I was Tumblr-ing around when I came across a mini-review of the Watchmen. Though this person couldn’t reveal the details, he/she did mention that it’s an awesome movie, even better than what he/she expected. The interesting bit of his/her entry was, this person mentioned the trailer did not do justice to the movie.
Ah, the trailer. By now, you’d seen it already. A fan of the graphic novel, I can’t really say I love the trailer to bits, nor I hate it. I’ll give my review when it’s actually out at cinemas. But if there’s one bone I can pick with the trailer, it’ll be the Smashing Pumpkins’ track they used.
Smashing Pumpkins has seven albums and Zack Synder (Watchmen’s director) had to pick the same song SP did for Batman & Robin. Yes, that nipple-friendly Batman franchise. The Grammy-winning ‘The End is the Beginning is the End’ is apparently remade and retitled as ‘The Beginning is the End is the Beginning’ for the Watchmen’s soundtrack.
I say wth! Plenty of creativity and good music around. Why recycle?
