Harry lets TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER and UNDER THE HOOD play out before his eyes!

Published at: March 10, 2009, 8:41 a.m. CST



WATCHMEN: TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER & UNDER THE HOOD In total - there's over an hour or so worth of content on this DVD. I think that a lot of you will probably pass this release, hoping that this content will appear on some miraculous future WATCHMEN ultimate edition - and you're probably right - you'll most likely put this on a Netflicks queue before then though - and you definitely should. I put this in at approximately 5am this morning - and it absolutely riveted me. Upon unsheathing the disc from the case, I instantly chose to see UNDER THE HOOD - as I hadn't heard how that would be adapted. I quickly found out. It is in the form of a pre-Keene Act news program that was about Superheroes / Masked Heroes in America. It has lengthy interviews with Hollis Mason and Sally Jupiter, and newsreel footage of the various members of the Minutemen doing their thing. This is all WATCHMEN mega-geek overload stuff. Completely authentic feeling. The news show was very faithfully created and is critical of Hollis' book and heroes themselves. Interviewing people on the street about their thoughts and some surprising Watchmen side characters show up to talk as well! I found this very satisfying. It runs a shave over 37 minutes. Then there's TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER. I fucking loved it! Atmospheric, haunting, creepy and a fantastic short film all on its own. I wish that they'd hold the DVD release - and release this first in a select few theaters for Academy Qualification. TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER is very faithfully adapted - featuring the voice of Gerard Butler as the castaway. The feeling I got watching it (saw it 3 times tonight) is of a lost Poe or Lovecraft or EC story. The parallels and metaphoric references are all in there to work as a companion to the WATCHMEN universe, but better than that - this 21 minute animated short film is absolutely a solid work in and of itself. At points it feels very Graham Ingels or Bernie Wrightson. I love that this is hand animation at work, because it literally brings that comic to life. The score helps to enhance the fear - but Butler sounds like a man on the brink of insanity - clawing at reality as it tears upon his fingertips. The shark attack on the raft... Quint will die - and all JAWS fans and shark attack junkies should love it as well. This short film is R-rated and uncompromising in its conveyance of dread and melancholy. It is perfect. The only significant special Feature is the STORY WITHIN A STORY: THE BOOKS OF WATCHMEN - which is a very nice feature about why Zack felt it was important to give life to these two parts of the WATCHMEN story, which so many would have thought instantly eliminated from consideration. You'll find Len Wein and Dave Gibbons throughout this doc - along with various members of Zack's creative team - and lots of behind the scenes footage. It runs about 25 minutes. So in all this whole package is about an hour and a half - not counting the GREEN LANTERN preview or the 1st chapter of the Motion Comic for the WATCHMEN. I'd say this. If you loved WATCHMEN this weekend - then this is definitely worth picking up. It really made me want to go back and watch the film again for a fourth time!

    ...Risky and exciting studio films in years. Anyway, the new ending seems to rob the black freighter of its point, kind of, and I'm torn as to wether to wait for a big ass super duper directors cut with all this shit in, or just watch this stuff now.

    Watchmen will be released in more editions than LotR

    by Spandau Belly

    There will be the barebones theatrical cut edition.<br>The directors cut.<br>The edition with both the theatrical and director's cuts.<br>Another edition with a third cut that nobody really claims responsibility for, but the studio feels audiences might find interesting. Maybe they'll call Outcast Edition or something.<br>Then there will be the same DVD but with three cuts of the movie and these animated features plus a bloody smiley face pin and a Doc Manhattan Pez Dispenser.<br>Then they'll put out another edition with all the cuts of the movie, all the supliments, plus ten more commentary tracks and some more extra features about the promotional art 'n stuff plus a little figurine of Rorschach.<br>Then they'll kidnap and drug Alan Moore and record his mumblings and tack it on as an actual commentary track and put it out again.<br>Then they'll repackage it with an inevitable DTV prequel movie Zach Snyder Presents Rorschach: Origins starring Scott Adkins.<br><br><br>and all this will happen before the complete Kill Bill DVD even passes initial planning stages.

    Instead of separating the Freighter out

    by Monkey Butler

    or cutting it altogether, I would have extended Veidt's final scene with Manhattan, so that Veidt more fully describes his recurring nightmare. Just a few lines, No Country style, about being shipwrecked and knowing that he would have to do terrible things to save those that he loved, and that when he finally arrived home, the Freighter was there for him, not the people of his hometown. At the very least it would have worked better than the non-ending we were given in the film.

    by chiahead

    I dunno if I'd say there was no point to the black freighter just because there's no max shea. I may though, go so far as to say the thing about it that I loved in the book was how panel for panel it directly related (either literally or figuratively) to what was happening in the story proper. So, that said, taking it out of side by side comparison seems a little pointless. But even so, I'll probably still check it out if only to re edit the film in my head. I liked the movie for the most part. Thought Silk Spectre II and Oxymandias were in their own little movie (where high school melodrama and inconsistent accents are all the rage) but whatever.

    TOO LOYAL?

    by DECTHEMAN

    Is there such a thing as being too loyal to source material? I would have preferred less blue swinging dick and more time with Rorshach and his therapist. The movie was not bad, great when Rorshach was involved, but only o.k when the rest of the story was being told. Kinda like The Dark Knight-the movie was only ok when the Joker was'nt on the screen. Jackie Earl Haley was the best paper to film character I have seen in a long time. WAY TOO MUCH ACURACY ON THE BLUE DICK, after 300, maybe Zach's wife is a beard?

