"I guess for those of you watching TV it's on the right." Wha?

I love how he says "(quote) smartest man in the world" as if he's skeptical.

Alan Moore is in something way more trippy than any pedestrian Freemason organization.
My name is Ozzie Man Day Mus, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!

"All seeing Eye of Horus."
Also, if you were running a "world take over" plot, would advertise it via a movie?
The idea that I think ol' Jonesy is putting forth here is that you slip subtle ideas into movies such as this so people dismiss it largely as entertainment.
However on a subconscious level it portrays something that should be absolutely atrocious as "not so bad" which is honestly how I felt after I saw the movie. I was rather pissed off that the movie ended on such a light note after all the rotten shit that happened.

This was supposed to be a multipart submission but the multipart submitting bit wasn't working for me at the time, so if that inconviences anyone except my effusive and probably needless apologies.

I love how he alternates pronunciation between Ozzy "Man" Damus and Ozymandias.
Alex Jones is a tenth degree black belt at pulling horseshit from out of the sky and loudly proclaiming it truth. Like, for instance, the man who wrote From Hell being a Freemason.
|IrishWhiskey - 2009-03-24 |
-2 for the video being half a repeat of the trailer, +1 for his inability to pronounce Ozymandias.
|boggy84 - 2009-03-24 |
He starts by telling us that he doesn't read comic books because he's a SERIOUS SCHOLAR OF HISTORY, and then immediately goes on to impose his comic book fantasy worldview onto an fairly sophisticated and ambiguous piece of fiction. Dude's got an analytical brain to put Ozzymandymus to shame.

Say what you will, the comic book does not end the same way.
Considering this: http://io9.com/5059892/watchmen-movie-was-almost-about-the-war-on- terror
The ending in my opinion was rather disturbingly sympathetic to the concept of false-flag terrorism. I came to this conclusion entirely on my own, I'm actually surprised others did.
The fact that one of the end sequences shows a shot of what looked to me like a large scale replica of ground zero, with a strategically placed billboard overlooking it in the foreground that said: "In your heart, you know it was right", bothered the shit out of me.
Conspiracy or not, it's a disturbing barometer for how society has adjusted to what happened.
The ending isn't implicitly sympathetic to false flag terror. The ending is a question of whether it's right or not. The viewer is left to decide how they feel about it. Though they did kill the one character who felt like you.
And the Ozymandias plot is a lot more morally ambiguous than the 9-11 attacks (whatever you believe) so it's a much tougher moral dilemma.
I really hope they concoct a sequel just to explore what happens when Ozymandias' scare tactics eventually run dry...
Kinda like the US losing its patience with Iraqnam & Rudy "9/11" Giuliani...
No, Night Owl gets the last word. He says Ozzy mutated the course of human history, and that's what pivotal acts of violence do. The movie finishes with the unraveling of it all. Rorschach's integrity lead to a record which falls into the hands of the public press. Nothing ever ends. Humanity must refine itself etc etc. The film/comic DOES NOT promote false flag terrorism.

Alan Moore's a Mason? What does Glycon think of this?
|fatatty - 2009-03-24 |
I wonder how much he gets paid to hold up that book and run that trailer. I also wonder how many fans bought it to find the Illuminati secrets.
|kingarthur - 2009-03-25 |
Alan's not in The Illuminati. They're far too permissive with their membership policy. He's got his own little cabal involving Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison, David J, and several ill-tempered ducks.
|kamlem - 2009-03-25 |
I can't believe he didn't make the connection between Night Owl and Bohemian Grove! You're losing it, Alex!
|Space Helicopter - 2009-03-25 |
He goes on to say that Moore also wrote 'The Sandman' and that the Russia-Georgia war was supposed to spark WWIII because it happened on 8-8-08 and the Illuminati loves their numbers.
So stay tuned this September for some big event related to a grand coverup to happen.
|The God of Biscuits - 2010-08-11 |
so tell me, is there anything that is NOT a conspiracy?
