Nukid101's Top 30 Comic Book Films: 5 - 1
Hey everyone. Well here we are, the top 5! What are my personal top 5 comic book films? Let’s find out!
Nukid101’s Top 30 Comic Book Films: 5 – 1
5) Watchmen (2009)
Boy do I like the controversial ones, huh?
For many people the film adaptation of Watchmen is a travesty of a film that had the audacity to change things from the graphic novel with a certain big change to the ending. More than once I’ve even seen it on lists of ‘worst comic book films’.
I however think it’s a masterpiece, and a damn near perfect adaptation of the infamous graphic novel.
If I haven’t made it clear already, I know that adaptations are not considered good solely by how accurate they are to the source material. Films and comics are very different beasts, and the best comic book films have understood how to balance the changes films need whilst also sticking true to the comics. Watchmen is one such film; a film that truly brings the comic b

10) The Dark Knight (2008)
I doubt anybody is surprised to see The Dark Knight on this list, but what I daresay some of you are surprised that it did not even reach my personal top five. Heck, I’m sure some of you half expected it to be number 1.
The answer to that is that for all the many great things about this film, there are two things holding it back for me. Two things I can’t really let go of, despite my love for the film. My biggest problem with the film – and to a greater extent The Dark Knight Rises - is that it is pretty pro-neoconservative.
Don’t get me wrong; I don’t begrudge the film for having a political stance (lord knows more films and shows need to have the balls to do so), but I am free to criticise the stance said film takes, and I take serious issue with some of the opinions this fil
Everything Wrong With Thunderbirds-Opening narrative to explain the basis of the film’s source material cliché.
-The Thunderbirds are only called by their proper name International Rescue once in the film.
-The animated opening sequence is more kickass than the rest of the film.
-The film is meant to be a very loose prequel to the Thunderbirds series, but it decides to make Alan a stupid whiny and brainless doe-eyed moron rather than being a spirited, adventurous ex-motor racing champion.
-Caught daydreaming in class cliché.
-The drawing Alan did on Thunderbird #1 seems to be a bit off from the same rocket ship he spends most of time hanging around with.
-Sadistic teacher cliché.
-Alan seems to keep forgetting the number one rule of being part of International Rescue is that it is meant to be top secret, and yet keeps talking about it in public.
-Just because he is Brains’ son does not mean Fermat has to have the same characteristics.
-Also, what kind of name is “Fermat” for a chi

The man walked out with a smug look.
As Steel walked by, he passed a black katana and a jar. Two spirits emerged—a samurai warrior and a woman clad in white.

Steel waved as he passed an anthropomorphic skunk and smacked the head of an anthro tiger wearing a Hawaiian shirt. The tiger wheeled around, looking irritated.

All people have a part they're hiding in themselves, right?
Steel yelped as a girl around his age with long, black hair and lavender eyes quickly hugged him.

The Chaos Critic Rants about Fairly Odd ParentsOH man I have a lot to say here . . . this is going to take a long time, but at least I remember and know enough of this show to get things I find problematic with this show across. I also admit this review may get . . . picky, but hey, this show's gotten worse in years. I might do a top favorite of my episodes, but that's for another time. This is separate from my Spongebob reviews because I feel I'll get them mixed up if I do them together. I might just start calling them Chaotic Reviews, but I think someone else has that title. BUT, whatever . . . Butch Hartman and Nick own Fairly Odd Parents and I won't waste my breath on that. Please enjoy this riff!
What can I truly say about this show?
It had charm, class, and funny moments. It introduced the running gag to me, while introducing me to the concepts of rules, magic and conscience.
This show ruled.
The Fairly Odd Parents was originally a few shorts on a show calle
My Godzilla (2014) Review
Well guys without any delay let's get into it.
In 1954, the United States Armed Forces are assembled to witness a secret nuclear test. A hydrogen bomb, decorated with a monster insignia, is detonated when a giant creature emerges from the ocean. In 1999, Project Monarch scientists Ishiro Serizawa and Vivienne Graham investigate a colossal skeleton in a collapsed mine in the Philippines. But what they found were two crystals, that in the end seem to have taken the form of monsters. Those monsters happen to be the MUTOs. Those MUTOS, attack the factory, which ends with the death of Elle Brody. 15 years later, and as the MUTOs make things a lot worst for the humans, it's the moment where the gigantic and mysterious monster, known to the world as Godzilla shows up to destroy them.
While Godzilla doesn't have much screentime, his appearance are easily the most momentous parts of the movie so far. The desing and his growls a
Riffing the Reef with 'Truth or Square'Eleven is like seven, but with four tacked on. This special is like crap, but . . . well, you get the picture. Stephen Hillenburg owns Spongebob and I just critique it. Please enjoy.
The tenth anniversary of Spongebob.
Oh man, I remember when I first saw the show in 1999 . . . it was funny, glorious, and it had some of the best animation on TV back then.
. . .
Well, if you've read my other reviews, you know how I feel about it now. So, I'm not gonna hold back here.
When the special for the 10th anniversary of Spongebob was announced, I was hyped up as heck to see it. I had grown up on Spongebob, and had stopped watching some of the newer episodes because they freaked me out. Nick overhyped the special with Burger King toys, special screenings, and a marathon dedicated to the BEST Spongebob episodes ever.
That was when I had my first win of "Band

The TrundlerThe waste land behind the fire station is always silent. No birds sing there, and even the wild rabbits and feral cats avoid it. Weedy wildflowers nod their seasonal heads in the breeze. Lying fallow in the midst of housing developments, shopping malls, the new movie theater — the vacant lot stands out like a knife wound on a woman’s placid face, shocking, brazen, ugly.
It is always empty. Except for one thing: a ragged heap of old trash, all nasty black tar paper and vicious snarls of rusted wire, car parts and broken glass and other junkyard jetsam. The embodiment of injury waiting to happen, an invitation to a tetanus shot... the city never hauled it away. No one ever wants anywhere near it; it radiates an eerie sense of calculating watchfulness.
And at night, it wanders.
When darkness falls, and the last cars heading into the hives of tract housing stop illuminating the asphalt with moving-picture shadows, it… unfolds. Bitter, broken tangles, grotesquely mov
Inspector Wolf The old lady was dead. I could smell it before I even got into the house. The whole place reeked of adrenaline, sweat, fear, copper and steel. He’d dropped her right in her living room. Chopped and chopped until she stopped moving. But I could tell I was getting close. This had been done in a hurry, and the killer didn’t have the time to clean up after himself like he usually did.
Across the room, the phone rang. The shrill sound set my teeth to grinding, but I ignored it. Instead I followed the killer’s bloody footprints into the back bedroom. He’d climbed out the window. If I hurried, I could catch up to him and end this disgusting spree he was on.
Then the answering machine kicked in. “Hi, Gramma! It’s Red. Sorry I’m running late. I kind of lost track of time. But don’t worry. I packed the picnic and I’m heading out the door right now. Love you.”
She’d been expec
