    So i just watched Watchmen again and im confused. If Zack Snyder can do such a great job with the action scenes, tone, and beautiful visuals why is it his DC movies arent up to par? Watchmen>>>>

    Watchmen was almost verbatim to the graphic novel. It was essentially a storyboard already drafted for him. All he had to do was follow the script. Watchmen is hard to fuck up, all they did was change the ending.

    It's not just that the ending was changed on the surface. It's entire point and purpose is completely different than that of the GN's ending. As are a lot of the character beats and motivations.

    A lot of the thematics and key parts of the GN's narrative in general were changed, removed or completely misinterpreted by Snyder's only faithful on the surface level adaptation.

    This is why so many fans of the book completely hated it. I don't have time to break down the specifics but there are many articles or internet posts on comic book forums that take the film to task accordingly.

    Watchmen adaptation was only really good to people who didn't know the story beforehand or only understood it on an extremely superficial level.

    It's partly understandable because Watchmen's storytelling only truly works the way it does because of how that form of narrative execution was tailor made for the comic book format.

    What the movie should've done was adapt the main themes and truly reinterpret them for a cinematic storytelling format. Not try to ape comic book storytelling in a medium not really built to serve it. Tell the story in a way that could only be told only with the film medium. Spiritually that would've been a more faithful approach. In that sense Terry Gilliam had the right idea.

    Dayum @Broddie Watchmen "sucked" and so did Avengers ? LOLOLOLOL bro are there any movies you actually like ?? Watchmen was DOPE AF. They took out the scene with Rorschach too before the little girl but I think some of those scenes were unnecessary.

    manigga do you know who you are talking to ? dont try...

    What do you mean by "Western Life" exactly?
    You know what i mean
    Some countries in Africa are importing so
    Much, they are losing their culture because people prefer the products popular in the West from clothing to food to music to etc

    sure, the keyboard militant who has never been there sees it better, as you were Zimbabwean expert...
