Best Comic Book Film of the Year Update

With the release of Batman Begins fast approaching, and given that my last Comic Movie review was Elektra, I think it is only fair to provide a list of Comic Book movies released in 2005 in order of quality.

  • 1. Constantine 3.5 stars. Based on DC Comics Hellblazer title, this movie was surprisingly good.

  • 2. Elektra. See above post, but really it is only #2 because of Terence Stamp.

  • 3. Sin City 2.5 stars. Just watch the Marv sequence and the five minutes by Tarantino. Other than that it is a simulacrum, of a simulacrum, of a simulacrum, of a simulacrum, of a simulacrum, of reality. If you don't know what that means, it means you should watch Touch of Evil and forget Sin City was ever made. Well, except for the Marv part.

  • 4. Son of the Mask. I have to be honest, I haven't seen this yet. I am afraid, very afraid.
