So...I went and saw Watchmen last night. I enjoyed it a lot, although it was a little too long. Visually it was stunning. I loved the fight scenes - very visceral; the bit where the gang member's arm is obviously broken was full of awesome and win. Didn't have any issues with the altered ending. From what I remember of the original, I guess it was intended to be more believable?

Of course now I have to re-read the comicbook to refresh my memory, cos it's been far too long since I read it last.

Apart from that my weekend was a tad wasted. I couldn't seem to wake up before midday, so I lost half the day. And apart from going to the first non-Cam game, I didn't really get to do much else as work kept phoning me up. Hopefully next weekend I can do something useful, like nosing around the shops for cheap films and stuff.

I've also seen Watchmen now...

... and liked it. The changed ending made sense, I suppose - though without the genetic engineering thing, it removed the reason for Bubastis' existence. So it didn't make any sense it/her being there, since there was no particular reason for him to have a genetically engineered Lynx.

Other than that, no prob :-)

Though I've seen one confusing review, basically saying that "yes, it's a sort of 'Best of Watchmen' thing, which is good - but by including all the gratuitous sex & violence, it's become the sort of thing the comic was railing against! LOL!"

Y'see, I never saw Watchmen as something which was objecting to gratuitous violence in comics. What with the comic, um... having a lot of violence in it.


Too bad about the semi-wasted weekend.
