The Fight for #1: Week 10 Results
Congratulations to everyone who commented and/or sent in emails. You get an automatic ten points. And those people are:
Next week, the game returns to normal. But will Watchmen dominate again? We'll have to see.
And a quick word on Watchmen.
*gets on soapbox*
I'm tired of reading reviews and reports from uber-Watchmen Graphic Novel nerds who say "The movie sucks cause they left this out, or they change that. Blah blah blah I'm a nerd." Listen Pancho, tell me the last movie you recall where the film was 100% faithful to the book/comic? And please take your time to think about that. You had to have known a good chunk of stuff was gonna be taken out. If they kept everything in, the damn movie would be at least 5 hours long. And probably visually confusing as fuck.
I believe the movie was great. And the comic was great. Zach Snyder did the best he could translating it to film. And considering this movie was in the making for almost 20 years, you should be lucky there's even a film adaptation.
What I wanna hear from are the people who seen the movie but didn't read the book. What did you think? Did anything confuse you? Cause there was the classic trick of mentioning stuff in the film that was totally explained in the book. So I can try to help you out since I read the book a few weeks before the movie came out.
Anyway, that's all.
