Movie Reactions ——- with Spoilers.
Yes, there seems to have been some mistake…… I believe I ordered the giant squid.
You must not have heard that Admiral Akbar sent a letter to Zack Snyder on behalf of all the Mon Calamari requesting that the movie version be changed from the offensive graphic novel version.
Talking heresy now, but the plot change in the movie makes more sense than the squid.
More countries were directly effected, and Dr Manhattan made a more credible threat than the squid.
I’ll get my coat.
Mmmm… fried calamari… with marinara *burp* – oops… Did you need that for something?
Jeremy Drive By:
Watchmen was good. Understand reason for no squid *huurm*
Wanted more codpiece less cockpiece *koff koff*
Rorschach nearly broke my heart at the end.
vote for Quake PLEEZE!
*reverse gear noize…skreeech*
Don’t see with lesbians *huurm* very misogynistic and violent towards women.
I saw it with Kerry and one of our bestest friends (who’s a lesbian) and it made me watch it in a new light. It was pretty rough and both ladies didn’t like the violence, esp. (and understandably) the rape scene and the pregnant scene.
Yeah, the violence against women is one of the main reasons my wife never finished reading the GN and why I ended up not bringing her to the theater with me.
I don’t think she would have handled the shoe still hanging from the bone very well at all. That was an unexpected adder, but probably a necessary one to make it clear to the viewers who hadn’t read the GN.
Yeah, and the crime scene with “Lesbian Whore” didn’t help any.
But they did both coo over Silhouette walking up to the girl and kissing in the post WWII scene….Teh_Hotness.
So maybe we can all send Jack MP3’s with everbodies attempt at pronoucing hurrm..
It was horrible to watch all of those horrific scenes both in the book and on screen (little girl/dog, pregnant woman shot, Rape scene which was MUCH more brutal in the movie than I’d pictured it from the book) – I have to say, however, that I feel those plot points (I guess that’s what I call them) were as strong as they were to make clear the type of dehumanization the characters were undergoing.
The Kennedy assassination in the movie was pretty intense as well. I remember Dan having some issue with that when he saw it.
I actually agree with what Van said re: Dr. Manhattan vs. giant squid as the threat to scare the world into cooperation.
Hi, Jeremy! Good to see you!
Jeremy was here! He drove over my foot!
Dr. Manhattan vs. a Giant Squid would have been a comPLETEly different ending. . . .
Crap, I posted the wrong link
Only have til 11:59pst tonight. Boo.
Sorry about the foot, Jack. 🙁
Meh, who cares about an online poll anyway.
Deadpan has more important stuff to discuss/do!
Well, I’d say that blog post that Jack found pretty well sums up all my criticisms of the Watchmen movie…..which is impressive considering the guy was trying to make those points to defend the movie.
^ Is that photo safe for work?
Yep, Amy. Funny, not dirty.
Yo Jeremy, if you’re still there – I’ll get over to check out the Quake poll. You might want to drop that link in the Unshow thread, where everyone will see it.
Funny picture, EssBee! Yes, while I was very pleased overall, and didn’t mind the slow pace – –
There needed to be squid.
LOL! Some theater owner is a GN fan with a sense of humor. 🙂
Surprisingly, I was not intimidated by Dr. Manhatten’s penis.
Watchmen livejournal: *snicker*
Good review of the extra DVD/Blu-Ray release of “Tales of the Black Freighter” and “Under the Hood”
