[EPIC Movie #1] Watchmen in Glorious IMAX

Last night I went with my brother-in-law to see the comic-based movie "Watchmen". I'm slowly reading the comic now, but may take away as I'm not exactly the biggest reader(unless it's gaming related).

I'm not going to make this a long ass post, so I'll just go ahead and get this out now: Watchmen is an EPIC movie. It may not be as EPIC as The Dark Knight was (with or without the touch of IMAX), but I will say that Watchmen is a beautiful, awe-inspiring action/drama movie, of course with the added bonus of IMAX.

Everything from the acting to the music was outstanding. Don't even get me started in the special effects department. Wow. Absolutely amazing. Some of the best special effects I've seen in any movie in the last 10 years, bar none. Not to mention the amount of blood/gore they put into the movie, wow. Over two and a half hours of EPICness.

Anyone who hasn't seen it yet(you know who you are) needs to go see Watchmen in IMAX as soon as the theaters open. Do NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT see the movie in a regular theater. Just like The Dark Knight, Watchmen is meant to be seen in IMAX. Can't be seen any other way. Unless it's on Blu-Ray of course.

I just hope when the Oscars come around again, Watchmen gets the attention it deserves. The actor who portrayed the biggest badass around, Rorschach, deserves to be nominated for Best Supporting Actor, if not Best Actor. But then again, way too early to tell, but I think he at least deserves to be nominated. Definitely my favorite of the Watchmen.

Anyways, this post has gotten bigger than I wanted it to get. Now go see it!

The fact that the story was center here really makes the movie loved or hated by so many.
I really think the fact that the Director took chances with making the movie more real that the cartoon of most Super hero movies (and yes, I LOVED 300 by the way) really shows he is visionary enough to know what it takes to make a real "Heroic" movie.
