With the special Spider-Man 3 footage airing on TV tonight, and since Zack Snyder's 300 is opening this weekend, I felt it was necessary that we switch things up a bit. So, instead of your regular old Monday Morning Poll, I'm turning out the lights for the first ever Monday Night Poll. (Oh yeah, I can almost hear John Madden calling out the names of some fantastic comic-based films while I write. And you know what -- I kinda want to smack him.) Yes, tonight's poll shouldn't be too hard to figure out; basically, I'm looking for your favorite film(s) based on a comic book or graphic novel (or are they the same thing ... I forgot?).
Recently, Moviefone shelled out their Best Movies Based on Comic Books list featuring 20 pics that range from "Totally awesome!" to "Wait, why and how did that make it in there, again? Mystery Men? Seriously?" Sin City nabbed the top spot, followed closely behind by Batman Begins, Spider-Man 2, X2: X-Men United and Superman: The Movie. While I have to agree with their top five, I was disappointed to see that my Moviefone buds placed Superman Returns (in a tie alongside Superman II) in the number nine spot, in front of Tim Burton's original Batman (which placed tenth). I mean, not only does Superman II deserve its own spot, but Superman Returns should have flew in behind Burton's Batman -- at least, according to this comic book moron. And hey, how about we throw the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie a bone?
So, I ask you: What's your favorite film based on a comic book? And, do you agree or disagree with Moviefone's list?
