Who Watches the Watchmen? I dunno, but I suspect that those that do will be disappointed.

I just saw a bunch of clips from the Watchmen. I was awed by the previews, but when you take away the cool music and zipply cuts and actually watch even a minute or two of this movie, its pretty clear its gonna be a flop. The acting is TERRIBLE. I mean, worse than a USA or Lifetime show. Really bad. 

I hope I am wrong, and that the clips were just bad examples, but this feels like a whole lotta suck is gonna be coming around. 

Sorry for the off-topic post BTW.

There's always Moore's interest in the occult. Or how for Dr. Manhattan "from the perspective of eternity it has all already happened".

As for myself, I'm afraid I will have to wait and see...

I hope you're wrong. It was a good graphic novel.

I've been curious about the film and have been waiting with anticipation. I used to own a first edition signed copy of the graphic novel(whimper) and have always wondered if they could pull it off as a movie.
I hope you are wrong about the quality, but comic book adaptations can sometimes go awry when translated to the big screen.
