    Weekend Update: Watchmen Opening Not So Big; Kubrick's Tenth; Obama Gives Brown DVDs

    While Watchmen delivered a robust opening of about $55.7 million in North America, it came in lower than expectations--and much lower than Snyder's last film, the blockbuster 300--both domestically and overseas. Finally, Watchmen works best as the narratively complex, visually dazzling comics series from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Originally published in 1986, the graphic novel is flying off the shelves. I hope people do read the book, which instantly draws you in with its compelling, never confusing storytelling, deepening and peeling new layers as it goes.

    Wall Street Meltdown: Crisis Explained By Frank, Moore, Comedians

    Two smart British gents make fun of Wall Street hedge funds selling dodgy debt packages, and bailouts that "reward the ingenuity of the market." Very amusing. And as it's several months old, on the money, as it were.

    Dark Knight Review: Nolan Talks Sequel Inflation

    Finally, I would have preferred to see The Dark Knight in 35 mm, not IMAX. (I will go see it again when it opens July 18.)
