Wait, That Was Based on a Comic Book?

Travis McClain

Bats: R, Throws: R. How Acquired: Traded for a player to be named later. I hold a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Louisville, earned in history. I have lived with Crohn's disease since 2005, and chronic depression since my youth. I bring into each film that I view a world view shaped by those and other parts of my background. I try to be mindful of the socio-political themes and implications of movies, intended or otherwise, and that surely shows in my blog pieces. I also love doughnuts.

    The only three of these I’ve seen are A History of Violence, Road to Perdition and 300. The best thing I can say about any of them was that 300 was, indeed, very visually unique. If it didn’t throw so many buckets of blood at the screen, I would probably like it a lot more.

    Meanwhile, I can appreciate the performances in AHOV, but the movie just did nothing for me, and I guess Road to Perdition is only memorable to me because it’s one of only three movies I’ve seen with the name “Paul Newman” attached. It’s the worst of those three.

    I knew all of these were based off comics with the exception of Howard the Duck. Speaking of which, shouldn’t we all have known before ‘Phantom Menace’ that he was nuts?
