It's 3:27 AM and I just got back from seeing Watchmen.
And I thought it was okay.
Now, it wasn't bad, but it was just okay. Okay, maybe it was just good. But either way it wasn't great.
Zack Snyder takes Alan Moore fantastic world and translates it almost directly to the screen- and fills it with everything from prolonged fight scenes to prolonged sex scenes to make fan boys cheer.
To me, it feels like something was lost in Watchmen and that to me proves that Alan Moore did in fact accomplish what he wanted - he made a graphic novel that wasn't just a storyboard for a movie.
I'd probably write more tonight, probably about how the other directors previously attached could have done a better (or at least different) job - Terry Gilliam, Darren Aronofsky, and Paul Greengrass - but I'm mad tired and I've got to make it to class tomorrow.
But hey, I'll be seeing it again tomorrow night - in less than 24 hours - so maybe my opinion will change.
But until then, Goodnight and Good Morning, and thanks for stopping by.
