Watchmen Watch

I'm not exactly anti-Watchman, only vaguely so. But this report has to be disturbing even to the faithful:

Despite getting 22 minutes in (of what I keep hearing will end up a 150-some odd minute theatrical release) we got exactly 13 pages into the first issue of the comic.


Hurm.

If it really runs 150 minutes, and if they're leaving out all the pirate stuff, then that pacing may be OK.

I can see absolutely ZERO chance any of the "Tales of the Black Freighter" will be in the movie. Furthermore, Someone should definitely make a "Tales of the Black Freighter" standalone movie.

Tales of the Black Freighter will have a dvd release.
