Not worth watching


J & I saw Watchmen this afternoon. A few things I enjoyed about it were the sound design, the comic book aesthetic and Jackie Earle Haley's performance but to be honest, I found the movie really boring, too long and by the time it was done, I felt totally annoyed. Every time Doctor Manhattan spoke, I found myself clenching my fists and gritting my teeth. His flaky demeanor and cartoony representation were getting the best of me. I just couldn't connect with him and his CGI'd screen presence (blue balls and all). We've decided to rename the film 'Crotchmen'.

Everyone I know who has seen this movie hates it. It cooled my want to see it and I am now waiting for it to be on DVD.
