    Idk, the movie wasn't as bad as I initially thought in retrospect, but I still don't think it was great. At the very least they kept most of it the same as the series, which is more than can be said about the other major movies made from Alan Moore comics that I've seen

    I watched it a second time a while ago and I was highly disappointed.. the first time was good enough though.

    I'm glad though, because I was thinking of buying it and I know not to now

    I just saw this for the first time recently. I watched a 3.5 hour edit which has scenes from the animated short "Tales of the Black Freighter" spliced in. It's currently my favourite Superhero movie of all time. It's just so damn good.

    I hear they're making an HBO series on the Watchmen. That might be great.

    Idk, Sopranos was the best television show ever. True Detective Season 1 was up there. I don't care about anything else, but that's 2 jewels.
