  • Mood:

My view from the back of the theater.

To the people who walked out of The Watchmen during a certain R-rated moment,

You had no difficulty watching a brutal attempted rape scene or war violence or the murder of a pregnant woman but when two individuals enact a consensual sex scene--that's where you drawn the line?

Really?

Sincerely,

Maddened in Michigan.



(A part of me wants to believe that Snyder himself created such exploitative scenes to hold up an ink blot to the audiences of the world but even I can't give him that much credit after having spent an amount of time longer than the film to discuss the movie's failings in light of the book after leaving the theater.)
