That's actually a good thing. Every Allan Moore translation to film has bit the big one. It's hard to translate something that in-depth, man.

Yes, its a good thing.


I have serious doubts Watchmen would translate properly to film.

In a 2, possibly 2 1/2, hour long film you'd have the rip the guts out of the 12 issue story for it to work at all on the big screen.

That's not a good start in any light for such a landmark comic.

Some things simply should not try to transcend their original medium.

This was one of those movies that I brushed off right away because I know they Hollywood couldn't make this perfectly (there alot of stuff that they wouldn't put in and I think everything from the book is needed) but I read a little thing on Ain't It Cool News were someone talked to the people making it and they said it would have been great and I trusted him since he was a huge fan of the book. But Oh well I won't lose sleep over this. I still think that is V For Vendetta does well this will still get made.

You know, if it ever does get made...is there any reason it would have to be only one movie?


I mean, we all know it'd make huge money, and movies that make huge money usually get pressure for sequals. Why not break the movie up so A) more of it makes it in intact, and B) it makes more studio money overall.
