Leah Moore interview

WatchmenComicMovie.com chats with writer Leah Moore, who also happens to be the daughter of 'Watchmen' creator Alan Moore.

The interview has many interesting and insightful remarks, such as this one:

"I saw the trailer on YouTube and it looks visually impressive, very close to Dave’s artwork. I saw it in the cinema the other day and it was really weird to see all that stuff up on the big screen. It feels like Watchmen was a part of my childhood, and now it’s up there really bright and loud and everyone can see it suddenly. Imagine someone suddenly doing a feature film about the random objects in your parent’s living room from when you were small, and you get close to how surreal it is.

"I will go and see it certainly, out of curiosity and to see if it was done as well as everyone hopes, or as badly as everyone fears.

"I suspect it will end up mysteriously in the middle of the two like V for Vendetta. V was very like Dave Lloyd’s drawings and was very thrilling to watch, but left me feeling all weird, like they’d switched the most vital thing in the book with something else, and hoped no-one would notice.

I agree that V was emasculated. It's okay on it's own. The production values are high and I enjoyed it even though it can only disappoint, in some respects, those who read the graphic novel, which I did. I might have liked the screen treatment of the end better than the novel treatment, but I'm not sure since the novel has faded from my memory. (Who didn't like that knife throwing showdown scene?) Getting older might have something to do with it. But I do remember being disappointed that critical elements (the duplicate monitoring station) in the novel were not respected in the big screen translation.
