Its actually worse than Episode I,I, III, because the original creator in this instance sees it as a story that is over and done with. Even if this ends up being good, it is a slap in Alan Moore’s face.

Since when did DC ever care what Alan Moore thought? DC owns Watchmen through and through and they will squeeze as much as they can out of this property. However, if you look at it from a creator standpoint, imagine the thought of being able to work on the Watchmen, it would be a dream project to work on.

OK, I’m going to hate myself if it turns out to be good and I end up buying it.

Am I alone in thinking the movie was better than the book? I understand it’s importance and its insightfulness during the era, but the book is goofy at the end and slightly heavy handed whereas the movie had tits.

I’m in disagreement. Many here have heard my ravings against the changed ending but I’ll go once more.
Moore’s point was to set a scenario where the only way man could unite and stop warring was to join forces against a common enemy, an enemy not of our world and completely alien in every way from us. The lie being that in fact we had to be tricked into this. by changing the story and making it man against man, a war against something supernatural, but very much of our world and our creation I think the people who wrote the screenplay were giving the human race too much credit. They boned the story and screwed the point moore was trying to make… and thus you have a story with it’s soul ripped out and something moore wants no part of… again…

I agree with Shane.

I agree with Alan Moore.
