Which is your favorite or least favorite comic book-turned-movie?

Comic book-turned-movie will be a term I'm going to take literally.  As a devote (and rather rabid) comic book fan, it's hard for me to pick a firm selection.  The Dark Knight was outstanding, the first two Spider-Man were incredibly well-done, and Iron Man blew my mind.  (There are so many more movies, I realise this, but I don't want to start a rave now).

However, with the most recent release of Captain America, a movie I was able to predict throughout every scene because of my knowledge of the comics, I would say it's the most... realistic interpretation.  Chris Evans played a perfect Steve Rogers, and I was swept so deep into the movie that in all honesty, I found no flaws in it.

None.  It was just... appropriate.  It was everything I wanted and more.

Others may disagree, but it's my firm belief that if your opinion differs from mine, it's inadequate or simply incorrect.  (Okay, so I may be kidding here).

However, Marvel, you did one good with the Captain.  Better than Thor, anyway.  That's harsh, as Thor was well done; however, I will forever have issues with the Natalie Portman character involvement.  She was just annoying, they're whole romance was too fast and too full of bullshit to take seriously, and if she hadn't existed in the movie, I would have loved it even more.

Thor's a playboy.  She's annoying.   

However, I'll take Natalie Portman over the HORRIBLE decision of Scarlette Johannson as Black Widow.  1) choose a decent actress and 2) CHOOSE SOMEONE WHO CAN ACTUALLY BE BLACK WIDOW!  WTF WAS THAT SHIT IN IRON MAN 2?!  NO!  JUST NO!

And folks, that is all~.

Writer's Block: Look into my crystal ball

Where do you see yourself in five years or where don’t you see yourself? Why?

I don't see myself anywhere in 5 years. I keep trying to look at what wonders I can come up with but I keep hitting a mental block. In high school, I would see myself everywhere; but once life got real, I feel frozen. My dreams stood still, and I've grown worried of everything. I guess I just have trouble committing to such ideas. 

Writer's Block: Breaking the bad

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

My ultimate bad habit is anxiety. I over think everything because of this. I feel afraid to commit or even grow to the idea that I'm important because of this. So yeah, when I can stop being nervous and afraid; I can start living life the way I am meant to live it.

Lord Darth Vader is one of the all time best villains - from the moment he stepped aboard the captured rebel ship in Star Wars, he had real presence and real, ominous menace, aided and abetted by his strangulation of the ship's Captain a few minutes later. The guy is completely ruthless, standing by and allowing the destruction of an entire planet, and billions of people in order to get what he wanted, information on the location of the rebel base. In a dictionary next to the definition of "badass" is a picture of Darth Vader.

Magneto is my favorite villain. He's an interesting case, because if he weren't an anti-normie racist and a terrorist, he'd be a good guy, fighting for recognition for mutant rights. Seeing as he was in a Nazi concentration camp as a child, I'd say it's a case of he became the thing he hated most.

Which is your favorite or least favorite comic book-turned-movie?


I'll pick three favourites because I strongly feel that they deserve to be mentioned.

1. X-men 1.

Even the deviations from canon (like Rogue) were okay because the movie captured the atmosphere and essence of the comic almost perfectly. Especially because I mean the atmosphere of the classic Claremont stuff.)

I've been a fan since I found the comics when I was about eleven. When other girls were drooling over New Kids on the Block, my first crush was Wolverine. Goddammit, he was cool, not lame like members of some completely commercial boy band. My opinion about body hair has changed but he was still pretty hot fighting in that cage half-naked. ;D

2. 300.

I practically worship Frank Miller. His stuff is the epitome of badass-ness and I appreciate that. The idealism, how the Spartan warriors were unafraid and ready to die. Wow. I love big, bloody battle scenes and 300 really delivered here. Beautiful violence FTW!

Speaking about the visuals... I was watching the movie with a friend and just when I commented how cool and interesting it was in the visual sense, there was the Spartan army, also known as a lot of handsome, half-naked men, marching in the screen, and my friend burst in uncontrollable laughter. The narrator's voice was somewhat unintentionally comical, though. And yes, I'm one of those people who have screamed "This is Spartaaaa!" in public. XD

I also liked the Watchmen movie a lot. I fangirl (I don't know if that's a verb but... now it is.) Alan Moore just as much as Miller and the movie delivers quite well but it's definitely not as good as the graphic novel. Veidt and Rorschach were just as epic as they are in the comic but there were also serious problems. Especially that Night Owl (who's lame anyways) could have never managed to beat Ozymandias in a fight.

