Hey, I liked Howard the Duck! But yeah, not the best adaptation ever ;). As for comic book adaptations I liked the X-Men - good transition from comics to film, putting aside the acceptable plot holes. I always suspend my disbelief when watching a movie, especially sf & fantasy. But what I hate is the director of screenwriter adding something that spoils the original - like the whole love story in V fof V. Not to mention totally changing the message of the original story and softening the characters (plus some other minor changes). It was nice visually but that's it.

Of course it's not nearly as bad as the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen adaptation, in which in most parts the only things in common with the source material are the names of the characters ;).

And I couldn't ever account the Wachowski brothers as good directors. All their movies are visually stunning, but the plot is cheap at best. I liked the first Matrix as a concept and a very well-produced work of inspiration, but I frowned a few times. The second Matrix was for me nothing but nice visuals while the third... well, it has a good soundtrack ;). I'm looking forward to the upcoming Speed Racer (which in trailers looks like a one giant special effect and I don't suppose it's going to be anything more) though I doubt it'll be as funny as the American anime adaptation with the machine gun-speed dialogue brilliantly spoofed in a Dexter's Lab episode ;).

Oh, and if you like it, of course go and buy it when it's released on DVD. But it hasn't been, yet.

I watched it again and laughed every time the spoken text goes out of synch with the lips :).

"Right behind you."

ARGH! Not two weeks later and they've yanked it! :evil:

I wanted my hubby to see it (since my son and I have watched it numerous times) and it's gone. Pulled over Cartoon Network's copyright issues..... There are a TON of Dexter vids on there. Wonder if they've all been pulled??

Oh well....Thanks for putting it there in the first place, dude.

Finally, I've found a reason to watch this movie; Mike Patton.

I didn't read this whole thread because I haven't seen the movie yet and didn't want to come across any spoilers. I've been completley avoiding it because I expect to be disappointed. The book was absolutely wonderful, and if you haven't read it, please, please go get a copy, RIGHT NOW! Anyway, I have a copy of the movie at home now and plan to get to it this weekend - though it's been my plan for several weekends. I've told my boyfriend he doesn't probably want to watch it with me, since I'll complain and moan for 2 hours. After movies such as Tommyknockers...horrrrrrrible movie....I don't do well with total changes in the story!

Anywho - wish me luck...

This makes me wonder what you thought of "The Mist"? Did you see that one yet?

Actually I LOVED the Mist!! I was very nervous about it but very happy with the results. That one was pretty right on, except the end, of course. And I liked that ending better - so it worked for me! :D
