You be the judge.

I agree with Moore’s criticism of Hollywood as a vampiric machine that spoon-feeds moviegoers utter crap and all–especially when comic book licenses are concerned, but putting a hex on a movie?

I think Zack Snyder did a great job with his Dawn of the Dead remake. He was able to perform that difficult juggling act of maintaining the essence of the original while freshening the material and making it his own. Most directors fail miserably trying.

Sure, we’re not gonna get a frame-by-frame recreation of the graphic novel in all of it’s intricacies, but I think Snyder has proven he has the talent and enthusiasm for the subject matter to capture the spirit of Watchmen without peeing all over the source material.

Heck, it’s guaranteed to be better than The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Zack Snyder’s take on the movie is that it was going to get made by somebody, someday. He thought it should at least be made by a fan. What I have seen of it, looks great. Watchmen is one of my favorite books, and I’ve read it dozens of times over the years. I know there’s no way to put all of it in the movie — they changed the ending, after all, which means they have to have changed the reason the Comedian dies, but it’s okay. Looks fantastic. Still have the book to read, after all.
