One of the more fascinating things I’ve had the privilege to study in my school days was human psychology. For a time, I coached high school sports, and in that time I taught a class on sport psychology. I find the work that B.F. Skinner did on positive and negative reinforcement to be particularly interesting, and yes, it may seem like common sense today. Nevertheless, I love how we can use positive energy to change human behavior. It can be something as simple as praising a job well done or giving a tiny token of appreciation. Positive reinforcement is far more effective at creating behavioral change than punishing negative behavior.

The past couple of decades have seen a lot of movies based off comic books coming about, so much so that Marvel has even created its own division and an interconnecting in-continuity universe for such properties (well, some of them). There have even been some made-for-TV movies and direct-to-video films (such as the DC original animated features), so many that we’ve actually lost count. Below are the 8 (4 each) films that we believe best represent movies (based on comic books) that one should see.

The FFOW! series takes a look at that vast library created by the proud and the passionate: fan films. Whether the budget and talent is astronomical or amateur, FFOW! celebrates the filmmakers whose love of comics, books, movies, video games, and TV shows inspires them to join the great conversation with their own homemade masterpieces.
Fantastic fan films premiered this summer. By now, most everyone has hopefully seen Bryan Nest’s Batman: Puppet Master. I made it this week’s FFOW!, because I finally realized why this Batman fan film made such an impact on this Batman film fan.
