So I saw "Watchmen" last night.

Okay, so yeah, it's a biut dark.

Oh who the hell am I kidding?!

It's plenty dark but my kind of movie.

Plus the soundtrack is completely awesome. (Yeah, I said 'awesome.'). I think the last movie I heard Simon and Garfunkel's The Sounds of Silence was when I watched "The Graduate." The movie opens with a Bob Dylan song and towards the end, there's Jimi [Hendrix]. Arlo was the only one missing. LOL!

It took me a while to figure out who it was that played Nite Owl and then when it came to me toward the end ('Oh Hard Candy!'), it was hard for me to look at him the same way again.

And Rorschach = love. I mean seriously. He has to be one of the most psycho good guys ever.

And this quote from the movie, said by the psycho himself while doing his stint in prison wins the BEST MOVIE QUOTE OF 2009:

"None of you understand, I'm not locked up in here with you, you're locked up in here with me!"

That line actually made me love that guy. --nods--

I went into this totally blind, by the end I was like... "So that's what fucked up superheroes would be like... well shit that's me right there...lol."

Yes! They were so fucked up. But I was seriously okay with that. :P

Me too. My brother had told me that it wasn't you average hero movie. He'd been waiting for me to tell him why. And when I did he got so happy... apparently his friends didn't get it, lol.

I saw Watchmen last night as well. Went with a true fan, but not quite a fanboy. He is saving that for Star Trek. Anyway... I had not read the graphic novel so was unprepared for what as to come with the exception of the killing of the Comedian.

I enjoyed the movie , but I thought that the identity of the killer was fairly obvious early on. And the love scene between Silk Spectre and Nite Owl was poorly done, awkward, with very little chemistry. And if Billy Crudup has not been enhanced, then Mrs. Crudup is one happy lady! All I can say about that is WOW!!

Rorschach was wonderful, by far the best one in the movie. When he said THAT line I almost cheered.

Hey you!!!! Sorry I'm so late in responding to this! *looks sheepish*

Yeah, it was pretty obvious who the one behind everything was. Oh God! When Nite Owl and SS were getting it on - hubby whispered to me 'geek porn!' LOL!

I think everything about John was enhanced. Just the face was Billy's and the voice. *nods head*

Joe took out my eardrum when he laughed at that line. LMAO!

Miss you...
