Poll: Frankenstein's 200th Birthday - Iconic Portrayals

Frankenstein's Monster was born in the early hours of June 16, 1816 during a waking dream of author Mary Shelley. Her dream would become the novel, Frankenstein published less than two years later in 1818. Since then, Frankenstein's Monster has seen many different incarnations over the past two centuries. Javier Bardem is next slated to pay homage to the character in Bride of Frankenstein (????), the second film in Universal's "Dark Universe" franchise.

Which Frankenstein's Monster movie portrayal do you think is the best and most fitting tribute to Mary Shelley's original?
