Watchmen is drawing closer and closer, as March 6th is LITERALLY two weeks away. The question on the minds of graphic novel fans around the world is a doozy:
- Have you read the graphic novel or any portion of it? If so, when, why, and what do you expect out of the film? Are you looking for a word-for-word translation of the text, or are you looking for something that captures the same aspect and tone of the graphic novel?
- If you have not read the graphic novel, why not? This isn't meant as a question to pick on you in any way, but rather to see why you haven't decided to. Are you not a fan of comic books? Does the text seem intimidating to you?
- What do you think of the Hollywood hype machine going behind a movie that has been "in the making" for over two decades and was never given a chance...but then the studios saw the hype for the movie and jumped on the train?
- Who is your favorite character, and what do you think about the actor chosen to portray that character? Do you think they will live up to what you are expecting?
- Are you disappointed by the change of the ending to the graphic novel for the movie? Why?
- Last but not least, will you be picking up and/or watching Tales of the Black Freighter on DVD when it is released as a companion to the movie, or will you wait until the definitive DVD version is released with the Black Freighter cut back into the movie?
