Watchmen

Who else is pumped for this movie? I finally got around to reading the graphic novel, and now I'm really excited to see what they do with it on the big screen. It's been considered to be un-filmable in the past, but judging by the trailer it looks like they did a pretty good job with it. I'm worried about them fucking up the ending, though. BTW, if you've never read the graphic novel, DO IT. It's fucking amazing.

The graphic novel is AMAZING. The movie should be good.

Yep, can't wait. I saw the full trailer at the IMAX in London when I saw The Dark Knight. Definitely going to be seeing this there.

there is an animated version of the comic book available via iTunes. i've downloaded the first issue and looking forward to the next 11 to catch up. the narrator is a guy, who also does the female voices, but it didn't really bother me. it's also more than just a voice and panning over the frames, there's a bit more to it, such as seeing Rorshach's mask move as it was described in the comic.

Well, Zach Snyder (the director) confirmed that they changed the ending, thereby completely fucking up every bit of plot, message and character development that the novel builds up to, and for no other reason than he just felt like it. No wonder Alan Moore is such a bitter prick when it comes to people making movies of his comics.

How the FUCK do you change that ending? Is it going to be fucking happy now? Goddammit.

I dunno, the newest trailer still says March.

***POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD***









So far, all Snyder has said is that the giant Kraken is no longer in it. Which, as you know, would mean that the entire plot is for shit. He said it would have been too hard to film, which to me is absolute bullshit. You're telling me that in an age where we have movies like Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, and Cloverfield that you can't make a giant squid that really does nothing but sit there??!
