I was really pumped to see this movie. I loved the GN. And when the title sequences came on, it was really something special. I mean, they were incredibly well done. Anyway…
Here’s what I learned… don’t go see a movie adaptation of a book you love, and I mean really love, because it’s just going to ruin the original experience for you. It’s fine to read Harry Potter, then go see Harry Potter, because, at least for me, it’s just a story, not something I am attached to.
I was looking forward to getting my hands on John Huston’s “Wise Blood”, but now I think I am going to skip it, only because the book really is my favorite thing of all time.
did this really need its own thread? i mean….we have +5 Watchmen threads already……
We also have +100000000000 threads polling ourselves for top ten lists, and everyone jumps into those like it’s a pit full of money. And some of the lists are so absent of joy it’s really hard to believe anyone actually thinks they are the ten best movies.
I could change the title of the thread to “Don’t go see the movie adaptation of a book you really like”, but
THE TITLE SEQUENCE WAS UNBELIEVABLE, the rest of the movie just happened to be terrible.
But, I guess title sequences aren’t really important in movies… just being able to name movies people around us haven’t heard of is.
the poll threads all have different contexts, most of the watchmen threads dont. they were created as general points of discussion. since your own post only deals with title sequences for 2/7 of the lines, i naturally assumed it was the same thing again…..
I tend to have bad forum manners.
I didn’t like or hate this movie enough to even talk about it, don’t know why I bothered (which is probably why I didn’t bother to search for a thread).
no worries, its simply good practice though to keep topics contained whenever possible.
