|Totally missing the point...

I have never heard of this moron before now. But she reviews Watchmen as if it's meant to be targeted at children. No one really thinks any action figures made from this movie are targeted for the kiddies, it's for adult fans who like collectibles, etc.
I'm not the biggest fan of Watchmen, I hate Rorschach; however, I happened to like the overall plot and would probably enjoy the graphic novel more. But this is the epitome of COMPLETELY MISSING THE POINT! Guh...as a fan of DEEP and INTELLIGENT stories in comics and superhero-related media, this is a smack in the face! Oh noes!
THEN there's the whole controversy over Doc Manhattan's suspension bridge (hur hur). Look, men have penises. For whatever reason, in western society, we've reached a point where to some people, nudity and genitalia are so offensive, they'll nearly kill over it. And this boggles my mind. Because this is something we're ALL born with (the men, at least; and then, ladies have their own equally covered parts), and I'm not one to believe God's gonna cry if we don't stay covered up. GET OVER THE FEAR OF PENIS!
I suppose, in conclusion, that I don't like people who act like this: they see something and attack it from the wrong angle, and won't admit they're wrong no matter HOW many times they're shown to the contrary.
(Thank TVTropes for me coming across that article. Damn, TVTropes will ruin your life.)
