Two long anticipated events are making their debut tomorrow: Watchmen the movie and Opulent Temple Massive.
Watchmen , for those of you that aren’t familiar with it, is a Marvel movie which is part action, part drama, all fantasy/sci fi. Diehard fans: this movie is coming out tonight at midnight.
Watchmen is a comic book that was illustrated by Dave Gibbons and written by Alan Moore. Director Zach Snyder and screen writers David Hayter and Alex Tse transformed this great comic into an awesome film.
“Watchmen” is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion – a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers – Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity… but who is watching the Watchmen?” (quote from imdb. )
This movie is rated R and runs for 163 minutes.
Second most awesome thing on my to do list is Opulent Temple Massive. This amazing event is sponsored by, you guessed it, Opulent Temple Massive. . It will be held on Treasure Island from 9 pm until 4 am. The event will be presenting the famous Carl Cox and over 30 spectacular djs. Tickets are $40 and 100% of the proceeds go to Opulent Temple’s aspirations for ’09. I had gotten my ticket a month in advance and I peeing my pants in excitement. This is going to be the shit.
Have a great Friday mis amigos.
