If you follow Kevin Smith on Twitter (ThatKevinSmith) and or pay attention to the news at viewaskew you may have noticed that Smith posted a list of his favorite Super Hero movies. For those of you that missed out lets take a look at his list and see if Smith lives up to his nerd cred or if he is bat shit crazy.
THE DARK KNIGHT
DAREDEVIL (fuck you)
XMEN 3 (fuck you, it’s got Iceman!)
V FOR VENDETTA
I pretty much agree with Smith’s list, good solid choices. I think it pretty much matches the nerd community consensus when it comes to best super hero flicks. Although, I dunno how I feel about Daredevil and X-men 3. I hope he is referring to Daredevil the directors cut because that’s actually pretty dam good. If you haven’t seen it go out and rent it. There is less love crap between Daredevil and Elektra. There is also a murder mystery involving a crack head (played by rapper Coolio) that is innocent of the crime, daredevil busts the case and makes the movie a bit more compelling. If however, Smith is referring to the theatrical cut then I think he may have a relaxed brain and or just loves the movie for his 5 minute cameo. X-3 is sort of a secret shame of mine. I liked aspects of it. Face it Ice Man was cool but ya, there is not many saving graces. Beside Ice-man I’d like to see Kevin to defend this movie. My opinion of Kevin Smiths opinion is rather stupid because what does he or you care what I have to say. I will say, though that you can judge a man by the company he keeps and the same goes for his choice of movies. Regardless Kevin Smith is a god and spreads the nerd gospel. If you like him then you will probably like his choice in movies. So buy em if you don’t got em and rent em if you haven’t seen em.
