I've watched Watchmen about ten times....The Directors Cut. I think it's a great film. I had never read the graphic novel. By the time it came out I had long since stopped reading moderns. In fact, I stopped reading new comics around Spiderman 33.
Anyway, great film, great opening sequence and a movie that should get a lot more respect than it does, IMHO.
**Disclaimer** Remember, I'm a chat board performing artist- so take everything I say with a grain of salt.
I never claimed to be any good at it, but there you have it.
"If it's not disclosed...you're being hosed." Who coined that phrase? Me, damnit! And it's still true.
"Into my heart an air that kills,From yon far country blows
What are those blue remembered hills,What spires, what farms are those?
That is the land of lost content,I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went and cannot come again."
Nothing I say is intended to be a factual statement.
