the X-Wings series. The New Jedi Order was a very good serie with multiple authors over the span of around 20 books. Aaron Allston is definitely one of the best writers of SW and has been doing it for more than 15 years. Karen Traviss came in with a point of view of her own concerning clones and Fett and gave us very good books but got screwed over by the Clone Wars series and decided she was through with SW. James Luceno has not written a bad novel for SW and Mathew Stover probably wrote the best ones with Traitor, Shatterpoint and the novelization of ROTS. I'm afraid the new movies will destroy the universe that the books created. I own over 100 novels of SW, but I'm not gonna buy books that are on a parallel universe if they decide to go with a different direction.
  5. 1. Thor 2 2. X-Men DOTFP 3. Captain America 2 4. Hunger Games 2 5. Hobbit 2 6. Machete Kills 7. Riddick 8. Spider man 5 9. 300 - 2 10. Planets of Apes 2014 Slight change from last week for me.
  6. Transmorphers (most mockbusters should be on that list)
  7. Tele -- I've updated my list higher on this page. Do I need to pm also?
  8. You could also say that a live action movie is animating a series a photos... You could say that turning on a car was animating an inanimate object too...
  9. Batman spends way too much time off screen placing fuel at strategic places so that it forms at firey batman signs when lit with a match... Spider Man should cry more, violence is cause for sorrow Young Anakn Skywalker was a lovely child and I would have told him to stay in that cockpit if I had the chance Avatar was wrong, military men are society's most smart and non violent men and can solve all our problems with words of kindness RDJ is the worst actor to ever play Iron Man
  10. That's stretching a bit too far for my taste... Would you consider the CGI part of movies to be animation too?
  11. 1. Thor 2 2. X-Men DOTFP 3. Captain America 2 4. Hunger Games 2 5. Hobbit 2 6. Spider man 5 7. Riddick 8. Machete Kills 9. 300 - 2 10. Planets of Apes 2014
  12. Team America being voted means we have some very stupid movie goers in here...

  14. To each his own I guess, I also find it very hard to compare movies of different genres...I.E. Anchorman and Trainspotting.
  15. I'm guessing you already compiled all the lists you received so far... How long will it take you to publish the results once the deadline is over?

    JLAW

    Jude Law was pretty good in AI, but I feel his time has come and gone...Don't know why some of you are in awe over him...
  17. I'm a huge fan of Nolan, but I really hated Insomnia... I love most of his movies but his double scenes in his movies are starting to get on my nerves (cafe scene in TDKR, beach scenes in Inception, MAgic trick with the young girl in The Prestige) and make him somewhat predictable. That's his only flaw in my eyes though.
  18. 1. Star Wars 2. LOTR 3. Avengers 4. Batman 5. Harry Potter 6. X-Men 7. Resident Evil 8. Bourne 9. Jurassic Park 10. The Matrix 11. Austin Powers 12. Jackass 13. James Bond 14. Fast & Furious 15. Spider Man 16. Pirates of the Caribean 17. Terminator 18. Scream 19. Harold & Kumar 20. Toy Story 21. Shrek 22. Mission Impossible 23. Meet the parents / Fockers 24. Scary Movie 25. Back to the future
  19. I see 275M for this at the moment. Never thought I'd ever predict this for any FF movies...
  20. Big Fish Click I think I have some daddy issues though...
  21. I have a feeling this will increase from the first one...based only on very good DVD sales since release. This is not a reliable science (look at narnia, happy feet, Cars, Hangover, Iron Man, Kung Fu Panda), but it worked for these (Transformers, Twilight, Despicable Me)
