Hey! Wanna see the deleted scene of Nite Owl I Hollis Mason getting beaten to death by punks, a scene to be included in the Watchmen Director’s Cut DVD that’s due out in two weeks? Let me put it this way — if you enjoyed the movie, you’ll likely enjoy this. If you disliked the movie, there’s absolutely nothing in here that will change your mind, and it probably contains more of the stuff you hated. So… do with that what you will. Thanks to Grant for the tip.
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.
