  2. I agree with you, but everyone else I saw it with loved it. How many times did we need to see that shot of a van slowly falling into a river? And they had 50 years to create a town with mind magic that could completely defy the laws of physics and they made a soviet bloc? What the heck? Christopher Nolan must have some boring dreams!

    Didn't you like WANTED?

  4. Goddamn, Isaac, you have a good memory. And you hold grudges. :)

    All I'll say is this:

    WANTED features a shirtless and sweaty James McAvoy double-fisting big guns.

    But this sexless, joyless movie does not.

  5. Is that a review? More like a rev-OUCH!

  6. To answer Erica, the shots of the van were to keep the audience informed of its progress towards landing in the water, a technical necessity. As for the design of the limbo world, I agree...but we clearly saw the place in decay rather than when it was newly created so maybe it wasn't always a soviet bloc.

    To Prince, sexless and joyless is too strong, but I can see where you're coming from.

    The point of the movie, as I saw it, was commentary on the trickery of cinema itself...in essence, movies are often the mediocre dreams of our lives and yet we still enter them, don't we?
