6. Art School Confidential
I know nothing about this film. But I learned recently that is based on a comic book! The series and film make fun of art school. As if those kids didn't get enough of that in High School.
|Apparently John Malkovich plays The Penguin|
7. Bulletproof Monk
Or, better said...
The yellow-scare pirate from At World's End and Stifler.
Keanu Reeves always needs his chance to save the world!
For some reason, the title was changed from Hellblazer to Constantine for this film. Perhaps it was to prevent confusion with Hellraiser.... because Hollywood thinks that we are all stupid. Pinheads?
9. Fritz the Cat
Cats having sex. It was a comic first. What a trip.
|I don't even have anything snarky I can say to this.|
10. Alan Moore Films: From Hell & V for Vendetta
|Alan Moore preparing for his role as a homeless warlock|
From Hell was the first Alan Moore film that he hated, but it would not be the last. Later, Watchmen, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and even V for Vendetta all eventually received his wrath. I think that's crazy, since the last one is a fantastic film. Nonetheless, Moore hated that it was modernized to speak to a contemporary audience. Someone is a little overprotective. He should do what George Lucas did and sell out! And shave...
|What is this about.|
|I don't know...|
Bruce Willis and John Malkovich in a comic book film? And Morgan Freeman? And Helen Mirren? WHY DID I NOT SEE THIS??? Netflix, here we come!
13. The Rocketeer
|Take THAT, Nazi!|
|Is that James Bond as a villain?|
14. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
This one might be obvious. But the comic is a recent one, and very popular strip. The film was pretty rockin' too. Thank you Amanda for showing me!
This movie was boring, DESPITE starring Bruce Willis. It was way too similar to the film Gamer with Gerard Butler (and DEXTER!). But hey, Netflix recommended it to my instant queue. I guess I can't complain.
16. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
|You know you love them|
I'm simply including these guys because they were, in fact, comic book characters before being immortalized as comic book characters and movie stars. Or being played by Cory Feldman.
17. Weird Science
Weird Science was a bizarre magazine. Then it got turned into a bizarre story about virgins who create a Frankenstein-like human sex machine who happens to look like Kelly LeBrock. Nicely done, geeks, nicely done.
I think this film was made for the kids who read the magazine.... virgins!
