Just got in from my second viewing of Watchmen - at the Imax.
I'm sensing a general sense of underwhelment (sorry is that even a word?) about the movie - lots of reservations from people...
I think it's a movie that needs a second viewing... You can lose that sense of nervous anticipation and just sit back and enjoy...
I loved it so much the second time. It whizzed by, I noticed more things, I enjoyed seeing the great moments again (that opening credits scene etc) and all in all I just think it's 10 out of 10 and I want to watch it again. You might know what I mean, so yeah, go and see it again!
Rorshach just blows me away. Such an amazing character. He comes across as some sort of demon serial killer superhero who destroys everyone he comes into contact with - and yet he ends up as the most human character in the movie. Stunning.
On the way home, I sat next to a foreign lady reading the Watchmen for the first time and we had a little chat, and then on my way to my house I bumped into a chum who'd just seen WAtchmen in Leciester Square. It's taking over the world!
