Graphic novels are like comic books. Graphic movies look like comic books – they are real actors in black and white with digitally created backgrounds usually with a little color added. 300, the graphic movie about a Grecian king who is greatly outnumbered by the Persians, is the number one best seller on Amazon and it just released on DVD the day before yesterday. (And we owned our copy the day before yesterday.)
Personally, I like any movie that’s well done with a good story line. However, the "graphic" effect doesn’t do anything for me. The movie Sin City wasn’t bad because it looked like a comic but it wasn’t any better because it looked like a comic.
(I haven’t watched 300 yet but Frank says it’s good – he watched it after I went to bed and it was good enough to keep him up!)
