There are several movies, and it doesn't matter how many times I've seen them, that if I run across them, I can't turn them off.  Any of the Godfather movies are among that group.

Though I prefer Malin Akerman as a blonde, she certainly added to the movie.

Unrelated awesome quote of the day from Jonah Goldberg:



"...Fremdschämen, so you’d think more people would be using it.
So what does it mean? It means feeling embarrassed for someone else. But more than that, it means feeling embarrassed for someone else because that someone else doesn’t realize he should be embarrassed.

“Fremdschämen describes the almost-horror you feel when you notice that somebody is oblivious to how embarrassing they truly are,” writes Daniel Hawes in Psychology Today. “Fremdscham [the noun] occurs when someone who should feel embarrassed for themselves simply is not, and you start feeling embarrassment in their place.”

...As Hawes notes, this feeling is the whole conceit behind “mockumentaries” like The Office and the oeuvres of Larry David and Ricky Gervais. Also, the auditions for American Idol and all of the related rip-offs are Fremdschämen factories, churning out Fremdscham like kids in a Brazilian sweatshop cranking out Guy Fawkes masks for rich white Occupy kids to use in their protests against economic exploitation. (Next time you see an Urban Outfitter Bolshevik wearing one, you too can experience Fremdschämen)..."

i enjoyed it, but IMO it didn't approach the level of other comic book movies.  sin city was better, and even the crow surpassed it.  a quick survey reveals hellboy, the mask, men in black, and X-men also.




VforV is a thematically powerful movie, no question.  but as an adaptation from comic book to film, i don't rate it as highly as you do.







(then again, i enjoyed the hell out of tank girl)

I guess all this debate hinges on what criteria you are using to determine which comic book based full feature film is the best. Many comic book movies are good movies, as in entertaining and earn a profit, and some even garner an academy award nod once in a while. But are we are talking about "best" as in best script, story, and acting? Or best as in closest to the source material?

Most of the recent comic book based movies were good, in some regards. The Spiderman franchise, X-Men franchise, Wolverine franchise, Batman (Dark Night) franchise, Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Thor, Capt. America, Avengers, Iron Man franchise, all entertaining movies. But as far as best all around (acting, cinematography, closeness to source material, etc.) I would have to give my vote to

Hellboy is fricken awesome, and I really enjoyed the Golden Army (Part 2).  



VforV is another movie I can throw in anytime, make some popcorn and rewatch

I agree.  V for Vendetta was good.  Probably a bit better than Watchmen, but I like both of them.

Rewatch V sometime and see how much closer we are to the society depicted, but instead of an ultra-conservative totalitarian state, an ultra-liberal one.

The extended version was better. The ending was less "wat" than the comic was. I need to read Before Watchmen.

VforV was good, but the comic was better.

Chris Nolan Batman movies were amazing, but there are a lot of Batman comics that I'd love to see made into films. Like "Joker" with the Joker as the main character, or The Killing Joke.

Sin City was good, and hopefully the sequel will be out soon.

300 was a good movie, but I thought the graphic novel was gay.

Blade was a terrible comic, and a worse movie.

XMEN 1, and 2 were cool. 3 was awful.

Natalie Portman is in it, its about one man defeating a totalitarian regime, on the surface it should be an Arfcommers wet dream, I think the real issue was my arrogant and declaritive post.
Of course its not the BEST movie, its just my favorite.
I could not watch 'sin city' -sorry.
Tank Girl? no...
The newer Batman movies are okay just not something I will watch over and over is all.
I think this covers it.
