Watchmen (The Graphic Novel) VERSUS Watchmen (The 2009 Movie)



Graphic novels and graphic novel movies have been a staple of American culture since the golden age of comics. They have steadily become the most interesting and hotly debated of cinematic exploits. To talk about a time when movies made us feel like we knew superheroes is to talk about a time when cinema ruled the world. But in terms of graphic novels, none are more highly revered than that of Alan Moore. Of all Moore’s work, his foray into the nuclear-driven world of “Watchmen” has so many topics for discussion, let alone comparison. Once called “unfilmable” by the author himself, this novel deals with so many topics that it is rough to even summarize. But though “unfilmable,” “300” director Zack Snyder has dared to conquer such a thing in his 2009 adaptation. We at the Versus Machine Podcast feel Snyder got some of the essence of purpose and characters, but he missed the biggest points. Unfortunately, this leaves us wanting in a way that may be hard to conquer for any fan.

Star Trek (2009) – A Perspective Review



On September 8, 1966, the world was introduced to the world of phasers, photon torpedoes, the United Federation of Planets, and the captaincy of one James Tiberius Kirk. Since then, Star Trek has not only become one of the most popular properties worldwide, but has become a piece of language lexicon, cinema history and for many – a veritable way of life. In 2009, Hollywood beamed a new, younger cast into pieces of the original Star Trek universe to build an all-new series of chronicles on the silver screen that truly do pay homage to the original series, but stand boldly on their own. Set phasers for STUNNING, as you lock down the inertial dampeners so as to not be knocked from your seatbelt-less chair as we engage the warp drive during this Perspective Review of STAR TREK (2009), directed by J.J. Abrams. Remember to open hailing frequencies and be sure to tell us what you think!
