Re: WATCHMEN - Movie Discussion and Grading (SPOILERS)

Seriously, the slow-motion shit's getting out of hand. It's everywhere. Disney did to the Power Rangers.

Japanese. Power Rangers. Slow motion.

For fuck's sake, one of these things just doesn't belong...and I'm saying that from a composition standpoint. The fights look terrible, with the slow-mo sucking any momentum in the (air) punches, and highlighting the limits and faults in the costuming and making the pyrotechnic charges far more apparent.

Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight is the only modern, American-adapted tokusatsu I've seen that doesn't use slow-mo for everything. Then again, it wasn't initially a giant pile of steaming shit in Japan either.
