Yikes, just saw this movie and think it is on the level of Glitter. It was almost 3 hours long and horrible. Save your money or get drunk or stoned before seeing.
north_runner saidLOL I had an inkling from the trailers that Dr Manhattan was not going to be wearing much, but at the same time I had no idea I was going to see that much dick.
Edit: haha I'm not exactly complaining, but really...swinging? Really? It was rather distracting when he was walking around.
It's right from the source material. In the comic, Manhattan's 'uniform' goes from a full black outfit, to briefs, to nothing. IMO it represents his detachment from humanity, not caring about nudity taboos.
czarodziej saidjust saw it tonight- it was loooong, and slow in parts, and doesn't explain how any of them aside from Dr. Manhattan got their 'powers' or superhuman abilities..... but it was pretty good. beautifully composed, deeply insightful and philosophic entertaining too- i liked it
1969er saidCouldn't line people up to go with me this weekend to see it, but will by next weekend.
I also just bought the moving comic DVD. It's over 5 hours long, and completely thorough with the source material, supposedly.
MunchingZombie saidZOMG! You need to see this.
Alpha13 saidI think calling it a graphic novel is a lame excuse for poor writing when it isn't a graphic novel anymore. But it is not as bad as "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and they didn't rush thru the "story" like they do with the Harry Potter Book adaptations so its worth the ticket price. You won't be talking about it a week after you see it tho.
