I went to the Watchmen movie this weekend with Nic. Well, from what I read in the graphic novel, I would say that it followed about 98% exactly. That was at about the point of 1/2 of the way through. Although the movie was a little hoakie, I enjoyed the story. There was alot of action and fun, but there was just one thing that irritated me more than anything else. That being the charicter Dr. Manhatten. In the graphic novel they state that he dislikes wearing clothing so he is constantly nekid. I didn’t have a problem with this and in the graphic novel there is only about 3 frames where there is a groin view of him. In the movie there was one scene alone that had 5 BIG BLUE PENIS’. This I find irritating because it was unneeded. I don’t understand this at all. In American Pie 2 Stiffler runs around waving a big blue dildo and shouts about it. This was funny and had a point. In the Watchmen, this served no purpose other than to make the audience uncomfortable. This seems like there was either the idea that there was a hugely gay director or they thought this would be a perfect way to get male full frontal nudity as an acceptable and standard practice in the cinema. The thing with full frontal female nudity, their sexual organs other than breasts are not on the outside of the body. Unless your a huge pervert that spends too much time looking, analizing and digitaly enhancing, you cannot see what they have. Then there is the issue of the poor bastard that had to spend hundreds of hours making a digial penis for him to wear. This seems just simply excessive and retarded. Anyways, this is just my idea of how stupid this is.
