The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

BingMag.com The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

Comic book films, like the western films of the 1940s and 1950s, have been the main genre of the past two decades. What once seemed strange and unreliable has now become one of the surest business genres, as large studios work tirelessly to make and display adaptations of comic books as much as possible. Of course, comic book movies are not necessarily a genre. A History of Violence and Guardians of the Galaxy are both comic book films, but they are quite different in tone, performance, and theme. Studios want to make comic book works as much as they can, and talented filmmakers also take the opportunity to present their unique and different stories in the form of a comic book film. "Logan", "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "The Amazing Woman" are all very different works, and the audience each considers one of them superior.

Now As comics and superheroes continue their journey without slowing down and with firmness, it is not bad to take this opportunity to look back and identify the best comics each year since the spread of this genre. Many people consider the 2000 film X-Men to be a turning point in the genre, but we should not overlook the radical impact of The Blade in 1998.

We begin our adventure by looking back. , We choose the best comic film every year since 1998, when Blade was released. This list, like any other list, is a matter of taste, and there will undoubtedly be disagreement, and we must keep in mind that this list is not a comprehensive reference, and it is intended to arouse thoughts.

1998 - Blade

  • Director: Stephen Norrington
  • Actors: Wesley Snipes, Stephen Dorf, Sana Latten
  • Raton Tomitoz Score: 56 out of 100
  • IMDb Score to Movie: 7.1 out of 10

When you look at the enduring legacy of Marvel Comics and the current dominance of the Marvel movie world at the box office, it seems that the movie world and the comic book world have always had this, but not so much. In fact, Marvel Entertainment filed for bankruptcy just a few years before Blade paved the way for the film movement in 1998 (which changed the course of contemporary filmmaking). The last film based on a Marvel character to hit theaters was Howard Ardeke in 1986 (which was also the first film since Captain America in 1944), and Blade was Marvel's first film after two very poor films, Punisher and Captain. America was in the 90s. Contrary to many people's beliefs, the film was a huge success, grossing $ 131 million at the box office with a budget of $ 46 million. Adapted from one of the characters in the Marvel comics, the vampire hunter recreated by Wesley Snipes. The film was directed by Stephen Norrington, based on a screenplay by David Guyer, who later became known as a Carbold character in the Dysy series, working on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight films and Ducie Zack Snyder's Expanded World. Next he found. The film still retains its novelty with its beautiful and influential music, the cultural background of Get and, of course, starring the action star of the time, Snipes. Stephen Dorf played the villainous Dean Frost in a fascinating way, and was one of the age-restricting factors for the film's audience, but he made Frost a permanent character, and for years Marvel struggled to find a character like him. To create. Finally, Blade rewrote the rules of the genre and made it clear that comic book movies are not just for kids and die-hard comic book fans, and can be reborn and reshaped without any cloaks, hats, or hidden identities. Be as bloody and bold as possible and inject fresh blood into the veins of cinema.

1999 - Mystery Men

  • Director: Kinka Asher
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Hank Azaria, William Macy
  • Raton Tomitoz Score: 61 out of 100
  • IMDb Score strong> to film: 6.1 out of 10

1999 is one of the best years in the history of cinema, but in terms of comics, it does not matter. So Mysterious Men, a free adaptation of Bob Barden's Flaming Carrot Comics, is easily selected as the best comic book film of the year. This is a very entertaining film that looks a little different, because in it, a group of weak superheroes with inconspicuous powers (such as invisible power that can only be used when it is not needed) are forced to lose the champion city. Save the villain named Casanova Frankenstein (Jeffrey Rush). The Mysterious Men was a little ahead of its time, and it is conceivable that it would have been more successful if it had been released now that the audience is more familiar with the elements of the comic film. In this work, Ben Stiller is an immoral man who has a certain power of anger, but apart from him, the film has various and interesting characters that make this project strange and an interesting and unique comedy.

