Picture a Day - Day 102

Yesterday was gorgeous, a beautiful bright blue sky and just hoovering around jacket or no jacket weather.

But after spending last week watching the terror from daycare (not that he really was a terror for us at all, just for him mom some days) I agreed this week we'd finally be able to do what my husband was practically drooling over.
Need a better hint? How about a picture of the ticket while sitting in the seats (I am sure all the other patrons thought I was completely out of my gourd).
I could probably write a long winded review about my own thoughts on the film but there's really no point. I do have an interesting perspective as someone who never read the original but was still open to the idea (IE I wasn't the stereotypical wife/girlfriend being drug along).

All I'll say is I can see where they were going with it but it was kinda like watching someone try to copy a famous painting. They have the basic shape and color pattern but the feel and the layers are all laid bare. So at the end all you really want to do is go back to the source material.

Or like Hollywood taking a beloved work of literature and dumbing it down to what they think the general public's level is.

For any Watchmen or just comic book geek fans though, you got to check out this little video. Rorschach and Wolverine on the same team, that's a terrifying thought.

My hubby and boys are all dying to see this, but w/ Corey's broken leg we can hold off on it for a bit. I have no desire to see this (but then again, being the only girl, I see a lot of these movies - LOL)!!

I can't wait to see this! But the reviews have been up, down, and all over the place .... I guess I will just have to wait and see for myself.

I saw the movie before I read the graphic novel. I did enjoy the movie. I also really liked the book too.
