There will be spoilers, so you’ve been warned. I’ve the majority of the day to think about this film and what I thought about it. Before we get into that, I want to say that this isn’t so much as a review as to what I liked and didn’t like about the film. I’m not a profession critic but I consider myself a student of film and discussing films and looking at them from different angles and taking them apart is something I enjoy doing, but I can’t do that without giving reference to you about my feelings on the director and the character of Superman.
In the time I’ve been writing and producing the Sequential Sunday column I’ve always chosen as my subject matter a certain creator, publishing company, or gallery event. I’m going to go against my own grain this time and choose (of all things) a promotional item, namely the British press kit produced to herald what was, at the time, the upcoming Watchmen movie’s release. What looks at first like a plain brown box actually conceals this behemoth of a press kit.
