I just read the Watchmen comic for the first time this summer and really liked it. I want to watch the movie with a friend, but I’d prefer to skip the sex or nudity-heavy scenes, provided they don’t contain relevant plot points that are hard to explain. (My friend has never read the comic, so I don’t want him to miss important details unless I can easily summarize them.)
That being said, I have two questions:
- Which scenes do you think I can skip without missing anything important?
- If a scene is important but also graphic, is the dialogue more important than what’s happening onscreen? (If so, I can just black out the screen.)
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
