  • I love comics in general, but absolutely despise (most) superhero adaptations(tv/movies). Is it enough to love *only* the source material, but absolutely hurl whenever you see the latest ads/trailers for the latest run-of-the-mill superhero garbage?

  • What did the goat say after it ate the movie reel?

    "The book was better."

    The book is always better my friend. That being said, I enjoy the movies for what they are. The trick is to be selective about which ones you watch because some are good but others are really bad. If only I could get in a time machine and go back to 1995 and tell myself not to go see the Stallone Judge Dredd movie!
    Did I err?

  • There have been a lot of stinkers when it comes to comic book movies. But not all of them.

    The 4 Avengers movies were very good. The first Wonder Woman was excellent. The last 3 Batman movies were enjoyable. The 2 Deadpool movies were fun as heck. The 2 Kick-A$$ movies were also very worthwhile.

    I'm missing a couple, but I have nothing but nice things to say about the above movies.

  • I don't understand your question. Is somebody forcing you to love certain movies?

  • Maybe not perfect but I do believe that some adaptations have been a lot of fun. In addition to some that have already been mentioned here are some others that I would consider enjoyable:

    X-men the Animated Series
    Batman The Animated Series
    Batman (1989)
    Batman Begins
    Teenage Murder Ninja Turtles (1990)
    The Crow (1994)
    Logan
    Dredd
    Walking Dead (seasons 1-3) I stopped watching after that.
    Superman (1978
    Superman II
    Road to Perdition

    Probably a lot more that I’m not recalling right now.

  • Cool how this has become a thread to discuss the comic book movies done well. I like most the ones suggested so far, and would add these to the list:

    Watchmen
    Mystery Men
    Scott Pilgrim vs The World
    Blade
    Swamp Thing

  • What I find funny is if you read superhero comics, you're typically looked at as a dork or immature. However, if you're one of the millions and millions that watched Avengers and loved it, then no big deal. So reading about guys in tights with powers is nerdy, but watching grown men dressed up in tights with CGI .... cool. Personally, I find superhero concepts much more palatable on paper than on screen.

    Reminds me of the quote from Harrison Ford telling George Lucas about his dialogue in Star Wars [paraphrased] "You can write this , but you can't say it". That's how I feel about comics vs. their movies for the most part.

    I can still enjoy the movies but I'd rather read the stuff.
