While browsing at the Science Fiction Book Club I ran across the DVD of Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter. Being an old-school Watchmen fan my interest was piqued so I looked to our Google overlords for guidance and the first hit was IGN: Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter Review.
This did a good job of summarizing the DVD and I think I may end up buying it once I’ve seen the actual movie. Yes, I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t seen it yet. I must be getting old since I heard it was a bit long and I figured I may as well watch it on my home theater instead.
I really liked the summary at the end of the article:
Whatever your feelings about the theatrical adaptation, this DVD serves as a terrific supplement to the Watchmen franchise. Those fans who weren’t totally satisfied with it may just find some consolation here, while the newly converted will appreciate the deeper look at the world this offers.
