I was not looking forward to this movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0409459/ I prejudged it to be shit because it's the same director as 300 which was shit, and because the trailer had no substance which reinforced my perception of shit. But then this little morsel caught my interest: http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/Movies/02/03/watchmen.background/index.html Sounds promising. "Depth of characterization." 300 could have used some of that. All cock and no balls as I like to say. I never do recreational reading, but I am considering reading Watchmen.
