Ultimate Geek Fu


Okay, show of hands here, and let's be honest. Who's planning to go see X-Men Origins: Wolverine this weekend?

And by the way, how are you doing with the subject in general? Is it just me, or is anyone else here starting to get just a teensy bit overloaded on big-budget action movies adapted from Marvel comic books? I mean, X-Men, Spider-Man, More X-Men, More Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, The Fantastic 4, Even More X-Men, Yet More Spider-Man, The Fantastic 4.1, The Incredible Hulk Returns Again, Iron-Man — okay, so I actually liked the first Punisher movie — I mean the first new Punisher movie, not the first-first Punisher, that steaming heap from twenty years ago that starred Dolph Lundgren — but honestly, what's next? Captain America, The Movie?

I shouldn't say that. It's probably already in pre-production.

So that's the topic for today. Movies Made From Marvel Comic Books: Good, Bad, Ugly, or Enough Already? What's the best one they've made, and which one in a just universe would have gotten everyone involved with it flogged in the public square?

Let the arguments begin.

ULTIMAGE GEEK FU runs every Wednesday. Have a question that's just bugging the heck out of you about Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, Battlestar Gallactica, Farscape, Firefly, Fringe, Heroes, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Smallville, The X-Files, X-Men, The Man From Atlantis, or pretty much any other SF-flavored media property? Send it to slushpile@thefridaychallenge.com with the subject line, "Geek Fu," and we'll put it in the queue.
