A. O. Scott and Ebert, my two favorite film reviewers, split on WATCHMEN. Ebert gushed like I haven't seen him do in ages, and Scott said it was all pretty adolescent, stupid, irrelevant angst that we all might have thought was cool in 1985 when we were 19.

Now, not that I follow reviews for things like this that I'm definitely going to see either way, but it's still daunting to go in with such ambivalence hanging over one, especially when I'm going to plunk down the forty bucks for IMAX tickets. (My son and I both appreciate the IMAX effect; I'm much more ambivalent about 3D and don't usually bother paying the extra for that.)
