^Yawn. TDK was an uneven cartoonish mess. The Joker hammed it up, and Christian Bale provided no kind of counterbalance. A dead Comedian provide more balance to The Watchmen than Batman. The Two-Face turn was botched horribly. The Watchmen on the other hand was brilliantly balanced, and the little touches throughout the film made it easy to immerse yourself in its world.

^I guess i will watch the movie again... Maybe i was just tired the two nights I tried to watch it, but I seem to think if it was worth a $hit I wouldn't of fallen asleep both times.

I'll watch it again.

I'm a big fan of the Doomsday Clock.

I read the book (12 Angry Men)... in High school.

I don't think I've seen the movie.


I'll watch that too.

my problem with the watchmen is that I didn't give a $hit about any of characters.

I like how Dasher's definitive statements easily swayed Doom's malleable mind.

So I've been convinced by another poster that my opinion might be wrong?

Is this the first time in OTC history?

Tough call for me between the two. I haven't seen either in a while so I can't really give a definitive nod to one or the other. I'd probably give the edge to Watchmen at the moment though.

As far as the comic itself is concerned yes. as far as the movie though, no.
