Lightbulb Predict the speed-ramping in Watchmen

So the movie. What moments from the comic will we see slowed way the fuck down? And then, probably, suddenly sped back up? See Zack Snyder's 300 or his Dawn of the Dead remake if you don't know the film technique I'm talking about.

My pick: Rorschach flings the hot grease at his assailant in prison.

No fair picking moments we've already seen ramped in the trailer.

in some desperate hour lies cold hands. you bastards. i can’t see you. and i’m tired of trying. to die. to live in some dream. it’s so dark here now. there are no songs for inspiration. no light. i told you all i’ll break myself for clarity. i wonder about you, “Little Boy Black”. no reason to try, but there’s some animal magnetism. fighting and biting. trying to glue me to you. your liquidated eyes. and i seem such a fool, but i can’t play too carefully, cause i don’t want you to see me. don’t want you to know me. it’s too easy to be safe in others lies. still, i thought i saw something i knew in your eyes. cold blue whirlpool. i could need you, but you’re something more real. and i could swear i know you. just stained, dark memories. and i don’t know how to feel. and you look at me like that. so cold, so calm. i’m the emotional monster and i guess you’ll never know that my hands are porcelain and my eyes are fire. and my heart breathes irregular. i look to see you, barely there. so perfect, a picture. and it could all be destroyed with one careless move of my shaking hand.

I have to say, I have faith that this could be really good. The reports of the twenty minutes of footage several people got to see were uniformly excellent. They described the speed ramping as capturing a moment the way the frame of a comic does, rather than only being cool for cool's sake. Snyder was certainly not on my list of dream directors for this. I think Greengrass could have done something amazing. But I'm actually pretty hopeful. For now. And it's rumored there's a test screening going on Thursday night. So we're all about to find out.

Only Snyder's slow-mo fetish can distrupt the awesomeness of Watchmen. And at most that'll be a minor irritation because the story is so solid (and from the trailer he took from the book for frames anyway).

Save the monster mindfuck alien squid! The monster mindfuck alien squid is the heart of the movie!!! (don't tell me if/if not he's there, I only half-saw the post above).

i dont know what script you're talking about. All signs, interviews, and reports have pointed to the ending being the same, with the possible exception of the squid.

Actually, I think Snyder changed it to be more true to the comic. I'm pretty sure Greengrass was going to a modern setting War-On-Terror motif with Jude Law as nite-owl, and Synder set it back to the 80s with Nixon in his 5th term. Never thought that the 300 guy would be better than the Boune guy, but maybe that happened.

I'm aware of how he would have approached the adaptation, yes. I'm far less concerned with faithfulness to the source material than I am about great storytelling. And I believe the rumors involved Law as Ozy.

I read from one of the sites that saw the preview that the jail fight scene was slow-mo'd and extended, but well done. I think it was aintitcool or cinematical.
