Wow. Even going into that knowing most of the intricate plot details from the internet buzz back when the movie came out, Watchmen surprised me. What an utterly fantastic story. Absolutely worthy of every bit of praise it gets. Just... Fantastic.

My only hang up was with the pirate bits. They just felt like they were getting in the way of the rest of the story, to me.

Anyways, I know the movie isn't supposed to live up to the graphic novel (though it does seem to be a polarizing movie on it's own merits), but I think I'm going to watch it at some point soon anyways, just to know. Also: I obviously can't speak to the rest of the film, but the opening credit sequence seen above is a pretty great, imo.
