As a big WATCHMEN fan from when it first came out, when I obsessively poured over every issue over and over again to try to figure out what was happening, I'm so looking forward to this movie. It really looks like it will be the graphic novel come to life. Whether that's a good thing or not, I'm not so sure. Will it work for the non-WATCHMEN-obsessed public, I don't know.
But it's three weeks away. After that, we'll know for sure. All I know is this: I'm so there.
(ps - I did figure WATCHMEN out, for the most part, right around issue #6. It remains one of my claims to glory from my comic book days. Even though I knew what was going to happen, watching it unfold was still supremely awesome.)
