Watchmen.

Greatest graphic novel ever.  Although I'm not really into comic books...  This and V for Vendetta are the only two graphic novels I've ever really read...

Either way! it was fantastic.  The whole damned story was just so breath taking and great.  My favorite character story had to be Dr. Manhattan's.  I wish they would've progressed Nite Owl II a bit further in his character, but whatever.

I can't wait for the movie.  I hope the director doesn't fuck it all up.  However, he seems to stay true to the comics when it comes to his movies.  Who knows.  Watchmen's pretty complex, and it'd feel like you'd have to cut out a lot just to keep the viewer from getting too confused during the movie.  I certainly hope not.

And I'll look down, and whisper "No."

I wrote about this in my blog, too. I really liked the graphic novel. I'm worried about the film, though. I think there are certain things I really liked about the book that can't be put into film.

I'm so going to read this soon!

My main concern is that they will turn it into just another superhero action film.  The Watchmen is NOT an action packed comic, it's a deep look into some fictitious character's personal lives and what drives them to do the things they do.  All set against the backdrop of the Cold War and the end of the world.  The Cold War being something the young people nowadays know next to NOTHING about unless they're paying attention in history class.


I'm concerned too.

Yeah, I'm 9 parts into it now. Gonna read the last 3 tomorrow.

I'm liking Rorschach.

Everyone loves Rorschach.

My favorite has gotta be Dr. Manhattan.  I found his stories interesting and his determinism.

The film is gonna be Epic if it's done right but, the trailer made me go away with the right atmosphere.
