I think the only comic book movies I've wanted to sit through a second time were Superman 1 & 2, Ghost World, and American Splendor. And maybe the 60s Batman and The Phantom.

Meh. Although i think Chirs Reeve was a  visually good Superman, i found the campiness, over-acting (General Zod), and tongue-in-cheek storytelling a bit unimpressive.

I think the old Fleischer animated stuff is a much better portrayal of the characters. Just my opinion.

Thanks, ST. You and I are "simpatico" more often than not . . . due in large part to our similar professions IMO.

Just watched the 300 again, and I really like Frank Miller's stuff on this and Sin City, alas, he dropped the ball on The Spirit film last year,except for putting some hot ladies in it such as Scarlett Johanssen, Eva Mendes & Jaime King..
