I watched Watchmen

Went to see it with real-life buddy Andy today. I really liked it. They got the look and feel of the comics down really well, and it was really faithful to the story (except for a major change to the ending, which I won't go into). While it's long (nearly three hours), the pacing of the story was pretty tight. The acting was good, especially on the part of Jackie Earle Haley, who was excellent as Rorschach. The action sequences and the special effects were also very well done. I'd recommend it.

By the way, if you don't know much about the story, this is not a superhero movie you want to take your kids to see. There's a lot of very intense, graphic violence and quite a bit of nudity.

Update: Heh.
