I agree with you in all aspects other than it being as good an adaptation as Harry Potter. Zack Snyder left out little in Watchmen, but with Harry Potter, it was like the director just stripped down everything but the basic plot. Sure, Snyder left out some of the most interesting bits, like the "word on the street" type thing with the Newstand vendor that provided a bit of context, but it was still a very good adaptation.Qwertyuiopasd wrote:I believe it was Tim Buckley who said it this way... It's a supplement to the comic.
Read the comic, then you get to watch the movie, and see (parts of) it acted out with wonderful visuals.
Seeing the movie by itself isn't going to be anywhere near as good. It's probably one of the best adaptation movies in the last 10 years. Not quite as good as LOTR, but perhaps of Harry Potter. Sure, there's some issues and things we'd rather they hadn't done, but all in all it's a good translation from text to screen.

By the power invested in me by tabloid-reading imbeciles, I name you a pedo-dog!

No no no, don't be silly. Just that there is the possibility that Kishimoto Masashi stole the idea.fueledbycoffee wrote:Detective TurtleHolmes wrote:Hey, if anyone here is up to date in Naruto, (the manga) then one will notice correlations with the "grand plan" of Watchmen to that of Naruto.

You did not just compare the great Alan Moore to Naruto...

Shame they left the Pirate bit out in the movie but I guess that would have made the film too long.
