The Keene Act & You

I’m really not expecting the upcoming Watchmen movie to be any good.  I know it’s going to be beautiful and I know there will be half a dozen kick ass moments in the film but, ultimately, I’m expecting them to fuck up at least one or two story essentials so bad that it will ruin...
