The black and white one is from last month.
So I watch The Watchmen just now, finally. I'm sure most know it's by the same director that did The 30bei0, which was an amazing panel by panel retelling of that story.
The Watchmen takes a different path, but I think it works. It's already almost 3 hours long, and that's with several subplots excised. Even then, there are a lot of nods and easter eggs from the graphic novel. I could recognize the chapter breaks and there were recreations of specific panels.
I really enjoyed the film, to me it's a nice compromise between being faithful to the source and being a 12 hour miniseries.
Too bad Alan Moore is so opposed to his work being translated to film.
