PM it to me.


Didn't you hear me? The answer's no.


Ok, sorry. Did I do something to offend you?

No illegal music sharing on this forum please. That's why.

But Smiley makes a good point AYB. It's like you announcing that you have cupcakes and then telling everyone they can't have one. Keep it to yourself next time.

I wonder if it wouldn't have worked better to have this track open the movie instead of close it out. I still think it's yucky, but if it had to be used, it might work better elsewhere in the film. Even during the film, as background. You know, a "harm reduction" kind of approach.

All they did was take the lyrics from the Bob Dylan version and assume MCR was keeping everything. They're obviously not though, I'm pretty sure they'll be cutting more than half of the lyrics.

Wait...remember how Gerard Way said his song was "integral" to Watchmen's ending?

What if...what if the Knot-Tops are rocking out to this song/Pale Horse as the Jonergy detonates, while the song extends over the Jonergy bombs causing devastation (Or...desolation?) everywhere? It'd make sense in context of the film, and manages to fit the "integral ending" Way was talking about.

...although personally, I'd want an epic/orchestral track playing as the Jonergy bombs go off instead of this song. But maybe that's just me.

:o bastard



I really don't like the sounds, I thought "Oh I'll give them the BotD, but they proved they don't desrve it, Does anyone know if there was some copyright thing preventing the original Dylan song? because if not it just seems foolish to uses a new version, the only one I'd consider (a new version) is Hendrix's "All along the Watchtower" but that's probably just me...

When ever I read the book, I picture complete and utter silence from the end of the 35 minutes ago panel until Jon's line in chapter 12, maybe wind blowing during the squid, but no music, nothing except the reader (viewer) and the squid (and the countless bodies)

That would be pretty cool. What I would prefer over the bombs going off would be like a siren (like in The Dark Knight). Then they could flash to the shocked faces of everyone on the street, like in the novel. Then I would pan through the destruction (like in the novel) over "The Sound of Silence" or something.

Oh, undoubtedly. Scarily enough, you described the exact way I imagined sound in XII, complete with "maybe wind blowing". :? Just utter destruction with no one alive for a certain radius.

With the movie though, I expect something different, what with the bombs being set off all over the world instead of just New York. But if over-the-top orchestral music is too much for some people during the destruction, I'd be fine with a single, solemn piano tune playing to really hammer home the moment.

Hm, preferably that sad piano piece that plays at the beginning of the Watchmen TV spots. That'd be perfect.

My Chemical Romance as Pale Horse killed by the explosion? I hope so.

The song is not bad, but it would be better in Spiderman 4.

Haha, that's exactly how I imagine the beginning of Chapter 12 too. Something about the way Gibbons drew it...

Just a thought...

Why not use "The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning" as the end credits song?

1) People love that song from its use in the trailer
2) The title ties in with the end of Watchmen and "Nothing ever ends."

Done.

Since when was this track moved to anywhere but the credits? We know what ends the movie so would the morons who can't be bothered to keep track of things on here, either stop posting completely or start acting like you're not a bunch of newbs and educate yourselves.

We'll have all the epic bizness then we get the final scenes ending on the reach for Rorschach's journal, right?? BANG, cut to 'Desolation Row'.

Whatever your thoughts of whether this is a masterpiece of music, sonically, it's going to work.

Calm down. People were just specualting whether the song might *possibly* be used elsewhere in the film.

True dat. Instantly recognizable to people who were introduced to "Watchmen" through the TDK trailer, and for the second reason you already listed. Is there some rule where you can't use film trailer music in the film itself? I mean, if you already paid for the rights to it then why not stick it in the film, especially with TBITEITB?

I know several of my friends who were disappointed that they didn't hear "Just Like You Imagined" in "300", for instance.

And I know I was pissed when I didn't hear Paper Planes in Pineapple Express... :)
