Just a quick hit from me, paragraphs four and five in particular are right on the money when it comes to the upcoming Watchmen film.
Most of the time, I don't feel the fannish/masochistic need to expose myself to what I have no doubt will be a terrible adaptation of a comic that I love. I haven't seen a single "Alan Moore film" in the cinema since League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. But then again, I can't decide where I fall when it comes to Watchmen. I may very well be tempted after all.
And incidentally, that masochistic urge is still driving me towards the upcoming Star Trek film, despite my better judgment.
