>>
>>64496095
Because it's too weird for mainstream but too edgy for nerds.
Me and you are not giving them enough money for it to be worth it
>>
>>64496095
Does /tv/ consider this capeshit?
>>
>>64496095
They only make movies like that now, what are you talking about
>>
do you mean mediocre adaptations of great comic book source material?
>>
>>64496912
/tv/ considers it whatever suits their mood best, like everything else.

Like how everyone apparently 'hates' TFA and suddenly George Lucas is their hero.
>>
I have very mixed feelings about this movie
>>
>>64497002
TFA was mediocre and no matter how bad the prequels were Lucas still made the original trilogy. /tv/ and the rest of the internet like to take everything to its greatest extreme though.

so what?

>>64496095
Garbage compared to the comic, but all cape shit films are garbage compared to this
Decent film
>>
>>64497004
I sat next to some frat-dude-bros when I watched it, and somewhere in between all the laid-on-thick 50's and 60's music with the scene periods, one of these young men, younger than me even, opined audibly to his buddy "god-damn, they're laying it on thick, aren't they?" *all along the watchtower plays, etc*. Insulting the audience's intelligence, in a way.

On the other hand, even though I never cared to re-watch the movie, it did significantly improve on the comic by having Dr. Manhattan be the scapegoat at the end, rather than "zomg randum space octopus xD". So at least that bit was streamlined, and I agree with the other reviewers/commenters who appreciated the obvious improvement.

>>64496997
It was a great effort. Maybe you should get off your big, crusty ass and make a better one. Huh? What's that? Thought so.

How is the extended version with the sidestory added back in?
>>
I dont get it--everything is like in the comic book right? So why are people dissing the (probably) only capeshit film that is 95% faithful to the comic book?

>>64501005

fucking backstory is shit, if I'd rewatch Watchmen again I'm skipping those extra scenes.
>>
>>64501005
I didn't dislike the extended version. It definitely slows down the pacing without adding much that was NEEDED, but did provide more context and world-building. I'd be willing to donate an afternoon one day to watch the like 4-hour version that cuts in the Black Freighter cartoon.
>>
>>64501318
Because it's a slavish reproduction of the comic book. It does nothing to justify itself as a movie.
>>

This. I've seen all three versions and prefer the ultimate cut, but if I don't have the time to waste watching the director's cut doesn't detract from anything. You should definitely give all three a shot though and see which best suits you.

More like 65-75%.

Did Ozy still have the assassin swallow a cyanide pill?
>>
>>64500473
Until you consider that Russians would likely think the Americans are using Manhattan to attack them instead of nukes, which would just trigger nuclear retaliation anyways.
>>
>>64501761
Yeah, but he didn't loudly exclaim HE HAS A CYANIDE PILL in the comic. Truth was much better hidden.
>>
>>64497146
well mixed meme.

Bitches gon bitch

>>64497146
George Lucas made Star Wars in a collaborative effort where many of his retarded ideas were hemmed in by properly creative people. Lawrence fucking Kasdan and irving Kirshner MADE the original trilogy by making Empire so goddamn good. Then Lucas pushed the trilogy to the brink of schlock with his fucking Teddy bears and his yes-man hack director phoning in the color-in-the-lines resolution script.

The prequels prove just how little Lucas "made" the original trilogy. We've seen what he makes when he has total creative control.
