watchmen

i decided to write a little something about watchmen. (this is for you, eddy! lol) i saw it last wknd (opening wknd) and ... i dont really know how i feel about it. actually, it's so funny. right afterwards, i was on the phone with bert and he asked me, "so what do you think of it? do you recommend it?" and i couldnt say LOL

i really do not know how i feel about the movie.

on one hand, i like the story. the characters: good and bad. how it's overall filmed and put together.

on the other hand, it's soooo graphic... in all ways possible!! SOOO graphic that this ONE con weights about the same as the pros i mentioned lol seriously. is this rated NC-17? lol is it really necessary to show that much for that long? lol i mean it's no porn but the sex scenes are quite similar to a rated NC-17 movie... but more sexy? lol and if you're wondering... yes i saw an NC-17 movie once.

and all that blood and violence. if i have to describe it, i would reference kill bill... but more gruesome. which is understandable since it's based on a comic book (just as how kill bill was sorta based on animes). and also, they dont just show the typical gruesome things. there were some that were just uncalled for lol but i'm assuming they are just being true to the comic book. (eddy? yes?) it's just hard to watch lol

so i guess if i had to pick, i would say to go watch it once. but be forewarned! a family (parents with a boy) walked out of the movie theater i was in! it was right after a gruesome scene (that i covered my eyes for) that came after the long sex scene lol

for the ppl who did see it, what do you think? like? dislike?

You can thank Hollywood for that. The comic is not that graphic and the sex scenes were really short or only hinted at in a tasteful manner.

Violece and sex scenes were added in on purpose to make the movie "more bitching."

Yeah I know, a lot of people complained about it too even the comic book geeks. It actually made Watchmen not very Watchmen-y because it wasn't like that in the comics at all.

My review is still the same. I didn't like the movie at all. I heard that it follows the comic pretty well, but I went in there expecting a superhero story, not a philosophical one. There wasn't enough action for me, but that was just my expectation. If you don't care about action and just like the comic, you might like this movie.

I'm not sure about that movie either. I think having not read any of the comics leaves out a lot because i felt pretty lost throughout the entire movie. It felt short even tho the movie was over 2.5 hours.
