Maybe a jolt of debate/discussion is needed in order to spark this community to life? Let it be done then!
X-Men. X-Men II. X-Men III: The Last Stand. Sin City. Spider-Man. Batman Begins. Superman Returns. V for Vendetta. And now Watchmen, due for release sometime during 2007, I believe. There's a distinct, undeniable relationship between the cinema and comic mediums, made obvious by Hollywood's relentless plundering of DC, Dark Horse and Marvel material. What do we think of this? Do we like film adaptations of our beloved works? Do we like comic book aesthetic infiltrating film aesthetic? Which adaptations rocked? Which ones sucked? Why?
I'm a film student as well as a lover of comic books, so this issue has always been a favourite one of mine, and I was wondering what opinions other comic nerds had concerning it.
