If watchmen was directed by Nolan and TDK by Snyder than Watchmen might have been better. Both movies had rich source material but Nolan is just better imo. Although I did appreciate the changes to WM's story compared to the comic. The whole alien invasion thing was about as cartoony as it gets, (although fitting for its era).
I didn't think that much of it the first time, I admitt...but then it just got better and better to me...
I have never read the comic though, and I do understand that the comic heads don't think that highly of it, but for someone that wasn't familiar with the Watchmen universe, I think it is genius...excelent movie imo
That's not really fair to compare it to the totality of Batman.
Yes it is. Watchmen is widely considered the best comic ever with only a handful of issues. And I wasn't comparing the entire Batman series, just a select few arcs. Hush/Long Halloween are just as good if not better.
