Watching Reviews

The Man Who Brought You 300, Brings The Watchmen

Based on one of the most revered comics of all time, The Watchmen, the film of the same name hits theatres Friday and the reviews, thus far, have been mostly unkind. The earlies, already aggregated at Metacritic, give The Watchmen an average approval rating of 44 percent.

It's, like I said, early, so there may be hope for a critical reversal but based on Zach Snyder's other films, 300 and Dawn of the Dead, he doesn't seem to direct movies that people paid to review like.

As long as the Ottawa Senators don't have a Watchmen-inspired pre-game ceremony.

I'll stop now. But really, it's the gift that keeps on giving.

Actually I read yesterday that there's a 300 sequel in the works that Snyder intends to direct: more inspiration for the Senators.