    Am I the only one who though Ackerman was great as Laurie?

    by dr sauch

    I mean, lets face it, Laurie is not a complex character in the novel. She's essentially a really hot chick with some latent daddy issues. Not exactly a paradigm-shifting female portrayal. Malin Ackerman fit the bill perfectly, she was: 1: Super hot 2: Super hot 3: Good at acting like she wasn't aware that Dreiberg was attracted to her. That's pretty much all it took, and she nailed it. This movie is a phenomenal accompaniment to the novel.

    I'm Gonna Say It

    by enderandrew

    The movie ending was BETTER. Better you hear me! The average audience wasn't going to sit through a 5 hour movie if they weren't familiar with the book, and including the squid meant including Tales of the Freighter. Inluding the squid meant cutting so much more. And you know what, the squid is pretty silly. It would have looked weird on film.<p>More importantly, using Dr. Manhattan makes more sense in the story. It is an improvement on Moore's original work. The moment you start thinking that one man's work can not be improved by anyone else, you get shitty auteur theory films where no one questions the director (note the Star Wars prequels). Given that Snyder didn't have huge clout, and given that he made the film in Hollywood, I think you just got by far the best adaptation of The Watchmen you are ever going to get. Stop your fucking bitching and be grateful that we didn't get another Schumacker debacle. And as much a I love TDK, Nolan put a very distinct imprint on his Bat-verse, diverging from the comics. The Watchmen is probably the single best comic adaptation you'll ever see. The only other candidate that exists today would be Frank Miller helping out on Sin City. And we saw how well he handled The Spirit.

    The Ending

    by Dancingforever

    There has been endless debate over Snyder's sad change to then end of the film, was it good or bad? To me, the only real criticism I have of the change is that the substitute was so completely underwhelming and other vital parts of the story were lost. Where was the conversation between Doc and Veidt where Jon tells him nothing ever ends? Did Snyder not see the perfect paradox between Doc meditating on Mars and Veidt meditating at the end of the story where to very different things were going on? I won't go into it but food for thought. The second Leonard Cohen starts singing hallelujah the film hits a wall of absurdity that it never recovers from. I went in expecting to hate the entire thing and was blown away at how perfect it was up until that point. After the sex scene you have the ridiculous jail break, bad and obvious music choices, and the final act playing out in a way that was unsatisfying and sloppy. To think the final conversation takes place not with Jon and Veidt, but instead Laurie and her Mom? WTF?? To many generalizations are being made that if you didn't like the film it's because the end was changed, I testify the reason I didn't like it was because the entire final act was a mess that ruins all the brilliance that came before it..

  • March 11, 2009, 12:58 a.m. CST

    enderandrew

    by MattmanReturns

    I agree. The movie's ending was tighter and made more sense. Although the devastation wasn't as powerful, I never cared for the squid. Blaming Dr. Manhattan just works perfectly for me... because he's a real threat that people were already familiar with. After his "LEAVE ME ALONE!!!" blowup it almost seemed like Moore setup a conclusion that never followed through.

  • March 11, 2009, 1:02 a.m. CST

    And Rorshach's final scene was much better on film

  • March 11, 2009, 5:17 a.m. CST

    I think the fact that they left out tales of the black freighter

    by Potatino

    is the reason they had to change the ending. Wasn't the point of the kid reading the over the top comic book kind of showing how reality was becoming more fantasy like ultimately kind of climaxed by the fantasy-like ending with the squid. So no comic book reading kid equals no build up to giant squid. Anyway just what I've been thinking about regarding the movie and how in some ways it doesn't feel right to me.

    I have to admit...

    by Sithtastic

    I can understand as to why Alan Moore won't have anything to do with Hollywood, when witnessing the steady churn out of products like this. It's not that I wouldn't like the Black Freighter or any of the other content. I'll just be left to wonder why it wasn't in the film.

    The movie is 2 hours and 40 minutes, and people are complaining that scenes weren't included. And you want to add the entire Black Freighter bits as well? Not only would the film be over 3 hours, but a lot of that is fairly slow moving. The first hour of the movie is a damn near perfect adaptation of the comic books, but that hour moves really slowly as it is very heavy on the exposition. Adding another 30 minutes to the movie wasn't going to happen.

    Tempting, but...

    by JT Kirk

    The pricepoint is so high for an hour of DVD. $20, $5 more for blu-ray. And we're given virtually nothing to go on but a few comments like Harry's, and our fandom for the source material. I'm impressed by WB continuing to support big-ticket movies with side products like AniMatrix, Gotham Knight, and now this. But it always feels like they hold back just a little, make the limited audience pick up the slack in both the faith and the wallet departments. It makes Netflix a far more tempting way to deal with it. <p>To be honest, it seems like the side-marketing stuff like this, and the viral videos, are delivering a far richer environment than the actual films (that includes TDK), and that's a shame because that flavor SHOULD be in the main films as well. Perhaps the director or editor needs to make room for these sorts of things better, because then they get the production quality they deserve and recognition by a larger audience. Lucas tried to go this route with Episode 2, and all it did was prove how hollow the movie itself was since the flavor was left on the website.

    Nice for DVD Extras

    by MattDomville

    ...But ridiculous to charge as an independent DVD. I saw a screening on Thursday, and nobody in the audience really seemed to dig it. "Freighter" is a pretty faithful adaptation, but the "Under the Hood" bit is pretty bland.
