WATCHMEN: The Verdict

Sunday, March 8, 2009
Westwood Village,
The Village Theater
First screening of the day

WATCHMEN: The Verdict

"It is EPIC in length. It is Spectacular. It is Long. It is Violent. It is Magnificent. It is Grandiose. It is worth seeing. But set aside at least 4 to 5 hours and do not drink any liquids for at least an hour before the movie starts...There are scenes where you just want to scream, "This Movie Rocks" ! or "Cool!" or "Wow!" Other times you want to yawn and speed up the reel. In short, I liked it ! And I am glad it is over too. The moral of the story: The ends justify the means."

Comics Buyer's Guide, #1652, April 2009

The film, based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore, first published as a limited twelve issue comic book series in 1986 and 1987 by DC Comics (see:, is being directed by the same director as the film "300", namely, Zack Snyder.

The plot brings to mind a theme I've stressed for many years:

"Super Heroes Need Protection Too !"

Therein lies the coincidence but also the extent of any substantive similarity. The super hero as intellectual property does indeed require the thought and care of a competent intellectual property attorney. As for the film and its fictional super hero team, the Watchmen, we will all just have to wait and watch...

If you are a creator of super heroes or the like, we invite you to take a look at our website which features ARTICLES of interest, including, of course, our flagpole article, "Super Heroes Need Protection Too !"

Remember: "Protect What's Yours !"
