easy sparky.
you might blow your load.
The movie for me was the best translation of the comic.
And I like the comic, the art and like noir whether in books, comic and film.
so yeah I liked it.
Sorry you didn't.

That's one fine coat you're wearing!

I know it's pretty damn weird to eat people.

Most people think Marv is crazy. He just had the rotten luck of being born in the wrong century. He'd be right at home on some ancient battlefield swinging an axe into somebody's face. Or in a Roman arena, taking his sword to other gladiators like him. They woulda tossed him girls like Nancy back then.

I check the list. Rubber tubing, gas, saw, gloves, cuffs, razor wire, hatchet, Gladys, and my mitts.


Killing? No. No satisfaction. Everything up until the killing, will be a gas.

My brother just reminded me of another one I like for no apparent reason… Dick Tracy.

Told you I was weird. ;)

I never saw all of Dick Tracy. What I saw, I did like. I love the villains from Dick Tracy.

And I have fond memories of playing the nes game. I liked how you could pull out your gun to kill the bad guys.

No one else is a big fan of Creepshow around here?

What about Hellboy? Changed a lot of elements from the comics, but a lot of those changes: I liked. For example, Liz in the movie felt more developed and interesting as Hellboy's love interest. In the comics Hellboy is like a hard boiled noir type of never changing character. He is who he is. He fights bad guys period. In the movie, giving him a crush on Liz really gave the character a sympathetic angle. I really would've loved a straight adaptation of Hellboy, especially considering how genuinely beautiful the stuff Mignolia himself drew is. My biggest gripe with the movie is that Abe Sapien for downplayed into comic relief. I wanted the gun toting team mate of Hellboy, not some egg sucking psychic! The other major change from the books (besides giving away all the plot in one movie, taking scenes from other stories and putting them in this) was that of the assassin robot guy. In the books he's a minor character who I think is some sort of scientist or something? I think that was a positive change. Although part of me wanted to see Hellboy fight against a giant ape monster or something similar.

I'm hoping that one day Hellboy gets straight by-the-book adaptations. As a comic book fan, I'd rather have that than something that tries to get the gist of the character like the Spider-man and X-men movies or is based on parts of stories or scenes from random comics. Thats why I liked 300 and Sin City so much. It was like watching the stories that I loved come to life. 300 I had some big gripes with them breaking phalanx formation, which seemed to be a central theme of the book, but that was to add in some more action and murder. The subplot with the guys wife was a terrible addition though.

Blade was a great comic book movie. No one, and I mean no one, had heard of Blade. I say no one, but really people HAD heard of Blade. Just not the same Blade from the movies or Spider-man cartoon. Blade had appeared in a couple of marvel books where he was an a guy from england or europe who fights vampires. Mostly appearing in team books and the more mystical marvel comics stories, Blade was (and still is in some ways) a third string character. The Spider-man cartoon from the early 90s brought him in as a tough talking guy in leather and someone thought that character would make an awesome movie. How right they were. Blade is absolutely one of the BEST comic book movies. Its hardly based off the comics at all. In fact, if my sources are correct, the major thing about Blade in the film that he's a daywalker (A half vampire who can go out during the day) wasn't in the comics or cartoon version at all. Among other cool stuff in the movie is the way blade fights bad guys. Wesly Snipes knows martial arts, so dudes are getting kicked and punched all over the place. He has a sword and guns to fight vampires with too. Add in some occult prophecy plot and stuff about a vampire society and you've got an awesome movie. I was looking forward to seeing this one because I had found out who Blade was from the Spider-man cartoon. I read a blurb in Wizard that announced its release date, and from that two sentance blurb, I was anxious to see what a movie about Blade could be. After reading old blade comics, I'm happy with the changes in the first two Blade movies. The third one took things in a direction I didn't like, and I didn't even bother with the TV show (mostly for lacking Wesly Snipes) but still, Blade by itself is awesome. The sequel goes in interesting directions too with some very cool action scenes. Its almost like comparing Alien to Aliens in a sense, especially since the third one wasn't all that great compared to the first two.

I'd also like to mention V For Vendetta. It moves some of the story around and takes out a few elements, some characters were merged together or left out, but the major themes are there. V for Vendetta had some truly cool moments lifted straight from the comic series. I liked it. I only saw it the one time and probably won't see it again.

I agreed with alot of what you said Marine, UNTIL you talked about V for Vendetta. I can't say I agree with that at all. V was just a bad character and his “ideal” that he stood for he wasn't true to and when he's supposed to only repsent an ideal and yet he doesn't, well he's not much of a character then.

Oh and Blade was a daywalker in the Spider-Man cartoons. But no, when Marv Wolfman wrote the comic, he was a walking talking 70's stereotype that weilded wooden daggers. And was human.

He tortured the girl as a way to test her and said the bad people were bad because they would do it to her. That makes him bad. And the fact that the girl was like “I'm with you til the end V! Do me now!” shows she was dumb.

X-Men? Eh. Spiderman? Eh. The movies were ok.
I liked Sin City and V for Vendetta. I, personally, can't wait to see how good (or bad) Watchmen is going to be.

Me, I REALLY liked the movies after old serial/radio/pulp/comic heroes. The Shadow, The Phantom, Flash Gordon, and newcomer The Rocketeer (I know The Rocketeer wasn't around way back when, but the FEEL of the movie and comic were right on the money…plus, it's just good, plain fun!)The movies were bad, yeah…but they were good, hokey, heroism with goofy stories…which is what they were born from.

My favorites are Hellboy and Tankgirl, though. I never get sick of watching either.

I liked the movie a LOT! Mon, Lori Peti was an UBER-babe in that.

Well apart from TG, I'd have to say Birdman.

Hmmm. I would have to go with Blade Runner and maybe X-men. I also liked the first Spiderman and Batman Begins.

But I think Blade Runner tops all those.

I will have to check out this Tank Girl everyone is so giddy about. ;)

Howard the Duck!!

I laughed my @$$ off during that entire movie, mostly because I couldn't believe someone actually made a mainstream movie based on that comic. It got horrific reviews, but I enjoyed its weird humor and cheesiness and that it never even tried to take itself seriously. And don't forget the Thomas Dolby soundtrack, including a totally 80s theme song. Hate it if you want, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the Duck!

Blade Runner?
Huh?
As far as I remember that wasn't based on a comic but a short story by Phillip P Dick.
Great movie none the less…but not a comic based movie.
