Neorama’s Top Five Comic Book Movies

Usually, when I hear that Hollywood is making a movie based on something I love, I cringe at the ways in which I imagine they are going to ruin it. However, over the past couple years, they have created some really great movies based on some legendary comic books and characters. Here is our top five:

5.   This film from Robert Rodriguez is nearly a panel by panel remake of the series written by Frank Miller. With its film noir style, amazing camera work, and an all-star cast, it is no wonder that Sin City has made it onto this list.

4. Groundbreaking is just one of the ways to describe this film from Zack Snyder (based on yet another Frank Miller story). Other ways to describe include: action-packed, bloody, exhilerating, and amazing. Utilizing the bullet time film technique originated from The Matrix in a swords and sandels action film was a wise choice from the director, adding to the granduer of the Spartan warriors in 300.

3. What can we say, watching this movie just makes you want to dress like a pilgrim and overthrow your government. Directed by James McTeigue who worked on all three Matrix films, Dark City, and more is an updated version of Alan Moore’s graphic novel by the same name. It is nothing less than inspiring and features all the strangeness that one would expect from Alan Moore.

2. The first film produced entirely by Marvel, they threw in everything and the kitchen sink when they made this movie. Granted they updated the origin story to fit in more with modern times, but the result was a action-packed, special effects extravaganza that lends itself quite easily to repeat viewing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Having easily proven itself the king of comic book movies, Chris Nolan’s take on Batman has everyone whirling. Bale plays millionare Bruce Wayne and Batman with equal skill, Ledger’s Joker is now legendary, Ekhart as Two-Face by far tops Tommy Lee Jones’ version, and it sits at #2 in all time box office earnings with $504,798,337 and climbing under its belt.
