Re: Watchmen 2?

I read the article twice and didn't really get much out of it. I know it was in English, but it still didn't register.
I was hoping a project that would focus on the Minutemen would be more acceptable. I agree with the sentiment of others that the Watchmen were done justice in the film, but it was the Minutemen I was aching to see more of.

The last time I watched it though, I was trying to figure out how well Nite Owl II and Silk Spectre II actually knew each other. From the sounds of it, they only went out and fought crime together a few times. Plus, did the 6-member Watchmen ever actually go out and fight crime as a team? I don't think so. They just met, took the photo, The Comedian lit a map on fire and meeting over. I read the comic and have seen the film several times, but I think it's taking a while for it all to sink in.

Yes, I am seventy-five years old. On a fixed income and with reading glasses.
