I have the Director's Cut of the film, and honestly, while I may purchase this thing based solely on how F****** gorgeous the set looks, there really is no need to buy this thing. If you DON'T have the Director's Cut, then buy THIS version, but really, there is no way that just by adding in Tales of The Black Freighter (a solid animated film and key part of the graphic novel), that it can make Watchmen all that much more intriguing. That said, or 44$, this is easily the best bang for your buck in terms of Watchmen. However, if I didn't know about that Criterion Collection releases DVD's, I would say it's a great value overall. While I love Watchmen, simply go buy the Director's Cut, and save up some money for say, A Woman is A Woman on Criterion. Just my humble opinion.

Go see something good!
