Talking Comics

I saw the premiere of Watchmen at midnight on the IMAX screen and holy smokes was it ever awesome. My experience of watching the film was similar to the first time that I saw The Matrix. The action was spectacular, the characters were layered, and it actually made you think. Only with Watchmen I didn’t have to spend a week getting Keanu’s annoying voice out of my head. This time it was something else that distracted me… what was it again… oh yes the #bigbluedong. Looks like even Dr. Manhattan has something to prove. Ah, but who can blame him with lil Miss Lady Latex getting all snuggly with Mr. Horny Beak up in theΒ fieryΒ sex pod.

Go see Watchmen and then read the graphic novel. I’m half way through and it is equally, if not more entertaining than the movie.

Thoughts on Watchmen, comics, & superheroes?

    Man, that guy felt awkward… you an tell. He was trying so hard not to have to make eye contact. You should ahve asked him if he was looking forward to seeing the #bigbluedong. He’d have tried to crawl up his own arse.

    I loved the movie… even though it had no Squid, the watch in the chamber change that was made for no apparent good reason, and the ending switch… I think it stayed as true as it could to the message.

    “They don’t make a lot of comics for kids.” – Best quote from the video above… possibly meant to drive the comic industry out of business by insinuating everything is now “Heavy Metal”esque.

    I picked up the novel about 4 months ago when I heard they are making the movie. I liked the novel but wasn’t overwhelmed by it.
    I went to the movie yesterday and I loved it. I never saw a movie adaptation so loyal to the original piece.

    Now I know how I’d react if I were interviewed….. geeks just don’t interview well. Too much light…people look at us…we have to say things rather than just type them….

    Man, you guys are harsh. He didn’t seem too bad for someone that’s probably not used to being on camera everyday.
    It’s interesting to see someone with an uncommon job like Comic Book shop owner interviewed.
    Just don’t compare his on camera demeanor to someone like Lisa that is so comfortable on either side of the lens.

    @Mstree: agreed. as soon as the camera was turned off he was super chatty and very comfortable. he knew tons about the comic book industry and was really interesting to talk to.

    The questions were pretty dumb though…

    He didn’t seem too enthusiastic about the premiere at the end there!
    A friend of mine was reading the graphic novel of Watchmen. Looks quite good!

    At sometime the casting directors and the SFX department must’ve had a discussion about how Dr. Manhattan’s dong should look. Bet that was a hoot.

    The original Silk Spectre outfit was hotter than the Latex version… whos with me?

    I’m not much of a comic book geek, but I love the bone series of comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bone_(comics))

    – the new colour editions are really cool
