Dragonball: Evolution is probably the only film that was able to leave me with a disappointed feeling like a year before it actually came out. I am a huge fan of the series, and when I got my first glimpse at what the movie would be, I put my head through a wall and bawed.
Wow, so like, you listed multiple films that I liked a bunch.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Star Wars Episodes 1-3.
Of those movies listed, Watchmen (I read the comic books before I watched the film...yes, I read them as comic books, as they were originally released), Matrix Sequels, and the Star Wars Prequels are on my best of all time list.
Aha. That's where we disagree. I believe it to be above average for a comic and the film is better than the comic.
I was what....8 or 9 when I read the comics? I enjoyed them. But not very much more than other comics I was reading at the time. I did realize that the quality of the stories were superior than that other comics I read, but they didn't strike my like a sledge hammer, or anything. This is why I don't have the comics on the pedestal that others put it on. I do see it as awesome, but not super awesome, if that makes sense.
If I had my choice, I'd watch the movie 3 times over and read the comics once.
I probably should give the comic another read, possibly even buy it to show my support. I should definitely buy the special edition film on blu ray, as well.
You read Watchmen ONCE, at nine years old, and you're judging it based on that experience?
Not only does Watchmen deserve and NEED multiple readings, but as smart as you think you are now, don't sit there with a straight face and tell me you "got" everything out of Watchmen at that age and at first reading. If you do, you're a flat out liar. People have used Watchmen in university lectures, you didn't get it at age 9. There are words in that book that most kids can't pronounce at age nine.
If you read it now and still don't feel it, fine, but man...don't sit there and judge one of the most densely packed and multi-layered pieces of comic literature and literature in general based on your nine year old self's opinion of it.
That's just...dude. I know we play around, but in all seriousness you're a smart dude when you stop being silly. So I expected way more artistic appreciation from you than this.
What you just did is the same, essentially, as if some dude saw The Matrix as nothing more than an awesome fighting movie with flashy effects cos he saw it when it was nine.
The MK sequel
The Phantom Menace
Attack of the Clones
King Kong (Remake)
Escape from LA
All the Matrix movies
The Shatner/Nimoy Star Trek movies, except for Khan.
All the ways you wish you could be, that's me. I look like you wanna look, I **** like you wanna ****, I am smart, capable, and most importantly, I am free in all the ways that you are not.
You just showed your ignorance by trying shove your lame ass hoity toity opinion down my throat. You've proven over and over again that you taste in film is shit. GTFO outta here with that shit.
Edit - At nine years old, I could explain, with great detail, Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity. Something you probably couldn't even do now. I read mostly adult books when I was a kid. Now crawl out of my ass.

It's pretty obvious that he baited me, and reported me to a mod when I responded exactly as you planned me to. I don't understand why he isn't banned yet.
You are now on ignore.
I never do this and I've never done it. But, you do not deserve being responded to, ever again. You will not get me banned. You should tread lightly on the boards...but, you already have been. I am sooooo looking forward to the day that you are perma banned.

I liked the Simpson's movie. Hmm, disappointing movies, I suppose Return of the Sith ultimately disappointed me, I just got very psyched about it. Indiana Jones I wasn't as hyped but it was incredibly bad so that's disappointing, too.
