Alan Moore on ‘Watchmen’

Alan Moore on ‘Watchmen’

Alan MooreSo if you’re a comic book fan, it’s no surprise that Alan Moore is considered by many to the one of the “greats” of genre. And if you know that, you also know that he’s not a big fan of any of the adaptations of his comic work to the big screen. ‘From Hell’, ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’, ‘V for Vendetta’ all fell short in his eyes and he has been vocal about his displeasure with each of them. Now, with Zack Snyder adapting his arguably most famous piece, ‘Watchmen’, the world is equally excited/tense about how well Snyder will do adapting the piece. They’re also a little curious about what Moore’ll think about it all. Will this be the film that changes his opinion?

More ‘G.I. Joe’ Details

New details have emerged regarding the writing team and the story direction for the upcoming adaptation of 80s television cartoon, ‘G.I. Joe.’ The film’s executive producer, Brian Goldner (who is also the COO of Hasbro), recently spoke with MTV regarding the upcoming feature. You can read it here.

Personally, I couldn’t be more uninterested in this flick. G.I. Joe doesn’t carry the nostalgia for me that Transformers does. I think the fantastical excitement of seeing giant robots coming to life is more interesting than watching a strategic army unit come to life. I suppose it’s because I’ve seen a lot of Van Damme movies in my past and have become desensitized to excitement towards army films. And add to that the uninspiring casting of Dennis Quaid and Marlon Wayans (WTF?!), amongst others, this film could be canned tomorrow and I’ll be no worse for the wear. But I know there are those out there who are interested, so here you go on this slow news day. When’s summer?
