  1. Hi Ian, I haven’t dropped in in a while.

    Watchmen looks very impressive. Rorschach is THE comic book hero I can actually get behind. (Sociopaths I can get behind. Best line. “You don’t understand. You are trapped in here with ME.)

    It’s shot and in editing, so it will come out, I just hope it is brilliant and enjoyable.

    Heh. Good comic book movies are possible. My parents (mid-70’s) really liked Ironman. And loved the first Indiana Jones movie. They don’t get any of the batman movies, since it wasn’t like the 60’s series. heh.

  2. Hi, Leo, haven’t seen you in a while. 🙂

    The movie does look impressive, and in fact has had a test screening up in Washington State. The rumors I’ve heard about the change to the ending worry me, because I think they’ll throw off the thematic balance of the tale, but everything else seems to have been nailed by Zach Snyder.

    (I’m not against changing the climax, which is not the strongest part of the book, but the way it has been changed doesn’t sound… right. At least to me. They still have plenty of time to get it right, though.)

    I do like Rorschach as a character, though as far as heroes go, I think I prefer his antecedent, Steve Ditko’s creation The Question. That was, if nothing else, an incredibly cool idea for a hero.
