    I thought short attention spans was a sign of youth. That big explosions and fast action gave way to meaningful plots and timely pacing as one got older. In 2011 I guess we better hope for the former otherwise the movie will be decompressed.

    So no love for Watchmen here? It was everything I expected and while it was cringe worthy (and not for kids) I thought it was overall the best Alan Moore comic movie we'll ever see.

    Anyhoo, I totally agree on the internet thing. It ruins everything.


I enjoyed V for Vendetta a lot more than I did Watchmen. I haven't read V for Vendetta yet though so maybe that helps since I can look at the movie as a film and nothing else.

I do have to wonder if part of the reason I found Watchmen boring was the fact I knew everything that was going to happen, quite often word for word. The movie team is in tough on this one; go too close to source material and it's boring, stray to far and purists get upset.
