POLL: What Is Your Favorite R Rated COMIC BOOK MOVIE?
With Dredd hitting US theaters this week, I thought we'd take a look back on some other successful - and not so successful - R rated comic book films from the past, and see which one comes out on top with you CBMers..
The comic book movie genre is not generally something that lends itself to too many R rated (usually the equivalent to as "18" in the UK) movies, since so many comic books are aimed at a general audience. Plus, even when a certain character, or characters, would benefit from a more adult orientated movie, studios are hesitant to go down that road because of the risk that comes along with dispensing with that all important kiddie dollar a CBM will usually rake in. But sometime it's just unavoidable, and thankfully over the years a few studios/directors have had the guts to go all out and produce some great rated R cinema. Of course, they haven't always been so great either! Below we have a list of most (I didn't include every one, if you were planning on voting for Barb Wire for example you're out of luck!) of the R rated CBMs we have had so far for you to vote on and choose your favorite..
Note: Dredd is not playing everywhere yet, so hasn't been included.
