Who would you rather do?

Two trailers just hit the web and they have a lot in common. "Watchmen" is based on "the most acclaimed graffic novel of all time" and directed by "300" vet Zack Snyder. "300" was based on a graphic novel my Frank Miller who scribes and directs "The Spirit".  It looks like we have two artsy comic book movies to look forward to that don't start with Bat or end with Man. I think "Watchmen" has the edge here. Better source material, more accomplished director and it just plain looks incredible. "The Spirit" has some good things going for it (including ScarJo) but the effects look almost too good, like how the hell is all that going to make a cohesive story? Judge for yourself...
