Don't forget League of Extraordinary Gentlemen! The movie so bad, that Sean Connery retired. And he was in Highlander 2

Added!

Hey! I liked LXG! It's certainly not the graphic novel but as its own entity, it's a nice popcorn film!

AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!

I would tend to agree. I wouldn't call it a great movie, but it was a fun ride. But "not the graphic novel" in the same way that most films based on true stories aren't the true story.

Adding Tom Sawyer to LXG damaged it. The other characters had aged appropriately for the turn of the last century. Tom should have been at least 60 years old.

DCEU: Seen all of them to date except Birds of Prey, which is too far removed from the real Birds of Prey

Batman: Have seen all of them to date except (1) the 1949 serial. Currently watching the 1943 serial on TCM (you have the serials both listed twice) and (2) the Halle Berry Catwoman movie. I like the actress but it seemed so derivative of Batman Returns. Catwoman without Batman? That’s like Venom and Morbius without Spider-Man.

Well I thought the LXG movie sucked, and I didn't think the comic book was that great either.

If you'll forgive me, in the first set you've listed the Batman serials twice (nos 3, 8, 12, 13).

Holy crap, you're right! Fixed!
