[comics] Moore and Hayter Talk About Watchmen — brief mention of discussion regarding a proposed Watchmen Film … Moore: ‘Watchmen was designed as a showcase of things that comics are capable of but aren’t so easy to achieve in any other medium. […] With a comic, you can take as much time as you want in absorbing that background detail, noticing little things that we might have planted there.You can also flip back a few pages relatively easily to see where a certain image connects with a line of dialogue from a few pages ago. But in a film, by the nature of the medium, you’re being dragged through it at 24 frames per second.’

I remember (just after reading it) being really into the concept of a Watchmen movie. This is when Terry Gilliam was going to do it, mind. And I was young and impetuous. Now there’s nothing I want less. Can you imagine the godawful mess they’ll make of it? Yeesh.
