idk why people think lindelof creating lost is a good thing...the show was intriguing for many seasons ONLY because we thought there was an actual answer to the mysteries and questions it was raising...but it turned out it was just creating mystery and questions without any reason whatsoever....OF COURSE you can make an intriguing show if you just keep creating more mystery, there has to be some sort of payoff though for it to actually be good writing.
Oh, to bad. Lost sucked. The entire series was writers pretending they had an idea, and being pissed that their fans were smarter then they were. All writers are arrogant lazy snobs, who learn to spell, and type. Writers have contempt anyone with a good idea. They pride themselves on ignoring source material, and if they do understant anything, they work their damnedest to undo anything good from the source material. The brutalize other writers concepts, and offended if they are asked to just try to repect their own work. The Watchman show will be beyond horrible.
The 2009 Watchmen movie, was one of a kind, fresh, unique, rare, & complexed, superhero/super-villian, story telling film, which we haven't seen the likes of, to this present day. Synder did an excellent job, on his outlook, screen play & direction, adapted from the Watchmen comic book series. I've been waiting 10 years, for part ll. I guess I'll be waiting, for many more years. The tv series, 🤔???
HBO needs to get the FOH with this remake, especially with that terrible re-imagining of Roscharch's mask. Instead, they need to do a full-fledged reboot of Spawn. That would actually excite me. Also, Lindelof sucks.
I'm very glad they aren't making/redoing old material; it gives a new sense of wonder and excitement rather than a boring retell, as it's not just the fact I like Watchmen, but the world they were able to make. That's what I'll get out of the series, that gritty, yet cartoon-esque superheros like a 60s superhero show done right and fit for modern viewing. Well DC and CW doesn't have the rights to it so hopefully it will be good
If Rorschach has a kid and he's the protagonist like one of those many cliche's, I'm going to give myself a lobotomy to have no recollection of what I learned here today.
Malin Akerman and Matthew Goode's acting choices aside, the Watchmen movie gets the basic plot points while changing the alien squid to Ozymandias framing Doctor Manhattan. I hope the show makes no reference to the alien squid and keeps that plot point intact from the Zack Snyder film.
I already hate it, sounds like some little kids fanfiction, you don't make new characters and then paste the name watchmen on them. If it doesn't have the original characters, THEN DON'T CALL IT WATCHMEN, leave alan moore's amazing story alone you money craving douchebags
Why can't HBO make the 100Bullets series already? Wtf are they waiting on, that will definitely be a massive success.. Tom Hardy has been pushing for it, and for good reason too.
Why the Watchmen? Unless they're doing The Doomsday Clock.. I don't see the point.
I’ll be honest. I’m not excited about watchmen 2019. It sounds like too much of a knock off, it makes focus is on Trump, Putin, and New Cold War, it’s gonna be very sjw, and the original characters are probably gonna be either changed dramatically from their original form or non existent.
Why make a _Watchmen_ series if you're not adapting the original story in some way? It's not like that there's a vast roster of amazing supporting characters in the Watchmen universe or an extensive background that is not somehow connected to the main story.
I mean, you wouldn't take _V for Vendetta_ and not tell the main story, but tell a story set in the _V for Vendetta_ universe with new characters... or would you?
This has a potential to be great or be a huge flop. I get that they want to make it as original as possible, probably for copyright reasons, but the only way shows like this work is if there's some mention of the original characters in it. I'm not jumping the gun or making assumptions of how this universe is going to work. But, I'd have made it where the new characters drew inspiration on the original ones. I find it hard to think that a series titled Watchmen won't have any of the groups previously mentioned in the film or comics notified in the series or recognized in it. Meaning, they know about Dr. Manhattan, and the events that followed, ect.. I also don't want this to be just another SJW show, or a show that shoves things like feminism or LGBT things down our throats. If it walks the line without it being too preachy than I am in. I am a fan of this series, so I can even get past the new characters, even if the old ones aren't mentioned, but it'd be nice if they got the respect they deserved and were at least mentioned in it. I mean Daredevil didn't really mention the Avengers, but there was enough mentioned to let us know. We'll see, I'm gonna be interested in seeing where this goes. Hopefully, this remains as dark as the movie was, since it's on HBO there's not a real restriction on how it can flow.
I am quite sceptical. The 2009 adaptation was great and quite lot comic book accurate do we really need some other adaptation/take on watchmen? I mean the most appealing thing about watchmen is how realistic characters are and conflict of ideology between ozymandias and rorschach... If we are not getting that where is the point exactly? Why not better adapt something what wasn't adapted before?
Shit trash. They shouldn't have done this. They should have done Astro City instead (Kurt Buisek would of probably played ball). I wish Hollywood and Warner Brothers would stop raping Moore's work. There's tons of creaters who would love to get their work picked up by HBO. I hope it fails hard.
what's up with fans bitching , moaning & complaining so much before tv series/movies come out ?! like damn when did fans start doing this shit ?' when i was growing up I never saw people talk shit or boycott something that HASNT EVEN CAME OUT YET ! i'm convinced y'all just need some ass or something cause y'all be angry for no reason lmao
