The movie was spot on. Like watching the books on screen.
It has been enough years that a totally new take will bring in a new audience.
Looking forward to it but only a bit. Like I never watched the new series of Twin Peaks. Why spoil brilliance.
idk about this david dude but i do know zack snyder creates the best dark and grimy colors for movies that need it... say whatever you want about the dc universe but the colors and look was spectacular. watchman to me was absolutely amazing and its replay-ability is nigh endless for me
im really glad its doing its own thing. Ive read and watched the watchmen story to death. Its amazing, but i dont need it AGAIN. That said, I love the world and the characters and I'm excited to see more from the universe
You know, this whole idea that the cinema adaptation of Watchmen was this very divisive and contentious film, doesn't actually hold up to reality. When the film came out, it was for the most part greatly praised. I was shocked though to see thsy years later that reality had been rewritten, as inspired by the growing dislike for the director. But when the film originally came out, while there are always going to be people who dislike things, it was not the contentious and controversial film that people today believe that it was. That's a weird piece of anti Zack Snyder revisionism.
ugh. lindelof SUCKS. all questions and intrigue. no answers or payoff. this looks like it's going to be terrible. It wasn't good enough to be a stand alone property so they bastardized it just to cheat their way into an audience that they didn't work for, no doubt in this case to spread ideology that isn't clever or deep.
I dunno man, I liked The Leftovers , but I think they ended it the way they did by announcing that many questions straight up wont be answered because of all the backlash they got from Lost. Seems like this dude knows how to bring up compelling questions and interesting plotlines, but not how to pay them off in a satisfying way, and cops out to some touchy-feely shit. That's how both of those series ended...
So, new heroes, new villains, new time, new place, and new stories...but same name?! Sounds like copy right infringement to me. I got an idea lets write our own bullshit but use the already popular name so we can get paid for stuff we wouldn't get paid for elsewhere. Count me out.
How interesting is that Rorshach copy cat? As if the echo of that lawful-good-damn-the-consequences mentality lives on, I love it.
"None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with you. YOU'RE locked in here with ME!" -Rorshach
Sounds to me like a they are slapping together a cast that checks off all the proper minority groups and trying to cash in on the name. The point of the comics (and the movie) is that the need to vigilantes and super beings has ended. That real world problems can only be fixed by real world people. Batman or Superman actually cause more problems than they fix.
Multiple directors seems like a very bad idea. One guy with one vision makes a lot more sense to me than multiple, where everyone wants to make an episode for himself, just like the new Star Wars movies
Want to tell a new story? Ok. Use different chacters? No way!!! If you don't have the characters, you DO NOT have the Watchmen!!! You are just taking the name to try and legitimize your show. You say the show needs stars. Stars can't carry a crap story. Thank you, now I don't have to set up my DVR for it. I am CERTAIN others feel the same way. This project is dead before it debuts.
