Momma Says Spock You OUT.
A friend invited me out to see Watchmen tonight and, in brief, it was a good way to spend a couple of hours on a Friday night. The film hews very closely to the graphiccomicnovelbook (as noted on GeekDad) and is hugely indebted to the work put in by its original creators. I firmly believe [...]
