Watchmen

Watchmen, on the other hand...

...was pretty damned good.

One of the reasons I wasn't too upset about BSG was that I'd guessed roughly how it was going to end. Another was that it was just the prelude to going out for my main entertainment of the day - The Watchmen. Just saw it in an almost empty cinema (sunday matinee showings of 18 films rarely get big audiences after the first few days), there was very little I disliked, and mostly they were very minor points in a very good film. Even the revised version of the plan at the end worked for me.

And now I'm wondering if the life Dr. M talks about creating in the end lives on a load of colonies and calls itself Humans and Cylons...
