The Mail watches the Watchmen

Oh, boo. The Watchmen credits were available online last night, but they've been removed by request of the copyright holders now. Very pretty, though... There are a couple of vids on youtube, but they're "not available in my country".

Anyway, the Daily Mail has reviewed Watchmen. Shockingly, they didn't get it. Also, it's a terrible indictment of the world today.

The review complains about the "shocking tastelessness" of the violence. It calls the vigilantes "alarmingly fascistic", which made me laugh out loud - the Mail saying that like it's a bad thing! Maybe they're secret left-wingers! It calls it unoriginal, pretentious, overblown, and hard to stay awake through. And it finishes:

Watchmen is unwatchable - a grotesque squandering of time, talent and technology.

This despicable trash will find an audience among sad sociopaths, deranged pseudo-intellectuals and brutalised, immature men of all ages. I just hope that there aren't enough of them to make it a hit. If there are, God help cinema.

I think I must be a deranged pseudo-intellectual.

Now, what better reason do you need to go and see it?

(Edit: And hey, the spam comments are getting more interesting o.O)
