Dinner last night [r] [c] [w]

Went out to dinner last night with fairymelusine. We went to wd~50 which was really, really good and a lot of fun (the food is very creative and a bit weird - and all good).

I posted a write-up in nyc_cuisine.

I also finished the final revisions on my business case and submitted it to the CEO. Woo! That was a huge load off my shoulders. At this point I have no major paperwork left to do. I still have plenty of work, but nothing that requires focusing and sitting and reading/writing for hours on end like a business case or quarterly plan or contract. Woohoo!

Best Comic Book Adaptation Movies Ever [t]

Ok, I've been thinking about this. And here's my top 5 list of all time. What's on yours?

1.) Hellboy
1.) Ghost World
(It was a tie - both movies are excellent but so completely different that ranking one above the other seemed to do them an injustice. I actually preferred the Ghost World movie to the comic book.)
3.) X-Men 2 (I think I liked this one better than X-Men 1. And since this is on here I'm leaving that one off the list.)
4.) Spider-Man (This almost fell down further due to Toby Maguire being in the movie, but I still enjoyed it despite him.)
5.) American Splendor (see update note below)

And if I had to extend it to a top-10...

6.) Road to Perdition
7.) The Crow (I loved this movie when it first came out. I still enjoy it, but I don't love it as much.)
8.) Batman (the first one - Tim Burton)
9.) Superman (also the first one)
10.) Hulk (hey, I liked it, shut up)

(11.) Men in Black)

Update: I totally forgot about American Splendor! Thanks anonymous poster! I've added that in at #5. (I enjoyed it, but to be honest, I didn't enjoy it as much as I was hoping. I think #5 works, but I'm not sure. #3/4/5 are all a toss-up for me, honestly.)
