A capsule review

most of it is such a carbon copy of the book that some of what alan’s saying gets across by accident. it’s kind of like someone with no sense of humour retelling a joke he heard once. some lines are taken out of context and you remember them from the book so you KNOW they’re a good line, you KNOW they made sense and had a purpose once but without that it’s probably just another ‘i gave birth to the 20th century’.

That’s Haley Campbell, daughter of the esteemed Eddie, talking about Watchmen. I still haven’t seen Watchmen, but oddly enough, what she says there is almost exactly my review of Coraline.
