And from Patton via his MySpace BLOG:
â€œYouâ€™re all going to go see it, you resentful nerd mafiosi. And youâ€™ll walk in rolling your eyes and youâ€™ll walk out whistling sadly through your teeth because the fuel of the Nerd Mafia is disappointment and exclusion.
Tell you what â€” before you go and see THE WATCHMEN, plunk down and watch CATWOMAN, GHOST RIDER and DAREDEVIL. And use those seven hours (and donâ€™t pretend like you donâ€™t have seven free hours in your day) to get out all of your disgust and the-world-owes-me-my-daydreams-made-real attitude you strut around with.
Because Zack Snyder STEPPED UP, motherfâ€“kers….”
“…Because Zack Snyder STEPPED UP, motherfâ€“kers. THE WATCHMEN was going to get made, one way or another. And instead of bleating on his Facebook status updates or Tweeting about how shâ€“ty the upcoming adaptationâ€™s going to be, he TOOK THE BULLET and tried to do it right. Yes, THE WATCHMEN should be a limited series on HBO and blah blah blah IT WAS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN THAT WAY. Zack delivered a 2 1/2 hour, honest attempt, and broke his ass cranking out tons of free extras. Hell, he even animated The Tales of The Black Freighter for you chumps. Plus, he gave you a kick-ass DAWN OF THE DEAD remake, plus 300, plus whatever else heâ€™s got coming down the pike. Heâ€™s the best friend the Nerd Mafiaâ€™s had since Joss Whedon and Brian Michael Bendis, so everyone please crack the tab on a frosty can of Go Fâ€“k Yourself and go see the movie version of THE WATCHMEN.â€
