Under the Hood
2009
This delectably dark animated short tells the gruesome tale of a shipwrecked sailor (voiced by Gerard Butler) forced to go to horrific lengths -- including building a raft of corpses -- to return home and warn his family of an imminent attack by an evil pirate ship. Based on a story within the graphic novel Watchmen, this release was originally part of the script for director Zack Snyder's 2009 live-action adaptation of the comic book.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Zack Snider indulges his bloodlust in this short film drawn from the Watchmen mythos, a parable that was intended to inform the larger novel but in Snider's hands becomes a grim orgy of unspeakable violence. That would be fine if it were good.

Scott Hardie: “It sucked.”

Another short film made from Watchmen leftovers, this fake documentary explores the uninteresting 1940s superheroes from the novel's backstory. It frequently gets in its own way with TV newsmagazine verisimilitude, often distracting from itself.
