Wow..... This is an interesting list.
 
2013-05-11 11:06:59 PM  
Has Heath Ledger been sainted?

The Dark Knight doesn't deserve the top.
 
2013-05-11 11:08:04 PM  
Jonah Hex, The Spirit and Catwoman?

*clicks on link*

One out of three. I'll take it.

I wasn't aware that A History of Violence started in graphic novel format.

Great list. Can't argue about it but I wish Dredd had scored higher.

Really fun movie

I guessed Catwoman and both Fantastic 4 movies.

Really, though, I don't even know if Steel and Son of The Mask should count. They weren't trying to be good.
 
2013-05-11 11:28:40 PM  
Red is about 5 spots too low and Wanted is about 20 spots too high.

Great point.

Green Lantern for sure.
 
2013-05-11 11:40:55 PM  
Glad to see some anime on that list.
 
2013-05-12 12:05:09 AM  
I got Son Of The Mask, and I was close with Howard The Duck.
 
2013-05-12 12:12:26 AM  
not saying Iron Man 3 shouldn't be near the top of the list, but after only one week in release?

2wolves: I wasn't aware that A History of Violence started in graphic novel format.

this too.

Same with Road to Perdition

Scott Pilgrim is ranked higher than I thought it would be, good, I liked that quirky little film.
 
2013-05-12 01:07:47 AM  
Nice to see Dredd on that list.  It didn't do nearly as well as it should have.
 
2013-05-12 01:09:58 AM  
I'm guessing Catwoman, Daredevil, and Batman Begins or whichever was the one with the nipple costumes.

(just saw Howard the Duck in the comments and that's probably right, but it didn't come to mind right away being so ancient and all)
 
2013-05-12 01:12:19 AM  

Because People in power are Stupid: Has Heath Ledger been sainted?

The Dark Knight doesn't deserve the top.


That's a Warner Brothers movie, and they own Rotten Tomatoes (via flixster), so i'm sure that would skew it slightly.

Really quite surprised people still take that site seriously since it was bought. Sure they don't go overboard and make it obvious they're using it to fluff themselves up, but you can be sure they do take certain liberties.

Well I got Catwoman right. I guess Elektra was the real dog not Daredevil, and of course Batman and Robin was the real dud of the Batman series not Batman Begins lol. Would never have remembered Steel or Son of Mask

Both were done under the Paradox Press label, an indie label Marvel (i think) tried in the late 90s.  they were small format books, like 6 x 8 size and about 48 pages per issue.  (i still have a few of them.)  i loved those books and was thrilled when they became movies.  they were decent movies but not as faithful to the story as they should have been.  i would have loved to see Green Candles and The Project made into movies too.

Over The Hedge, Tamara Drewe, and Adele Blanc-sec are things I have never heard of as comics or movies.

And Popeye is an incredibly good movie.  It should be high into the 70s according to their scale.  And Howard the Duck was ironically awesome and should be somewhere in the low 50s.  And I'm glad i never saw Whiteout.  I loved those books and new it was going to be atrocious when they cast Beckinsale.
 
2013-05-12 01:21:25 AM  
Daredevil
Ghost Rider
Catwoman.

Those are my guesses. Off to see what I forgot.
 
2013-05-12 01:22:29 AM  
95% of those movies are really, really bad
 
2013-05-12 01:23:34 AM  
Huh.

Didn't know there was a STEEL movie. And Son of the Mask... really? That's a comic?

I didn't know there was a Persepolis movie, either. Now it's on my must find list.

really? You think they cherry pick the reviews or something? I really doubt the people who run RT would let that happen. If it did you would hear about somebody quitting over it in protest, for sure.

Anyway, it owes its high rating just as much or more to IMBD. At one point it was the #1 movie there due to fanboy idiocy (now it's Shawshank due to fanboy idiocy).

unlikely: Huh.

You are lucky.  And The Mask was comic while Son of the Mask was sequel that they did a comic adaption to--and it was truly awful (and offal).

I didn't know there was a Persepolis movie, either. Now it's on my must find list.

There are two Persepolis books.  The first one is incredibly good.  The second one is angrier and good, but not as good as the first.  Both read the books and see the movie.

"Persepolis" is worth seeing. It was actually co-directed and narrated by the creator of the graphic novel and uses the exact same graphical style (which is pretty unusual in comic book adaptations).

