Watchmen at midnight!

I am very excited to see Watchmen tonight. I'm rocking the midnight screening at cinerama and it's going to rule.
Ebert thought it was brilliant and The Stranger thought it was good, but it couldn't measure up to the book.

The music was odd and out of place, but in general yes, it was a very good movie. :)

The music was an interesting choice for sure. Very mainstream and very recognizable tracks all throughout it. It was obviously an artistic decision to use things like Simon and Garfunkel, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan, besides using music that would have actually existed in 1985.

Right! I knew there was more reason to having them in there.

Some of it worked, but some of it seemed like the chose it purely because of its presence in pop culture.

The only one that felt slightly uneven to me was the Simon and Garfunkel song during the funeral. Everything else was totally fine.

99 red balloons struck me as odd.

That one didn't seem strange to me at all. Completely topical for the subject of the movie, timely for when the film is taking place as well.
