For what reason/s do you want to watch and/or keep watching
(whatever your serious or humorous definition/s of that is)
the Watchmen in comic and/or movie form and please say why.

It's a fascinating and multi-layered story with perfectly defined characters. Every time I read the book or watch the movie, I find something new that I hadn't noticed before. It's thought-provoking and it raises engaging topics of conversation. It's pretty much everything I like to see in any form of entertainment.

Well, it's a great example of a comic and a comic film, and a film overall. That's why.

Keeps making me think. Personally, the story has always intrigued me, but I love watching movies like this over and over because I am a detail whore. I catch things on the 27th viewing that I didn't catch before, and I like to pause and look at things deeper to see if there's anything there that I can make out. Today, I finally read the SQUID anagram during Laurie and Jon's fight while Jon was sending the device to Adrian at Karnak.

Sub
Quantum
Unified
Intrinsic field
Device

Didn't notice that before, and I've watched the movie through twice, once at the theater and once at home. Just going over it again today, and finally paused it to look at what it said. That's why I keep watching it, the subject matter intrigues me, and things I missed before I can see again later.

I agree with everyone here. It's a complex, multi-layered story where everytime you read or see it, you find something new. It always makes great conversation. I mean, we're on a website dedicated to talk about it.

I personally think it is one of the best adaptions of a comic since Spiderman,cos it was done by someone that understands the fan base, oh and I have watched it ten times so far and it just keeps getting better,in my opinion that is