2000 - X-Men

BingMag.com The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

  • Director: Brian Singer
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Anna Fakin , Jan McClellan
  • Raton Tomitoz Score: 82 out of 100
  • IMDb Score to Movie: > 7.4 out of 10

If Blade helped spark the current wave of superhero movies, X-Men helped define the genre. Brian Singer was heavily criticized for making the franchise's next work, but X-Men was a model for other superhero works still in vogue two decades later. Filmmaker Lauren Schuler-Donner realized the potential and popularity of the X-Men and completed the project in a long, nearly two-decade move, turning it into one of the biggest Hollywood franchises, like the works of James Cameron and Michael Chabon. . Eventually, the famous screenwriter David Heather was hired to narrate The X-Men. The film was a superhero epic, based on social and political backgrounds, and became the best-selling film of the year, proving that superhero films could sell well at the box office.

Part of the film's success The actors were coming back. Veteran actors such as Patrick Stewart and Ian McClane were cast as Professors X and Magento, and one of the greatest talents of the time, Hugh Jackman, was cast as Wolverine. These characters fueled the franchise for another 20 years. The serious approach and theme of the film (and its good performance at the box office) established the place of superhero films in the Hollywood industry, and of course Kevin Faigy should not be forgotten. He is now the director of Marvel Cinematic Universe, having his first experience in film projects in X-Men, and later managed to make more faithful adaptations of comics and create one of the most important attractions of superhero cinema. X-Men is one of the most pivotal works in the history of superhero cinema, from the creative approach to the tone, the cast and the production team. While it may not be the best movie in the X-Men series, it is a very enjoyable action movie.

2001 - Josie and the Pussycats

BingMag.com The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

  • Director: Deborah Kaplant, Harry Alfonte/li>
  • Cast: Rachel Lee Cook, Tara Reed, Rosario Dawson
  • Raton Tomitoz Score: 53 out of 100
  • IMDb Score for Movie: 5.5 out of 10

Movie of the Year: Ghost World

I just have to say that a movie that is superior to the spirit world is a very good movie. Josie and the Kind is one of those films that never received the attention and respect it deserved when it was released in the cinema, but in the years that followed, it became an influential work. It was a golden comedy ahead of its time with one of the best proprietary soundtracks of the time. The music, written by R&B legend Kenneth Edmunds (nicknamed Baby Face) and written by TV presenter Kei Hanley, is beautiful and undoubtedly one of the highlights of the film. What critics and audiences are realizing now is the high quality of the film. It is like a happy ode that depicts the power of several girls through music and friendship. Unfortunately, the project did not appeal to audiences at the time of its release. What do things really look like? These good friends take care of each other, support each other, and use their voices to reinforce their beliefs. Rachel Lee Cook, Rosario Dawson and Tara Reed play these three friends who support each other and have a great passion for progress. Then Parker Posey and Alan Cumming enter the story and, with their exceptional acting as bad guys in the film, try to exploit the talent of these three people and make a financial profit. All elements of this classic, directed by Harry Alfonte and Deborah Kaplan, (including the actors) are very efficient and harmonious. Josie and the Kinds is without a doubt the happiest movie on this list and deserves re-evaluation.

2002 - Spider-Man strong>

Second and third year films: American Glory, The Hulk

X2, sometimes referred to as X2: The X-Men Alliance, is a very important work at the time of its release. Was. The film was a highly anticipated sequel to The X-Men, and was also released after Sam Remy's Spider-Man was well received and audiences began to crave new comic book films. X2 is still new. This spectacular action has some amazing scenes, and the film effectively continues Wolverine's storyline in the first film. However, what really sets it apart is the fact that Brian Cox plays William Stryker, one of the franchise's best and most influential villains. X2 is a story full of hatred and anger towards the mutants and puts a fighting man in front of them who fights these creatures despite the fact that his own son is a mutant. The thematic similarities of this struggle with today's issues and movements are as clear as day, and in this sense, the film is something of a time machine. This film is a very entertaining work that well enhances the epic story of the first film and leads to a bitter and at the same time sweet ending that prepares the ground for the beginning of the Dark Phoenix epic. p>

2004 - Spider-Man 2

BingMag.com The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

  • Director: Sam Remy
  • Cast: Kristen Dunst, Toby Maguire, Stan Lee
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 93 out of 100
  • IMDb Score to Movie: 7. 3 out of 10

