HP7, part 2

Saw the last HP film this afternoon and it was very good. It was the first one that actually seemed to hang together as a story instead of a set of scenes one after the other. The books didn't have that quality, so I do wonder if it was deliberate on behalf of the filmmakers. The music was wonderful, orchestral, its own character, so I've ordered the CD.

I know they needed to leave a lot out of the story, even having turned it into two films, but there was a lot left that seemed significant, not least all of the Dumbledore backstory. If I hadn't read the books, I'd have been a bit bewildered by some of it, though, and certainly wouldn't have seen the significance of a lot of the small moments.

Am now giving The Watchmen a shot (it was on last night? the night before?) and about 30 minutes in I can say that Rorschach suffers from a serious case of purple prose and I have no idea what's going on. Although, huh, naked blue dude. Yeah, no, this is really dull.
