Damon Lindelof probably. In fairness a lot of people were disappointed with Snyder's adaptation and thought a better version would be as an HBO miniseries (even the biggest fans of Snyder's Watchmen will admit it tries to stuff way too much plot into a single movie no matter which cut of it you watch.) When I was first reading about this tv version that's what it was supposed to be. But then Lindelof had to Lindelof and here we are now.

Hopefully this torpedoes his career. I was watching Prometheus the other day and it's so fucking beautiful and the cast is so great but the Lindelof's script is such shit that it drags the movie down. Ugh. Hack writer.

Nobody. I didn't ask for Deadwood or LOST either but it didn't stop them from making the greatest TV shows in existence.
You guys need to stop acting like pic related and your eyes out every time you see something you don't want, go read the comic, or watch the movie if Watchmen is so sacred for you, though it sure as shit isn't to the people who own the comic since they keep shitting out prequels and sequels for it. And I can say for a fact the HBO miniseries will be better than any of the comic book sequels to the original Watchmen comic.

in the 80s moore, pat mills and a whole bunch of other british writers did stories with absurd fascism to make fun of tatcher.

ironically enough, these characters, like marshal law, judge dredd and the ones in watchmen, are the fan favorites.

moore was pretty honest at approaching these characters in watchmen, theyre all heroes of their own journey and he, at least, allow the reader to come out with their own conclusions.

> THAT SAID:

moore was dishonest woth ozymandias. ozymandias was an annoying faggot because he was so right that you simply could not show him as what he was: a chad mother fucker.

my beef with watchmen was moore's inability to apply metaphysics to a material god.

a direction that wasn't explored was the implications of Dr. Manhattan sharing his divinity with mankind rather than mankind's continuance of non-transcendence his lamentation of eternal loneliness. Of course, I'm not surprised as very few writers think transcendentally of the human condition and are more preoccupied with critique. At best they can just produce material gods (e.g. Superman) rather than actual metaphysical God-men for which we could aspire to.

Nobody in Watchmen is really 100% one or the other. He and Ozymandias both thought they were doing the moral thing.

well, he did that on miracleman.

he stretch the whole god thing and the character literally turn the world into a paradise and moore explore some creepy shit like miraclemen young daughter - young like infant like, like four, five years old daughter - fucking.

nothing graphic but also not 'implicity', she basically tells the father she has a sex life, because she is also god like and smart and shit.

but image that kind of content TODAY. yeah.

>>114902812

rorschach was right in a small scale, ozymandias was looking at the big picture and buying time to mankind.

manhattan was a hypocrite faggot who dump his wife at the second the lay his eyes on a younger woman and acts like he is above something.

the thing is: moore was honest enough to offer these perspectives and the book itself is a rorschach test.

manhattan fans are niihilistic faggots, ozymandias fans understand the concept of getting dirty to get shit done.

ironically enough, the star of the trailer is don mother fucking jonhson.

I have split feelings. I love the comic and I honestly enjoyed the film in spite of its flaws. I thought the origin comics were pretty crap, except for Ozymandias', which was unexpectedly really good.

I know none of this newer Watchmen stuff has Alan Moore's blessing, but there was a recent Watchmen comic that got a ton of critical acclaim, though I haven't read it.

I doubt I'll watch this just because there's been so many shitty superhero shows especially from DC, but I'll have to wait and see how they do on this. Ozymandias, Rorschach, and Dr. Manhattan are all such good characters that I don't really blame them for wanting to capitalize on them and the Watchmen universe.

The show I'd really be interested in would be a "mature" cartoon of Transmetropolitan, though I love that comic so much that the stakes would be really high and if they fucked it up I'd be miserable. Green Arrow was one of my favorite superheroes growing up, but after seeing Arrow I can't stand the character.

Planetary (Warren Ellis) is the only thing that comes to mind that is Post-Modern deconstruction done right. Rather than deconstruct to be "edgy & shocking", it deconstructs out of sincere curiosity to learn and grow; to make better things and to transcend ourselves.

Sadly, much of the "intellectually" class has been subverted out of metaphysics and can only grasp onto material transcendence (technology, biology, physical world stuff etc.). Gaiman has probably the best grasp of metaphysics out of all the writers, but is more preoccupied with the interplay of the metaphysical world rather than transcending the human condition.

This type of combination is rare today as most writers lack a spiritual understanding and drive (atheist materialists) and are overwhelmingly leftist (cynical). It leads to most "art" being just nihilisticly pessimistic and deconstructive since they need to prove their only true axiom: all things are fundamentally meaningless. Sad really, because it crushes the divine spark in humanity that believes in transcendent things.
>>
>>114907848
true. i think grant morrison and his superman with frank quitely try to capture some of the innocence and optimism was well.

but the 2000s is pure edgy comics, ellis did also a nice comic book with fell, with ben templesmith, but he has his share of edgy pseudo shit as well - but yes, planetary seems to be something done with love - never read.

Why do people act like the comic wasn’t already a bunch of PC liberal propaganda? Rorschach was the nuts one, you can tell because he reads the RIGHT WING newspaper. Look at these lesbian cabbies.

>>
>>114907848
Just to add, I do think materialism will inevitably lead back to spiritualism. We see this from materialist concepts that look remarkably similar to metaphysical ones: multiverses, simulation theory, virtual reality, etc. So if say infinite realities can exist, any there are clearly demonstrable "hellish" realities (worlds, simulations, games, whatever) then that means there are opposite good realities. If there is a spectrum, then there must be absolute ends to that spectrum: the best world and the worst world. So humanity will inevitably pursue finding what existence constitutes this heavenly world heavenly and what makes a hellish world hellish.

>>114908884