I was surprised that "A History of Violence" was a comic; I had no idea.

The list is missing "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath" (based on a graphic novel that is itself a Lovecraft adaptation - I thought it was pretty neat, but it's definitely very unusual and an acquired taste)
 
2013-05-12 01:29:13 AM  
Huh. Couple names on that list I don't recognize.

Also, Ghost in the Shell was farking awful. Dunno how it fared compared to the comic, but the movie was dull as shiat.
 
2013-05-12 01:31:28 AM  
The Phantom deserves better.

2013-05-12 01:33:30 AM  
Flocking Netflix doesn't have a single one of those movies for streaming.  And I feel pretty behind on the X-men films.

/Shame more people didn't see Persepolis.  It was quite eye-opening for me.
 
2013-05-12 01:36:45 AM  
how bout the other Superman reboot
 
2013-05-12 01:37:21 AM  
As someone who has seen both Garfields with my kid, the sequel Tail of Two Kitties needs to be at the bottom
 
2013-05-12 01:38:11 AM  
Haven't seen most of these, but if a mediocre work like Persepolis deserves #2 and the ridiculously why-so-serious new Batman is at #1, I'm glad I missed them.
 
2013-05-12 01:38:19 AM  
The r rated directors cut of Daredevil is a pretty decent movie. Less Elektra, more lawyering, more Coolio, a lot darker overall. I still think Michael Clark Duncan was an inspired casting choice.
 
2013-05-12 01:39:43 AM  
Without reading the thread or list, I'm gonna say.  Catwoman, the Stallone Judge Dredd and Batman Forever.

Off to check.

One out of three, and I meant to say Batman and Robin, but that wasn't one of them either.
 
2013-05-12 01:49:40 AM  
Red Sonja is so much better than everything listed before it until you reach Cowboys & Aliens.
 
2013-05-12 01:49:54 AM  
Captain America, Hulk and Cat Woman.

Only one? Come on, Captain America was one of the worst movies ever made.
 
2013-05-12 01:55:48 AM  
Oh man I had completely forgotten about Steel. Saw that crapfest after it made its debut at the Smithees here in Ann Arbor

/pretty sure it won the worst line category for "Well, dip me in shiat and roll me in breadcrumbs"
 
2013-05-12 02:00:00 AM  
The Dark Knight Rises should not be that high.
 
2013-05-12 02:03:53 AM  
This thread is slowly bringing up everyone's horrible memories of Steel

/no one here actually saw Son of Mask.

red5ish: Captain America, Hulk and Cat Woman.

Really? I thought Chris Evans made a pretty decent Captain America. I liked the scrawny pre super solider serum Steve Rogers in that flick.

But holy god Cat Woman and Hulk both blew.

I'm ashamed to admit I made it all the way to the part where Jamie Kennedy starts singing can't take my eyes off of you.

Maybe he meant this Captain America:

Primitive Screwhead: Red Sonja is so much better than everything listed before it until you reach Cowboys & Aliens.


I really thought I was going to hate Cowboys and Aliens but I rather liked it mainly because it's really not a concept I've seen in a movie before. It also didn't hurt that it wasn't a prequel,sequel or remake.
 
2013-05-12 02:52:48 AM  
Even though Supergirl is near the bottom of the list, no one ever watched it for the story or the acting. They got drunk and/or stoned, popped it in the player, turned down the sound, and watched Helen Slater run around until they passed out.

/also I was not aware that Nausicaa was a comic adaptation
//nice to see it high on the list though

I knew that one. However I didn't know "Oldboy" was based on a comic book.

Also: comic strips and one-panel New Yorker cartoons (looking at you "Garfield" and "The Addams Family") don't really qualify as "comic books" in my mind.

ArcadianRefugee: Also, Ghost in the Shell was farking awful. Dunno how it fared compared to the comic, but the movie was dull as shiat.


Ghost in the Shell had some great segments (the battle with the tank mecha thing at the end comes to mind), but yeah, I don't need to watch 15 minutes of someone staring out a train window.

BioStormX: TDKR in the top 5? Already can't take this list seriously


Dark Knight Rises is indeed too high.

One that's underrated, but hasn't been mentioned, is Speed Racer. That movie is surprisingly decent and quite a bit of fun. Josie & The Pussycats isn't listed at all, and is also underrated.
