Morning, kids! You’re about to watch the new Watchmen trailer attached to Quantum of Solace (assuming you haven’t watched it a few hundred times already). It actually features the plot and the characters talking?a big change from the previous high-speed montage ttrailer?and while I don’t think it’s going to make the haters change their mind, for the lovers, there’s a whole lot to love.GiantSquidGate notwithstanding, this movie seems terrifyingly accurate to the graphic novel, which is kind of stunning in it’s own right. You know. I find it very funny that I seem to believe you’re even reading these words?you’re just rewatching the damn trailer. Shit fuck poop! See? You don’t even notice.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
