    Mine could change on any given day depending on my mood. Lebowski would always be right there at the top though.

    Sin City is probably the most directly reinterpreted comic book movie done yet. i still have all of those original issues.

    Five best comic movies IMO are something like (or maybe 5 favorite)

    Maguire Spider-Man 2
    Batman: Dark Knight
    Iron Man
    Sin City
    Avengers

    Winter Soldier, 30 Days of Night and Tank Girl get very honorable mentions.

    30 days of Night is not exactly great, but I do like the movie. I really like the snow setting, vamps coming by ship, there is a lot else to enjoy.

    Visually, that movie nailed Alan Moore's comic. That's what drew me in, those previews.

    Unfortunately, it suffered from what a lot of Zack Snyder's movies do - all style, little substance.

    It was filled with action... but you actually read it, you'd realize this was not the focus of Moore's acclaimed comic. I was disappointed in it...
