I kinda played him out with the Dark Knight (I took my girl to see it first because he had to watch his kids on opening day...and ended up seeing it with him like after I had already seen it twice.). He's been giving me the guilt trip about ever since so I promised that I'd see Watchmen with him first like we usually do.
Anyways...So the day in question, cuzo decides to go see it early because he sensed a crowd. After all, Watchmen has had some of the best PR a movie has gotten in a grip. And after "Dark Knight" people are hungry to see another mature super hero flick.So we go in and sit down and right after us a couple and their 3 Adolescent ass kids sit right in front of us. So I'm like "FUCK! Don't these muh sukkas know this is an R movie!" Not really thinking it from a point of being responsible as much as thinking I don't want these lil muh sukkas to fuck up the movie for me. So to avoid that hassle cuzo and I go to the other side...And I dunno if we stepped on a trigger for a trap door or somthing but as soon as we sat down the theater turned into a damned day care center. I'm talking at least a good 15-20 kids all under 8 years of age.
Kids running down the aisles
Standing up in seats
Eating popcorn next to a megaphone and ish.
A pair of em sat right behind me and didn't quite get the concept of whispering. Lil muh sukkas just because you speak extra breathy doesn't make it a whisper!!! You would think dudes vocal chords were hooked up to some Rockford Fosgate 8x9s. I'm in the D though...and the fact that they were brought up in R rated flick in the first place probably means that the parents ain't got it together their damn selves...So instead of voicing my opinions I shoot em a look every now and then. Trying to tell them to "shut the hell" up through the power of telekenesis and ish.
So as the movie progress it becomes EXTREMELY obvious that Watchmen is FAR from a movie for kids. And boy did I get a kick out of. There is like a 5 minute sex scene in the flick. Just coincidently the noisy kids behind me got silent as fuck when it started going down. In fact all the kids got pretty silent. One of the kids running up in the aisles stopped mid stride. A child on the other side asked loudly "What are they doing?" And me...I laughed...LOUDLY... the entire time. Basically, my middle finger to all those parents who take their kids out to R rated flicks and eff it up for the rest of us. That's what y'all get.
As for the cats wondering how the movie is. Here's what I have to say...
- It's not the traditional superhero flick...so if you're expecting that...chances are you'll be disappointed.
- It's an extremely dark movie
- It's long (almost 3 hours)
- It's an experience: very lush visuals, it comes off more like a book than a movie
- A pretty nice soundtrack.
- I liked it.
