Graphic novels are generally made up of comics. Sin City came out in comic book form before the arcs were collected and sold in single books. And you can't really make the distinction between the men in tights books being more or less literary, as The Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns are both more substantive works than the Sin City books.

The mistake people make is that the comic book is a medium, not a genre.

Well, let me take that back and say I judge them on a case by case basis. When I say comics, I suppose I'm leaning towards Superhero stories and graphic novels more real stories, relatively speaking.

Don't get me started on Miller and Batman, though. The man is single-handedly trying to take down Batman.

You know, I'm totally fine with you not liking Begins, but Fantastic Four? C'mon now.
i watche fantastic four back to back with war of the worlds, and i really hated war of the worlds so maybe it just seemed good by comparison. then again, most of the time, i consider it a good movie if there is an explosion, people who can shoot electricity out of their hands, a guy that can fly around on fire, and jessica alba in her underwear.

the end of the batman begins drove me insane. the whole time im just thinking, "the microwave thing should be boiling the people too." then everything go backs to normal despite half the city getting infected. for some reason, those people dont tear the city apart or riot. it doesnt seem like an easy task to round all those people up and cure them before they burn everything. then there was the fact that all the crazy people arent scared of each other or even attacking each other, but apparently katie holmes is the devil to them. i really like the first half of the movie though.

Just like all the other ones that's been out, it looks awesome, but will likely end up being disappointing.

Re: jmk Nearly Has an Aneurism; Wolverine News

Not that anybody asked for it, but here's my ranking of comic book films. I include Sin City, because it features a traditional comic book plot featuring guys with super powers, etc.

1. Spider Man 2 Got to agree with Roger Ebert. Greatest comic book film ever.
2. Sin City
3. Spider Man
4. Superman (how this one is getting left out of the conversation, I can't figure out.)
5. Blade
6. Batman (now it looks dated and cheesy, but you have to give props to the movie that basically kick-started the comic book film genre in the 1990's)
7. Batman Begins
8. X Men 2
9. Hellboy
10. The Crow (wasn't that a comic first?)

Re: jmk Nearly Has an Aneurism; Wolverine News

now, then. the worst comic book movies I've squandered even a tiny fraction of my life viewing:

#1. Catwoman (Even Hale Berry can't save this, because you simply can't be sexy while being THAT stupid. Not even Hale Berry.)
#2. The Punisher (I'm talking the one from like 1988 starring Dolph Lundgren. So much subject matter. So little effort.)
#3. Fantastic Four (I'll admit to not watching it. But even the trailer made me feel unclean.)
#4. The Hulk. (Ang Lee of Brokeback Mountain and Crouching Tiger made this? It actually wasn't THAT bad, but great directors have farther to fall.)
#5. Elektra (see Catwoman)

Spawn?
that movie was simply amazing. definitely up there with x2 for my favorite comic book movie.


and i wonder if the wolverine's movie will be true to the xmen movie story line or the comic story line.

You need to watch Fantastic Four. It looked bad to me too, but I was dragged to it and it was actually pretty entertaining. I see why people don't like Hulk, but I don't think it's as bad as it's made out to be. Pretty decent.

Re: Xmen Origins: Wolverine

I'm actually a big Ryan Reynolds fan AND a huge Deadpool fan (could Christopher Priest have worse luck? he's great and gets no press) so i can't wait for this. It can't be as bad as Blade: Trinity right?

Re: Xmen Origins: Wolverine

Well, having Gavin Hood as director should assure this to be more of a serious comic book flick, but I really don't like Schrieber as Creed. I don't like him much as anything, though. Gerard Butler, who was rumored, would have been a much cooler Sabretooth.
