V for Vendetta (2006)

Legendary comic book writer Alan Moore (Watchmen, From Hell) recently denounced Andy and Larry Wachowski's screenplay adaptation of V for Vendetta, but that's just who he is. If fans had observed him smiling and embracing a giant, corporate movie, he would have lost some of his mythic outsider status. read more...

Spider-Man (2002)

My four favorite comic books growing up were Batman, The Uncanny X-Men, The Amazing Spider-Man and Superman. Of all the movies based on those heroes, Sam Raimi's new Spider-Man is the best. For starters, the movie stays very faithful to the ideas behind the Marvel Comics -- that superheroes are people too. Superman and Batman lead interesting lives, but Peter Parker, Spider-Man's alter ego, has more than his share of problems, which makes him probably the most interesting super-hero around, both in costume and in civvies. read more...

Robocop (2014)

Very few movie remakes ever live up to the originals, and that's certainly the case with the 2014 Robocop. However, taken on its own, the new movie is a fairly solid entertainment with some interesting ideas, strong visual and sound effects, and a great cast. As an action flick, it's quick, intense, and rattling. read more...
