Watchmen

March 14th, 2009 · 2 Comments · TV/Movies/Music

I took Pete to see the movie “Watchmen” this afternoon. It was three hours long. I enjoyed the film but I am not sure how much. I had read some of the graphic novel, so I knew going in the movie was not going to be a comic brought to the big screen. This is a piece of literature brought to life. If I had to give it a grade, I would give this a movie a solid B. It did however succeed in making me want to finish reading the graphic novel. Maybe I will have a better appreciation after it is released on DVD and I can watch it again.

    Since when is a B a bad score? 😉 I’m looking forward to seeing it now due to the “literature” aspect. Maybe I’ll come back and comment here again when I’m more experienced!

    Damien: I read part of Watchmen as an English lit assignment in college. The novel has made more than one list of the top 100 novels to read in your lifetime. It just happens to be a graphic novel. My husband loves the book.
