    Hard to tell over the internet but, I wasnt being serious. I felt stupid when I didnt catch onto the Ozymandias/Pharaoh deal. Like I said, I couldnt even remember his name until I got home and that is because, I finally put two and two together. I obviously wasnt paying the closest attention when Goode was on screen because, I know all about Ramses the Great. That was my stupid attempt at venting. But whatever. haha. Rest assured, I dont really think Ozymandias is a stupid name. lol.

    My strategically placed "haha's", dont always get the job done, I guess.
    My rant wasn't necessarily directed at you anyway. It is the fact that many people would agree with what you said about Ozymandias. It's the fact that our country has one of the worst education systems in the developed world, and that is going to cause us BIG problems in the future.

    • You know, when I went to watch it, I didn't really know what to expect. I had a feeling it wasn't going to be a kick ass action movie like Dark Knight, but I walked out feeling a little frustrated regardless.

      I liked the movie don't get me wrong, but it seemed to be more of a message film about the evils of our world than a super hero movie, and it was drawn out way too long. At one point about half way through the movie I turned on my cell phone to see how much time had gone by. The Comedian was really kind of a twisted guy, and he was probably my favorite character besides Rorshack (that prison sequence was awesome). The plot seemed to proceed at a snails pace, and looking back on it, it seems kinda necessary, but that movie could have and should have been a good half hour shorter. And the ending kind of left me unsatisfied. Not so much with the journalist part, but when they just gave up and walked out of the Artic Facility without really resolving anything with Viedt.

      Visually, the movie was amazing (and I went and saw it at a digital theater, so it was absolutely stunning). The dark tone was perfect. Watching Dr. Manhatten blowing people up (I don't really know if that's the correct term for it...), was gory enough to please me and tide me over through some of the slower sections.

      But like almost everybody, I have to seriously question the soundtrack choices. 99 Red Balloons? Seriously?

      Good movie, not great. I doubt that I'll buy it when it comes out, but it is definately a movie to watch at least once.

      • The movie would have been a lot better had it taken place sometime during the montage. If it had taken place during the '60s and 70's I would have liked it more. Could have delved into the JFK assassination more, cold war, Vietnam war.

        • yeah but then it would be exactly like every super hero movie. this was cool because they were washed up and over and they had to make the decision to come back. especially during a time where the world was at the most danger.

                Yea, it completely misses the point of the book. I mean this isn't supposed to be just a normal superhero movie.

                  Well it's based off a book and those were all minor parts of the story.

                        • This movie was brilliant/awesome/incredible/I loved it.

                          But 2 of the people I saw it with hated it. Not for everyone I guess.

                          The hype was well-deserved imo. Truly a stimulating experience.

                            You don't have to have ever heard of Watchmen to have spelled the word "Rorschach" correctly.

                            • Saw the movie last night. I thought they did a pretty good job. There were a few things left out of the book I would have liked to have seen, but the main story and what it was about was presented very nicely and it was quite easy to understand...even if one hadn't read the book. Of course, I think one would appreciate the film more if one had read the book first simply because of the extras that you can't see in the novel and give a little more insight to the story. All in all, a great adaption. Can't wait until the DVD comes out.
