Watchmen

Satire vs. Parody

Satire vs. Parody

Wisecrack illustrates the difference between satire and parody using Watchmen for the former and One Punch Man for the latter. Both subvert and criticize, but satire seeks to invalidate its subject while parody ultimately seeks to improve it.

(PG-13) “Soon the Watchmen start getting watched too hard, prompting the emo one to start a Livejournal.” Wisecrack’s alien film critic provides a lighthearted summary of Watchmen and Ozymandias, Rorschach and Dr. Manhattan’s brands of morality.

One of the best head sculpts we’ve ever seen, Hot Toys’ 1:6 scale, 12″ The Comedian does justice to our favorite Watchmen character with five weapons, a cigar, and full body harness.

We tried our best to ignore it, but Dr. Manhattan’s Pants brings the glowing blue dude’s conspicuous lack of apparel front and center; best line: “Put Ozymandias’ pants back on now!”
