Care to Join the League?

I've just remembered to post a discussion here in myLot about the movie: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Background first, the movie was released was released in 2003. It was, I repeat to those who expect that the movie will follow the comics, BASED or an ADAPTATION of Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comic series. It starred Hollywood's first James Bond actor (theatrical release wise) Sean Connery as the cunning Allan Quatermain, A Walk to Remember star Shane West as Tom Sawyer, and Queen of the Damned's Lestat Stuart Townsend as Dorian Gray. I repeat, the movie was an adaptation of the comics but I haven't read it though. It was my sister who asked me to join her watch the film. Of course, being a sci-fi fantasy movie lover that I am, I watched it with her. I really liked the story. It has depth. Depth is actually what I'm looking for in every film. Ok so, I found it very cool that fictional characters from every classic novel appeared together in a single work. Included in the movie were characters like Allan Quatermain from Haggard's King Solomon's Mines (I wasn't able to read this though), Captain Nemo from Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, of course Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dorian Gray, The Invisible Man, and more. The effects were also awesome and believable. What I didn't like though was the ending. I thought Quatermain was so cool. I didn't like it when he died. .

I love science fiction, horror and action movies too. I haven't watched these movies yet, I would look forward to watch in my day-off but I have to research on these then download and I'm thinking it might be available on since it's quite hard for me to find these in movie stores and mostly new movies are only available in there... you would be lucky if you find old ones. Some of James Bond were so famous, I've watched many of his movies when still I was a kid... I really enjoyed myself watching.
