When cartoons of films go BRILLIANTLY

Published: 5th Mar, 2009


Practically every film you’ve ever seen has started off as a cartoon – X Men, Batman, Milk, The English Patient, Iron Man, Watchmen, A Room With a View – so how refreshing it is when it goes the other way, and great movies are turned into animated cartoons. The above was flagged up by dear friend of the site, known intriguingly as Woody. He had this to say…

“This is Rambo, the disturbed Vietnam vet who comes back to America and lives like a tramp. And kills innocent policemen. FYI Rambo dies in the book, shot in the head with a shotgun, but that didn’t make it into the cartoon either.”

Nice spot, Woody!

Can you think of another great movie-turned-cartoon? Let us know with a comment…
