I could watch em over and over (and will no doubt do so again and again when the DVD is out).

The things I can remember (spoilers maybe below):

Sally on steps with cops and newspaper headline
Miss Jupiter/Enola Gay plane about to drop atomic bomb
Armstrong landing on the moon - Doc Manhattan taking photos
Jet fighters above Fidel Castro and Russian leaders in Moscow
The Silhouette kissing the nurse on the streets
Pregnant Sally's farewell Watchmen party featuring Silhoutte and Nurse
Silhouette and lover dead in bed with bloody graffiti 'Lesbian Whores'
Dollar Bill dead - his cape tangled in the revolving door
Mothman being dragged into a psychiatric ambulance, kicking and biting
Andy Warhol exhibiting his Nite Owl paintings
Ozymandias with Bowie, Jagger, Village People outside Studio 54
Cop discovering two bodies tied to hydrant with 'Rorschach' calling card

That's about all I can remember - any more???

Awesome opening sequence. Probably my favorite part of the movie. Loved "The Times They Are A-Changing."

I didn't cry but I had goosebumps throughout the entire 4 or 5 minutes. Nearly a case of jizz in my pants..

They really should get an Academy Award.

PS - Thanks to those picking up things I missed. Will have to take a pad and pen next time! :)

I watched it with a stupid smile on my face but in return I was literally trembling for a good minute during the "DO IT" part.

Indeed I do agree with fspades. Stupid grin was perpetual in my entire viewing. Ditto with the Rorschach.

Every single shot was perfect and subtly humourous in the opening montage, and the homage to stock footage was brilliant. I kind of only glanced at them however, because I was stunned by the previous shot.

Hear that?

That's the sound of a joke going over someone's head.

EDIT: I left this here to be a reminder on when to shut your mouth and troll elsewhere on a subject you've only known about for 3 hours. :(

And there is more to it. Look at the posters in the background second time. I promise you, your mind will blow. :lol:

Just remembered another couple:

* Nite Owl II setting automatic camera to photograph the Watchmen group
* TV showing Nixon being elected for third time
* Riot scene, Who watches the watchmen graffiti and molotov cocktail thrown into shop window

but I certainly can't remember any Mr and Mrs Wayne..

This was discussed already before and if I rememebr this is just injoke - they cant be Mr and Mrs Wayne since there is a poster of batman on the wall in that scene or something like this.
