Review: Let the Right One In and Watchmen

Hop on over to Up Against the Wall to see my reviews of these two films. Yes, it’s a bit late, but it took a while to work up the energy to write anything about Watchmen.


  1. Todd Mason says:

    Well, quite aside from the spirited discussion on the Horror list. (Or perhaps I just enjoyed it since I was able to score obvious jokes off the discussion, while making my points.)

  2. K. A. Laity says:

    Well, a long line of potshots at easy targets hardly counts as a review, does it? The jokey double entendres were worth it, though.

  3. Todd Mason says:

    I dunno, I think the discussion was pretty informative, including your own outraged condemnation, and Jeff Segal and Pearce Duncan’s mildly ambivalent appreciation.Hey, tony genital jokes, my meat…um…

  4. K. A. Laity says:

    D’oh! That’s the good thing about the list: even in a off-the-cuff discussion a lot of good and often thoughtful commentary takes place. That’s why I’ve been on it for — eek! — fifteen years.Of course now I’m bound to it as secret co-owner. Mildred won’t let me quit even though I seldom do anything. It’s kind of like being Vice-President except for the lack of funerals (knock wood).You know, not to be morbid, but that’s a thing to consider. We’ve certainly had people share losses with us, but we’ve only had one list member die that I know of (raises a mug of hot chocolate to the sprightly spectre that hovers nearby whenever we think of him).So far…

    Re. Watchmen: That strange creaking sound I heard the other day was Alan Moore shrugging his shoulders.

  6. K. A. Laity says:

    We touched on it briefly during our conversation Tuesday and he really didn’t see the point, and was unsurprised that it had not come out well.
