  • We watched Watchmen is a Q&A with some comic bloggers. I couldn't stop laughing when I read one of their answers to "How did your theater’s crowd like it?"

        I suppose I can thank Watchmen for reminding me why I don’t go to the movies much anymore, namely that they’re filled with irresponsible and rude fuckheads who wouldn’t know good manners if it slashed a broken bottle across their face. Listening to the MST3K-lite repertoire of the ladies behind me; the guy next to me who decided it would be perfectly fine to turn on his BlackBerry and answer text messages during the opening sequence; the father who decided it would be perfectly alright to sit in the front row WITH HIS 10-YEAR-OLD SON (every sight of blood on screen during the film made me wonder how deep this kid’s trauma would be): I hate you all with a deep, pure fire that burns in the center of my heart and will never die out. Goddamn you all to hell.

        OK, I feel better now.

        Most of the crowd, the ones that weren’t texting, hacking up their lungs (I forgot to mention that guy) or making loud, snide comments seemed to be interested in the movie, though they were taken aback by the violence and nudity and laughed at inappropriate times. No clapping at the end.
