Wow.

1 Sounds more like a pocket review of <i>V for Vendetta</i> in a put-on German accent.

Was this the director's cut version I've been hearing about?  I was a little down on the first-run version they were showing last spring.

2 It was the Director's Cut, yes.  I never saw the first-run, so I have no idea which scenes were added to the DVD (except for the death of Hollis Mason, which fact I stumbled over earlier tonight).

I was quite impressed with Watchmen.

3 I've still only seen the first trailer.  The first trailer was awesome though.

And I've read the comic, of course.  Didn't like it, but read it.

4 Pixy, I don't know that anybody liked Watchmen, the comic.  It's not that sort of comic, y'know?  Impressed by it, admired it, blown away by it, yeah.  But liked?

The story is too ugly to like.

I'd recommend the movie to anybody who has read the series.  I'm unsure about anybody else, though.

I liked it, mostly. The pirate segments went on for too long (and I'm glad those were cut out of the movie) but for me it was Rorschach that really made the comic for me.

He's really a fascinating character. And despite how despicable he is, in many ways, there are other ways in which he's really very admirable. In particular, "Never compromise."
