Yeah, but the question is does it have Tom Waits in it like Mystery Men does? I rest my case.

They never called themselves Watchmen. Outside of that one instance, I mean. They're just referred to as masked heroes.

And, instead of the Crimebusters in the comic, it's "The Watchmen", so it's all good.

They were called the Minutemen.

I just got back from the premiere. Fucking greeeeeeeat. I still prefer the graphic novel, but it's kinda like the Shining movie; the source material in both is damn near flawless and it'd be impossible to do either of them complete justice so you need to take them on their own merits.

Silk Spectre II was so hot

Oh god, I was hoping they didn't actually refer to them as "the Watchmen" in the movie. So I guess that means that Zack Snyder doesn't get the title at ALL...

Saw it yesterday.

It is aight for what it is. Like FZ said, it is kind of hard to make the graphic novel into a movie. There is just so many little things in the book that they didn't (and couldn't) put in the movie due to time constraints. You never really get the background of exactly why and how all the heroes came to be. In the book you get to read over Under The Hood to have a better understanding of everything. They basically used the opening credits (which were about three minutes) as a substitute for Under The Hood.

If I had never read Watchmen then to be honest I probably wouldn't have cared too much for the movie. I feel like the movie compliments the novel. But isn't it always the case with a book to movie?

It was real eye candy though. It is def worth 13.50 (IMAX), a few pints of ale (if your theater lets you bring in drinks), and three hours of your time though!

Yeah, that was all I could see when he was on screen. That, and Nixon from Futurama and his "ARRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!" whenever I heard his voice.

Meh. He didn't look touched enough, to me. Not REALLY hurt. But I guess we're at odds with a lot of stuff about this movie, so take that with a grain of salt, I guess.

In the comic he was blocking the lock so they just cut his throat and burned through him with the blow torch they had.

As I recall, they had a key. And the man blocked it. I guess Zack Snyder and Co. decided to save time for the cinema crowd.
