Watchmen Prediction Thread

Posted by The Swollen Goi... on Monday, February 23, 2009

1.) What do you think won't make it to the screen? What do you think will? (If you already know the answer in one case or another, please be kind enough not to spoil it for others.)

2.) Which characters do you think will resonate most with Watchmen virgins? [There are a number of things to consider, here, for example: 1.) Today's audience differs from yesteryear's audience. 2.) Today's audience won't be necessarily be peopled, primarily, by comic fanboys. 3.)The actors' performances could heavily color how certain characters are received.]

3.) Which actor do you think will best capture his/her character?

4.) Final Tomatometer?

5.) Grosses: US opening weekend? Final US domestic gross? Final worldwide gross?

6.) How much fight footage do you predict will not be played at true speed? (It would be bordering on foolish to predict that less than 60% of the fight footage would not be sped up or slowed down to some degree.)

7.) How many shots of heroes landing in "cool" hero poses do you think we will see? We've already seen three or four in the trailers. I would bet on more than three if I were you. (No, the one of [minor spoiler if you've never read the books] the Comedian landing on the sidewalk in his bathrobe doesn't count.)

8.) How many shots of characters screaming in the general direction of the camera do you think we will see? We've already seen three or four in the trailers. I would bet on more than three if I were you.

9.) Is it gonna rock, or is it not gonna rock? (What means this "rock"? It means "rawk" to the layperson. The layperson, in this case, is Quasar.)

I believe we've already established it will rawk.

I predict Goiter will be a hater.

I predict that it will RAWK. I predict that it will have a good opening weekend, but the general (moronic) population will fail to connect with it.

I also predict that if I get to see Carla Guguno's and Malin Akerman's tits in the movie, I will see it multiple times in IMAX.

Knowing only a little bit about the graphic novels and judging from the 5 or 6 trailers out there, I would be VERY surprised if this movie failed.

Kaeos and I are going to see it next Friday night and review that movie together on the radio show......(No, that was not a shameless plug)....

I keep my standards low, that way im never dissapointed

I predict that Goiter will says "DID NOT LIKE!"

[I was going to edit that, but then decided that if I left it as is, I would sound like a certain Governator]

I predict Goiter will purchase a ticket for the very first available showing, sit through the entire showing without blinking once, will sit in the theater unmoving afterward until everyone else has left, then tilt his head upwards and scream "SNNNNYYYYYYYDDDDDERRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I swallowed them whole, shat them out two days later, wiped them off, and said, "That'll teach 'em!" to no one in particular.

Latino Review has their review up. They gave it an A.
Massawyrm at Red's site loved it until the end. He hated the end (and not because of the giant squid).
Movie critics seem to have given it lukewarm reviews, but it also sounds like they don't get the movie (or the comic) at all.

I just want to see Manhattan's giant cock.

I originally used this space to tell you to re-post stuff I said in the Watchmen thread in the Lounge, but I've done some editing since then.  Just go to the Lounge's Watchmen thread if you want to see what's there.

Is that a routine you do with all your movie tickets, or is Watchmen just special?

Dunno if you were joking or not but are people confused by what the HypeMeter does? I know, there's no FAQ yet and I gotta get that fixed up, but generally speaking, do people know that they can change their vote for a film's current level of hype at any time, and that by changing their HypeMeter rating, it can effect the HypeLine for that movie going up or down?

That's the reason why I had it made...so when a new bit of casting or a trailer comes out, people can say instantly what it is that they think of this new bit of info.

No matter where you go, there you are.

No really. When I click on it, I can't seem to actually do anything except change the dates, like zooming in and out.

Why on earth would you think I was joking? :)

I didn't realize that the rating was over to the right. I'll go be stupid somewhere else for a while now.

Some weekend predictions:

The Box Office Mojo derby average: 70.9 million
Box Office Guru: 64 million
Cinematical: 70 million

The folks at Box Office Prophets and Box Office Report need to get off their lazy asses and start predicting.
