Watchmen Movie

Considering the track record of Alan Moore adaptations, I'm not sure about a Watchmen movie. And the original comic is very much the product of the 1980s, and I'm not sure how an adaptation that tries to bring it into the modern day would work -- and I can't see it being done as a period piece either.

Same thing goes for V for Vendetta -- but that might be a little bit easier. And since they're using the Gunpowder Plot in their original tagline, there's at least some reason to think they haven't done something silly like move it to America.

(The less said about Constantine the better as far as those sorts of translations go. But oddly, I'm hearing that movie is alright, if you aren't familiar with the original character.)
