Today is the 10th anniversary of Zack Snyder's Watchmen, a film I tend to like more than most but which I concede has its issues. (Here's my original review, which is sort of painfully rambling to read now to be honest but I'll share all the same.) It's become especially difficult in the wake of everything that Snyder has made since Watchmen to attribute as much irony to the film as I had been when I first saw it -- when I saw the film in 2009 I thought the soundtrack being excruciatingly on-the-nose was the point, that it was some meta-Verhoeven shit turning superhero propaganda in on itself. Now here ten years and one Justice League later I'm more inclined to think along the lines of my pal Chris's piece over at The Film Experience today -- that Snyder's not really in on the joke. All that said I haven't sat down and re-watched the Watchmen in awhile, so I'll shut up and just point you towards some celebratory butts.
