....Um....I'm gonna wait a while to buy it for DVD/Blu-Ray.

Mainly because Zack Snyder himself has admitted there's gonna be like 5 different releases over the next year.

The only piece of music I remember from the film is All Along the Watchtower.

The only thing I remember about the film is the marketing.


I kid I kid. Jackie Earle Haley was great. And it's always nice to see what is essentially the gross domestic product of starving Africa spent on a pretty juvenile film that betrays the intelligence of the original graphic novel.

The best bit in the film was the Dr. Mahnattan backstory. Though that's all thanks to Philip Glass's music from Koyaanisqatsi they used.

This week we get some REAL films- DRAG ME TO HELL and UP!!!!!

If Watchmen can show us Dr. Manhattan's giant glowing penis, then the next logical step is LAEM which will get us Rei's giant glowing boobs (which I'm sure that the men in the audience will be much more receptive to).

I don't remember things, you know, generally. Which isn't very helpful when I'm studying Physics at Uni.

The logic here is quite simple: For both guys and girls, looking at a nice set of boobies is much less embarrassing than looking at a big semi-erect penis.

I don't think it was semi-erect, I just think he had a big dong.

He could control all matter, so a little boost in the trouser department would not have been hard. Unless he had it to begin with, but that just wouldn't be fair.

Omnipotence and hung like a horse? Some guys get all the luck...

It's from the Watchmen graphic novel-- but as you can probably tell, the dialogue has been changed. :tongue:

Um, projection? And the word you search for is "turgid", and it wasn't. I checked the Owner's Manual and everything.

with the DC of the film I only hope that the original ending (i.e. comic ending) is in it instead of the theatrical one. that pissed me off, i walked out of the theater. i'm a purist :/
