Who Blahblahs the Blahblah?

Who Reads the Watchmen?

[no photos of food here. It was dark!]

Snack the Movies: Watchmen.

  • Reverence in regards to source material
  • Attention to detail
  • Most costumes
  • Casting of Rorschach, Nite Owl and The Comedian (and most incidental characters)
  • Gummi Bears

Didn't Work:
  • Soundtrack
  • Overly-salty popcorn
  • Casting of women (especially new Silk Spectre)
  • Extra-heavy makeup effects (particulary "old age" and "Nixon")
  • My drinking from a giant beverage during a movie this long while sitting three people in from the aisle
  • Awkward sex scenes and 3/4 of the nudity
  • Overlong conclusion and denoument
  • General heavy-handedness
  • Mars (boring, just like in the comic)
  • Veidt's accent (which came and went)

  • Entertaining
  • Flawed
  • Not as bad as I feared it would be
  • I should never get more than a small popcorn and drink
  • Rorschach was great
