  • Cloud Atlas- It took me forever to get through this, and I really didn't get it. It was supposed to be an 'actions cause ripples through time' kind of thing. Some of the stories were entertaining, and others put me to sleep.

    • That's disappointing. I had high hopes for this. I've got it on hold at the library, and should be getting it soonish.

      • Maybe you'll like it. Keep in mind that it's about 3 hours long.

        • I don't mind long, if it is entertaining. But if not....well, I have a hard enough time staying awake in the evenings as it is.

          • Some of the stories are entertaining, but there are a couple that seem to be randomly placed, slow-paced, and have very little to do with the overall story. Perhaps this is because it took me a week to watch the whole thing.

            • Well, at the very least, I guess it will be worth what I paid to watch it, right?

              • That's a good way to look at it. Can't argue with 'free'.

                    If they ever do end up making that Deus Ex movie, I would hope it would have that same level of visuals.
                    I agree on all accounts.



                    The Watch (2012)

                    You know, with less childish peepee and cum jokes, this could have been a cult classic, like The 'Burbs or Faculty (which I guess were two huge influences on this movie). Great actors (The IT Crowd's Richard Ayoade is great, Jonah Hill is great, R Lee Ermey is great, but Billy Crudup steals the show), nice gags, lines and plot twists (even if one of them creates a massive subplot hole)... And yet it's full of those ewwwwww moments. If this had been directed by Edgar Wright, he might have been able to tone the penis jokes down a bit, and we might have gotten another Hot Fuzz (which seems to be another massive influence). But as it stands, it's just slightly above average.

                    • Man of Steel (2013)

                      "A good death is its own reward."

                      I was pleased. I may try to catch up with the MOS thread but it would probably take me a couple hours at this point. So quick thoughts:

                      (1) Very glad they did a Kryptonian and not a Lex story.
                      (2) Faora had the best lines.
                      (3) Russel Crowe stole the show.
                      (4) I assume the 3D was post-conversion since it was not at all impressive.

                          Thanks for the review. I was about to watch this as it was playing on HBO, but I think I'll pass, but since it's a long weekend because of America's birthday, I may end up watching it on a lazy day.
