‘Watchmen’ critics race to review

Film causes online frenzy

This year’s race to review a film first is revving up, with “Watchmen” being the latest pic to cause an online frenzy among bloggers.

Eager evaluators like Nerdworld blogger Matt Selman wrote about the film as early as Feb. 16 for Time Magazine.com. Selman claimed he was able to sidestep any Warner Bros.’ review timetables because his piece wasn’t actually a review and instead was just his thoughts on “the emotional experience of seeing a piece of literature with which I have an intense personal connection literally come to life.”

This was soon followed by Mike Ragogna’s lengthy Feb. 20 posting on the Huffington Post and Devin Faraci’s piece Wednesday on CHUD.com where he boldly states that helmer Zack Snyder “has crafted a movie that flirts with honest to God greatness.”
