Paul Blart: Mall Cop VS Watchmen

Paul Blart vs Watchmen

I think Paul Blart is getting the edge and winning if compared against Watchmen!

A thread like this was even created during its opening weekend:

Weekend Box Office: 1/16-1/19 "You Wont Believe What's No. 1" Edition


But in reality

Paul Blart Beats the Heck out of Watchmen.

Yeah financially it wins. But creatively Paul Blartt is a creatively bankrupt piece of cinematic excrement while Watchmen aspires for something more than mere entertainment. It doesnt always succeed but when it does it it makes the risk of adapting the novel into a film worthwhile..

Is this really surprising to anyone? Paul Blart is a PG rated movie that you can take your kids to. Watchmen is a R rated hardcore movie based on a graphic novel that many are unaware of. It's not surprising which one is doing better.

Are you going to collect every DVD of Paul Blart that is released? Maybe it'll rival your Saw collection.

Does Kevin James wear a blue uniform in Blart? If so, it's two movies about big blue ding dongs ...

Before I opened this post I set an O/U of 3 for how many posts it would take until someone would resort to this cliche. It never fails.

What the hell are you talking about??

Not only is that the regular weekly thread but it wasn't even created to compare the 2 movies. I think the fumes from all your DVD cases are getting to you.

It'll never happen. That thread would have some logic behind its existence.

In the OP's defense: There have been a few posts in the weekly BO threads ripping Paul Blart (and the audience for the movie) for being a big hit and there are some posters annoyed with the fact that Watchmen will make much less.

I agree that the comparasion is stupid (PG family flick vs. R-Rated comic book movie) but it's not like he was the first to mention the two movies in the same sentence.

No No.. its not that.

Paul Blart sure beats Watchmen.

I think even if you ask Allan Moore (The creator of Watchmen), between the two what would he watch? = He will answer you "Paul Blart"

Paul Blart was borderline unwatchable, Watchmen was an entertaining way to kill 3 hours.

Box office wise who knows, movie wise Watchmen without question.

You know, Shawshank Redemption only made $28 million domestically, but there's no way I'd ever agree that Paul Blart "beats" it.
