I think Watchmen was a good adaptation but not a particularly good movie. It sacrificed a whole lot in an effort to squeeze as much of the plot in as it did, including the entire meaning behind the plot, the feel of the storytelling of the book, and quite a few of the more poignant moments. A few scenes were admittedly done well and I should really reserve my final opinion until I see Snyder's cut of it, but the truth is that some director would have had to take some liberties to truly communicate what makes the Watchmen story special. I'm still really sad that Aronofsky didn't wind up getting the project, I think he would have been excellent.
This is what I watched tonight (Do you have enough Kurosawa in your life?)
Simply start with the letter “A,” and post the title of one of your favorite movies. The next player posts their favorite movie title beginning with a letter “B.” For instance, post the title “Apocalypse Now.” The next player could post the movie title “Battlefield Earth.”[/IMG]
