I Watched the Watchmen

I proudly admit that I'm a geek.

I've seen all of the Star Wars movies (including the shitty new ones). I went to a math and science high schools. I love action movies. I think math jokes are funny. I like deep movies. I go see movies at midnight because I can.

That said, I have not seen Lord of the Rings. I have not read any of the Harry Potter books. I have not seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show more than 200 times (although I have seen it far more times than it deserves). And I did not read Watchmen.

I did go see the movie, and I thought it was a visually beautiful action movie. Nothing more, nothing less. There were parts that I didn't understand (towards the end, the whole "on Mars" bit was ridiculous), but I thought it was awesome. The sex scene was a little gratuitious.

I probably wouldn't have minded if Patrick Wilson had looked like this rather than this. Nice ass, for sure. But the hair wasn't doing it for me in this movie.

I actually liked Watchmen.

hey, I saw the Watchmen - at the premiere no less - and then proceeded to graffitti UD campus with "WHO WATCHES THE WATCHMEN?" and Rorschach's symbol. This at 4 in the morning with an 8 a.m. the next day.

Sometimes, I am bloody brilliant.
