Except for Jessica Alba shaking her ass and those H.A.M. hoes, I didn't like Sin City. Maybe it was due to the analogy format they tried to use. It might have been better if they stuck to just one story and though Miller's style was hot in the comic, it didn't lend itself well to film. As a matter of fact I might would put Sin City in a WOAT Comic Book-to-Movie adaption.
Some niggas weren't feeling Toby Macguire as Spidey, but you naysayers have to admit when you came out out of the theater after saying Spidey 2, you were "on one." I know I was. I immediately said to myself, "That was greatest comic-to-movie adaption ever. The shit was dope, especially the Spidey/Doc Oc fight on the train, (regardless of the fact that Manhattan doesn't have elevated trains, I can look pass that.) Spidey 2 was hot.
The Avengers was just on some hot shit, though the fanboy in my would have prefered Ant/Giantman and the Wasp as opposed to Hawkeye and The Black Widow, I must admit they did they're thing, beside ScarJo is a badass white girl. The movie easily could have been an issue of Ultimates. Again as with Blade niggas would have thought you were fully if shit, if you told them that The Avengers would get a movie before the JLA.
This is hard choice because #2 and 3 are equal in overall dopeness, but in the end, I had to rate Kick Ass number three due to the dramatic change in the ending from the comic book to the movie. This is one movie that I wish I saw in the theater, shit was just that hot and Hit Girl is a fucking beast. I'm anxiously awaiting the new installment in August, and I'm also going on record to say that Kick Ass 2 might be better than Man of Steel
2 I saw the commerical for 300 and I was like, "Damn they figthing like a muthafucka on this shit. I need to go check this out.[/i] How can you not go see a movie when a nigga screams, "THIS IS SPARTA!", then kicks niggas in a pit. I saw this shit on IMAX, when the fight sequences came, I was like, "What....The....Fuck!" To say 300 went hards is a gross understament. This one of those movies when you leave the theather you feel good about life. Shit was simply epic, and like The Watchmen a fateful adaption of the comic book, even down to the look and feel. I hope the sequel is as dope as the first one.
Nuff said. I feel bad for the next dude to play The Joker in the eventual Batman reboot. Seriously, how do you top Heath Ledger's performance or do you even try? What take do you put on the character to make him your own. I heard a rumor that is Ledger's dumb ass did OD, that was suppose to be The Joker as the judge in TDKR instead of the Scarecrow, that would have been an ill ass cameo. Niggas would have lost their minds. I'm still pissed at Ledger, the nigga dope fiend ass denied the fandom what was definitely going to be another Nolan Batman/Joker movie.
Mind you, this is based solely on movies that I've actually seen
R.I.P. Brandon Lee. We were robbed of a create franchise and a great action star.
"Kneel Before Zod." Has to be one of the most iconic and remember lines in film. Superman II is cool because we get to see Supes fight dudes that on his power level, but with no fucks given. Easily the best of the Donner Superman films.
You can't get a more faithful and accurate interpretation of a comic, than Watchmen. It literally like watching a movie version of the acclaimed miniseries, even though the ending was changed, I actually prefer the movie ending to Watchmen, as opposed to the original ending in the comic books. I have to admit, giant alien squids that kills of half of the population of Manhattan in an effort to bring about world peace is a bit wacky.
The movie that started the Marvel Movieverse. Iron Man proves what's fanboys have said for longest, the source material can translate to film and Iron Man simply proved that. A good, solid, fun movie, that combined humor with action.
If muthafuckas would have came up to said that Blade would be the movie that showed the viability of comic as a revenue source for film studios, you would look at niggas with that "Really?" look on your face. Yours (and my response for that matter would have been something along the lines of, "Niggas, people don't even know who the fuck Blade is, his like a third tier character. If Marvel is bet the farm on a movie it would be X-Men, Spidey, or possibly a solo Wolverine movie." Who would have known that Blade would have been the shit that inspired film studios to put some money behind the X-Men project.
Life After Death = first hiphop album to go diamond.
Biggie is proof you don't need 3+ albums to be in the discussion.
Life After Death, isn't a GOAT album. It's exceptionally good, with some classic tracks, but it isn't the GOAT because of Going Back to Cali Mo Bee used the trite More Bounce loop way after it was played out in blatant attempt to by Big to show he had no problems with the West Coast. Unlike Ready to Die where every song with the shit, Life After Death just didn't have that same effect. If Biggie hadn't died, Life After Death would have gotten four or four and half mics in The Source instead of five.[/i] In other to be considered the GOAT an lyricist needs:
