At least one thing didn't live up to the hype...
Having now seen the screen adaptation of Watchmen, I have to say that I'm a little disappointed that Dr. Manhattan's Big Blue WangTM was not nearly the distraction that everyone's made it out to be.

The Big Blue Dong will haunt your dreams and fill your waking hours with discomfort and ennui.

It registered at the same level as the ubiquitous graffiti. Sure, you knew it was there, but unless you're completely obsessed with either storyboard details or dick, it was just part of the scenery.

Until you wake up screaming, the image of a glowing blue dong etched into your terror drenched mind...

I think you may have me confused with Scottie.

It's not like Big Blue Wang is some kind of Lovecraftian horror. It's a just wang that happens to be blue.

Yes, that would have involved a mass of no less than 12 dongs that moved of their own accord.

That sounds more like Hentai tentacle porn.

Isn't that what Cthulhu was based upon?

Much like Apache Chief

I was similarly unimpressed with the big reveal in The Crying Game, though there, I think I figured out the Big Secret long before most of the audience did.

Dude has bits, and they're blue. Time to move on.

I maintain the reason a huge deal was made about the big blue wang has to do with the fact that it was the only real frontal nudity. Two VERY brief nipple shots don't count.

Even if there had been long languishing shots of nipples, I'm pretty sure folks would still be talking about Big Blue Wang.

Dunno. Maybe we missed something for not having seen it in IMAX.
