I enjoyed those two arcs, but putting them on the watchman's level is too far for me.

those who have read watchmen. how was the comic different than the movie? I though the movie was very similar to the graphic novel but for some reason fans hated the movie yet loved the comic.

Hush and Long Halloween are very entertaining on a superficial level, but Watchmen goes a little deeper down the rabbit hole. Also if you were going to use Batman arcs I wouldn't really use Hush, I think The Dark Knight Returns, and Batman Year One would be better examples.

I have read the comic book and the movie is a perfect adaptation from it. as good as it can be. so theres no reason for fans to freak out, really. In my opinion, both movies are excellent and not the typical popcorn shitty blockbuster we often watch nowadays.

I just prefer the Batman stories to Watchmen, and yes, you're right, I had 4-5 in mind including the two you listed. Just didn't list them because I was in a rush.

The tone in Watchmen shifts too often for me to consider it the better of the two movies. Some of the music choices were ridiculous. For example, Ride of the Valkyries during the Vietnam flashback.

That glory hallelujah song during the sex scene was awkward.

I thought Watchmen sucked while the Dark Knight was great. Watchmen was pretty much unwatchable to me.

If people knew the lyrics to the song, they would know the song was very appropriate for a sex scene.
