THE NEXT BIG THING
Okay, so my 17 year old son gives me this big comic book called The Watchmen. He called it a “graphic novel” but it was nothing more than a really long comic book.
So I read it and was not impressed. The story started strong but couldn’t follow through in the end. It reminded me of the Matrix movies. The first one was great, but what made it great got lost in the sequels along the way until, but the time the series ended, it deserved to die.
So I read The Watchmen and I put it down.
Then I found this on Youtube:
I am excited. It looks just like the comic book – excuse me, “graphic novel” – with just enough differences of the right kind to give me hope that the director (the same guy who directed 300) can pull it off.
I cannot wait.
