What I'm saying is that I feel that the movie doesn't need the Tales of the Black Freighter parts because of how it's structured. Although, it slipped my mind that it would clear up that Rorschach is the man with the sign.

I missed that part in the bar. I know they filmed it ([livejournal.com profile] pyat mentioned that there's scenes of it in the Japanese trailer) and it's going in the extended edition, but it seems bizarre that they cut it out for the current release when it's a major part of Dan's character arc.

Tears for Fears song was the Everybody Wants to Rule the World bit. I've heard people complain about the music in the last sex scene. That wasn't the part that I felt was awkward. I'm thinking of when Laurie slams the button of the flame thrower at the end.

The Architects of Fear isn't in the backstory notes (I THINK), but it's why an episode of The Outer Limits shows up in comic and the movie. It's such a bizarre little reference.

Well, I don't think Dr. Manhattan would ever come back in the comic version either. I'm under the impression that that's when he more or less became God. Earth was home to far too many emotional entanglements and heartbreak and there was no way for him to live their happily ever again. Also, with the cancer scandal, I think it dawned of him that he was immortal and that he'd be witness to everyone he loved and cared about dying. Hell, he would KNOW when they died.

I liked the comic's ending with Laurie and Dan, because it proved that Dan was a massive fanboy (which, granted, IS mentioned in the movie depending on how you read Sally's comment about the man who writes to her) and there's an odd sidenote with Laurie. A lot of people read her comments about her plans for a new costume as a final acceptance of the Comedian as her father. While she doesn't approve of the actions of him and her mother mostly because it means that her mother is emotionally messed in the head, it's the final push to get Laurie moving out from living in her mother's shadow, taking matters into her own hands and becoming a full person in her own right. Which is another thing that I'm curious if it's in extended edition, because there's one or two lines in the film about it, but it was the heart of her character arc in the comic.
