Steel doesn't count since they flushed everything Superman from it.

It's more tolerable watching it in Spanish for those that can speak it because Arnold's puns cannot be directly translated thereby sparing us of facepalms.

But he's still John Henry in the movie, even if it's just called Steel in name only I still consider it a CBM.

Thanks, I feel it's kinda unfair tho to hate on it because it's the origin again and I thought there was lots of new elements. Did people not realise it was the origin again? I hate IM3 but it's not even remotely because it has similaritys to The Incredibles. I thought it had as much heart as the rami films. Don't get why it's blamed for similaritys when BB and MOS get away with it.

I don't think anyone's hating on The Amazing Spider-Man because it's an origin story (nor do I think anyone watched it and 'didn't realize' it was an origin story...???). Some people just genuinely don't like it...is that really that difficult to comprehend? I mean surely there's movies you don't like that plenty of other people do.

Could be, I don't visit the Spider-Man boards. But in the sections I do read, the majority of complaints are more to do with Peter Parker's characterization, among other issues. I agree that the film being an origin story doesn't in and of itself make it a bad film. Heck, I wouldn't even go so far as to call it a "bad" film. I still won't be watching it again or bothering with the sequel though.

Let me deal with that last statement. I was very critical of MoS because it's a retread of Superman 1 and 2, even though it's supposed to be a new story.

BB, on the other hand, is nothing like Burton's Batman. The only similarity is in showing Bruce's parent's getting shot, and barely at that.

TASM had all the promise of showing us "the secret origin of Spider-man" having something to do with his parents. In the end, he gets bit by a spider, Uncle Ben dies, so-on, so-forth.

Ah, how could I forget the Fantastic Four films? They were awful, though at least Chris Evans played a good Johnny Storm. He deserved better and I'm glad to see that he got better (Captain America).

Speaking of which, the 1990 Captain America movie was complete garbage.

I've never seen the Corman F4 but I'd like to, just to see if it was somehow more enjoyable than the more recent bad F4 movies. The more I think about it, F4 might be one of those properties than movie studios should just give up on. Some things ARE better left to the comics.

Others...

Punisher: War Zone
The Punisher (Lundgren)
The Punishert (Jane)

I still fail to understand how they managed to screw up The Punisher THREE times on film. That character, you would think, has to be one of the easiest ones to adapt. He's just a guy whose family is murdered and he's taking revenge on the criminal underworld. He doesn't even wear a mask or much of a costume. Charles Bronson made that movie about 10 times in the 70s and 80s. I don't know why they keep screwing the Punisher up.

Amen.

The most successful comic book adaptions to films are the ones that keep the basics of the character(s) in tact. These core elements are the things that made those characters successful in the first place, it really should not be a difficult thing to grasp. But no, come time to make a movie some jerk decides they can improve on it or put their own spin on it, add this, take away that, and lo and behold it stinks. I do wonder if the people who make these decisions act surprised, or just shrug and move on.

I scratch my head on Punisher sometimes too, how hard can it be to adapt the character. But maybe in a way the audience too has just gotten tired of all the copycat revenge vigilante themed movies ever since.

I'd personally take it well over any of the Raimi movies, and that's not to say I hated all of them(but none of them are much in the way of being my cup of tea as I find Raimi's sensibilities in and of themselves annoying).

Oh I have fond memories of myself and my friends watching and lampooning the 90's Albert Pyun Captain America film! Actually to veer off topic Pyun can slap together a good action scene or two but oh my the acting...there's a series of terminator rip off movies he made, two I have somewhere that starred a pretty masculine looking female bodybuilder that are guilty pleasures of mine he'd directed.
