Who is spitting venom all over the Watchmen movie? 20th Century Fox, as they try to stop the movie from being released? Incensed fans, convinced it won't live up to the hype? The Comedian, always causing trouble? Nope, it's the graphic novel's creator, Alan Moore, who's as convinced as ever that the movie will not only be bad, but never should have been made to begin with.

"There are these legal problems now, which I find wonderfully ironic," Moore told The Los Angeles Times, apparently gleeful at the notion that the film will never come out. "Perhaps it's been cursed from afar, from England. And I can tell you that I will also be spitting venom all over it for months to come."

Appropriate for a man who included a giant slithering beast at the end of his most lauded effort, he compared modern films to worms-- not just that, but regurgitated worms. "It is as if we are freshly hatched birds looking up with our mouths open waiting for Hollywood to feed us more regurgitated worms. The Watchmen film sounds like more regurgitated worms. I for one am sick of worms. Can't we get something else? Perhaps some takeout? Even Chinese worms would be a nice change."

Normally it would pain me to see an author so unhappy with an adaptation of his work, but Alan Moore is so delightfully cranky it's almost fun to listen to him. Since it seems pretty clear he won't like the movie no matter what it is, it'll be up to us to decide if it's any good-- and avoid the venom he's spitting, of course.
