That's why context matters, the message he left made no sense what so ever.

Godilla, which one? Spider man, which one? It, which one? never heard of dark materials, is that good? Willow the series... they made a series about willow, loved that movie as a kid.


Oh yeah, I would totally watch Willow the series.


You might know "His Dark Materials" from earlier attempt to bring it on big screen, "Golden Compass". It was quite awful. The books were very good, but weird. It's bit like Narnia turned inside out. In place of Lewis' Christian message, there is Pullman's vicious attack on religion and especially Catholic Church.

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.
instead of deserting the leaders who had lied to them, they would protest that they had known all along that the statement was a lie and would admire the leaders for their superior tactical cleverness.

I don't know the ending to The Last Battle seems to suggest a rather petty deity prone to murdering his child followers just to spite someone who'd chosen another path

As for this, looks shaky and has a hint of modern commentary done hamfisted

… this looks much better than I expected? I'm genuinely quite shocked.

Updating the setting and timeframe is bold. Plenty of ways it can still fail, but that's the only way it might succeed.

So this is a sequel to the comics right? If I just show my wife the movie again and say "This except instead of framing doctor manhattan he fakes an alien invasion". It will be enough of a prequel without making her read the graphic novel?

I think it is a follow up to the movie but not 100% on that.

Amidst the mists and coldest frosts he thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts.

Another new Watchmen trailer. Wouldn't sure if I should make a whole new thread or just revive the previous thread about this upcoming series so tossed a coin and revived ye olde thread. Trailer shows more of the new characters and the conflict between law enforcement and the Rorschach cult(?). Still not sure if this a follow up to the comic or to the movie though.

I did like the pod bit - 'do you know why you are here?'
'A nun kicked down my door hit me and shoved me in the boot of her car'
......'correct'

you can fill your trailer full of ominous doom klaxons, but it won't hide it's HBO doing a CW tribute act (with extra potty mouthing and punching)*

*todays downer on capes brought to you by Gotham S5, full of everything I hate about the Bat Mythos...
