I thought it was very good,but a little too long. Although Roger gave it 4 out of 4 stars, I would give it 3.5.

I didn't much care for the ending and I don't think they'll be able to film a sequel - it was hard enough to get done what they did.

The conclusion of "The Watchmen" movie was:

It's okay to murder millions of innocent people, if you believe that's the only way to make the world a better place.

----------

Watch it, with your mind open to the story line, and you'll see.

I would go into more detail, such as how the pacifist, vegetarian ends up doing what the evil administration is portrayed to be hungering for, but I don't want to spoil the movie.

You clearly missed what the movie was about.

I thought the movie was just that.. A movie made from a comic Novel?

Like Xmen or Firestar, Spiderman

Then enlighten me...

In the end, the pacifist vegetarian who set off the explosion, murdering millions of innocents, was portrayed as the misunderstood genius who knew - better than anyone else - what was needed to make a better world.

Even the hero, the all knowing Dr Manahatten, came around to the murderers view. He defended him - if you call murdering a former ally who disagreed with you a "defense".

Now, I can see why a Che Guevara lover would love this movie, since Marxism embraces the murder of millions - for the greater good of the collective, of course.

No - I saw more of what the movie was REALLY about than you did.

You soaked it up at superficially - without discernment.

I watched it with my brain engaged.

Everything has a message. TV and Movies are visual information feed straight into the unconscious mind.

Not a tad of anger in it.

Why do you continue to accuse me of shortcomings with one-liners, instead of explainations for your accusations?

...and why did you get rid of your picture of Che Guevara? Your timing is interesting. It smacks of "Soviet era" doctoring of photographs, to eliminate evidence of the "purged" person.

In this case, you remove the photo, so people who read my post, will no longer see the picture of the Marxist Che Guevara with your alias. You hope it will discredit what I have said. It's your version of revisionism. Dishonesty is the core of all Communists.

You are one strange dude. You make all sorts of crazy-ass assumptions about someone that you know nothing about based on one statement and an avatar. I make one statement, a true statement by the way, and you go into some insane rant and practically accuse me of being a murderer, and yet I'm the one making accusations. Yep, you are a strange character; just another Internet weirdo.

Ignoring you in 3...2...1...

1) What true statement?

2) Even if my assumptions about you are false, my points about the movie are absolutely true.

3) Nothing I said was insane.

4) I didn't accuse you of being a murderer.

5) You are still making accusations instead of indicating where - and how I am wrong.

If you have something to offer, post it.

Speaking of which...If you hate religion, why have you, now, choosen a religious avitar..?

To believe in a devil requires belief in a god - both are religious elements.

The movie left me wanting to see more about the watchmen universe, especially after that ending! I really always loved the Rorschach character, he's so gritty and strangely driven.

Luckily I found out about WATCHMEN: Tales of the Black Freighter DVD, which the company I work for is doing the campaigning for. They won't give me a copy for free but watching it when comes out Tuesday will give me chance to see more from this exciting, gritty universe.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
