Who watches

The Watchmen trailer. By all accounts it’s going to be absolutely faithful to the graphic novel, and watching the trailer I could guess where most of the shots fitted into the comic. And that will be rather spectacular and lovely, but also a bit disappointing. I know there isn’t as massive a history in superhero movies as Moore and Gibbons had to draw from in comics, but there could be room for a film that examined that in its medium the same way they did in theirs.

(A convoluted way of saying yes, of course I’m going to watch it, I just wish they could come up with something a bit more original.)

Buy the Watchmen graphic novel on Amazon.
