    The opening credits of Watchmen was pretty good. Maybe I'll have to watch the movie after all.

    Without spoilers, tell me,
    1) Is it faithful to the comics or does it diverge wildly?
    2) Is it good for someone who has never seen or read Watchmen stuff?

    There were changes, mainly with the ending, but I felt the changes were good and you can't expect the movie version to be 100% like the book.

    I went with one friend who never read the book and she really enjoyed it, though another friend didnt but that's because she didnt like the gore and rape scene, also it was a silly stupid superhero movie (she has bad tastes in movies anyways)

    The movie is extremely faithful to the book but in the interest of time they had to cut a lot of stuff. In some cases the scenes they kept were changed, sometimes for the worse. There were a few things that the movie did better than the book. If you haven't read the book you might not understand the movie as well as someone who did read the book, but you will also have the benefit of not comparing the movie to the book at every turn, which is what I did.

    Yeah I was sad about the things they couldn't keep in, but I am still anticipating the extended version so I didnt let it keep me down while watching the movie last night.

    Its 10:30 pm here.

    Also I am getting so sick of my bf's girlfriend. She is always so moody and fighty and it brings him down a lot. Tonight we were supposed to get drunk and play ps3/wii but she kept calling him when we were watching Sunshine and got angry that he couldn't talk much and angry about him not sitting next to her last night in the theatres and other minor bullshit that he just decided to go home.

    BITCH!

    I hate to admit that I've acted the same way as that girl before. Ugh, that could not be long enough ago.

    On an unrelated note, I smell something green. This makes me angry... I hate it when my roommates let people smoke in the house/not in the attic. Mother Fuckers

    That would be Adelaide time.

    Adelaide is the City of Churches.

    Thus, I conclude evilbob is probably in a church.

    I played it earlier today. It was a little frustrating at first, because they just throw you in there and the controls are a little weird. But now it's pretty cool! I guess I'm only a few levels in, though (I've destroyed the lightning tower thing, I think that's as far as I got). Right now I'm at work.

    Ok guys advice. I have the Watchmen comic but I haven't read it. I'm seeing it tomorrow night. I really don't feel like cramming it all in tonight and tomorrow afternoon. So, my question is: should I Wiki the plot of the comic before I see the movie? Or should I go in blind? Either way I'll be reading the comic once I've seen the movie.

    I liked the movie ending, but I found the book ending better, not only because of the big change, but because of a few other lil things they left out that I felt really added to the characters.

    I think it would be cool to see the movie and then read the comic. Then you can argue with people that they are all just biased from having read the comic first.
