I'm still not sure why Watchmen was pilloried by so many. Considering how many adaptations are butchered by filmmakers, it was refreshing to see how closely Zack Snyder adhered to the source material by Alan Moore (except for, of course, the ending). Sure it may have been a little obtuse for people unfamiliar with the graphic novel, but so what, right? Anyway, today's DVD release is a treasure trove for Watchmen fans. For less than $30 you get the integration of The Black Freighter into Snyder's director's cut as well as:

  • Commentary from Zac Snyder and Dave Gibbons
  • The Phenomenon: The Comic That Changed Comics
  • Real Super Heroes, Real Vigilantes
  • Mechanics: Technologies of a Fantastic World
  • Watchmen: Video Journals
  • Under the Hood
  • Story Within a Story: The Books of Watchmen
  • Digital Copy of the Theatrical Version
