Comic Books As Live Action Movies

Do you guys think the big screen should scrap adapting the comics or do you think that live movies can stay true to the source material?

I ask this as I'm watching Trans Formers from the big screen on DVD. I have had this issue with Spider Man as well lately.

Generally, I don't see the problem. While it's certainly true that most live-action adaptations of comic-sourced material make changes to suit their medium, I don't find that most deviations are so off-putting to make it such that I think they shouldn't have even made the attempt.

Bay's Transformers movies have been very much the exception. I have nothing good to say about those, apart from appreciating the added visibility they gave to the rest of the franchise.

(Someday, I'll get around to watching the Bay-less Bumblebee movie. I'm told that one's okay, but I was so put off by its predecessors that I've not made the effort yet.)