Least favourite: The Crow.
This is mostly because I love the graphic novel. The movie is not bad and there must be a lot worse ones but I haven't watched that many movies based on comics. It's visually impressive and if the was no original graphic novel, I'd still like it. I loved it when I saw it but my opinion changed completely when I discovered what it should have been.

It should have been dark, dirty and hopeless but instead it was ...Hollywood. The self-injury scenes in the comic were strong and emotional. The pain was real. None of that in the movie. The little girl wasn't irritating (which is somewhat uncommon when it comes to child characters) but her role was too big. It made the atmosphere too human. Not to mention that the Crow himself was too human. He even smiled warmly and shyly once.

Toss up between Spider-Man and Iron Man, definitely. I'm sorry people, but Tobey Maguire frickin' is Spidey.

Don't get me wrong, I love Andrew Garfield. His performance in The Social Network was pretty phenomenal, I thought - hell, I thought he stood up great next to Jesse Eisenberg, and that's tough to match.

But as Spider-Man? Even The Amazing Spider-Man incarnation? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Just. Absolutely not.

Also - RDJ as Tony Stark is the most insanely genius move anybody in the history of casting has ever made. Seriously. Get that casting director to an award ceremony and medal their ass up.

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?

That's easy. (in no particular order)
1) Khan. Yes,that KHAAAAANN! because he's so awful but he's also so incredibly cool.
2) John Marcone. he's not really a villain, per se, since he's actually usually helping Dresden, but he's my favorite character so he's on the list.
3) Nicodemus. He scares me to death and I love it! My favorite books are Death Masks, Dead Beat, and Small Favor for a reason.
4) Severus Snape. Again, not actually a bad guy, but every one thought he was through all of the books (not me! I had faith!). And again, my favorite character.
5) Sue Sylvester. Because she tries so hard to be evil, but in the end she always comes through when it matters.
6) Voldemort. Because he's so evil and loves it. He just embraces his lack of soul and plays ball. It's great.
7) Niska. Same reasons as Voldemort. Fantastically evil character.
8) James Moriarty. Because being able to give Sherlock Holmes a run for his money is never not impressive.
9) Sharpay Evans. Because she's just so stupid sometimes and I love HSM. Don't judge. 
10) Uther Pendgraon. Because Giles is really hot in a crown and leathers. Also, he's Arthur's dad and that makes him cool by default.
11) Prince Zuko. He's just adorable, okay? And, again, he turns out to be a god guy and is my favorite character.

I'm just.... gonna be done now. It's nearing 2am and I could keep doing this all night.

My favourite comic book-turned-movie is Batman; I've loved him ever since I was a kid. I think it was because I had a secret love of bats and didn't want to admit it. The fact that he stopped at nothing, including beating the living shit out of someone to get the job done helped too.

My least fav is The Green Lantern; I never understood how they were chosen, how their rings were supposed to work, their costumes were dull and the same, and the idea that anything yellow could stop them seemed stupid beyond reason.

I like all things Marvel. Daredevil, Spiderman, The Hulk, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, X-Men, Captain America, Thor, you name it.

I don't hate any comic book-turned movies, but Green Lantern I didn't like so much. I don't know why, but it turned out to be meh for me.

I love Phoenix, Jean Grey!
But once in the movie, she sucks. I mean, they could have chosen a prettier actress... because the one they chose is way too old :/

But Phoenix is the best to me, after all she's the most powerful mutant and can revive.
When Jean Grey takes over she's caring, mature and stuff. And when Phoenix does, the beast is released, it's beautiful to see.

I love her!

