This movie is based on an Eisner Award winning graphic novel (an Eisner is the comic book world's version of an Oscar).

It amazes me that after 10 years of H-Wood making comic book adaptations, only ONE director has had the common sense to realize "Hey, the pictures in this comic book, they're exactly like a storyboard. Oh, I know, I'll just tell my DP to shoot the movie just like it looks in the book! And hey, while I'm at it, I can tell my screenwriter to just copy and paste all the dialog from the speech balloons into the script! Why, this is going to be the easiest adaptation ever!".

But no, instead they have to take only bits and pieces from the source material and make stuff up as they go along, and as a result, we get a crappy movie. UGH!

It might actually have to come down to that.

I just found out this film is supposed to be a crime thriller. Now I'm interested. I thought it would be like "The Thing" or something.

No, it's not a horror movie, it's supposed to be a serious crime drama/thriller that takes place in Antarctica. But it appears critics aren't buying the "serious drama" part.

Plus, how seriously can you take a movie that has random scenes of Kate Beckinsale walking around in her underwear for no apparent reason other than T&A?

And yet people still managed to complain that Watchmen was too faithful to the comic and book.

Yeah, I heard rumors they were going to do another remake of John Carpenter's The Thing, and I thought this was it. Thankfully it wasn't. But it still doesn't matter, because this movie looks like crap!

If by "too faithful", you mean "too long and complex for the average ADHD movie goer who can only follow Michael Bay's simple and to the point movies", then I guess you're right.

I take it you mean "exactly" and you were just taking a stab at teenagers and their obsession with misspelling words while text messaging?
