    You didn’t like Watchmen, excellent now tell me Why? I mean this movie was just on another level, it was amazing. So brilliantly made and it was almost the exact same thing as the comic. It was not by chance that the comic is on the best 250 novels of all times, believe me it’s not.

  2. Eoin Says:

    YEah, Watchmen is the best comic book film ever. It stayed true to the source material. Zack Snyder used it as a storyboard, he knew that it was one of the greatest literal works of all time.

    (That’s a different Eoin, not me – E.B.)

    (Although I agree that Watchmen was the greatest literal work of all time – E.B.)

    The graphic novel is quality, the film might be a bit too long admitly.

    The film is a mixed bag, it’s main fault being that it has probably tried to cram too much in by being faithful to it’s source. If Superhero movies aren’t to your interest, this sure won’t convince you otherwise.

    Rorschach’s storyline thread comes out the more interesting of the bunch, and also the best developed.

    And yeah, Ackerman is an airhead, the crass, thoughtless sort.

    Phhh…! Fans of these graphic novels deserve to be mocked and mocked mercilessly for taking them so seriously.

    It’s about a bunch of costumed crime fighters, oh God forbid someone should tamper with this sacred text…
