    I'd have to say my favorite comic book to movie adaptation would be Batman Begins. It had a very good balance of action, drama, and story. It was a dark portrayal...but not as dark as Tim Burton's films. It doesn't hurt to have Christian Bale, Katie Holmes, Michael Caine, Llam Neeson, and Morgan Freeman as your cast. :D

    My second pick would go to Spider-Man and third would be X-Men 2.

    Wha's your favorites?

    Mine are very similar to yours - I'd probably put the two Spidey movies at the top (I'd find it hard to choose between the two) and then Batman Begins, which is easily the best non-animated Batman movie I've ever seen, not just for the great cast but also for the outstanding character development given to Bruce Wayne! :)

    If animated movies would also qualify, I'd also give a massive shout-out to Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, which is a truly *gorgeous* piece of work, a beautiful story with great character development. :)

    Take care... :)

    Well, i've never been a big X-Men fan myself, but i have to say that one and two were probably the best comic to movie adaptions i have seen.....so far. Oh, and i have to give nods to TMNT as well. The first one will always be a classic in my book.

    The original TMNT and Batman Begins are my picks here. Spidey was close, but changing the design of GG takes something away. :)

    Yeah I really would have loved the GG if they had given him a different design. He looks so un-goblin like. ;)

    I think Dare Devil, X-Men and Batman (both Burton's and Batman Begins) are really good :)
