Thank you for that. I'm so tired of guys who are less then secure in their own manhood complaining about DrMs junk. If your a hetro guy and your that focused on another dudes junk, you might have some issues. Now you understand how most women feel about all the boobs that show up in movies, usualy for no reason at all. Yeah dude was naked, get over it.

I mainly mentioned it because I thought it was funny. I'm well aware of the reasoning behind it, and I was glad that they left it in, even if it did seem to be a lot more prominent than in the comics.
But come on, how many times can you legitimately say "Big blue dong" in your life? Gotta make the most of it while you can

OMFinG, that's too funny. Why can I still see it happening though.

That's exactly what I posted, except with a slow, clunky flash based interface ;-)

I made it a spoiler because the video (albeit teasingly) gives away some of the plot, and also it's funnier if nobody expects it (like in a spoiler ) but no worries. The page you linked has more info about the author and whatnot, which is cool

Hehe, whoops... thank you for the edit! I completely didn't see that clue earlier... *smacks forehead*


And very nice on the Saturday Morning Watchmen! Very funny stuff! Found that about 10 min. before I went to see the Thursday night midnight opening showing and laughed the whole way there.

I seem to remember reading that Zack Snyder made a deliberate choice in upping the violence quota because the studio wanted a low certification. By adding lots and lots of violence he avoided the 'well if you just cut these 3 major scenes we'll give it a 12 certificate' so he could give his vision of Watchmen.

This.

I was always hoping that at some point in time there would be a movie which would make men feel insecure about themselves in a way that a lot of movies tend to make women feel insecure about themselves because of the way that the female body is portrayed in contemporary film. I am aware that this is not the only movie to have done this, but this is certainly the first one that has been hyped so much and will be widely watched.
