    Yeah, here's the Tales of the Black Freighter trailer. It will be released on March 24 on dvd, then also interwoven with the film when the Director's cut comes out.

    I can't wait to see this movie... some blogger who saw a preview screening said the entire movie was ****ing awesome. For those worried that it might suck.

    edit - Wil Wheaton was the blogger.

    edit - BU censors the link.. replace appropriate *s

    that's pretty cool! although, I couldn't see clearly too much and am left wondering who the studio is that handles this project.

    That "Gone Too Soft" clip is great. very important.

    "Daniel...You are a good friend."
    I'm glad that moment is in this film.

    DAMNIT. So you know how they pass out a bajillion free passes to see advance screenings of movies? It's always a first come, first serve thing. So I get one (YAY) and I know it's gonna be packed, so I get there an hour and fifteen minutes early. I walk in the door and the ushers are turning everyone away as it's already full. Blast, foiled.

    Ive had my eye on this one for awhile now.I think it will have plenty of cheese in it but I will rent it for the special effects alone.Very few movies are worth the theater cost.

    I think the director or producer from 300 helped with this one.His first attempt at this kind of filmwork was Sin City (tanked I think) which I couldn't make it through.300 was phenomenal though so there's another reason why I must at least give it a chance.

    Watchman directed by Zack Snyder, who directed 300. 300 and Sin City were both comics written by Frank Miller, who directed The Spirit.

    It gets confusing :)

    Sooooo yeah the movie is out.

    The title sequence (after the first scene) is ****ing incredible. The first three quarters of the movie are excellent. The end is meh. The final final end is perfectly done.

    Overall I enjoyed it. Rorschach was perfect, Dr. Manhattan was very well done as well. The Silk Specter was fracking stupid and Veidt was not that much better.

    So yeah, better than what I expected and probably the best Alan Moore adaptation to date.

    I thought all the characters were done well. But yeah, Rorschach and Manhattan really stood out.

    Holy crap at that end.
    3 parts that made me go :con:/:eek::

    1) during the intro, when the hippie-girl gets shot after placing the flower in the Ar's cannon. That's just... the most disturbing execution I have ever seen in a movie. I had to back it up and watch it again.

    2) The fat guy in jail, hell, why not saw the cell THEN get his arm off? No way!!

    3) Obviously when Jon juice Rorsch.

    Surprisingly Malin Akerman is probably the first woman I found very attractive using that haircut.

    Watched it yesterday and i loved it. Sure a lot of material was left out that should have been left in. But the people with me who hadnt read the novel didnt seem to enjoy it as much as i did. They said that all throughout the dirt they were really confused. Also they didnt understand the characters. What they did enjoy were the fight scenes and the violent stuff in there. But i loved it so i guess thats all that matters. Looking forward to the extended edition.

    I still haven't read the Watchmen GN just yet, but it is on my night stand. I did not have a problem keeping up with events as portrayed in the movie. Manhattan was done well, but Rorschach was awesome, especially in that jail cell scene. To say that Malin Akerman is hot in this flick is an understatement.

    This movie will definitely be a welcome addition to my blu-ray collection.

    Amazing movie, the little boy in me squirmed at the
    well endowed doctor manhattan - you would think that by 20 it wouldnt bother me to see that :(
    , but everything else was super (pun?). I feel it would have been better if I had background with the novel, but it was just one of those things I never heard about at the time... or ever until now.
