Watchmen Trailer!!!

"The world will look up and shout, 'save us'; and I will whisper, no."

OMFG. I am going APE SHIT crazy on the released Watchmen trailer...I've just watched it, er, a good fifteen times (and after this post, it'll be sixteen). It's funny how I actually believed I figured The Watchmen all out, yet found even MORE intricacies laid out by Moore from watching the trailer (though Moore had nothing to do with the movie, the following tidbit was kept true from the book, shown in the trailer). What did I discover? The subtle changes of Rorschach's mask (of which my friend discovered first) that I failed to investigate during my reading . Yeah, and now I've figured out a whole bunch of stuff, or at least, now I've got definite proof for some of the theories my friend and I have discussed. I'm dying to lay it all out on my blog...but...that would set me on a whole rampage through all the book's great quirks and themes, and I'm just not up for passionate discourse on an empty stomach.

Watchmen tends to encourage long passionate discourses, doesn't it? It is truly a comic book worth thinking about. Now I've gotta read V for Vendetta.
I'm gonna look into getting a programme called pigeon to chat with you... we will see...
Great art, by the way :)
