Ranking the Other DC Movies

So far I’ve ranked the Batman movies, the Superman movies, the Avengers movies, and the X-Men movies.  There’s only one major franchise of super-hero movies I haven’t ranked yet, and that is the Spider-Man franchise.  But before we get to that, let’s finish ranking any extraneous DC movies. This will be easy, because I’ve only seen one of them.

If you’ll recall, my ranking system is
Green=excellent  Blue=pretty good  Black=Okay  Red=avoid

Swamp Thing (1982)– I saw this for the first time two or three years ago, and you know what? It’s not bad, considering its terrible reputation among comic fans. I’m going to call it Okay rather than Pretty Good because it is low-budget and the special effects are laughable, but I found the movie perfectly entertaining. Sure, Swamp Thing was obviously a rubber suit, but the acting and script were no worse than most superhero movies. Much better than, say, Thor, which was big-budget but felt straight to video. This was low-budget and felt like all it needed was a little more investment.

Constantine (Haven’t seen)
Catwoman (Haven’t seen)
Green Lantern (Haven’t seen)

Yes, I’m aware of Watchmen, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, etc., but those are not DC universe movies and I’ll cover them in another post.
