    I know nothing about the comic and in fact only heard of it about a year ago when I read news of the movie. I will be curious to see what I think of it compared to people who are huge fans of the source material. I think it's interesting to compare things like that. A movie can be a complete and satisfying entity unto itself, and yet still disappoint fans of the source material for not including their favorite parts or for having a different sensibility than the one they interpreted the story to have.

    That is so true. Take the first Willy Wonka movie- very different from the book and in fact I heard that the author HATED IT but I personally love the movie as a complete seperate entity. The newest Willy Wonka with Depp is great too and I am glad that both films exist.

    Except the Aunti Mame musical remake Mame with Lucille Ball- that was crap and totally did the story and character injustice and is unforgivable! I love Lucy, but that was a big pile of crap,lol. There is only one Auntie Mame and her name is Rosalind Russell,lol.

    I have spoken!

    LOL.

    Indeed, like LOTR, HP or (more closely-related to Watchmen) 300/V for Vendetta.

    Personally, I've never gone into a movie thinking "I hope that they don't ruin the film". I've always had the understanding that film is a completely different medium, with different limitations and different emphasis.

    I'm also surprised by how Rorschach tends to be everyone's favourite character. Is it the appeal to moral dualism? Or his strict ethical code (juxtaposed against his violent nature)?

    I'm pretty sure that the prison scene is in the film, from the trailer we can see Silk Spectre 2 and Nite Owl 2 fighting in a place with bars.

    I don't know if I should be excited or not. Everyone really hyped Sin City and I walked out about 30 minutes after realizing there wasn't a second of redeeming quality to that piece of exploitation...

    So, I'm going to go to this anyway, since I haven't gone to a film lately, and if it turns out to be a pretentious piece of drivel I'll take my popcorn and go...

    Can I hug you for this, too?

    I've never thought this way, either -- not even about remakes.

    (Honestly, I also never understood why people say that remakes ruin their predecessors.)

    As for Watchmen, it looks interesting. I'll be seeing it.

    The Trailer by far beats anything I've ever seen, it was pure brilliance. I cannot wait to see this movie, as it is destined to be truly amazing.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
