I think with Dark Knight you're confusing best with top grossing.

THats a tall order. I have to see it to believe it. Even though the comic is well worth the read, and im sure that the movie wil be more fun than a barrel of monkeys...i doubt that IMO..it will overtake THE DARK KNIGHT as one of the best made comic book movies made.

ok let me explain a little clearer... The Dark Knight was a better movie, but they kind of played with the comic source material and took liberties. Kick Ass like Watchmen was a very accurate to the source material, not especially the superior film.

True, true,....I cant truly compare until after i watch kick ass.

now, some great adaptations of comics or graphic novels..
HISTORY OF VIOLENCE and ROAD TO PERDITION..has to be in my top 10, maybe top 5...as far as films go.

there was something i just didn't like about kick-ass. i think it was the fact hit-girl was far more interesting and kick-ass never really did anything. he was like a spectator in his own movie.

it was almost like a video game commercial. it gave you everything you really needed with flash and explosions but little to no story.

my top comic movies (that i'm sure everyone will hate) are
1: watchmen (ultimate cut)
2: dark knight
3: the incredibles/or coraline
4: the specials
5: iron man
6: the crow
7: monkeybone
8: sin city
9: xmen 2
10: weird science

i've never met another person who liked it. except my daughter. but she's almost 4 so her opinion doesn't count.

it's the same as another movie i love Southland Tales
literally everyone i know acts as if watching Southland Tales gave them aids of the eyes.

I did 2........but, i went in knowing that it was going to be something out of the ordinary. Plus, Richard Kelly is always putting something in his movie related to quantum mechanics or other type of abstract concept....im sure its because of his father.

i wish he had done better on the box. i wanted to love it but ...that fucking ending. it was too cliche. it was m knight+twilight zone= making the twist of all twists. it was very unsatisfying.
i loved the vibe the box gave off though. very 70's.
