And I’m back. New computer and time to blog.
So, even though the film isn’t out until next year, the first Watchmen trailer hit the internet (seemingly on Empire first, but also Apple). Empire have even done a trailer/comic comparison. They certainly made their mark.
Watchmen is a masterpiece of superhero comic books, and I love it dearly. I know that the film, no matter how closely it sticks to the book, will not be as good.
However, I can’t help but have a big geeky thrill at seeing panels of the comic book turned into a film. I know this is a weakness of mine, but it doesn’t stop the smile from crossing my face seeing the Owl Ship ascending from the river, Jon being blown apart and reforming in the canteen, Dan in the prison riot, the Comedian being thrown out the window, the Mars palace, the fluidity of Rorshach’s mask. I still know it won’t be as good as the book, but I will enjoy the process of watching it when it comes out. Does that make me a bad person?
