Watchmen the movie

I always wanted to make the Watchmen movie. Probably I knew all along that the chances of me becoming a film director and getting to direct Watchmen were slim, but I always hoped it would stay in development until I grew up and went to Hollywood. But someone beat me to it, and now it’s about to come out and I feel, I don’t know, that it shouldn’t have been a movie at all. Now whenever anyone talks about Watchmen, they’ll talk about ‘the blockbuster movie’, and not the book, and the movie will be the first thing many people think of when Watchmen is mentioned. I’m excited to see the movie, I truly am, but…the awesomely cool and clever graphic novel is now The Movie, and it probably will eclipse the book, and I’m kinda sad about that.
