Watching for Watchmen

March 6th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Sweeeet.  The first in-costume stills from the upcoming Watchmen movie have been released.  Though as New York magazine notes vis a vis that Ozymandias outfit, the fake-muscles-with-nipples look has a bad track record. And yes, I realize Watchmen is probably completely unfilmable, and that trying to translate a classic work that makes such brilliant use of the specific grammar of its medium will ultimately do nothing but make me weep tears of blood in the movie theater.  Let me enjoy my deluded anticipation.

    No, I think I shall write a book called “The Watchmen Delusion” just to ruin your irrational anticipation.

    Besides, we all know “Iron Man” is the superhero movie of the year.

    Two words: Dark Knight!

    asg, you can’t possibly beat a real-life drug addict playing Tony Stark. Search your feelings; you know it to be true.

    I share your fear of a fuckup.