At the time, Spider-Man 2 was recognized as one of the best sequels ever made, but now with the formation of Marvel's cinematic world and the forward-looking approach, it seems that despite the quality Awesome Spider-Man 2, this movie is not the best sequel. Sam Remy's approach to Spider-Man was definitely beyond and better than later versions of the character. Spider-Man 2 is a work on the border of reality and fantasy. The film could have been made more complete by adding a bit of horror, especially to Dr. Octopus' sequences, but Sam Remy did not see fit. Apart from the cinematic perspective, the film is an emotional story about Peter Parker 's personality maturity and inability to balance his duties as Spider-Man and his human relationships as Peter Parker. Spider-Man 2 is amazing from the beginning to the end and in terms of narration.

2005 - Batman Begins/strong>

BingMag.com The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

  • Director: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Killin Murphy, Katie Holmes
  • Raton Tomito Score: Z: 84 out of 100
  • IMDb Score per Movie: 8.2 out of 10

Second and Third Movies of the Year: Constantine, History Violence

In general, Batman Begins is one of the most influential comics ever made. After the release of this work, the studios started making films as a remake of this film. The film's director, Christopher Nolan, approached the iconic figure with a logical explanation for every aspect of his existence, which led to a remarkable adaptation of the comic books. The film avoided the logic of works like X-Men or Spider-Man, and instead tried to create the impression that if Batman really existed, what the real world would look like. Christine Bell did well in her role as Batman. Every corner of Nolan's storyline (such as Jonathan Crane becoming a scarecrow character) matched its theme. In addition to making an entertaining and best-selling film, Nolan was able to create a prolific and meaningful story about people's inner fears, which was a new idea in a comic book.

2006 - Back Superman Returns

BingMag.com The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

  • Director:
  • Cast: Brandon Ruth, Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth
  • Raton Tomitoz Score: 75 of 100
  • IMDb Score to Movie: 6 out of 10

Superman Returns is a good thing. The film's director, Brian Singer (whose personal life issues and scandals have been exposed and whose charges cannot be mitigated), completed the film appropriately and made an admirable sequel with new actors for Richard Donner. Many audiences were unhappy with the lack of action and violence in the film, but in fact, the usual tone of Superman and his character is quite certain. He is an alien whose whole main characteristic is to protect others. He does not attack often. The fact that he has been trying to save people's lives throughout the film (especially in the aftermath of 9/11) is itself a new and inspiring subject. Brandon Ruth played the role of Superman in a great way, and maybe it would have been better if he had more opportunities to play this character in the next movies.

2007 - 30 Days of Night

BingMag.com The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

  • Director: David Slide
  • Cast: Melissa George, Josh Hartnett, Danny Houston
  • Raton Tomitosis Score: 51 out of 100
  • IMDb Score to Movie: 6.6 out of 10

30 Days Night is definitely one of the lesser-seen horror movies of the 21st century. Based on the original story of the Steve Niles comic book series of the same name, the film is about a collection of ancient vampires that invade a city in Alaska for a month (a polar night). Starring Josh Hartentt, it is superior to many similar films before it, such as Dracula 2000, The Cursed Queen and Van Helsing, and was praised by audiences and critics after its release. The film is an insane work that follows strange rules and is the scariest vampire work to be shown on a movie screen in recent years. Danny Houston and Ben Foster shine in their designs. The film's director, David Slade, and cinematographer Joe Wilms portrayed the film in a terrifying way, portraying vampires as a force of nature that is inevitable like the cold of winter. The film must be re-evaluated culturally, but 30 Days of Night is a horror and unexpected adaptation of a comic book.

2008 - The Dark Knight

BingMag.com The best comic book adaptations after Blade; From 1998 to 2020

  • Director: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christine Bell, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman
  • Score In Raton Tomitosis: 94 out of 100
  • IMDb rating to movie: 9 out of 10

Christopher Nolan begins with Batman, offers a new definition of Batman character and his world, but with the Dark Knight , Created a superhero and natural story that filmmakers are still trying to create similar to. Many consider it the best comic book of all time and the reason for this choice can be easily understood. Nolan is dissatisfied with the genre in which he works and expands it, turning the film into a crime drama while retaining the main elements. 20 . . . .
