Welcome to…Movie Battle! The place where two films go head-to-head and you the people will choose the winner!
Last week’s battle between two of 2010’s popular movies, Kick Ass and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, I thought it would turn out to be a close battle but it turned out that Kick Ass does kick ass! And Kick Ass unanimously defeats Scott Pilgrim vs. The World with 73% of the votes. Even though Kick Ass is a fun and great movie but ultimately I just prefer Scott Pilgrim a lot more. But, hey you guys choose the winner, so congrats to Kick Ass!!
This week I am going to continue the comic book adaptation films. Both of these films are two of the most visually striking films that you will ever see. Both films provide some unforgettable characters and stories that will make you go out and get the graphic novels.
Are You Ready?!
Now for the Introductions…take it away Fink!
In the blue corner: 300’s Zack Snyder brings Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ critically acclaimed comic book to big screen…I present to you Watchmen!!!!!!
In the red corner: Robert Rodriquez and creator Frank Miller brings this Eisner Award winning comic series to the big screen…I bring you Sin City!!!!!
Now lets hear from the experts….
“A hard piece to adapt in the first place, Watchmen provides a lot of action, good performances, and pretty cinematography to hold you over” – Dan The Man’s Movie Reviews
“Bleak, cynical, bereft of the typical happy trappings of superhero movies, “Watchmen” stands out amongst its superhero movie brethren almost as much as Alan Moore’s comics stood out in the early 80s.” – Fog’s Movie Reviews
“It all works on a believable level with convincing characters (except one, none of them has any form of super human powers) who inhabit a bleak and convincing, alternate modern world, making it probably the best comic book adaptation I’ve seen so far.(Watchmen)” – Marked Movies
Now lets take you to The Tale of The Tape….
The Filmster’s X-Factor:
Rorschach! He is one of the best Watchmen characters and played so well by Jackie Earle Haley. Rorschach is one of the reasons why the Watchmen comics and film are so good.
The Filmster’s Pick:
Watchmen all around has the best characters and a much better story. Rorschach is a character that everyone can root for and the open credits of Watchmen was a brilliant idea by Zach Snyder.
