Apparently the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is coming out right about now. While the explosion-filled trailer I saw for it (before the equally explodey Transformers 4) made up my mind that I won't be seeing this particular movie, comics have been the inspiration for some great films.
Because comic book movies are almost always superhero movies, my own preferences reflect what I like best about the original superhero comics. In my opinion, the best superhero films are the ones that preserve the campiness inherent to superheroes. So while I remember being impressed by The Dark Knight when it came out, I could never enjoy it as much as Adam West's Batman. I also thought the Thor movies (based on my all-time favourite superhero) were pretty good. And Scott Pilgrim vs. The World immediately became one of my favourite films. Overall I tend to avoid any comic book films that seem to take themselves too seriously.
What are your favourite comic book films? Have you seen TMNT, or are you planning on it?
