Who Watches the Critics?

While I haven't yet seen the movie, Anthony Lane gets his snarl up in a snarky review of the film adaptation of Moore and Gibbons' masterpiece, The Watchmen.

I'm not sure why he feels the need to spend so much time busting on comix fans, but it's not becoming, and his lack of faith in what is almost universally acknowledged as a very interesting and intelligent comic book is telling in that I doubt that he ever gave the movie a chance. I'll be doing so on the 12th. I'll report back then.

UPDATE: I'm not the only one that feels this way.
