Your 2016 Guide to Films Based on Comics and Novels

Comics were once a niche subculture but with a huge following. From the early superhero films to the new ones such as Marvels’ The Avengers (2012), DC Comic’s Man of Steel (2013), and many more, we witnessed how this subculture dominated mainstream. But it doesn’t end there. Novels, also played a huge part in the film industry. Successful films such as Die Hard, Rambo: Frist Blood, as well as Disney’s original Parent Trap were all based on novels. Die Hard is from Roderick Thorp’s Nothing Lasts Forever, Rambo: Frist Blood is from David Morrell’s First Blood, and Parent Trap is from the German novel Lottie and Lisa (Das doppelte Lottchen) by Erich Kästne.

Top 10 Movies to Watch this 2016

Sometimes we change our mind or the film is not available for viewing in our country. These are acceptable because we will be able to see them anyway in a few months to a year or so on TV. Plus, with the emergence of Netflix, iflix, and HOOQ we can easily watch them on our smartphones and computers once it becomes available. However, nothing beats the feeling of watching a film on cinemas during the “hype”. That is why I am still keeping a list of movies I will (try to) watch in theatres this year.
