Just the once, I never see a movie more than once at theatres, i've never been one for re-watching movies anyway, and having to pay for the privilege does not appeal to me.

I think once in theaters, at home I must've watched once or twice more.

I also didn't even pay for it, I had coupons :D

I think I went to see it for 3 times? Two times with a friend and one time alone.

Zero.

I was 11 when it came out, which is why I opted to read it instead. Couldn't stand not seeing a new superhero movie.

Damn book changed me, tell you what. Finally saw the movie for the first time years later and, surprisingly, not only was it awesome, but also it had a better ending than the book IMO.

Yikes. That's a pretty bold stance to take and I can't wait to get into a discussion about it.

Welcome aboard!

It is kind of bold, but I can totally see the argument. The movie ending certainly feels a bit more cohesive than the book's.

I've stuck to my guns and never bothered watching the movie. I am, however, aware of what the movie's ending entails and am willing to concede the point that maybe having Doctor Manhattan be Adrian's scapegoat works within the context of said film. I don't know. I'll take your word for it.

However, I will happily defend the book's ending. If you are willing to accept that a running subtext of Watchmen is a commentary on and brief history of the state of the comics industry up to and including the eighties (and why wouldn't you?), then having a giant alien appear and kill half of New York makes complete sense. It is also a pretty great homage to the gore-laden EC-style horror comics of the fifties, and a witty commentary on the trope of the scheming mad scientist arch-villain. Like the book itself, it's an amazingly layered thing.
