Since someone below wanted it, I went and fetched it. Here's his EW list. But Kev, if you revised it, which slot would X-Men fit into? And where's The Crow, man?


The Rocketeer (1991) - This is probably the closest translation to screen that comics have ever had, dumbing nothing down for the mainstream.

Batman (1989) - Not the best representation of the Dark Knight (Batman would never fire missles at anyone) but the brooding tone was right.

Superman II (1980) - Superman facing off against not just Lex Luther but also three Kryptonian convicts of equal strength made this the best of the bunch. And he didn't even turn back time by making the earth rotate in the opposite direction.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) - Joke if you must, but the movie was really close to the comic.

Conan the Barbarian (1982) - Granted, he was a pulp hero before he was a comic-book character. But this flick was a pretty strong adaption of the comic, as well as a showcase for one of Arnold's best performances. Ever.
