The comic book artist Jason did a post on his blog recently about the movie adaptation of Watchmen. He was talking about how the title sequence seemed to have been the only part of the movie where the director Zack Snyder showed real imagination. I decided to revisit the sequence to see what Jason was talking about since I have not seen Watchmen since it was in the theaters.
I think the re-imaging of history within the world of Watchmen, coupling with the Bob Dylan soundtrack, created the perfect set-up for the main storyline. I will have to go back and revisit the movie as a whole. It has also been quite a long time since I have read the Alan Moore/ Dave Gibbons graphic novels. I remember being quite impressed by the way the story was told. I will have to pick it up again to see if it holds up to the memory that I have of it in my mind.
