The ‘ranking’ of James Gunn’s best films according to specialized critics and moviegoers

American James Gunn (b. 1966) is known in the industry and among specialized critics and world cinema for having made two of the funniest films of the world. Marvel Cinematic Universe, the two volumes of Guardians of the Galaxy, and for having known how to transfer that hooligan humor to the DC Extended, saving it a bit from its inconsistent drift with Suicide squad, who has joined Wonder Woman (Patty Jenkins, 2017) y The Justice League (Zack Snyder, 2021) as the most decent of this irregular superhero saga.

Of course, with his curriculum focused on the most commercial cinema above all, has not been able to obtain any award in the most prestigious competitions; and has even been nominated in the anti-Oscars, the Razzie Awards, for his participation in the episode film Movie 43 (2013).
