The Rorschach Test

This actually looks like it might be quite good: http://watchmenmovie.warnerbros.com/

Visually faithful to the graphic novel, anyway.

Alan Moore is famously critical of all the film adaptations of his books, though I don't think they've been that bad - V for Vandetta in particular was pretty good I thought.

I noticed that his name is mentioned nowhere on the website, although Dave Gibbons's, who drew it, is. Fair enough - presumably he got some cash for the rights. The director also did that 300 thing, which I think is also based on an Alan Moore comic - and was supposed to be visually interesting but pretty dumb, so Watchmen will probably be the same.
