Rorscach is more sadistic than the Joker in every way. And that's kind of scary, since he fights for justice.
I'm going to see the movie today, by the way. Anyone else seen it yet?

I'll still watch it because it doesn't cost me any money to bet disappointed with TWBB episode 3.

Fair enough, but I don't think you should judge a movie because someone else didn't like it.

I can, because the same applies to me.
Rorschach is awesome, but I can't choose between him and the Joker, both are too freaking awesome.
And Surge, whoever said that is nuts.

I personally hated the spidermans, and the superman movies even more so. But I actually liked dark knight, it was more like chronicles of riddick than a superhero move

They're not my thing either. Watchmen isn't, like, a "superhero movie." If you're a fan of Brawl, you need to see it.

People, including our own pureawesome, used to compliemnt me on the Watchmen references in Brawl and I was always like, "I've never read that." Now I think it's kind of bizarre how CLEARLY influential it was on Brawl... even though I just read it for the first time two weeks ago.

Oh and the answer is that Rorschach smokes the Joker.

Yeah, Rorschach more effective than the Joker.

I only read Watchmen once I saw the trailer, but my friends have all been reading it since the day they first discovered it, most at a young age. The movie was good enough, but then, superhero movies really are my thing, and since it was also Watchmen that pretty much meant I'd like it no matter what. Anyways, despite the changes, scenes/lines/characters/events/squids cut from the movie, it still adds up to one of the better supehero movies out right now. But probably not the best.

DAAAAAAAAMN.

This was the most awesome comic book movie ever. I salute you, Zack Snyder. You managed not to rape the original source material.
Now, since we've seen that graphic novels really can work as movies. They made Watchmen work, so could Maus be next?

There was only one part I didn't like at all: the part when Laurie and Dan were fighting the gang. It was so unnecessarily graphic. I mean, Rorscach would do all that stuff, but these two characters are way more mentally balanced. It brought 300 to my mind, in a bad way.
At least they didn't cut off any heads.

Really? I thought their level of asskickery was totally reasonable. When you're in a fight with people trying to kill you, you break their fucking bones. That is how it's done!

Yes, but you don't stab them in the neck.

Saw Watchmen. It was alright. My biggest complaint is for most of the movie there was really no sense of purpose. They were just doing random stuff.

To answer the original question, Rorscach's boiling cafeteria fat vs. Joker's pencil, Joker wins. You could tell the cafeteria fat was going to be used, but Joker's magic trick was completely out of the blue. That said, Rorscach yelling "I'm not locked in here with you, YOU'RE LOCKED IN HERE WITH ME!" was pretty hardcore.

Well, it's not that predictable in the comics.

Maybe YOU don't.

a guy wrote:Saw Watchmen. It was alright. My biggest complaint is for most of the movie there was really no sense of purpose. They were just doing random stuff.

Then, no offense, but you missed the point. This isn't necessarily your fault -- the movie doesn't nail this stuff 100% of the time. But Watchmen is concerned with the psychology of characters trying to operate in a world on the brink and its the sense of paranoia of impending doom. It's a work of literary density. It's NOT a save the world superhero adventure, although it ironically resembles one toward its final act.

This stood out more when the comic was written. By now we've had twenty years of comics and genre and pulp pieces that have been inspired by Watchmen and given their characters interesting internal conflicts. But Watchmen still did it first, and did it better.

The "predictability" isn't a weakness. The setup and payoff is where it's at!
