How does your favourite CBM compare with your favourite movie ever? Are they the same? Why or why not?

Favorite CBM is TDK. It's in my top 5. I like movies more than comics.

The Dark Knight is my favorite CBM while Inception is on my top list in a non CBM. Yep theyre both made by Nolan.

The Dark Knight vs Goodfellas

Goodfellas clear win, not by far though .

The Dark Knight and The Crow both make it into my top 5-10 (I'm fickle with exact orders) but come below the likes of SE7EN and The Shining.

Best film is for the most parts subjective and while I don't have a favourite film as such; I can't stop loving Conan Barbarian as the best CBM film I can think of, sure it has it's glaring flaws but how I love those beautiful action scenes and the music score of that film... Gerry Lopez, Sandahl Bergman and Arnold do them all like Ultron says "there's are no stings on me" and not a drop of CGI... *sigh* practically nobody does such crispy, realistic & visceral fighting in films any more. It's all just CGI, shaky cam & wire hopping these days.

Favorite CBM = The Winter Soldier

Favorite Movie = Requiem for a Dream

Completely different styles and tones. The Winter Soldier has much more watchability while watching Requiem I feel like I need a shower afterwards. Requiem though holds a sentimental place for me that no other movie could top though

My favorite comic movie is Days of Future Past while my favorite movie is The Shawshank Redemption.

Between the two I'd usually rather watch DoFP, so I guess I'll say that's better.
