I wouldn't call him hung, either, but I did love that they didn't hold back on the realism there. I got to see this at the Aclight Dome which is a very big, but not Imax big, screen in LA and thought it was the perfect medium to enjoy Manhattan in all his manly glory!

I really, really enjoyed the movie, but feel bad for people who went in without reading the book. On its own, I don't think the film holds up. Too much back story, not enough short cuts for the sake of non-fans, but hey, I can't complain about that. Highlights for me were the opening credits, score, and definitely Rorschach! I was really in awe during the jail interrogation how spot-on his performance was. He out performed the rest of the cast by leaps and bounds.

Yeah, the people I went with hadn't read the book, and I think they enjoyed it, but it also kind of dragged for them.

I read in an interview somewhere that Zack Snyder and the animators auditioned over twenty different sizes for Dr. Manhattan's package. Too small, and Billy Crudup would have been embarrassed, too large, and it would have just been freakish.

I've seen Dr. Manhattan's goods on a typical screen, IMAX, and a DLP mega screen :-/
