Partly Robot Finally Watches the Watchmen

2015/01/img_1757.jpg

Fifteen years ago I was absolutely 1000% certain there was no way anyone could possibly make a movie that would do Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel justice. I still had that attitude five years ago. Also, I was not in charge of the remote at that point in my life. Last week, I found the Watchmen DVD just hanging out at my local library.

Not bad.

Not bad at all.

They really pulled it off.

Also, they included Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” on the soundtrack during a love scene. The actual Leonard Cohen version of the Leonard Cohen song that everyone loves to cover the heck out of. (Which reminds me, I need to read Beautiful Losers sometime.)

Four and a half out of five giant, hairless, radioactive, blue guys.
