Saw the Animated Movie.

Brilliant.
Awesome thanks
Thanks for the heads up.
Thanks for posting. Not for the deal, but for reminding me of Love Like Blood, a song I haven't heard for donkeys years!

Saw the Animated Movie.Brilliant.

According to the article below, the French solution to disputes about which colour scheme is best was to publish it in black and white...

Doesn't surprise me as it's Alan Moore.

What is good writing for a comic doesn't always translate well to the big screen and he translates worse than most.

Its more like they added unnecessary things that didn't happen, the whole 31 minute Batgirl prologue, to the 75 minute movie is a start.

Yeah, there hasn’t been a great Moore adaptation yet, although that’s mostly due to the wrong people being put in charge of them. And movies are too short - needs to be TV. I dream of HBO doing Watchmen or League of Extraordinary Gentlemen!

I think it's because his writing is OK for comics but doesn't really work in movies, what seems relatively sophisticated in comics comes across as simplistic on the big screen, and he's one of the better comic book writers.
