The book was so well planned, etc.

Definitely a 10 on Solomon's enhancer's scale; it was full of plot twists, symbolism, irony etc.

I bet if I reread it, it'd be even better.

Why do you think the movie will suck? It might just suprise you...

From what I see, the costumes look corny.

Judging from the trailers, I don't like the visionary direction.

Or Rorschach's voice.

But back to the book.

I used watchmen to convince one of my friends that comics could be good reads.

For that reason, I like it.

It also happens to be one of the best works of fiction around, period.

for that reason, I love it.

I won't read it, but I'll watch the movie.

It won't. I am going to see the movie, but it's not going to compare unless he follows the book verbatum. Alan Moore did too much stuff in that book that couldn't be done on film. The issue dubbed fearful symmetry for instance. If you look at the panels in that issue, they are the exact same if you read the story from start to finish or finish to start. Plus, the pirate story that read parallel to the actual story. That was cut from the film. It was a symbolic part of the story. The giant squid...cut from the film.

Regardless, I do think it will be good. It just won't be the book, good.

Oh and the costumes are supposed to look crappy. That was sort of the joke of the Watchmen. It was the campy superheroes meets the real world.
