So Watchmen, right? With the sex and the music and the misguided sex scene music? DJ Steve and I will each have our full review up sometime in the next 24 hours, but suffice it to say the movie is… interesting, and certainly provokes discussion of a number of topics, cinematic or otherwise.

Before we dive headfirst into the navel-gazing stuff, we figured it’d be good to place the movie in its larger cultural context. Most everyone knows that Watchmen draws its story from Alan Moore’s 1986 miniseries. But did you know that Zack Snyder’s latest film is also a shot-for-shot remake of an even more recent work?

There is nothing new under the sun.
