Watchmen, or Here We Go Again...

Remember reading our one graphic novel pick, Watchmen? Seems like a couple of years ago (though, for some reason, didn't find it on our list of previous selections). Since then the potential movie project has been through three studios. Can anyone say "turnaround-hell"? It's now in bed with the fourth, Warner Bros., with Zach Snyder (of 2004's Dawn of the Dead remake fame) in the director's chair. Maybe this time it'll actually make it to celluloid. We can hope anyway -- the story is a natural for a very cool movie. That's if it doesn't end up being a watered-down for-the-masses movie-by-committee.

everyone chose their own graphic novels to read that's why it's not on the list, dear ;)

Oh my, I'm honestly hoping they don't manage to mangle this into a movie. Look at what they did to League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Not to mention nutty Alan Moore's rage and rants against V for Vendetta (which I quite liked, but still) my fear is a Watchmen movie could never capture all of the subtext and angst of the graphic novel. I think it would be lost on the masses if it did.
