In answer to Drifter's question, apparently his heart is replaced by a mechanical one and he has to keep on electrocuting himself to keep it going.

Makes sense really.

And as you can see from this promotional photograph, the Watchmen film is going to be shit.

What about the photo makes you think that? I'm reserving all judgement until the credits roll, but I was wondering if you had some profound yet amusing insight. And with some allusion to a past sexual encounter.

Well the thing about all the Watchmen is that they're meant to be looking all flawed and slightly worn out by this point in time. The point made about her dressing as a pin up is well made, but she shouldn't look so perfect whilst she does it. She should look slightly worn like Geri Halliwell. The whole thing looks like just another superhero film, if the fallible nature of these people isn't right at the centre of the film, if it isn't incorporated into the design at a deep level, then the whole film is going to fall on its arse.

It's could be a perfectly fine super hero movie, but if its not going to cleave to its source material better than this then they might as well push on and make the Justice League movie where there isn't such delicate source materials to deal with.

It's the same as V for Vendetta. The comic book is about how anarchy is about is better than fascism and lays the blame for injustice at the feet of the general population. The film is about a freedom fighter and portrays a population that have been tricked by an incredibly clever ruse by the facists into voting for them and who are really itching for freedom, justice etc. One of these ideas is clever, and hard to work with,the other facile and easy to swallow. Because of this the film will never be great and critics will continue to use the phrase "comic book movie" to describe something bubble gum and throwaway.

These are literally incredible works that they're dealing with, the best examples of a whole art form, so seminal they forced people to take the form seriously, but movies based on them keep on being made that conform to the conventions they broke.
