Have you ever seen that one movie with that dude in it? Chances are someone here has, and they want to talk to you about it. Grab some popcorn and discuss all things relating to the silver screen.
I saw Kick-Ass and really enjoyed it but i haven't seen Watchmen yet.So just wondering which one is better. also, i read both comics and loved each of them.
You can't really compare the two in my opinion. Yes, they are both comic book/graphic novel adaptations, but their subject matters can not be more different from each other.
They both are really different movies in terms of tone. Watchmen is dark and gloomy, but Kick-Ass is light hearted yet disturbing. I think Kick-Ass is better though considering it portrays the source material better.
T- DUBBS, you need to shut the **** up (sorry, not meant so much as an insult as much a friendly F you, I do it to my friends all the time)! Watchmen hands down is a better film, I get the tone differences and all, but in the long run Watchmen's story is more meaningful than the bizarre, um... spoof? I guess, I mean that seemed like what they were going for. Oh, but then maybe you were just joking about the Kick-ass film being closer to the source material, is that it? Having read and seen both comics and their films I can honestly say that Watchmen's adaptation is closer to its comic book counterpart, as for the most part it takes things out of the source rather than add things (which Kick-ass definitely did, if you think I'm joking, need I remind you of a certain Jet-pack?). It's no biggie, just throwing my two cents out there

Can't really compare the two..not much in common aside from the fact they are both based on comics. Story is completely different, but both are good to watch. I don't care about movies based on comics being faithful to the story nowadays. As long as it works and the movie turns out good is all that matters. Some great comic books just don't make great movies and need to be changed story wise for it to work.
They're two completely different movies. Watchmen is all-around a better movie, but Kick-Ass is ALOT of fun and is still in theaters. You should probably see Kick-Ass for the sole sake of seeing it and Hit-Girl's psychotic glory on the big screen.
I think it's funny they tried to make the whole hit-girl thing "funny" most of the humor from it in the comic was how disturbing it was. It was very tongue-in-cheek as opposed to haha she killed that guy, so I was kind of hesitant to enjoy it, that and shes like a hundred times more violent in the comic. They're both good movies, but Watchmen has more purpose and storytelling, whereas Kick-ass isn't really about anything
Both were based on comics, both had one really awesome character (I'll leave you to decide who they are). Probably the only things the two movies had in common.
hit girl was easily more awesome (and violent) in the comics, Rorscach was still essentially the same character
Kick-ass. Liked watchmen,but still. Kick-ass.
These movies do not belong in the Same catergory. Watchmen is way better.
Just my opinion but I don't see the fun in Kickass
I know what you mean, I loved reading Kick-Ass but as a film it just wasn't that great
Kick-Ass was a hilarious and fun movie, but it doesn't deserve to be anywhere near Watchmen. In the defense of Mark Millar, though, very few things are as good as the Watchmen comic. It's not really fair to compare them.
as far as entertainment value goes, I prefer the Kick-ass comic to Watchmen, certainly Watchmen is very deep and rich in storytelling, but the pacing can be painful at points
Watchmen wins. A wholeheartedly more entertaining film. Plus, it didn't have Nicholas Cage in it. ;]
