Heroes of the Silver Screen
1. Dark Knight (2008): The second installment of the new Batman franchise features Batman and Two Face but, it is the late Heath Ledgers portrayal of The Joker that is a masterpiece and it is downright scary. This film has moral points as well as laughter but, the deep insight into the Joker and his mental state are outstanding. The action is fast paced and having Morgan Freeman in the film is a plus. The story line is amazing and all the toys that Batman possesses is cool as well. This movie is the perfect battle of good vs. evil. The actors in this movie are top notch, this also makes this a great movie to watch.
2. Dark Knight Rises (2012): The film adds Cat Woman and the diabolical Bane to the script. Bane intends to destroy Gotham City with nuclear weapons but, Batman is in retirement. Not for long! When Batman learns of the plot to destroy the city, he quickly comes out of retirement. New weapons for the caped crusader to go along with his other toys help make this movie a classic. The fight scenes especially when Bane breaks Batman's back are very compelling. Morgan Freeman plays an excellent supporting role in this hero saga.
3. Spiderman (2002): The first is the best in this case because, it explains how Peter Parker became Spiderman and of course, his enemy is the Green Goblin. Webs fly along with romance, laughter and of course, fighting to defeat the bad guys. Spiderman has a major problem because, the Green Goblin is his best friend's dad. Toby McGuire was excellent at portraying Peter Parker. Parker's love interest went great with the Spiderman story. A great supporting cast featuring James Franco and Willem Dafoe.
4. Batman Begins (2005): This is the first in the newer and darker Batman series with Christian Bale as Batman. He must defeat crime boss Carmine Falcon and of course, Scarecrow in order to save the city and save his own dignity. The movie deals with Bruce Wayne's fear of bats, the death of his parents and his lust for revenge on the man who killed his parents and justice. Bruce Wayne learns martial arts and hones his skills for crime fighting.
5. Iron Man (2008): Robert Downey plays as a master engineer who invented a powered exoskeleton to cover his body as he fights crime in the streets. The military plays a major role in this film and the plot is rather deep. Also, the music soundtrack to this movie is awesome.
6. Super Man (1978): The late Christopher Reeves plays as Superman battling the bad guys namely his nemesis Lex Luther. The late Great Marlon Brando plays as Superman's father from Krypton. A true classic of a film based on the DC Comics of the same name. This movie started a franchise that made three more films with Reeves as Clark Kent and The Man of Steel. As Bruce Wayne he is a reporter and has the hots for fellow co-worker Lois Lane.
7. The Avengers (2012): The film is based on comic book characters Iron Man, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and other characters from the comic books that fight crime and the bad guys. The plot is too thick for my taste but, the special effects are outstanding and I must admit that having all those heroes in one film is awesome to say the least.
8. Spiderman 3 (2007): In Tobey Maguire's final appearance as Spiderman he must face his most horrid enemies yet including: Green Goblin, New Goblin, Sandman and the black suited Spiderman which overtakes the human body. This competes with the original for the top Spidey film ever based on action, special effects and four bad guys in one movie. I'll take it.
9. X-Men (2000): The X-Men are Wolverine, Iceman, Mystique, Rogue, Cyclops, Storm, Sabertooth and Magneto. Mutant super heroes with special powers to fight crime is what this crew is all about. The sound effects, soundtrack and action make this film a must see.
10. Hulk (2003): David Banner is a Genetic Scientist who becomes mutated with something that turns him into the Hulk when he gets angry. The film uses animated computer graphics as well as actual real life filming to make this film a success. This movie is based on the show that was quite popular during the 80s which starred Lou Ferringo.

Toby as Spidey
Toby McGuire did such a wonderful job playing Spiderman and Peter Parker. In fact, all three Spiderman films are top notch because of him and James Franco. He is a good actor and he can be funny, dramatic and full of action. The two Amazing Spiderman films are good in their own right but, it just isn't the same without Toby McGuire as the Spiderman, in my opinion. He is the face of Spiderman.
