Who Watches the Watchmen?

WatchmenWell, in less than 12 hours Cap’n Carrot, Scene-Stealers Eric, and myself. I’ve been thinking about a Watchmen movie for some 22 years now (because hypothetical ‘who would you cast’ exercises are a comic-book nerd discussion staple), so the idea that I’m this close to actually seeing one is a bit mind-boggling.

I’m saving my review for my on-camera debut with Scene-Stealers, but we’ll see if I’m coherent enough to post some comments later tonight. I will say this – The fact that Kansas City didn’t get a press-only screening of Watchmen is not encouraging. Tent pole films like Dark Knight, etc. routinely get press only screenings, and it’s only with the films that studios are unsure of (or know are utter shite) that everything gets rolled into the standard ‘sneak preview’ screenings.

So there’s that. I’m going into this with very much a “Lucy will yank the football away” mindset because let’s face it: Comic fans know nothing if not disappointment.

    I always thought Brendan Fraser would make a good Cap.

    Brendan Fraser wouldn’t make a good anything.

    Just to let you know, I probably will not read your review until after I get to see the film. It’s not that I wouldn’t trust your reviews (hell you guys have been right along with my views for 85% of the time), but this movie is to important to me to be swayed one way or another until I can form my own opinion.

    Oh, no…good sir. There shan’t be a written review! I just finished filming the first ever live-action Eric/Alphamonkey team up for Scene-Stealers.

    But if I were to write a review it would simply be:

    As in a “Fuck Yes” or a “Fuck No” ?

    OMG I am sooo spoiled!!!!! God damn mine curious nature!!!!

    Also, thankyou so much for not writing anything beyond that. I am getting shivers even thinking about the DVD release.
