Re: Watchmen

I saw the trailer. The movie looks like it will be cool, but I never read the comics. Those muscular blue electric dudes look cool, though.

"None of this is really happening. There is a man. With a typewriter. This is all part of his crazy imagination."

Re: Watchmen

That actually looks pretty cool.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Watchmen

i have seen the comics in stores and they looked interesting. the movie looks great tho.
i like the look of Rorschach, he had kind of a 1920 superhero thing with the hat and the trench coat.

Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.

Re: Watchmen

yeah, he has a Dick Tracy feel to him.

Re: Watchmen

News update: So, apparently 20th Century Fox is holding a lawsuit against Warner Bros., who is producing the picture, for copyright infringements. 20th Century Fox has owned the rights to make a film adaptation since 1991, where several times throughout the decade Watchmen was attempted to be put on the big screen. However, they would always be put on hold, and eventually dumped. Fox hasn't had any recent plans for making Watchmen yet again, so really I don't see why they're going balls-crazy over this. Talks back in 2005-6 for Watchmen were made, and Fox did nothing. I doubt Fox will win their lawsuit, as the movie is already post-production, and there would be millions of dollars just wasted.
