M. and I hit the Mazza Galleria yesterday, met up with a cohort, and caught what has to be one of the last showings of Watchmen. And I'm glad I saw it on the big screen, to be sure. I think they did a good job of adapting the material to the big screen, and crammed in a surprising amount of movie into the running time. Plus, the pacing made the whole thing feel shorter, which was a welcome treat. I'm not sure how well I could have followed it not having read the book, though. The casting was great, as well, especially Rorschach and Ozymandias. Good stuff all around.
New trailers: * Crank: High Voltage - Man. I've always been an advocate of giving the people what they want, and this trailer looked like a lot of fun. And I haven't even seen the first one! Mr. Statham knows his audience. * Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - More and bigger! Plus, I think I saw Ravage. * Terminator Salvation - Holy cats. It's a big budget summer action movie avalanche. Can't wait. And man, even the cast looks good. * X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Many superheroes! Much shirtless fighting! * The Hangover - Wow.
