The movie made me not want to read the comic. It removed/destroyed any interest I had in the source material. While I had heard of the comic, and that it was good, I'd never read it and was mildly curious. My curiousity is dead and buried, with a parking lot and a walmat built above it. Anything that does that much damage cannot be good for the reputation of the source. By contrast, The Dresden Files TV show was almost nothing like the books it was based on, but still mildly entertaining, and got me interested in the books. While not accurate in most respects, it still did justice to the material. The Seeker: The Dark is Rising was a horrible, horrible movie, but I am mildly curious about the books given the extreme reaction of the fan base. Probablly didn't do justice to the books, beyond raising awareness of them. Warlock, the movie staring Julian Sands, was actually far better than the book (the author's more juvenile and purient fantasies were removed. It more than did justice to the source material. That is the standard by which I judge.
