I have to agree about The Rocketeer. That movie is a classic IMO.

For me it's The Shadow. I loved everything about it. The look, the feel, the cast, it was all great.

That would've been very nice, his voice alone would be worth hearing in the cowl!!!

The Phantom was good too, I saw that in the theater. It's a fun movie.

Dick Tracy I like but not much, and I HATE Madonna.
Dick Tracy was a great film at which I really don't think needs a remake quite yet.
The Phantom was a really enjoyable movie, but considering how the majority of the reviewers felt about it, I'd like to see another film hit theatres.
The Shadow this one I think is in desperate need of a remake, I personally liked the movie, Alec Baldwin was great as The Shadow, the look and feel of the character was spot on it's just that the film itself could've done a lot better then it did. I would personally like to see this come to the big-screen again real soon and with Sam Raimi as director, I think that's a perfect combination considering his style.

I love The Shadow and The Phantom. I haven't seen Dick Tracy in about 10 years, so I can't really remember it.

IMO I think the Rocketeer is probably the most under rated comic book movie and probably one of the best top 3 comic book movies ever made.

True fat did you know that Bill Campbell and Jennifer Connelly fell in love during the shooting of that movie and were engaged to be married for a couple of years before breaking it off.

Sam Raimi is why I hated what was done with the Shadow, Sam wanted to do it, the suits said "no" so he created Darkman out of spite. Sam could have done a FAR superior adaption of The Shadow then what were given in 94.

Thumbs up Re: The Shadow, the Phantom or Dick Tracy?

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


put me down for the Rocketeer. it has great everything, casting, the characters looked great, Jennifer Connelly , and great music by James Horner

Dick Tracy was before Sin City the first live action movie that felt like a comic book. I have the making off book did you know that the ONLY colors used in that movie were the ones fell under the primary colors used in painting? notice there are no browns, or any dull colors at all. and you cannot go wrong with the great Elfman for his score (i have the cd). and i agree the make up fx still look good 18 years later .

Yep. Darkman was a better Shadow movie than The Shadow.

I didn't particularly enjoy "Dick Tracy", but that was probably caused by the casting of first Beatty and then Madonna. "The Shadow" I enjoyed, I thought the casting in it was very good (John Lone made such an evil Shiwan Khan !) "The Phantom" was fun too, but Billy Zane came across as a bit bland, particularly when compared to the delightfully manic performance of Treat Williams as Xander Drax ! I like "The Rocketeer" as well and have copies of the last three films that I mentioned.

I love Dick Tracy as a kid. Still, it's not a bad movie per say. And I love the Danny Elfman theme.

The Shadow I liked, and I liked the set designs moreso than the story itself.

Dick Tracy is actually the only film, other than A League of Their Own, that I like Madonna in.
It actually had a pretty big all star cast looking back.
The Phantom was fun, but it was nothing compared to Rocketeer, The Shadow, and Dick Tracy. Rocketeer trumps them all though.

You liked "The Shadow?" God, that is probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen next to "Johnny Menomhic."

"The Phantom" and "Dick Tracy" though are awesome. "Phantom" is so underrated but Billy Zane was great in it and it got us to meet Catherine Zeta-Jones whom I still believe just from her character in that would make a good Talia in a Batman film. And "Tracy" the colors, the designs, the cast, etc. is so dead-on with the comic-book.

I thought Dick Tracy is a cool fun movie.

Then The Phantom, mainly because I thought Zane was good in the role.

And lastly the Shadow, mainly because "The Shadow" himself didn't have much screen time, and the final battle was lousy.

The Shadow was an asskickin Comic adaptation-so was Tracy, tracy, tracy. I hadn't even seen a Warren Beaty film til I saw that.

The Phantom was the weak link, w/ the Rocketeer just above it.

No redo's of these films



Shadow>>Dick Tracy>>>>>>>Rocketeer>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>Billy Zane>>>>The Phantom
