Has Dr. Manhattan got the measles? Ozymandias looks like he's doing long division in his head. I like the Silk Spectre one though...

Actually....thats entirely accurate

Im really looking forward to this movie, but when you take these costumes out of context (i.e surrounded by the funky effects of the film) they actually look quite ridiculous

Thats Billy with just the suit on and no blue Dr Manhattan effect, as you can tell by the hands.

it's ok. only one i'm really impressed with is the comedian. others are distinctly average. i'm still not sure if they're gonna pull it off. i hope i'm wrong because i love the book but i haven't seen anything yet that doesn't tell me that this movie is not going to be disappointing.

By 'stunning' I assume you mean 'photographed in black and white'. There is a point where fandom just becomes *rse licking.

No you're not the only one - some people just think it's 'cool' to be constantly negative about everything.  I find those types of people extraordinarily irritating though tbh.

Not my copy of Empire yesterday. Has anyone noticed that Empire call Watchmen a "Masterpiece"?

Surely thats a step above hype? Methinks one runs the risk of feeling a little ashamed when this turns out to be another Batman and Robin.

That final poster looks rather nifty. Should have stuck it on the cover of Empire rather than Gollum. If this film turns out to be anywhere near what the book is - I'll be happy. Even if they tweak the ending - I'll be happy. Even if they use CGI to wipe out Dr. Manhattan's naughty bits - I'll be happy. Stop nitpicking you nitpickers.... ...they said this book couldn't be done as a film.....and now...........brilliance awaits.......................I hope......

Were they referring to Watchmen itself or specifically to the movie?

Watchmen IS a masterpiece.  The movie just should be.

No, really, I mean

Just the rape scene alone (which we know is there in its entirety) will ensure that isn't remotely a concern - and knowing what else is in there makes your statement even more ridiculous/unlikely.  Unless between now and March, WB have a complete collective nervous breakdown and cut the movie to ribbons, of course.

Seriously though, you absolutely MUST return to this forum after the movie's release and tell us what YOU think.

Is it only me that thinks this film a complete waste of time? The novel is perfect, and chunks have been removed for the film. All we'll be seeing is what was in the novel, and if they change it, it will be a lesser film. Same with Harry Potter, and many others.

At least films like American Psycho and Fight Club ADD to the source material.

...depends on your mentality I suppose. Personally I'd like Zach Snyder to get back to making entertaining zombie video-games rather than these mildly irritating homo-erotic comic book based video-games. And I'm gay.

What I find interesting is the number of people complaining about the rumoured changes the movie will make to the original source material - especially when the Hobbit is the cover story for this month's Empire.

Are these the same people that complained over and over about the changes Peter Jackson made to his LOTR masterpiece before they'd actually seen it? From what I've seen so far [in terms of stills and the trailer], the movie looks fantastic.

They said it couldn't be filmed, I'm sure someone once told Peter Jackson the same thing. Let's just wait and see...

Must I simply?

My point is that you shouldn't really go round calling something a 'Masterpiece' until you have actually viewed it..

Oh, and just because the book is a materpiece (agreed) doesn't mean the film will be. That you even think about mentioning that in a post is very worrying!

Erm... Dan Brown? Stephen King?

PLUS.. Watchmen the novel is a masterpiece as it blends genres together. One min its a comic, the next a novel, the next a comic within a comic, the next police notes.(etc). How that transfers to Film will be interesting!
