Taking place in an dark alternate reality mid-80’s setting with Nixon serving a fifth term and where super heroes are forced into retirement, Watchmen explores a dark side of masked crusaders usually unseen in comics. Many of the characters seem to come right of the pages, especially Jackie Earle Haley’s disturbing performance of Rorschach who gets addition dialogue directly from the comics in this version. Whether or not you’ve seen the film (or read the comic for that matter) the Watchman Director’s Cut will impress you with a well developed story, extended flashbacks, and more violence.

Unzip your coat and have some mulled wine on the house—you’ve arrived at your final gifting destination: The Holiday Gift Guide. It’s like your friendly neighborhood one-stop holiday shop, except instead of balsa wood ornaments, ours is packed with thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list. Future heirlooms, small-but-significant stocking stuffers, and gear for getting out there (or staying in)—are all right here. There’s no music playing in the background though, so you’ll just have to hum Bing Crosby while you click around instead.
