Okay, I think that someone was drinking while doing this.

Howard the Duck was #70?
Barb Wire #63?
and Mystery Men #37?

Come on...those should have been the LAST three and in the case of Howard the Duck, invisible.

Actually Akira is #21, #20 is Over the Hedge.

Too bad movies such as Nausicaa dont' enough enough reviews to qualify.

Metropolis? Are you serious? Man, I really really remember watching that at anime club back in the day and not liking it at all.

maybe I'm just upset because metropolis is my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE, but this line
"Toss in a plot about a gender-switching robot in search of his/her parents, and you've got a recipe for one brain-bendingly intricate cartoon."
upset me. that's not what happened in the film at all...

Come on, Mystery Men was a great movie. One of my all time favorite comedys. I think 37 is about the right spot. Sure it wasnt "great" in the way Spiderman or w/e was great. As far as comedys go Its right up there.

I saw this a couple days ago, and I'm even more convinced its whack now. Akira got beat by Over the Hedge? And Men in Black? Of course, it does rank what Rotten Tomatoes does, which is compile all the scores of reviewers, so its not really like the staff of Rotten Tomatoes hand picked out the best ones.

Yeah, this list was terrible. If I remember right, the Hulk beat out Spiderman 3! I mean, come on! This list is absolute crap. The only thing it does is let you know which movies were originally comic books.

Howard the Duck is a piece of Cinema history it is the first and (hopefully) last time anyone will know Ducks carry condom.....And you know why Donald hasn't knocked up Daisy. Wink

There both equally awful and should never be seen by anyone, the only thing Spidey has got is that the fights actually looks good.....otherwise there utter crap. And to think that Edward Nortonand Liv Tyler want to bring these characters back....Bana career was nearly ruined, and Connelly is looking to be the next Marisa Tomei/Mira Sorvino

The entire list is completely worthless, it really doesn't say much as for what titles were really good and what was really bad. All it does is inform you (if you didn't already know) that there titles are actually based off manga/comic series.

It seems pretty unbalanced to me. Like the kinda thing some randon biased fan would come up with.

There was a bunch of stuff they had decided was the worst movie ever. There was a bunch of stuff they had decided was the best movie ever. And the stuff that fell inbetween they didn't really feel strongly about.

Well, I don't know about The Princess Blade but the Princess BRIDE was based on a book, not a comic or manga.
