posted a Quick Tip about Watchmen (graphic novel). March 18, 2013
Watchmen
Although comic books have been evolving for years, I really think it was the publication of WATCHMEN which proved to general audiences that the medium could have narratives worthy of effective literature.  …

Watchmen
I just finished this book and this is one of the absolute best pieces of literature I've completed, regardless of the medium.  The best strengths The Watchmen has going for it are that it …

I'm a firm believer in that you shouldn't review something if you don't know the full story (or at least the background), like a person who doesn't play video games reviewing a video game …

From Hell (2001 movie)
Heavy on atmosphere and even heavier on conspiracy theories, FROM HELL boasts outstanding performances from Johnny Depp and Heather Graham as two lost souls crying out for one another's company while …

Batman: The Killing Joke
    When this book opens, the Joker is in an insane asylum and Batman is visiting him in an attempt to make peace before one of them gets killed. It could be described as “Batman …

Batman: The Killing Joke
It is no coincidence that the two best Batman movies had the Joker as Batman's main antagonist. There have been many colorful villains on the other side of the bat-punch over the years, but none is more …

Alan Moore
I adore his novels and he's clearly very talented, but my God is he a tit and a half. The rings, the anarchy bolocks, the beard. Eh

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume One
Solid proof that mainstream comic books can be combined with exciting, imaginative adventure and story-telling, illustrated with serious, skilled artwork.

All I know about WATCHMEN I learned from the movies. I'd never read the graphic novel…I'd never heard of it, in fact, until buzz about the movie started. So I cannot comment on the faithfulness …

V for Vendetta (2006 film)
   1984 would not have worked set in the United States. We seem to know that, no matter what, we will stand up and face down a system like the one Mr. Orwell described. Similarly V for Vendetta …

Alan Moore
I've only read a couple of his books but they were both fun and inventive works. Could be proof that all the best geniuses are a little insane in a good way.
posted a Quick Tip about Batman: The Killing Joke. August 30, 2010
Batman: The Killing Joke
Alan Moore's Batman story about The Joker's origin is a bit dated after the 89 Batman movie which more people are familiar with and a little slim. It's a nice easy read nonetheless.

V for Vendetta (2006 film)
If I had not read the graphic novel first, I'd have been bewildered. It adapts a challenging story well, despite the limits of two hours. I found the ending a moving one, cynic though I am. Recommended …

Delightful and prescient exploration of the superhero mythos. Asks whether we really want anyone above the law.

Zach Snyder does his best to adapt the "unfilmable" graphic novel magnum opus from Alan Moore, and comes up short from either fans who wanted more, or didn't think it stuck close enough to the source, …

I can see where the film was TRYING to go, but it never quite got there. Visually appealing but it dragged on just too long.

Careful what you ask for, you just might get it.  I always wanted to see the Watchmen made into a movie.  At the same time I knew it would be a train wreck.  It had to be.  How can …
