Has anyone seen both the IMAX and general-release versions of Watchmen? ->

I'm trying to decide which version to see and searching Google for direct comparisons, clearly stating how the IMAX version differs from the large-release version, is, well, let's just say it's not something that runs like clockwork.
was the IMAX version recomposited to fit the IMAX aspect ratio (a la Apollo 13 IMAX)?,
was the film been treated more like the recent Dark Knight film?
The Dark Knight II Electric Boogaloo (or whatever the official title may be) was shown in the standard wide screen ratio until certain set-piece FX sequences were presented in the IMAX format and once the set-piece sequence was completed the film returned to the standard ratio.
Please to hope me, film geeks!
