Another mirror shot for you :P This one from the Gaspard Yurkievich interview (some French designer).
So interesting, right? :P
Anyway so I wanted to write a little bit about Watchmen, as I went to see it a week ago. It seems there are many people who love this movie and many that don't like it. And I am seriously among the people who don't like it. I'm usually not a very harsh movie critic, but this movie sucked sooo bad >.<
Some of the actors were terrible, especially the owl and the yellow woman. Hugo hated her so much haha, and I kind of agree. I don't understand why they cast her at all.
Also, it was just too long, man. I can handle long if I'm enjoying myself (like LotR), but after 1.5 hours all they had done was explain the background of the characters. And I guess you have to somehow, but then maybe they should have split it into two movies or something.
Question: Do they have super powers or not? In a way they seem to have been normal people signing up for special crime fighting, but in another way they are punching their fists through walls and catching bullets in their hands. Maybe it is explained in the novels, but it wasn't explained in the movie at all.
It kept jumping between super cheesy and serious, and it just happens in a way where it's hard to take the serious parts serious and hard to not have the cheesy parts look ridiculous. One scene they are having deep philosophical conversations and the next they are sawing off arms. It makes it hard to get into the movie I think.
That sex scene in the big owl was weird and awkward. Lolo & Hugo are convinced the director must be gay.
&& lastly, I just don't think they told the story well. I kind of like the concept, but the way they introduced it all and told the story was so choppy and not fluent at all. It was kind of hard to follow what was happening sometimes, and why. I never really understood what list the Comedian was talking about when he was crying.
