You're not doing it right.


For sake of clarification, Drew is stating that:

"!=" ^# "≠"

Where "^#" = "!="

-MMM

Edit...or maybe Drew is a really good kisser. Possibly both.

Excellent. I'll look forward to that next week.

Any unresolved (or indeed resolved) sexual tension between hot males in tight costumes to look forward to?

Nah, he said the watchmen, not Batman and Robin.

Were you actually thinking that when the two hot lesbian superheroes were kissing?

Point of order.

Only one of the women involved in the kiss is a superhero. This is one of the coolest things in the story... that famous kiss on VE day between the sailor and nurse in Times Square? In the Watchmen world, instead of those two, Silhouette wanders by and kisses the girl just before the sailor would... this is important because it reinforces the way in which the superheroes interfere with the lives of the people in the Watchmen world.

Just geeking out about Watchmen.

Point of order. You are confused about which victory day spawned the original kiss. Look further east.

The kiss was a great moment in the film, but (at the risk of turning a lesbian sex thread into something far less interesting) it was also an example of how in a few places the movie didn't quite click because of the way it mixed a modern treatment with the more period treatment of the comic.

If a woman dressed in black leather can sweep up another woman on the street and kiss her without the crowd reacting and then she and that woman can be an obvious couple during a later photoshoot, the whole lesbian sex scandal bit doesn't really make sense. The comic book portrayed a far less tolerant world, where her homosexuality (and the implied homosexuality of Hangman) were secrets. (She resigned from the Minutemen when it became public.)

A more blatant example of this sort of disconnect was the prison scene where Big Figure wants to kill Rorshach and is down to just one thug. In the comic book they showed very little fighting so it seemed plausible that Rorshach could be the underdog and need to outthink the giant man. In the movie it's clear that he and the other Watchmen are semi-superhuman fighters and when he just beats the big guy up it's sort of a "Duh, what were you expecting, Mr. Figure?" moment.

You got a point with this, Chad.
I clearly remember thinking "What did he expect, bringing only two thugs to ROHRSCHACH, who single handed took out a whole SWAT Squad some minutes before."
The way Rohrschach fights in the Movie, the gangster should have brought at least a dozen or so of the thugs.

Lemme kiss Drew and find out for you all and then I'll post my findings.

I don't remember the scene and don't have a copy of the comic to hand, but another example of the difference in fighting is the alley. I think that in the comic it was three or four thugs, maybe five and what we see isn't much more than that these two can handle themselves. In the movie they were outnumbered four to one or worse, and it was much more like a Dark Knight style fight (albeit a lot more graphic in terms of injuries). It was cool, and I can understand why they did it, but it definitely made other scenes not work the same.

On the other hand, it made Adrian's character somewhat plausible. If all the Watchmen are cinematic, then Adrian -- the best of the best -- being so fast he can catch a bullet doesn't seem that out of balance. You've already suspended disbelief to some extent, so why not accept that the guy who can meaningfully watch a hundred TV channels at once can do something that deep down we know isn't possible?

Actually, the world in 1945 was a lot more tolerant than the world in 1985. Especially towards masked heroes. During the Minutemen era there was innuendo and rumour about Silhouette's proclivities, along with those of some of the other Minutemen, but they were generally tolerated as long as these folks were doing the good work.

Tolerance for the heroes starts going downhill in the 50s, culminating of course with the police strike and the Keane Act in the late 70s.

Also, just from what I remember of that part of the movie (only saw it this weekend so I shouldn't forget it, but I was too busy having my mind exploded by the rest of the film) they didn't really give the shot enough time to show the reaction of the people around them, except maybe the sailor that "should" have been in the photograph. It was in slow-motion, and everyone was really wrapped up in the emotion of the VJ-Day celebration. All though I think it would have been cool if the sailor had been all crestfallen. Of course, the disappointment would have to be tempered with the enjoyment of watching a superheroine and a nurse making out in front of you (which is pretty much the perfect male fantasy come to life).

I apologize for also taking the thread away from its appreciation of lesbian kissing, but I thought I would add my two cents' worth.
