I had comic book movies on the brain this past week, since I had just ordered the Batman Begins DVD from Amazon. I had already watched the first two, Michael Keaton-starring Batman flicks, so didn't want to duplicate that film festival. So as to not inflict any injury on myself, I decided to keep the mini-marathon to just Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, X-Men and X-Men 2. This was also prompted by a desire to remind myself how good the X-Men movies are, before Brett Ratner comes in and ruins the franchise. Really, though, I wanted to see how the best four films based on Marvel Comics characters fared in head-to-head competition.
