Writer's Block: Live action hero

Which is your favorite or least favorite comic book-turned-movie?

I think my least favourite would probably be the Tintin live action movies that were made in the '60s (I think), purely because I was expecting them to be animated and my tiny little infant brain (well, I would have been about five?) couldn't quite compute them being live action. I'd actually be quite interested to see them again nowadays, to see what they're like. I suspect I'd quite like them.

ETA: Ah, according to this review, Tintin and the Golden Fleece was shown once on UK TV, when I was eight, and Tintin and the Blue Oranges not at all. And both films are now out on DVD in the UK, thanks to the BFI. Yay!

Favourite, although admittedly I've not read the graphic novel, is probably Kick-Ass, just because it lives up to the name. I've normally got a pretty low tolerance threshold for gore, but this exceeds it but manages to appeal anyway, probably because it's so ludicrous fantastic. A darned fine piece of film making. Reminds me, must see X-Men: First Class...