The only thing that came to my mind instanteously here was my all-time favorite Disney movie, 1996's Hunchback of Notre Dame, and probably, arguably, Disney's best and most sinister, multi-layered antagonist, Judge Claude Frollo. What made him so deliciously evil? Well, the fact that for one, he already had power and money, the things most other villains hope to achieve in their villainy. No, what made this dude so evil was the fact that he was so human...he wanted the love of a woman he couldn't have. It's a story as old as time. I just remember the first time I saw HoND in theatres about six weeks after it's release ( I was a late-comer to the movie) and then after that must have seen it twenty times in the theatre alone. I went and saw the Disneyland fanfare of Festival of Fools a total of three times ( each time going with a different friend to see it) and started going on this mad whirlwind of collecting as much Hunchback of Notre Dame merchandise as I could. It was pretty much because of my fascination with Frollo as to why that collection started, too. It started OFF with my buying an action figure of Frollo and a pen set at the Disney Store. And dammit, ever since then...LOL



But yeah, he was the first villain to come to mind.



Other villains include Dr. Doom, ( I don't think I need to expound on him as to why he's so cool as a villain) Lord Valdemort ( even though I am not a Harry Potter fan, I know enough of what I've seen to say that he's a badass villain, not to mention Lucius and Draco Malfoy from that series as well), Scar from The Lion King ( okay, he wanted power too, but who cares? Anything voiced by Jeremy Irons is magnificent!).


I could also say Dr.Hannibal Lecter, because he's considered the 'antagonist' in the Silence of the Lambs and the subsequent Hannibal tales by Thomas Harris, as I consider him to be the most Elegant Sadist in the world. Because of that, he was a sophisticated villain. I don't have a lot of patience for stupid or boorish villains, I like villains who are suave and intelligent, or highly sophisticated, for the most part, as well as being just plain kick-ass and bad-ass in so many ways. And Lecter was a lot like Frollo in that sense...a true leader who was smart, worldly, already had money and power, and both wanted their women...Esmeralda, and Clarice Starling. Although of course, well, we know Frollo didn't get Esmeralda. Unfortunately.

It's currently not on tv. But I'd have to say the queen from V. She definitely has shown she will do whatever it takes to get done what she wants done.
Which is totally taking over the earth with her lizard-alien army!
Love it, she is very good at the roll, and mostly she creeps me out on the show.
Esp when you know she is about to shed part of her human skin to kill someone in a pretty brutal way.
Usually she uses her very long crocodile like tail to impale said victim.
Can't wait till it comes back on ABC!
It's really one of their only good shows!

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?

So many that I love. Okay, first of all, Barbossa and Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean. So Barbossa sort of turned good after the first movie, I don't care, he still counts. He was evil in the first movie and it was awesome. Davy Jones isn't really evil, like I can kind of feel sorry for him, but he's still pretty awesome. I think just the fact that he either takes you on his ship or just kills you and doesn't do his duty anymore of ferrying the souls to the other side makes him a pretty bad guy, even if his reason for doing it was because of a broken heart, I guess you can say. 

I love Disney movie villains too. (POTC is a Disney movie... but in my mind, when I say Disney movie I mean like, cartoon Disney movie). First off, Judge Claude Frollo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He is just pure evil and what makes it even better if he's a man of god. Like he gets so obsessed with killing the gypsies because they don't follow the same rules. But then he starts feeling attracted to Esmeralda and just blah he's so evil it's awesome.

Stuff like that is stupid and illogical. Leaving your family and friends for the one you love who may or may not destroy your heart. Why would you move 1100 miles away (just a random figure off the top of my head) from everything you know (including a job) with nothing but hope? 

Sounds really stupid to me.

Which is your favorite or least favorite comic book-turned-movie?

Ok, it's 5am, my journal has been pretty sparse recently, and I'm bored. SO! Writer's Block.

My favourite is The Crow. It's a close call between The Crow or Batman Returns, but in true hipstergoth style, the (slightly) more obscure film wins out. I'm a sucker for all that gothic gritty angst-ridden super zombie rockstar stuff, and, IDK, it's just one of those films I can watch over and over again and never get sick of, which is rare for me (though Batman Returns is another of my "OMG BESTEST FILMS EVER!", so it's a really close call). It sort of helps The Crow's case that Brandon Lee looked smokin' hot in mime makeup. Can't say that about many people.

My least favourite? The Fantastic Four films. Not even cheesy-good. And the villain in the first movie looked like the guy from the Orange Mobile "Film Pitch" adverts. TFF bores me anyway, though, so that might have something to do with my complete lack of enjoyment. Close second: Any Punisher movie. Because nerd!rage.

The Joker.

