Finally watched Watchmen

Yeah I know I said I wasn't gonna, and I held out as long as humanly possible, but I read the comics again last week, and my curiosity finally got the best of me. What did I think? Well, the following image sums it up nicely, with Batman representing The Dark Knight, and Rorshach representing Zack Snyder's adaptation of Watchmen:

I will say though, that despite all the hate from the fanboys, it really wasn't that bad of a movie. I doubt I'll ever watch it again, but I don't regret seeing it. Three hours and 6 minutes is a tad on the long side for me though. And at time it did seem to drag a little. Still I doubt we'll ever see a better Watchmen movie, as to whether or not it ever should've been made, I still find myself on the "nay" side of the argument, though not as adamantly as some of you.

Those are my thoughts too, and I've seen it twice now. I'm regretting my purchase only because I doubt I'll ever watch it again simply because it is so long. I think that the good performances (Dr. Manhattan, Rorschach) were really good and the bad ones (everyone else) were bad. I think it's the best Watchmen movie we'll ever get, but I don't think it needed to be made.
