    Need help with movie rental

    I'm going to head to a red box this evening and need help chosing a movie...

    I am trying to pick between Defiance with Daniel Craig and Watchmen.

    Does anyone have a recommendation on which way I should go? Any other suggestions?

    Re: Need help with movie rental

    I read Watchmen and watched the movie. It get's a bit slow at times, but it follows the book to a T. I actually just rented Defiance today and am about to watch it. If you haven't seen Watchmen I would try it. The filming is fantastic.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    sounds like you are going to be watching a better movie than what my wife's gonna pick out.

    Re: Need help with movie rental

    i was only marginally familiar with "Watchmen" when I saw the movie and thought it was very good.

    I enjoyed Defiance. Of course, I'm a WWII nut, so take that for what it's worth.

    Ugh, I thought Defiance was slow. I don't want to disrespect the story but it felt way to Robin Hood Prince of Thieves for me.

    Re: Need help with movie rental

    I've thought about seeing Watchmen, but I haven't seen more than one movie that pushes three hours that has been able to keep my interest for that amount of time. I just can't sit still that long without feeling like I need to be doing something else. The only one that hasn't made me feel that way was Syriana.

    Re: Need help with movie rental

    Both are good movies, Watchmen is a faster 3 hours while Defiance is a longer 2 hours. I would say go with Watchmen, but I'm partial to comic book movies.

    Step Brothers was good, and Watchmen is next in line once I slog through season 1 of Big Love.

    What did we ever do before Netflix came along?

    Re: Need help with movie rental

    Am I the only one that thought that Step Brothers was a horrible, horrible excuse for a movie? I can see it being funny if you're about 12, but other than that...