Unequivocally. Unquestionably. Unmistakably. Although there were some good answers already brought up in this, how has Joker not been mentioned? And Voldemort's been up what, 5 times? I mean, sure, he was a serious threat, he was a bad guy, but he wasn't a good VILLAIN. He worked too much in the shadows and we didn't see enough of him to really get a feel, in my opinion. Hell, Tom Riddle was more despicable in true villain fashion than Voldemort.

But Joker, he was everything a villain should be. He was heartless and cruel, he was twisted and depraved, bitter, resentful, vengeful, deliberate and spontaneous, opportunistic, stubborn... so very human, but so far removed from humanity. Joker is my ideal villain. There's nobody that can compare to how I love this man. I don't know nearly enough Batman lore, but he still became the villain to which all other villains are compared. Oh, Joker, you will always be the one for me. ♥

(And just so you other writer's block participants know, Snape's not a villain, he's an antagonist. They're not the same thing.)

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?

I think one of my favorite things about all my favorite series' is that they always have adversaries that put up a good fight.  In no particular order.


1. Lord Voldemort.  

I mean, come on, you can' t NOT be afraid of this guy.  And he's not some bumbling baddie, either.  He's smart, he's a talented wizard and he used to be Tom Marvelo Riddle who was incredibly gifted and under different circumstances, could've used his gift for the greater good.  But...no, he didn't.

2. Darth Vader.

A reeeeally cose tie here.  Darth Vader is the Bad Assiest of all Bad Asses.  And he used to be one of the good guys but turned evil.  And come on, you have to respect the guy.  How can you not?

3  Angelus

Angelus was just pure, unadulterated evil.  Unlike Angel who used his bad-ass-ness for good, Angelus killed because he LIKED IT.  And Angelus was just fun...and had some of the best one-liners in Buffy.  And what made him so deliciously evil is that we knew him first as a good guy. Yes, there's a theme here.  

"The last time I did this, we didn't even have chainsaws."


4. Cigarette Smoking Man

What made him so scary is when he was the most human and you could kind of see where he was coming from.  

5. Sue Sylvester

Sue works hard to get where she's gotten.  She's driven, she's determined, and it's just so much fun to see what cracky scheme she'll cook up next, and what she'll do to make Will squirm.  And if she wasn't so...whacked, she'd be admirable.  And no, she shouldn't be number four, but there's just so much eviillity to be celebrated.

6. Drucilla (Buffy)

She's just so...crazy...and that's what makes her so dangerous.  And she also has some of the best lines.

"Met an old man.  Didn't like 'im.  He got stuck in my teeth."

7.  Javert

Javert is awesome because he WOULD be heroic in another story.  But since he's hunting for ValJean, he's our bad guy and he's so relatable.

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?

Sorry, I'm picking a Shakespeare villain, not a television or movie villain. (Though technically they made his plays into movies too so.. I guess in a way it does count :P)

My favorite villain is definitely without a doubt Iago from the tragedy Othello.
He is such a deliciously evil villain, and a topic that was often brought up in class is that, even though he is SO evil, he's such a genius, and that none of us in the class would mind having a nice cup of tea with him. 
I think what makes him so deliciously evil is that, he so effortlessly made everybody into his little pawns. He took the one insecurity Othello had (which was his inability to understand love, and why Desdemona loved him) and played it so hard that it drove the man crazy.
I think a lot of villains could take a lesson from him, honestly. Psychological warfare isn't used as often as it should be in these Good vs. Evil scenarios.

Must be something wrong with me. I am firmly entrenched in reality and really do not view television/movie/media villians or heroes as anything but characters, not real people.

Besides, aren't there enough villians in the real world without spending a whole lot of time on imaginary ones? Life is hard enough, me thinks.

Nazis!
That answer shouldn't really require that much explanation.  Indiana Jones, I think first made the best use of Nazis as goons.  Some people argue that its not fair to the German people to keep bringing up the Nazis, but I think, certainly in Indiana Jones that their origin is not as important as the fact that they are just an evil bunch of goons led by an evil dictator.
And they are never ending.  If you get rid of one, there's two more to take his place.  How frustrating is that for any hero?

Least favorite is easy.  That 3rd X-Men movie...The Last Stand or whatever it was called.  That movie is beyond terrible.  And it makes me so, so angry!!!

