Brady Bunch movie was pretty fun.

Rocky and Bullwinkle was atrocious. I just heard June Forey died. Hope she never watched it.

Re: Best or Favorite TV to Film Adapations

I'm honestly not sure which I'm going to vote for, but leaning toward The Fugitive as it's not only my favorite but perhaps the best adaptation. But Mabuse, Brady Bunch Movie was great. And 21 Jump Street was awesome as well. Really should've opted for the multiple choice option.

Re: Best or Favorite TV to Film Adapations

The Brady Bunch Movie was pure shit. Now A Very Brady Sequel? That shit is damn funny!

I guess I'd vote for The Fugitive unless we're also talking sequels. If we can include sequels I'd vote for the Mission: Impossible movies. From M:I III and on they're great!

Probably The Fugitive, one of my favorite thrillers of all time.

The Fugitive, also i think the only movie of this category to be nominated for Best Picture.

Re: Best or Favorite TV to Film Adapations

I can never forgive The Fugitive for using the "Balbo station" El stop as a major plot point. (There is no Balbo street El stop in Chicago, and was living a block off Balbo at the time it came out.) As a lifelong Trekkie, I have to choose TMP and its successors.

I actually really liked the Addams Family movies and of course The Naked Gun.

Re: Best or Favorite TV to Film Adapations

-The Hunt for Red October and The Fugitive first comes to mind. They are smart, action thrillers unlike today where they seem to dumb them down for the audience and rely more on action sets.

Not sure where it ranks for me, but I've really grown to love Mann's Miami Vice.

I kinda thought that's what happened but you were very correct with The Fugitive.

Re: Best or Favorite TV to Film Adapations

Of the ones you listed, The Fugitive, easily. Although I love The Naked Gun movies.

Kind of surprised you listed the first Star Trek movie or Wrath of Khan though, to be honest.
