Very early. In fact too early to be posting this, probably, but interesting none the less

I wasn't as fond of the second one as the first, the plot stayed good, but the crazy poetic style of writing kinda melted away. I loved the first one to death though.

The only way they could make a movie with the same vibe would be a heavily narrated movie, something like The Watchmen maybe.
I deleted some of your posts because they were derailing the topic and not focusing on the issues asked, and instead going after the authors or their material. That's why. ~ BM

They are well worth it. Some are better than others, but they are all worth the price of admission. There's a reason we still talk about them 20 years later. :)

I don't even have them in the pile yet. Someday though.
