My Top 5 (Newer) Super Hero Movies!

The Rules:

1. Newer - Had to come out in or after the year 2000
2. Has to be a real movie, not a parody or cartoon
3. Has to be out on BluRay or DVD at the time of this writing (Can't be in Theatre's) 

5. Spiderman


This was probably the toughest choice in this list, as I was having trouble deciding between Spiderman or Spiderman 2...but I decided to give the nod to the original mainly because it was first and because I love seeing how these superheroes got their starts. I think this movie does a great job portraying how Spiderman got his powers and his internal struggles with guilt. A truly great Superhero movie.

Get Spiderman on
Or the Spiderman Trilogy on

4. X-Men


In my opinion this is the movie that restarted the superhero craze. And while I'm highlighting the first one, I could have easily put any or all of the 3 X-Men movies on this list. The story portrayed in X-Men is excellent, all the character casting is great (highlighted by Hugh Jackman as Wolverine of course) and the movie raised the bar on what a superhero movie needed to be.

Get the X-Men Trilogy on
Or the Quadrilogy (Which adds X-Men Origins: Wolverine) on

3. Batman Begins


Until the Dark Knight Came out a few years later this was far and away my favorite Batman movie (and favorite Superhero movie as well). Christian Bale is awesome as the caped crusader and the movie is without equal when filling you in on how Batman came about. A masterpiece.

Get Batman Begins on

2. Dark Knight


Between an awesome story line and Heath Ledger playing the best version of the Joker ever (by a long shot), this movie could have easily been my number one and is on some days...

Get the Dark Knight on

And My Number One Favorite Superhero Movie of all time is....

1. Iron Man


Iron Man has an awesome script, great casting and this combined with the fact that I went into it with ZERO expectations (was seing it because I loved superhero moves)...I was then totally wowed by every scene. Robert Downey Jr. was amazing as Tony Stark and the movie is just straight up fun to watch and great in all ways.

Get Iron Man on

Ok, let me know what you think, do you agree with my list? If not what are your top 5 Superhero movies (following the rules at the top of the post)?

Cure EM (Erythromelalgia)

So as I mentioned in a previous post, my wife (Tracey) has Erythromelagia (EM for short). I am going to try and sum up this condition and how it has affected our lives in as short of a blurb as I can. Here it goes...

Picture from my wife's blog- i'm (not) superhuman
This condition began to show up around May of 2010 when my wife's feet would randomly swell, turn red, get hot to the touch and become extremely painful. She describes it as being lit on fire. It is actually considered one of the most painful conditions out there. It is also very rare, which is why we brought the diagnosis to our primary care doctor. And for us it was just one more problem on a long list of things that had happened to Tracey's health over the past few years.

At first the flares were fairly infrequent, and she mostly noticed them when it was pretty warm out or when she had been walking for a while. Over the past 10 months, EM has taken control of every part of our lives. Tracey now has to work…

This is healthy...No this is...

For years I've been trying to eat healthy with self admitted terrible success... And this post is not to blame anyone, because honestly I have no one to blame but myself for my mostly poor eating habits.

What this is about, is the frustration of eating "healthy"... At my most recent count I believe there is approximately twelve million different diets or ideas on how to "eat healthy"... about 3 times as many as there are actual food items in existence! For every food item it seems there is at least one diet, book or person saying it is good, and at least one saying it is not good...Or at least this is how it feels sometimes.

So my question is this, how do you choose what is actually good, how do you move past the confusion? I have read so many different books and theories, all of which sound so great while reading them, until you read the next one that is either a slight variation (at best) or the complete opposite of what you just read... and of course is just…

Panera Bread: Açaí Berry Iced Tea

Why I got it:

Had some time to kill and it looked refreshing. It is a regular fountain drink on the menu as well so it has free refills.

Cost: $1.79

Quick Thoughts:

It was inexpensive and refreshing with just the perfect hint of berry. I prefer mine unsweetened but you can add sugar if you would like.

Would I Get This Again:



The combination of cost and refreshment was perfect. I love good iced tea. There regular black tea is also very good but this was the first time I've seen this flavor here.

Where have you found good Iced tea?
