The Original Unfilmable

The Watchmen is perhaps the most important super-hero comic ever done. Alan Moore was on top of his game, and in our estimation even Miller‘s Dark Knight doesn’t quite represent the quantum leap Moore achieved with Watchmen.

And yet, in 20-odd years, nobody’s managed to do a film. In college, we used to say it was unfilmable, but still amuse ourselves over drinks with fantasy casting. As it happens, in 2007, you no longer need content yourselves with plans over booze; you can put your own segments on YouTube and let the world see what you’ve got. Apparently, there’s a real film in the works (but this has happened before); we only hope it’s as good as this tiny bit of fanfilm.