Favorite is a little more difficult.  I always liked the Batman movies...the old ones & the new ones.  (Well, except for that one w/ George Clooney & Arnold. That was bad.)  I'm also looking forward to the next one...especially because they've been filming it here for weeks now.  Yesterday it snowed downtown for Batman.  :)  But you know, I'm gonna go w/ X-Men again.  I really liked the 1st 2 movies & I absolutely loved First Class.

Off the top of my head, Patrick Bateman. I think he's my favorite because he is so real. There could be a Patrick walking down the street with you and you wouldn't know. He could be successful too. Bret Easton Ellis did a really impressive job creating this character and putting so much detail into his sickness that the thought alone will utterly make your skin crawl. At the same time though, I can't help but love the story.

I'm only answering this qestion because the truth is the majority of the time I pefer the villains to the hero. Might this say something about my character? Maybe. This rule mostly applies to cartoon villains though and its a mystery to me why most kids don't feel the same way. Hades was fucking hilarious.

It's no secret that I'm an unapologetic Greed fan. Sure; there was Light before him, and Lelouch after, but there is something about that homonculus that absolutely drives me crazy.

I enjoy watching these characters struggle with good intentions. Evil is usually a byproduct of some misguided effort in my favorite stories. Perhaps it is a bit difficult for me to enjoy or accept a character who carries out wrongdoing without apology, as I don't really believe in a wholly evil human being. Not that I want to be proven wrong, either.

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?


1. To pick only one Disney villain, I’d go with Maleficent (sorry, Ursula; sorry, Gaston). Maleficent is a classic for a reason. She was top dog before the rest of the cast was born. The whole turning into a dragon thing? That’s a woman of style and substance.

2. The Star Trek villain who springs to mind is the Klingon captain from "The Trouble With Tribbles." The one who called Kirk a “swaggering, tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood.” Nailed that one, sir. I like your style. You get to protect Klingon economic interests with a modicum of diplomacy (towards the station hosts, at least) while still provoking a pleasing, “The Federation started it!” altercation.

3. In the Buffyverse I shall limit myself to the villains who don’t start good or neutral then go spoilery bad. That knocks me down to my second favorite, one season’s worth of Spike and Drusilla.

Let me tell you about Drusilla. Hauntingly beautiful woman...er, vampire. I love the wardrobe - red dresses and lace in formal cuts. She does this thing where she emotes with her whole body, always swaying in concert with some invisible wind. Ordinarily I don’t go in for insane characters, but she pulls it off. The madness plays from place to place, sometimes like a whimsical child, sometimes like a crazed seeress, sometimes like an insatiable dealer of cruelty. Plus, at least three points in Unfair Advantage: Psychic. Exquisite.

And Spike. He puts the “lust” in “bloodlust.” He smilingly sweeps or swaggers onto the scene and every line of him tells you that he’s ready to kill or fuck everyone in the room, all with a song in his heart. He’s a leader of vampires, due less to charisma than to his method of effortlessly executing the nearest person standing until everybody else falls in line. Let's leave aside the appalling personal aesthetic; you can almost forget it when he moves and speaks and uses his face alone to say a dozen things in the space of a few seconds. He’s raw. Mesmerizing. Fun.

4. Shout out to Boba Fett, forever and always. I thought his origin was weird, but in the original series I thought he was the coolest guy ever. Blasters, bitches. I got your “clumsy and random” right here.

5. And, finally, Nazis. I’m thinking of Indiana Jones here, but honestly, Nazis are such all-purpose villains - hey, doing something in the 30s-early 40s? Need a whole lot of human beings to fight and kill without any moral ambiguity? Write in some Nazis! I am fascinated by their particular role in movie culture. They're easy cultural shorthand: Everybody knows who they are and everybody favors beating them up.

Of these, I think Spike/Dru is the pair I would least want to exist, anywhere, ever. Wait, Nazis are the ones I would least want to exist ever. But since we blew our chance there, I’ll say Spike/Dru should definitely not get an invite. Give me a dragon any day. At least she wouldn’t look at you like that before destroying you.

