Confessions: “Watchmen”


Okay, ya’ll I’m going to make a confession here today…I have absolutely no interest in “Watchmen.” Not even a little bit.

Not liking a movie isn’t normally that big of a deal and—under normal circumstances—would not warrant a confession-themed blog post.

The thing is…I am supposed to love this movie. I am supposed to be waiting in a line 300 people deep in front of a movie theater. I am supposed to have my official “Watchmen” t-shirt, hat and underoos ready and waiting for Friday’s premiere.

The problem is, I just don’t give a rat’s ass.

I realize that I fall smack-dab in the middle of the key demographic that studio execs are aiming for. I’m a 25-year old dude who eats up the whole action, superhero thing like nobody’s business. I’m the perfect target for the big-wigs who put out these movies.

During the previews for “The Dark Knight” I should have been amongst the teeming masses who gasped in giddy anticipation when the “Watchmen” trailer aired. Instead of gasping (or even caring a little bitty bit) I just looked around in awe at the total geek-out I’d just witnessed.

I don’t know why I don’t care about “Watchmen,” but I just flat-out don’t. I’ve got no good reason to have zero interest in this flick, but sometimes that’s just the way it goes.

So—to all ya’ll who are super-stoked for the “Watchmen” premiere—don’t get upset with me for hatin’ on this flick. Heck, you can look at it this way…I’m simply opening up another seat at the theater for you and/or one of your friends who doesn’t think this movie is going to suck something fierce.

No need to thank me, ’tis my pleasure.
