    Is this a trick question?

    "American Splendor".
    "Unbreakable" (even though, it's not based on one)
    "Renegade/Blueberry"
    The Punisher films
    "Red"
    "Kick-Ass"

    I'm glad Rene C and The White Album noted the others. Also, being one of the de facto comic book historians here, I think the OP should go to this website on why comic books have gotten the bad rap of being for kids in the United States (like jazz, the medium has grown overseas).

    Not just for kids, and with the exception of Blade II and 300, I watch them all repeatedly. That's just off the top of my head.

    But I'm willing to bet that the ones you've watched time and time again over the past, say, dozen years, can be counted on one hand -- if that.

    No.

    Piss-poor storytelling disappoints me, regardless of the genre, target audience, year and country of production, etc.

    If you can't tell a competent story, you have no business making films for anybody.

    Does anyone find themselves more and more disappointed by these films as the get older, forgetting that perhaps these films weren't designed to entertain them as much as teens in the first place?