My favorite villain is Magneto from the X-Men movies. What makes him sophisticated is the fact that he's not your average villain. His past and his tragic history made him what he is now, and if you think about it, it's not surprising he turned out this way. If you trace his life from when he was a little kid, a holocaust survivor, you can see how much pain and suffering he went through. That must be quite overwhelming. You can kinda see where he's coming from when he proposes that there can never be peace between mutants and humans. In his entire life, he never knew peace. And all the anger, bitterness and resentment he has for the entire world is understandable. You end up feeling sympathetic for the character. And the fact that he possesses enormous powers only magnifies the greatness of his character.

Three spring to mind straight away:

Xantos - Gargoyles

Who could not love this guy? He was a nasty piece of work but he did it all in STYLE and on more than one occasion just to be a giantic troll.

The Joker/Harley Quinn - Batman

I love this guy. The fact he's clearly insane and does shit for the HELL of it, shot Barbara Gordon yet oddly took no joy out of it... He's a sick twisted individual but he does things because he can and pisses around while doing it for a laugh. Harley is naturally adorable and so glad she became cannon.

Incidently I love a helluva lot of characters from that universe.

Ganondorf - Ocarina of Time


Sure he's a game one but he was an evil bastard who DID shit. You saw him wreak everything known to man and what'd happen if you fucked up. I don't know I think because of this he became my brains most memorable villian ever in gaming just for doing that.

Hannibal Lecter, but I'm talking more about the books than the movies.  I got quite hooked on them at one time, and the more I read them, the more the evil stuff  seemed normal and acceptable.  I don't indulge any more, or in anything similar, because I didn't like what they were doing to my head.

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?

i have a tendency to like villains that confuse me.  like every single character on 'lost' was some sort of bad guy at one point or another.  although from a fashion standpoint, they're awful :)

the two best fashion villains i've seen lately are the stepmother from 'Enchanted', played by Susan Sarandon and whoever the bad guy was in 'The Princess and the Frog'. 





Susan Sarandon, as you can see, is just a smidge pushed over the top as far as styling goes, but because she's such a good actress she can pull it off.  and it's quite difficult to pull off that much makeup.

i like the other guy i think just because i love new orleans.  honestly, if you want a food vacation it's the best place to go.  i think it's this guy's accessories though that really make his character.  the tooth necklace, skull and crossbones tophat, sinister line mustache... there is of course a lot to do with his personage and the bodytype and mannerisms they gave the character, but the outfit is subtly efficient. 

it's nice to see that simple and over-the-top can get the same message across.  it's a good message for personal style as well!

Ba'al. (Correctly pronounced with a long a and sounding more like 'bale'.)



Cliff Simon first played him as a background character in the Stargate SG1 episode "Summit". He was supposed to be the embodiment of the historical god of the Midianites and the Amalakites. He became my favorite 'bad guy" in the SG1 episode, "Abyss", where he did not seem as petty as the other false gods.  Pain, torture, and oppression were more 'business-like' for him.  Although all the Goa'uld were over the top evil stereotypes, he seemed to be the most believable. He always smiled when he was angry and used words more often than force. In a later episode, he did come to earth and disguise himself as a corporate giant! He planned all his conquests like a game of chess. He truly believed that he was superior. Much more than Sokar, who was supposed to the Devil, he seemed the most like our real adversary.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

There are so many villains that I love. I don't think I can pick just one. However, I think I will go with the Phantom of the Opera. Technically, he would be the villain but he has such a sexy voice I can't help but to love him!

Which is your favorite or least favorite comic book-turned-movie?


I liked the Disney Dick Tracy movie very much, and I have it on DVD. For a long time it was all the Dick Tracy I had apart from a couple of strips reprinted in the Penguin Book of Comics - which had been enough to make me a fan.

It had a decent plot, involved lots of classic villains, and had a wonderful cartoonish feel with big blocks of colour, simplified lines and stark black backgrounds.

1990? Was it really? Cripes.

Which is your favorite or least favorite comic book-turned-movie?


My favourite comic book/graphic novel-turned-movie is Sin City - well-executed, well-acted, great stories (if rather dark) and not a dull, trite or bad moment.

At the other end of the spectrum - and I know I'm not going to surprise anyone but - my least favourite is Catwoman. I have nothing against girl power (far from it, I dig strong, confident, assertive women) but this movie made it look like a banal cliche, cloyingly self-satisfied and a little holier-than-thou about the whole "girl power" bit, and all around it was a heap of crap. Daredevil was piffle too, but at least I can laugh about it.

