Contemplating Watchmen

On Monday night, thanks to the help of a friend whom I shall refer to as D., Nomi and I had a chance to see a preview of the film Watchmen, which opens tomorrow. Because I had a chance to see the movie early, I ended up writing a review for SF Scope, one of the premier websites for news of the speculative fiction fields. (SF Scope is run by my friend Ian Randal Strock, and has an RSS feed on LiveJournal at sf_scope.)

My review is posted as Contemplating Watchmen for anyone who wishes to read it.

I haven't seen it yet, but I did find this line from the Chicago Tribune's review interesting: and his squeeze Silk Spectre II, played by Malin Akerman, possibly the worst actress in Hollywood at the moment. In fact, in the Tribune's daily news e-mail, they headlined the review: "'WORST ACTRESS IN HOLLYWOOD'?"

I disagree. Akerman was fine in the role.

That's part of the tragedy of the film. There's a lot of good stuff in it. But it just doesn't work in the end.
Right, I must remember to read that once I see the movie tomorrow.
