Alan Moore On Watchmen: The Movie

The genius speaks.

Click above to check out an interesting LA Times interview with the man behind Watchmen. Undoubtadly Moore has good reason to be vengeful towards hollywood, but as Dave Gibbons (artist behind Watchmen) has pointed out, he has no problem taking the money. So his very vocal naysaying of the Watchmen movie comes across as somewhat redundant.

Unfortunately he appears as something of a grumpy old man. I'll be the first to agree that the man's work has been raped, but that's not to say that it's impossible for someone to finally deliver a satisfying adaptation. Zack Snyder may or may not be the man to do so, but I think I speak for everyone out there in fanboy-land that if he did and it was... then that would rock. A lot.

What a fucking asshole he is.

He's never watched any of his movies but prepared to say that they're shit. Thats the same kind of idiotic logic that too many fucking retards have in the world.

I've lost a lot of respect for the man now.

In fairness, is he wrong about the films being shit? V for Vendetta is, as I've said before, OK if you pretend there's no comic. LXG? From Hell? CONSTANTINE? Once bitten twice shy and all that...
