Watchmen

Tomorrow the Ledgers are watching Watchmen.  It's hard to remember the last time I was actually excited about seeing a movie.  

Reviews have been mixed but Wossy seemed to like it.

I loved the graphic novel and the film has a huge weight of expectation around it.  I'm sure the real fanatics will give the film a kicking but I'm going in with my non fanatical eyes and I'll let you know what I thought tomorrow.  

There's a Watchmen game available tonight on the PSN (Playstation Network) which I'm downloading right now, so media saturation is at its peak.

Just to clarify my opinion is my own and not always shared with the other Ledgers as we tend to disagree about most things. 

But I would heartily recommend Watchmen the graphic novel to anyone.  Even if you hate the medium.  It is a rare beast and one that deserves the attention the film is drawing upon it.

Here endeth the lesson for Thursday.
