    Apparently we will see, either in the theatrical release or the DVD, Mothman being hauled away to a mental hospital. The scene is set in the 50s and, from what I gathered, it sounds like a comedic moment.


    Awesome! Did any script even mention Mothman?

    Nice find! That was an interesting read (particularly since we haven't had anything to talk about for a while). I can't wait to see how Rorschach's mask looks on screen. I'm curious just how quickly those blotches move and if it will be distracting.

    A flashing Rum Runner's sign?

    Good find and good news.

    A flashing Rum Runner sign? Could it be the scene where the police captures Rorschach?

    Indeed. I don't believe that she would play it so mysterious if the scene were anything but that. Her hyperbolic statements about cinematic a milestone or whatever she said must be Rorschach fawking up the cops and jumping out the window.

    I'm really curious how they're going to handle the window thing. I like how the comic does it, but I don't see Rorschach's "GGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRR" translating d-i-r-e-c-t-l-y to film. I don't doubt Snyder will make that whole scene really fawking awesome, though.

    No doubt it's the rorschach vs the cops-scene, but I just wondered why she "hinted" at the flashing sign. It doesn't flash in the comicbook. Does it?

    Re-read the Moloch-related scenes. It's flashing red. And it's definitely flashing when Rorschach gets set up.

    You're right. Every other frame in that sequence is red-ish. I was looking for the sign itself. Very subtle and very cool.
    Damn, I wonder what else I missed...

    Hence Alan Moore's adamant opposition to a "movie" adaptation of Watchmen. His work invites multiple, leisurely, and enjoyable* readings... -- as opposed to the sort of puritanical, pseudo-intellectual nonsense** that plagues so much of fan-dom.


    *That is, if you are the variety of perv that gets-off on the whole void-of-existence-thing.

    ** Which, apparently, I am quite not-so-less-than-guilty of.

    God forbid she give a description of those costumes she saw hanging.

    Seriously though, it all sounds pretty cool.

    Watchmen Comic Movie is seriously the best site out there for anything Watchmen. God, I love that site. Can't until the 11th. (Which is when Zack Snyder answers over fifty questions regarding Watchmen on the site.)
