Last weekend, Emi and I went and saw Watchmen. I was hoping to have read the book prior to seeing the movie, but alas, I did not. I liked the movie a lot, especially the first 20 minutes and the part about Rorschach's history. Now, upon discussing the cinematic successes of Watchmen, some may argue it was not as good as the
comic book graphic novel. I have since started reading Watchmen and let me tell you this: it's pretty awesome. The characters are more developed and because I'm a little slow I can go back and read the parts I didn't understand. Hindsight has also made me feel happy I saw the movie first. So was the book better than the movie? Probably. Was the movie pretty awesome? Yeah. Will I see the movie again after finishing the book? Most definitely. Now, the following video compares the awesomeness of Watchman to the awesomeness of X-Men. I'll just let you view the clip for yourself.
