Who Watches the Watchmen

As more and more reviews of Watchmen come in, I think my favorite to date comes courtesy of Debbie Schlussel who calls it a film fit only for a moron and a vapid, indecent human being Her site is a parental watchdog site which rates movies in terms of Karl Marxes, promotes books about the Islamic menace, and ends the review with a plea that "G-d help this country (minus Hollywood)." A glorious example of the oeuvre.

She ends her review with an anecdote about a woman she berates and loathes because the woman (a single mother, gasp!) presumes that her own ten-year old son "knows it's (movies) not real and he knows the difference between right and wrong." Debbie's estimation of this boy's future? "Her son is going to grow up to be messed up."

While I'm on the subject of batshit Watchmen-related material, screenwriter David Hayter recently wrote an open letter to ... well, the haters, I suppose ... wherein he suggests that fans of the film are much like rape victims. Rape victims who fall in love with their rapists. And he means it as a compliment.
