Everything Wrong With Watchmen In 17 Minutes Or Less

  • Published: 10 March 2016
  • With a new Snyder superhero film coming up, we take a look at one of his earlier superhero films: Watchmen. For the hell of it, we went with the extended edition, which we now regret.

    Next Week: Romantic Comedy sins & animated sins.

    Remember, no movie is without sin! Which movie's sins should we expose next?!

      Should add a thousand sins for: if the world found out the truth the smartest man would be their new villain, not go back to threatening each other with nukes🙂 the blood and ketchup missed me

                  2:50 America would never elect the same dude five times in a row. We're fickle, and that would span 20 years, with a new generation of votes and... Five terms?!?!? LOL just look at russia!

                    I am sure the person who put this list together has next to no sense of irony or layers of emotional character composition, a tic-tac-toe analysis of chess game tactics.

                      Listen, even though Jes can rewatch this forever, it is flawed and there were mistakes, that being said, you are still the best at what you do, also there are hella comma's in this comment.

                        1:03 actually, the guy being punched is supposed to be joe chill and the people being saved are Thomas and Martha Wayne. It’s meant to be an Easter egg and the Batman posters in the back imply that Bruce Wayne never becomes Batman because his parents are never murdered

                            Roosevelt was elected for 4 terms. Maybe he could have done 5 if he lived? Plus, I thought the point of showing Nixon being elected for 5 terms was that Nixon could have manipulated the electorate.

                              I just watched this movie for the first time a couple days ago, it was really dumb and I'll not see it again. It felt really disjointed and nonsensical.

                                5:14, This is actually movie; in it's entirety is actually a metaphor for the unappreciative attitudes of the Americans when the soldiers came home from Vietnam.

                                      Well you didn't get Watchmen did you. I mean you spotted the Batman comic reference but didn't spot that right next to those posters are the Wayne's leaving the opera and being saved by a Mask meaning that young Bruce never has any motivation to become Batman. So yer, Batman only exists in the Watchmen universe as a comic. Half of what you've mentioned aren't sins, they're deliberate jabs at super hero tropes. (As you know, the whole graphic novel was a deliberate jab at the whole superhero trope.)

                                            The Jenny claim of jailbait is not because of Laurie's age, but because of Jenny's.

                                            Example: I had an ex call me "Chester the Molester" because my new girlfriend was 22. I was 32 and she was pushing 40. Great logic, right?

In the Watchmen universe, all DC Super-heroes are made-up, but places like Gotham and Metropolis still exist. It's pretty cool (Doomsday Clock is actually the greatest thing ever and explains some of this)
