take a look at this interview (with Zack Snyder) and take heart Watchmen (2009)-doubter!
No, I don’t mean this stuff:
The story “deconstructs heroes. … It kind of takes it all the way,” Snyder says. “How far do you take this superhero thing? Do you take a cat out of a tree or do you create world peace? That’s really the dilemma that they face. Superman has the ability to go to all the world leaders and say, ‘I will kill all of you if you don’t behave.’ He could do that, but why doesn’t he?”
(I’ve already gone on record with my statement that Squadron Supreme asks those questions better than Watchmen does–although, of course, a Watchmen movie must ask those questions!)
I mean THIS:
“The Owl Ship’s got to have an eight-track,” Snyder says. “There’s also a coffee maker. That’s really important to the Owl Ship.”
So–in order for a Watchmen movie to be good–that coffee scene will have to be there–and it couldn’t be there without a coffeemaker in the Owl Ship.
That’s my feeling about it, at any rate.
Are there any scenes that you insist must be in the film, in order for it to work for you? I’d love to hear some opinions on that.
good afternoon–part II
