No, I've seen 34 of the last 50 and there are indeed some terrible movies on that list, and a few I've never even heard of...What the hell are We Are The Best!, 13 Sins, and Billy and Buddy?!

My friend, who is also an artist, was writing scripts for quite a while and beating his head against the wall trying to get agencies interested in looking at them. I keep telling him to do up a comic with them, even if it's just a quick , crude one. But he keeps blowing that idea off.
He's a pretty phenomenal artist too. If he were actually interested in developing them, he would definitely get some attention.

That reminds me I never finished Bendis' graphic novel on his adventures in dealing with studios optioning his material.

28, with a few more waiting in my Netflix queue.

Includes two of my favorite movies, The Dark Knight and The Avengers.

And two of the absolute worst movies I've seen in the last few years, Dylan Dog and Man of Steel.

Didn't realize "2 Guns" and "Oblivion" were based on comic book/graphic novel material.

Saw "2 Guns" yesterday and I love me some Paula Patton
