Woohoo. I love me some virals. Especially when the virals include news footage of Doctor Manhattan:
(via SF Signal)
I’d feel a lot better about this movie if it wasn’t directed by Mr. “Okay let’s go super-slo-mo and then super-fast-mo and then super-slo-mo again because I am such a hack director that I can’t create mood or atmosphere without using amateur tricks” Zach Snyder.

Somebody likes to see naked blue guys. I thought you had kicked that fetish after getting arrested backstage at a Blue Man Group show, but old kinks die hard I guess.
I would eventually like to see this movie.
McGee, I’m totally sick of that effect too. That can go along with the closing-your-medicine-cabinet-to-reveal-the-pyscho-standing-behind-you one. At least they didn’t give it to Michael Bay.
Man, this had better be good. If not, I’d rather they hadn’t made it at all. Like The Hulk. Oh boy. That was one that needed the Ol’ Yeller treatment.
Is there a way to subscribe to your blog WITHOUT having to be subjected to the puerile pap?
Superhero movies are for the 5 to 17 year old demographic and fantasy escape for impotent, fat turds.
Very interesting! I have stayed away from most of the Watchmen stuff until very recently… wanting to be pleasantly surprised by everything, I guess. One thing – and I hate to be a part pooper – that gets me here, though, is … I noticed at least three font/type-faces in that viral that were not historically correct. The director of that clip should have done a little more historical research to make it seem more real, maybe? Also, some of the clothes in the “man on the street” segment were off.
Ok, now I feel like a total jackass.
Here’s hoping the movie kicks major ass though!! The previews shown during the Batman film blew me away. Good stuff.
Looks like ‘Mr. Sophisticated’ wants to be included in the next segment of “I Get Mail”
Mr. Sophisticated, there is no way I would let my 5 year old read Watchmen.
Seth, that is some responsible parenting on your part.
I commend you.
While I wouldnâ€™t expect your son to be reading Wittgenstein or Proust (like my 5 year old), I think exposing him to Hemingway or Steinbeck might be appropriate at his age.
Mr. Sophisticated’s new name should be Mr. Elitist. Or even Mr. Obama! Zing!
Oh, and BTW, there are plenty of us who adore Steinbeck and books like “The Corrections,” but can still enjoy a comic book. Or an ultra-violent character study like Watchmen. Or a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about comic books like Kavalier and Clay (which I’m currently re-reading).
Watchmen looks awesome so far. Snyder did a pretty decent job with Dawn of the Dead. Mr. Sophisticated is clearly a troll.
