FILMS FROM COMICS - A History of Violence

 The Obscure Comic Book Film Source Project.


A multi-blog look at lists of "Movies You Didn't Know Were Based On Comics" to see how true they really are.

A History of Violence is the story of Tom Stall, a small-town soda shop owner who becomes a local hero when he stops a violent attack by two men on his shop and repercussions.  Loosely based on the graphic novel by John Wagner & Vince Locke.

COMPETING FILM SHOWDOWN - Poll Round #4

Looking at film and television. Sometimes two very similar films come out close together, let's see which one is better...

Here's a list of 10 film duos I intend looking at.  I'm starting off with films released in the same year calender year, but will expand out to films in consecutive years as time goes on.  I'm also going to avoid deliberate rip-offs by companies such as Asylum who make "Mockbusters" of major films to trick audiences into see their film instead of the real thing.
