With Wooter not posting reguarly there is a distinctive lack of comic book posts and mentions of comic book/graphic novel movies.

http://watchmenmovie.warnerbros.com/

I use to have the entire Watchmen collection - lost them to Hurricane Hugo in 1989.  Anyway, the Graphic Novel is among the very best ever produced and I'm totally jacked to see the movie.

So, any other Watchmen geeks around?

And the lech in me has to say this:

Silk Spectre:  WOW!

We're around Ralph! We've been talking about it for ages in the "Movies you're looking forward to" Thread. Following all the Fox/Warner crap. It's looking set to come out on the 6th of March. Can't wait!

I have full faith in Zach Snyder that he will do the story justice. I think since he is such a fan of it, he wouldn't make any stupid changes. It'll be interesting how he handles chapter 3 or 4... the one that is Dr. Manhatten existing in everytime whilst he is on mars.

I have a screensaver of the different WATCHMEN characters set on my computer.  The wife-person saw the pic of Silk Spectre II.  Of course she asked me if I feel that Silk spectre is pretty.

Now for any man involved with a woman, married or not, this is not the time to be honest.

Of course I told her I hadn't noticed.  Then I said Silk Spectre is attractive, if you're into that sorta woman.

sigh.  The wonderful world of women.

I'm having to go by memory - I lost my copies of WATCHMEN in 1989 and haven't replaced them.  I'm guessing the Graphic Novel will be re-released when the movie debuts.  I'll buy replacement copies then.

As for a Silk Spectre Spoiler - they're keeping the rape scene.

Well I just re read the comics for the...well I am not sure how many times I have read it. I am looking forward to the film but I do doubt it will be as good as the comics.

It is nice to know that while the Tale of the Black freighter will not be in the movie, they will be releasing it as it's own DVD movie. I can understand why as it would make the movie a fair bit longer but also a shame as it is meant to parallel the main narative.

I really hope they do not end the film with a huge battle of some kind, it made a fair bit of sense that the others felt kind of powerless towards the end.

I am also curious how they will get in information that was contained in those naratives at the end of the chapters (like "under the Hood" and "Some times Justice goes Hooded")

The main thing I will be intersted to see if it is included was for me one of the most disturbig parts of the whole comic.


Well time will tell. Now I think i may need to get a new copy of the graphic novel as mine is getting a  little dog eared.

Hmm I feel that I need to reread the book again because I'm blanking out on certain things. And I'm plotting on how I'll get into the theater when it comes out. If I have my license by then maybe I'll be able to get by.

Anyway that Watchmen Comic Movie.com website is awesome! I would love to have Rorschach and Silk Spectre action figures!

Mythbusters ruled out a practical grappling hook in their Bat-episode. frown

No sorry, that was a petong thing or whatever batman uses, so I guess a grappling hook might work with Jamies pulley-uppy thing.

...and why does that one guy look like batman confused

Because all of the Watchmen characters are blantant rip-offs of other comic book characters.

Silk Spectre II is a combination of Black Widow and Black Canary.

Try to figure who the others are based on.


That reminds me, did you guys look at the Watchmen costumes?

No...just no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no...

I just glanced at them.  A little on the el cheapo side in appearance, but then the Watchmen of the Graphic Novel were kinda cheap looking also.

(A quality costume cost $$$.  The "Wrath Of Kahn" Starfleet Red Jacket alone is a cool $200.  Don't ask how I know that.)

If your boyfriend is into this kind of stuff, you can get yourself a Silk Spectre II outfit.  You can always tell your mother that it's a Halloween costume.

P.S.  If you lived closer, I'd let you go with me and tell the people at the counter that you're my niece or something, you're too classy to be sneaking in through the back exit.

Yes Ralph, because going to see a movie with a dude I know over the internet who happens to live in Colorado is totally not gonna make my mom wig out.

I'm just teasing, I love you. I actually like the fun of sneaking into movies, tomorrow night my boyfriend is gonna have to sneak me into Friday the 13th. It makes me feel like I'm in 86' or something! It's really exciting.

But you're right, the Silk Spectre II outfit is pretty cool looking, maybe I'll surprise him at Halloween. (Which reminds me of this really awesome Kill Bill jacket that the Bride wore, that was custom made and cost major $$$. I know what you mean.)

Haha. At least your mother cares enough to be leery of men you know from the internet.

Is the money or the age thing that makes you sneak into movies?

The security at the theatres here is so lax that you could buy a ticket to see some PG rated movie, then go see the movie you desire.

Cheaply made costumes to wear once or twice is Okay.   I've seen some Klingon outfits mades from old car mats riveted to leather.  no no

It's the age thing I'm pretty sure.

And yeah... that's the easiest way to sneak in... Just buy a ticket for another movie... then walk right in to the movie you're actually going to see.  Usually ushers stand in front of the hallway to the theaters... not the theaters themselves.

If I had a 16 year old daughter, I'd be very troubled about a 48 year old guy offering to take her to the movies. laff
