Guess who I saw at Easton Sunday, March 8th, 2009?

Frank Layton, with his wife Jacque and child A.J.!

"Watchmen", was originally the title of this blog posting, which made me think... "I am without a doubt, the only person to entitle a blog that way... ever, or at least in the past couple of month's".

Well, it started out as the Friday morning, March the 6th 12:01a.m. showing... then after much discussion and logistical analysis, we came to rock solid conclusion, which best suited everybody - 10:15a.m. showing of Watchmen in IMAX, I bought the tickets ahead of time at, which is my usual method of avoiding lines/hassles at the theater anymore.

Tony says :
I love the movie. It was true to the graphic novel's story (other than one or two non-key plot points) and it was very similar to what I imagined scenes looking like in my head, when reading it. I couldn't ask for more. I would have never imagined so many scenes could "come-to-life", as if they jumped off the pages and were moving and talking! It was amazing! I am poised to see it again, with Monica this week... I am guessing Tuesday, soon after 5p.m. I will undoubtedly pay to see this movie in theaters many times and buy every version that comes out on Blu-ray. In the end, I am guessing I will hand over about $100 for the movie adaptation of the graphic novel that I got for free. We'll call it even in the end, since that is what we as consumers do - pay for our own enlightenment and entertainment. Like Blake said - "'s all just a big joke anyway"

By the way, if you haven't read the graphic novel, I suggest you do so before you read any further.

P.S. - If I didn't mention it... I saw Governor Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger there too.

Anyone want some pain flavored Dorito's?
Pain Flavored Doritos
I love the Japanese!

For Watchmen fans - Adrian Veidt is behind it all.

More later!


  1. Great movie, great day! Pain flavored Doritos?! Hook me up!!!

  2. LOL! Pain flavored Doritos? Nice...

    Frank told me about Ahnold being there! How funny is that? And I agree with your review of the film (Frank & I both agree it was awesome!).

    I'm adding you to my blogroll Tony!

  3. It was cool to see Arnold! I am going to try to talk Frank, Billy and Ryan into seeing Watchmen in IMAX again, this Saturday after golf. Thanks for the add!

    New post strictly about the "pain flavored" Doritos, on its way
