Just another weblog

#27 (Extremely Brief)

Wow, all I can say is wow as I sit here in complete astonishment to how insanely inspiring and revolutionary Watchmen is. What a great book, I insist people not even consider this in the realm of other graphic novels (not that there aren’t some fantastic ones) due to the general gravity of the content of the book, I cannot make a sound testament to the sheer brilliance of this novel. Alan Moore does a fantastic job drawing you in on unconventional characters that you’d normally detest and hate, Rorschach and The Comedian completely blew me away, I genuinely felt for both of these characters and their struggle and/or lack thereof. I will be there opening night with all of my hopes leaning towards a complete faithful translation onto the big screen, who knows what I will do if I am let down, I am putting way too much faith into Snyder but if he sticks to the source material he will be fine. I plan on updating this later tonight, possibly tomorrow with some scans and quotes that I found interesting/breathtaking and a bit more of a write-up on my general feelings concerning the novel and my worries regarding the upcoming film.


No update as I have not watched a movie in some good time, I was a bit under the weather this past weekend and I am getting caught up on Dexter due to the fact that Season Two came out last week, but hopefully I will be able to update soon. School is going great, should be a fun, easier semester but we will have to see. As I said before expect an update to this later this evening, possibly tomorrow morning, and thank you for reading as usual.
