What if they don't portray her character faithfully? Would you let that hamper your enjoyment?
Yes, but I won't be too broken up about it. I always have the manga to fall back on. I never get my expectations up too high for adaptations of properties I like.

No, you're right. The adaptation was tone-deaf and missed out on why Watchmen is a great story.

Perhaps that literal interpretation will make perfect practice for Snyder's Justice League; ya know, when they start murdering each other! :guts:

Those movies are so objectively bad, though. It can be proven using film theory, or really using whatever metric you want.

Eyes will do. Though I can understand one not caring much either if not already invested. To us it's a travesty, to Joe Anime it's just another movie, and maybe some objectively good Berserk elements, that we naturally take for granted, shine through the failure and hook people. I'm taking it as a testament to the quality of Miura's work that even when bastardized it's compelling to the uninitiated.

The staff commented on the new Berserk anime.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2016/05/11/berserk-staff-and-cast-comment-on-this-summers-new-anime

Those are just translations of the comments laid out here: http://berserk-anime.com/special/index00150000.html
Still, it's nice that NBC Universal went through the trouble of translating them for Crunchyroll, shows they care about the international audience. Although it's weird they didn't include Miura's own comment (which I posted earlier in this thread).

I'm not going to let CG hamper my enjoyment even if there's a lot of it. I'm just so very happy to see Farnese animated  :serpico:
She's a favorite of mine because I relate to her fucking up all the time,and really feel for her.  :farnese: Fingers crossed we get an official Farny figure

What if they don't portray her character faithfully? Would you let that hamper your enjoyment?

It's pretty amazing to me that AOW's become a company that just sells to the same 35 customers. What a strange business model.

I suppose it's subjective, but I felt Snyder only took the surface level adaptation of the story, without capturing the meat of what made it special.

No, you're right. The adaptation was tone-deaf and missed out on why Watchmen is a great story.

Perhaps this is why I didn't the GA arc movies as much as everyone else. I'd only been reading Berserk for about 6 months when I saw them and all I'd heard was that they were terrible, so I came out liking them.

Those movies are so objectively bad, though. It can be proven using film theory, or really using whatever metric you want.

I thought it was a really well done adaptation. I only read Watchmen once (a week before the movie came out
This is probably the reason. I've been a fanboy of the comic for a long time, so when I saw the movie I was more disappointed. Perhaps this is why I didn't the GA arc movies as much as everyone else. I'd only been reading Berserk for about 6 months when I saw them and all I'd heard was that they were terrible, so I came out liking them. I suppose it's subjective, but I felt Snyder only took the surface level adaptation of the story, without capturing the meat of what made it special.
It's a damn shame too, because in today's market of nothing but super hero films, I feel like a great Watchmen adaptation would be really good not to mention relevant considering the overarching theme of the comic.

I refuse to see anything Snyder does after he butchered Watchmen. That movie was painful to watch from beginning to end.

Other than the change to the ending, I thought it was a really well done adaptation. I only read Watchmen once (a week before the movie came out), so I'm not as intimately familiar with it as say, Berserk, but I don't really follow why it got so much hate.

Did they fix the ending in the Ultimate Cut back to the original comic ending? I think that was probably the worst thing about the movie.

No, the ultimate cut is the same, but they include the Black Freighter scenes (the director's cut doesn't have them, I think), which I think makes an already long movie feel even longer. Keep in mind that there are 3 cuts of this movie. If you've only seen the theatrical cut, you should probably at least give the director's cut a shot.
