Who Watches the Watchmen?
I’ve been going back and forth with people about this all weekend. I liked the movie but I know a couple of people that thought it was wack. Critics said that “true Watchmen fans” are likely to be disappointed and non-fans are gonna feel that the subject matter is a little dated. I liked the long complicated story, I even thought they could have pulled a “Kill Bill” and stretch it out over two movies. Other people are saying that it was drawn out and boring.
The graphic novel was a little before my time, by ’86 I hadn’t really gotten into comic books like that yet (i was still trying to get my piss in that big cylinder bowl) but I did read up on it before I watched the movie (with all the press, how could you not) so I kind of knew what I was getting myself into. Now after seeing the sh*t I definitely wanna check out the comic… but that’s me. What do you think?
