    I think that might be the problem others are having. Is the scenes that just weren't working well with the story overshadowed the ones that did.
    Yes, I can see those particular scenes as appealing only to a shallow-minded blood lust and therefore cheapening the overall content of the movie. One image that comes to mind is the midget's henchman gets his hands cut off. There was no need to show it.

    I can see the first half. The second bit about the heaviness and exhaustion is interesting but pretty funny too if that's what they were really going for.

    I enjoyed it overall. I was not expecting anything profound from a comic book adaptation. I didn't think the movie was "too long", but then I never am bothered by this factor in a movie, if I'm enjoying myself. Au contraire, all you ADD types. ( I might draw the line at seeing Berlin Alexanderplatz all at once, or some of these other films I've heard about that are super long ) The sex was surprising but not objectionable to me.

    I wonder how Alan Moore feels about seeing his formerly cooler-than-shit Watchmen characters as action figures available at Toys R Us.

    According to a friend of mine, he's now the leader of a cult and spends most of his time shagging lots of women, which, although that is great fun, is rather a waste of a talent
