Who watches the watchmen? Me.

Let it be said that the Watchmen movie did not make me puke.  Let it also be said that I have a fair suppressor reflex.

Zack Snyder stayed really closely to the graphic novel, for which I applaud him — I’m sure the temptation for change must have been giant — and the film does have really awesome moments, like the montage setting up the alt history.  Jackie Earle Haley is kickass as Rorschach and Billy Crudup (Dr. Manhattan) and Patrick Wilson (Dan Dreiberg, who they thankfully did not beautify for the film) put in pretty solid performances as well.  But… the actress playing Laurie! AGH!  To be fair, I didn’t much like Laurie in the book — but the actress playing her made it so much  worse.  And, to be frank, could there be a more awkward sex scene in the history of film?  No.  No, I don’t think so.
