Well, having seen the ending of the film, it's a lot less convincing than the ending of the comic!

Not that I don't see why Snyder changed the ending, but I can't join in the sudden cry of "Oh, well, the squid was rubbish anyway". It works fine for me.
I don't mind it being removed myself, but one has to remember Hollywood is kind of a giant machine. I don't know if was VISIONARY DIRECTOR Zack Snyder who removed it all on his own or if it was some focus group or executive or something.

Same as Frank. Thought the
Spoiler:
squid ending
was a misjudgement on Moore's part back in the original day - still think it now.

But, if it works for you, that's fine. It just didn't for me.

Well, at least the squid ending was set up - clues point towards it from Chapter One. The new ending? Probably made up on the day of filming. Definitely not set up in the film.

Well, I'm gutted.

I spent a lot of time cultivating the right contacts and eventually got on a list for a bloggers only press screening of the film. Opened the email last night to find it's happening and it's this morning at 10.30. Day full of meetings today so I couldn't even sack the day off and jump on the train. Sad

I've been checking the show times for my local theatre since last weekend. Their website keeps telling me they don't have movie times for Friday scheduled yet. But I will plan to attend one of the early showings (if you go on a Friday before noon, you usually have the entire theatre to yourself, because all the kids are still in school.)

So should I read the comic before I see it?

I often look at adaptations as totally separate that have nothing to do with the source material. It's self delusion at it's best. Wink

I dunno, I would. Since the movie's doubtless going to be a condensed version of the story, it would probably help to fill in some blanks.

Yes, you should definitely read the comic before you see it. You'd understand the film better. And the comic is better. I don't see how you can seperate the the film from the source material, or what you really mean by the self delusion thing.

No, Tone, I've just got an opinion that you, I presume, don't agree with, though you haven't said why, apart from accusing me of being a troll, or of being Sparacus.

As I say, your loss if you don't read the comic. I've read the comic and seen the film so, y'know what? I think I know what I'm talking about.
