I Am Linked to the Batmobile

I have never much cared for the idea of making movies out of comic books simply because comics are a very genre-specific medium. It’s easy to flip through a comic and not think twice about people running around in brightly-colored tights, etc, but when seen in “real-life” the concept loses its appeal somewhat. Also I’m not a big fan of certain companies trying to crank out as many comic-related movies as they can while the whole “comic book fad” is in full swing because the quality diminishes with each film (at least that’s my opinion).

That being said, there are a few movies that were done very well – some staying in step with the comics. The following list corresponds more with my enjoyment rather than how true they were to the comics. IMO Spiderman (1 & 2) has captured the essence of not straying too far from the origin, and was a great movie to boot. The Superman movies were great for their time (my fingers are crossed for the newest adaptation). X-Men was tricky because unless you were familiar with the characters you were pretty lost. There was no way they could cover every character’s origin and still have time for action, and I enjoyed X2 even more than the first. Hellboy: good stuff =) The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was neat as well. The Punisher was cool up to the point when Travolta was shown – that guy just plain sucks.

Which brings me to Batman Begins. I have only two words for this movie: Marvel who?

I’m not going to give a play-by-play breakdown of what worked and what didn’t - you can find that on someone else’s blog. The whole movie simply rocked. Period.

What’s really cool is that a company we partner with frequently (located in Rayne, Louisiana) for events, tires for our vehicles, etc supplied those 44” tires on the Batmobile. Still trying to get some free stuff, lol…

J out.

Dude I said full review???????? thats cool about the wheels!!! and good for you saying "Marvel Who" stick it to'm

I think that the movie was really good. I was surprised when I saw Mr. Zsasz in the movie. If there is a sequal, I'm not sure if the joker is gonna be the villain because sequals don't always pick up where the last one left off. This movie was great 'cause it was more about batman than the villains.

yes. it rocked....it rocked my boat man....
