|Subject: Watchmen - The Movie
|Having both just recently finished reading the book, both Elizabeth and Myself have been looking forward to seeing the Watchmen movie. I found the movie to be an incredibly enjoyable experience, but as is often the case, the movie fell short of the novel. Of course in this instance that had to be expected. Watchmen was the only graphic novel to appear on Time's 2005 list of "the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present” and there are many devices which can be used in it's authored medium that cannot be readily transferred to film. In general the casting was amazing the the musical score added a lot to the comics story.
All things being equal, I found 10 items which I thought the movie did poor justice to the novel.
