In another world, or maybe year, we'd have Michael Bay adapting THE definitive version of Arthurian Legend.

FTA:

"Hence, his Watchmen is a lovingly vivid, gorgeously rendered adaptation of the classic Alan Moore graphic novel...."

The opening credits, absolutely.

The rest, not so much.

At least half the cast was really good - Rorschach and The Comedien were perfect IMHO.


Yes, Jackie Earle Haley was as close to the perfect Rorschach as it was probably possible to get. Too bad the casting for so many other major parts (looking at you, Adrien Veidt) was beyond lame.

As for King Arthur stories, I've always been a sucker for the 1967 musical of "Camelot" for some reason. Probably because Vanessa Redgrave made the best Guinevere. But there were moments of such unintentional comedy in it, too, like the suggestive shadow on the face of Richard Harris when he does his famous soliloquy beside the Round Table (check it out at about the 2:40 mark).
