I suppose I'll see it on TV when it comes round. I have no expectations either way, but I find most films bearable.

I can't remember if you have read 'Watchmen'. I am not a fan of the superhero genre, and I loathe most superhero films, but this has that awful painful potential to be on a different level.

I read it years ago - I bought a copy recently because it was going so cheap (film promo, I imagine), but haven't had a chance to reread yet.

Regarding my answer to the second question: because this way I won't be disappointed, and may even be pleasantly surprised.

I'm not convinced by this strategy - I prefer to be painfully disappointed on a regular basis

It doesn't open here for another couple of weeks. The movie companies still haven't understood that the world has changed since the 1980s...

No, in Sweden that's only done do children's movies.

7:15 tonight.

I'm expecting it to be "good"

I'm keeping "brilliant" to one side for the ultimate edition, with half an hour of extra footage and the Black Freighter bits added in.

Yes, perhaps 'pretty good' isn't equidistant between the alternatives to either side.

It's some sort of superhero movie isn't it?

It's the best superhero book, but whether it's the best superhero movie, I doubt

It's Alan Moore, isn't it? The book. I haven't read much of his stuff. From Hell was OK. The good news is, the movie can't possibly be worse than V for Vendetta.

I am expecting it to be good looking and stylish and faithful to the novel, but I'm not sure yet whether it will actually have the heart of the book. And whether the change to the ending will be rubbish. I'm looking forward to it though.

Yes, the promotional pics have been faithful to the point of pedantry, but how far does that get you? We'll see

The first review I read said that it was very good, but would not suit those who don't like a high level of violence. So, that's me out.

I think it's and 18 cert so it must be pretty extreme - I won't be taking my daughter, which is a shame in a way

I'll probably pick it up on DVD when it comes out. I haven't read it, and almost certainly won't before seeing the film, but I might do afterwards.
