    I read that the comic is better but it looks like a good action flick.

    Probably going to see it next week. I usually like reading spoilers first so I know whether or not to go see it/wait for DVD.

    My buddies went yesterday. They said it was pretty fun and pretty well done and definitely worth seeing in the theaters.

    Ill go see it but after all of the hardcore fans are done. I have no desire to listen to them mention each little part that does not fall directly in line with a graphic novel that took 12 months to get the story completed.

    I saw it this past weekend. My consensus...meh. It was alright, but you probably won't enjoy it much if you haven't read the graphic novel. If you're thinking it's a straight action flick, you're going to be disappointed. I mean there is some good action in it, but it's pushing three hours and a lot of it's dialog. I have read the graphic novel and I personally thought it was a pretty good visual adaption, but it wasn't quite able to capture some of the elements that made the book so captivating, so if you're not familiar with the book at all, then you'll probably find it boring.

    Oh, and also there are COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF FULL FRONTAL MALE NUDITY IN THIS.

    So basically, the ladies on this forum and Injen will probably love it, but the rest of you might want to skip it... :D

    What??? They actually show dicks in it? I thought they couldn't show dicks in R rated movies? Or you just talking like waist up? Or is it full, in your face dong?

    Its Dr. Manhattan's man log. It is rather unpleasant, and kind of took away from the movie. There was no reason to see the blue dong. And frankly, if I was fighting crime, I would not have my shit flapping. Dangerous.

    Movie has its good parts though. I personally loved the rawshack(I cant remember how to spell it) character. Would have been better if there was more Robert Downing Jr.

    No, it's full-on dong shots. I mean, they don't do close-ups of it or anything, but dude is just standing there, naked. To be fair though, the guy in question is the blue radioactive guy, so it's not like it's just some random person standing around with his cock hanging out.

    And yeah, you can show cock in R-rated movies. I can think of plenty that have...Schindler's List, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Eastern Promises, Scary Movie, etc. It's when you've got erect cock entering a vajayjay that it crosses into porn territory...

    I didn't really think it was that noticeable. Like I said, it's not like they did any close-ups at all. It didn't really bother me, and it was true to the graphic novel, so meh...

    Robert Downey Jr.? :huh:

    Oh no, I wasn't ripping you for the spelling, I'm saying he wasn't in the movie, lol. Are you talking about the guy who played the Comedian? I think it was this guy: Jeffrey Dean Morgan

    He does look a lot like RDJ with a mustache though...

    Yeah, at one point I was like "I bet they wanted Robert Downey for that role".

    And yes, non stop blue cock the whole way through. Kind of annoying but I bet its some kind of subconcious mind trick of some kind. It's hilarious that he busts out his speedo to go to war too.

    And MAJOR ass kickings throughout the first half of the movie, right at the start this guy gets a shit kicking that is off the scale and sets a new standard for foot-to-assmanship.

    Yeah, I doubt that would ever happen though, since RDJ is contracted to play Iron Man (Marvel Comics versus DC Comics). I thought the dude that played in the movie was really good though...

    Yeah, that's one of the problems with this movie. Even at almost 3 hours, they had to cut out a bunch of little stuff that would have helped people make sense of it. The amount of clothing he wears correlates with his increasing feelings of detachment towards humanity. Right after his accident he has a leotard-looking suit, then later switches to briefs, then later just goes nude...

    Yeah, I definitely thought that dude was perfect for the Comedian. It sucks when the same actors keep being in movies over and over... cough* seth rogan*cough*
    Yeah, kinda thought there had to be a reason for all the "dicking" around...
    I'll be checking out the DVD which I'm sure will be packed with deleted scenes.
    Very strange but awesome movie.

    Yeah, they're going to do an extended cut on DVD, and I think it will probably make a lot of things more clearer...

    Yes. the dvd is gonna have an extra 18 minutes or so I think.

    I enjoyed the movie. The dong shots were not a highlight by any means, but they were just part of the movie. And honestly if you could fight crime and kick major ass naked, why wouldnt you? Its one thing to get your ass kicked by a blue guy, but getting your ass kicked by a naked blue guy... i mean it just makes it all the worse.

    agreed when it comes to actors being cast far to much for character roles. Its just sad that certain actors can only play one character.. It doesnt matter though cookie cutter movies blow anyway.
