The Watchmen Experience

by

Not surprisingly, The Watchmen took the weekend box office quite handily, taking in a total of $55.7 million.  The next closest contender was Madea Goes To Jail with just $8.8 million.  The showing that we went Friday night wasn’t packed to the brim, although one of the staff had mentioned there were only 20 tickets left when we arrived. Online orders who were no shows?   We’ll never know.  But the crowd that was there was pretty entertaining, well to a degree.  A row behind us we had the ‘comment on everything we see’ group.  They included such marvelous quotes as, “Man, that guy is blue!”, and “Ahh! You can see his junk!”

As for us, we sat in silence with contented smiles as we saw the once pages come to life on the big screen.  Many things were left out of the film but were by no means necessary to a first-timer.  Guess you’ll just have to go read the graphic novel to find out.  Overall, it was very well put together and worth every penny, even down to the soundtrack.  Hope you enjoyed it as well.  If you haven’t gone out to see it, well what are you waiting for?!

    The comic book has a very different ending, including some seriously trippy tentacles:
