Watchmen

So who is going to see this? Just got tickets for the IMAX show on Saturday. I'm predicting that this will be better than The Dark Knight which seems a bit overrated to me.

It's one of my favorite books ever and everything I've seen about the movie looks pretty good. I think I'm going to see it Sunday or Monday.

My students are all very into this, so I'll probably see it sometime so I can find out what the hell they're so crazy about.

It is the Oscars for geeks and nerds.

Okay, so this is an award given out yearly. Yet, in previous years, they have not made IMAX movies out of said award winners, and nobody has given a rat's rear end about them. Something must be different about this movie.