=))) Анна Каренина в исполнении Киры Найтли! Нет, ну надо же было американцам придумать нарисовать комикс по этому произведению классики (как бы сказал задорнов - "нуу туупыыые"), да еще и снять фильм с актрисой, которая на эту роль совершенно не подходит. Нет, я конечно люблю ее, но надо было Кейт Уинслет приглашать, в ней драматизма намного больше!

Frollo from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". In my opinion, he's not only the darkest, but most realistic of all Disney movie villians. The song "Hellfire" in itself is just....whoa. Talk about getting crap past the radar, lol.

Honorable mention to the Joker. He's a classic.

Writer's Block: Into the wild

If you could, would you set a zoo animal free? Which one and why?


Just to release into the wild without rehabilitation for release into the wild?

None! Never! This is why...

As much as it would please certain individuals on an emotional level, consider if you will this thought: If the animal was always raised in a Zoological environment, you would condemn this animal to slow and agonizing death.

Those animals that were brought in from the Wild, for non-rehabilitation (from injury or suspected illness) for the sole purpose to release back into the wild or for propagation of the species, from a Zoological environment, would succumb to illness from foreign organisms within that specific environment and poor nutrition from lack of practice of gathering food, if not prepared for release in the wild.

Вопрос дня: Конец

If you had the option to learn the exact moment and details of your death, would you choose to know?

Конечно , узнала бы  , непременно.  Ведь надо привести в порядок  свои  дела, мысли , вещи , в конце концов.   У  всех  попросить прощения,  кого обидела.   Надо   увидеть всех  , кого хотела.   Ах, как много  мы бы сделали , зная о дате своей смерти.  Ведь  каждый умрет ,  а  живем,  как будто   пришли сюда навечно.

My favorite villain is Livia from "I, Claudius". How evil does one have to be to murder your own children and grandchildren for political gain? Amon Goth from "Schindler's List" comes in second. In both cases, they weren't crazy, like Caligula or Hitler. They could feel love and compassion, but consciously chose evil.

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?


My choices aren't so much evil as they are ~morally ambiguous.

In no particular order...

Pyro (X-Men2: X-Men United & X-Men3: The Last Stand)





He's the snarky rebel badboy, what's not to love?
He has no qualms about blowing police cruisers to kingdom come, if that's what it takes to save his own ass.
(Pyro is totally a Slytherin.)
His flame-thrower wrist gadget in X3 is pretty badass, too.
(Oh, and he's played by Aaron Stanford, who is a perfect tiny human.)
(No one ever said I wasn't shallow.)


Scabior (Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & Part 2)




He's a bounty hunter.
(And the ~glam rock god~ of the wizarding world.)
He doesn't care whether he's working for the Ministry of Magic or Voldy, just so he gets his gold.
Dude would turn his own grandmother over if it meant a few extra galleons.
Aaand I'm forever grateful that he got all of Fenrir's parts in the movie adaptation, because Fenrir is the most disgusting creep that ever creeped.
(Also, he's pretty. I warned you I was shallow. Quit judging me.)


Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter Series)







Bully. Bigot. Brat.
That rich kid you always wanted to punch in the teeth.
Junior Death Eater (however reluctant).
(Or senstive & misunderstood dreamboat, to hear Moaning Myrtle tell it.)
He gets a large measure of redeption in the end, but how fun was he to hate in the early movies?
(Tom Felton is totally the anti-Draco.)

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?

Darkness as played by Tim Curry from the 80's movie Legend.

Darkness

He was just so deliciously evil! My personal favorite part is when he is having dinner with Lili, trying to corrupt her. He was just such a fucking badass. Tim Curry at his Evil Best.

If you like Fantasy and have never watched this movie, you should.


And more recently Agent Smtih as played by Hugo Weaving from The Matrix Trilogy
AgentSmithCool
AgentSmithCrazy

I just love this villain. The cadence in which he talks, his overall look and the way he goes from dead serious to lunatic smiling is creepy but makes for a great bad guy. I always like the crazy bad guys and as calm and collected he tries to act, Agent Smith is one insane program.

In both cases it is not JUST the villain but how the actor's in question brought them to life. Hugo Weaving and Tim Curry are both very talented actors that do a great bad guy.
