Watchmen

Left: Watchmen (movie) Right: Watchmen (graphic novel)

Going to the movies is kinda like falling in love: Sometimes you’re going to get your heart broken.

This has definitely been the case for us with both Zack Snyder’s Watchmen and J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 (among more than a few others, M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN.) So this month, we pinpoint exactly what it was that disappointed us so profoundly with these two movies, from extreme homage-paying to poor adaptability while transitioning from source material to screen.

What other movies have left you disappointed? Tell us all about your heartache in the comments, or share on Twitter or Facebook.
