How many of the last 50 "comic book / graphic novel" adaptations have you seen?

So, I thought about this a bit yesterday, and dug up a list on Box Office Mojo.
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/genres/...er=DESC&p=.htm
I won't vouch for its accuracy, but it seems good enough for me.

Note that this is prior to the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, which is why it isn't on the list.

So, of the last 50 titles, how many have you watched?

Here they are:
Spoiler:


I've seen a whopping 10.
EDIT: Ah shit. It's actually 11 for me. Screwed up answering my own poll. Nice job.

2 Guns was based on a graphic novel? That is the movie with Mark Wahlberg/Denzel?

If you expand the list to 100 the number changes from 2 to 10.

I got 41. It's like I was telling my gf the other day as we were watching Red 2, she would be surprised just how many movies are based on comics.

Expanding it to 100, I've seen about 40 (I do not trust my ability to count double-digits now)

Re: How many of the last 50 "comic book / graphic novel" adaptations have you seen?

These are the ones I have seen:

1. Iron Man
2. Incredible Hulk
3. Dark Knight
4. Punisher War Zone
5. Watchmen
6. X-Men Origins Wolverine
7. Iron Man 2
8. Jonah Hex
9. Thor
10. X-Men First Class
11. Green Lantern
12. Cap America First Avenger
13. Ghost Rider
14. Avengers
15. Men in Black 3
16. Amazing Spider-Man
17. Dark Knight Rises
18. Iron Man 3
19. Man of Steel
20. Wolverine
21. Thor Dark World
22. 300 2

I never go to theaters, so I will see the ones below once they are released on DVD/BD.

23. Cap America Winter Soldier
24. Amazing Spider-Man 2
25. X-Men Days of Future Past

So I guess that means I have seen/will see exactly half of them.

I expect to own all 50 eventually, but somehow I've only seen 16 so far.

I didn't realize We Are The Best! was a comic, and shouldn't Blue is the Warmest Color be on there?
