However the content was dull. Your choice of material seemed to me to be hackneyed. If the intent of the piece was to entertain it fell short of watching the movie. Anyone, no, just about everyone who watched that movie garnered messages and meaning behind the film itself. It was so chock full of symbolism and S/f speculation that it would be difficult not to.
So basically, it seems to me that what you have done is tie in this movie, hence Hollywood, into a warning message about TPTB and their plans to destroy the world. But, if the movie itself did that then why repeat what the movie was messaging?
You offer no hopeful or helpful message to counter the doom porn of the movie itself. And the references you use to tie in the PTB are sketchy at best.
All which leads to placing the film in a category of "Just plain Doom Porn"
I am starring and flagging everything. "Watchmen" was more than a comic and eventually movie, no matter my issues with the ending.
I think that it should be required reading for all students studying cold war history in order to get a glimpse into just how things were in the '80's...it wasn't as cool as Mtv made it out to be.
And yes, Ozymandius and Dr. Manhattan were dicks. But like they said, a few thousand compared to a few billion lives and the horrific consequences of all out nuclear war?
They could have had the "alien" land somewhere not so populated I guess...
