I'm not going to watch the Watchmen

Watchmen movie poster

I've a very short attention span.

Watching long movies is a problem for me. At the one hour mark into The Dark Knight, I looked at the time, wondering when the movie was going to end. The Lord of the Ring movies proved difficult for me too.

The Watchmen movie is 163 minutes. That effectively rules the movie out for me, regardless of how good it is. Maybe I'll just grab the DVD when it comes out.

On a side note, I just caught Slumdog Millionaire last week. It's a brilliant movie. It totally deserve all the Oscars it won.

The film is sort of like a rags-to-riches story set in the slums of Mumbai. The slums felt real. The struggles every character had in the movie felt real. And most importantly, the story felt real.

If you've watch City of God and liked it, do not miss Slumdog Millionaire. It's as good.

It's 120 minutes but I have absolutely no problem if I have to watch it again.
