Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
Watchmen should not have been made into a movie, at least not this movie, but I do hope you fanboys enjoy your three-hour music video of your favorite graphic novel. I am so disappointed in this film for its own sake.
Actually the movie was much better than the pretentious comic. But for fans of the pretentious, I can see how they might have been upset. Likewise those who cherish all the Reagan-era Leftist perspective-based allegories.
As for writing amoral "dark" comics, go read some Savage Sword of Conan. Roy Thomas' people were doing this sort of thing a decade before Moore, and didn't feel the need to incorporate their own sophomoric anarchist ideological theories along the way.

What anarchist ideologies? You mean the ones that were slammed into the ground in the plot?The comic's pretentious? More like you're pretentious.

Although I enjoyed the movie, I did find some of the music background choices kind of distracting. At one point I even wondered, 'why do we need music now'?

I completely agree, so much wasted potential.

Perfect way to put what happened to this movie. Had potential, didn't reach it.

I agree with your review completely. I hated this movie. The acting isn't horrible, and it does look somewhat interesting in pictures, however, it was just so dark and sick, I just couldn't bare to watch the whole thing.
It had zero entertainment value, and calling this a superhero movie, gives all other superhero movies a future cloud of doom. Why they added music to some of the pointless scenes in this movie is beyond me.
But, like you say, 3 hour music video.
And, one, I would not want my music played in if I were a performer.
I usually like super hero movies, and sci-fi, but I did not like Watchmen. It sucked.
