    Re: Watchmen: good or bad

    I saw it twice already (had to go with two groups of friends) and I feel that is too much, not that it was a bad movie or that it was over done, but because of all the little film critics bi###ing about why this movie sucked, or that it was over sexed. this is a straight up anti-hero movie and it is about time, look at night owl, I could easily compare him to superman in that he has a good guy image and that

    this movie should have been called Watch Rorschach, b/c he was the only real character (who sounds like clint eastwood/does detective work like batman/ and has the conviction for justice like punisher, all roled into one. ) who made this movie. I think that this was an average movie, however I liked the fact that this movie was able to capture the time period with having the music only stay in that timeline istead of hearing smashing pumpkins or katy perry playing during the movie. I think if you want to see a movie that shows a different side of superheroes then go watch it, or if you have read the novel go watch it other like some one said before, go watch this movie with out believing the hype and you will either enjoy it or not.

    I've read the graphic novel; which was amazing. Therefore, I have no high expectations for this movie. The graphic novel had so many specific details that made it great, that I doubt that a movie could duplicate it well.

    twas terrible what happened in the film, and what people did to each other, but it said what it wanted to say and did a good job doing it!

    and much agree with Hassun that the intro was awesome!
    i know i saw one person walk out with a year old when Rorshatch took the cleaver to the guys head, and also i saw some other people leave during the sex scenes, but hey it says its rated R.
    if it says 'Rated R for explicit violence, sex, disturbing images and nudity'
    why take kids to go see it?
    but besides that i heard people laughing at incredibly inappropriate stuff. like during deaths or when He found the little girls remains, and when they first showed Dr. Manhattan nude some woman yelled out ,"Is this a movie or a porno?"
    then i heard some people complaining about how it wasn't true to the story...
    but you know what?

    Who cares? why cant you ignore all the crap and watch the movie. forget the cheesiness, the nudity, because what people are making fun of, actually adds to the awesomeness
    and how can people expect it to be as good as the comic? they tried hard enough, making it almost 3 hours long, and having a great points.

    man, sometimes i wish i had a private theater....

    I also noticed that people were laughing at inappropriate times, mostly during the violence. I couldn't figure out whether it was the old Twain quote that when people don't know what to do, they laugh or cry, so it was an emotional reaction to the absolute violence observed. But, being a little of a pessimist, I feel that it was more a reflection of our society becoming more and more numb to violence. Regardless of what you think of Rorshach's 'justice', watching someone get meat cleaved isn't funny.

    it wasnt funny at all. and i was getting seriously pissed when everyone was laughing at it. they suggested a little girl got raped, mutalated, fed to a dog and who knows what else. how is that funny?
    seriously...i was getting really annoyed...

    I loved it.
    i read the comic previous to seeing the film and i had no complaints.
    Except: Bubastis needed a bigger role.
    but honestly i think its probably going to be my pick for favorite movie this year.
