The source material is brilliant, but chances are it's going to get ****ed up when it's adapted, especially since Zack Snyder is directing it.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

I just got around to reading the graphic novel and it was amazing. I don't think that you can really "translate" it onto a screen though. A lot will be missing and I am sure I will be disappointed.

This is what I'll do...ive been meaning to read it for a long time but haven't. So i'll see the movie so I have no expectations, and then I'll read it and find its a lot better and be happy twice.

Was really skeptical about this movie until I heard Snyder was making a black freighter animated sideplot to go on the dvd and his cut is 3 hours long. At least this shows he's giving the story the attention and detail it deserves its movie to have.

I hope this is good, I'll agree I'm also worried about the heavy CGI with little story. This guy did 300 right? That was flashy, but less substance. If it comes out that way it'll be a shame because the graphic novel was amazing.

Lol. If Alan Moore isn't going to see it, why should anyone else?

I strongly recommend anyone planning to see this, reads it first.

It's really good and it'd be a shame to let the movie ruin it if it sucks.
