"I solemnly swear: if Watchmen ends up on the list of great movies that almost made it, I will be leading the charge to make Fox PAY. I will slam every one of the crap movies and TV shows they put out, and use every bit of my blogger-power (it's about 3/4 as potent as flower-power) to downright brainwash every suggestible reader into boycotting any movie released by 20th Century Fox until Watchmen sees the light of day," Vic Holtreman of ScreenRant.com writes. "(Sorry Wolvy, you'll be my first victim. Just to let these stuffed-suits know I ain't playing!) Fox will come to learn the TRUE meaning of the word 'backfire,' and I think I speak for a great many Watchmen fans when I say that."
