Who Watches The Watchmen? Me.

I said yesterday I was going to see The Watchmen and I expected to enjoy it. I was right. Was this the best super-hero movie I have seen? No. That is still The Dark Knight. First of all, I am a comic book fan. I don't consider The Watchmen the greatest comic book story that I have ever read. I liked it, it was an intersting take on super-heroes, but not the greatest. This is a faithful adaptation but if you don't know the story you may be in for a surprise. There was a larger group to see the movie that I expected. Most of the time when I go to one in Calhoun on a Tuesday night I am the only one there. Last night there were 4 of us. 2 of them walked out about an hour into it. Watchmen earned its R rating. It is extremely violent and there are sex scenes, but that comes from the source material. It was fun seeing scenes straight from the comic. My favorite scene was when Night Owl and Silk Spectre went to break Rorschach out of prison. The prisoners were in revolt when they arrived. Just watching them go down the corridor taking the prisoners out was fun. The ending was changed but not drastically. Anytime you film something from another source changes have to be made. This was faithful enough to the source that I really enjoyed it. However, I can understand how non-comic book fans may not care for this movie. IMDB rates this movie an 8.2. It is #169 on the list of the top 250 movies. I gave it a 9.
Mike and Travis both knew that if you are bitten by a mosquito, it is a female that bit you.
Today's question is Grade 1/Math.
Which number has a 7 in the tens place?
  • A)75
  • B) 57
  • C) 157
Math I like. Get into algebra, geometry, or any others I am lost. This one I knew. 47-12.

The answer is A.

I posted most of my thoughts on the Watchmen at the cave. Shortly, I was overall disappointed in the movie.
