Re: Cloud Atlas - Blu-ray Review

This movie wasn't on my radar as it just seems too freaky. I always like your reviews though Mike so I might have to give this one a shot, I hope you don't let me down

lol, I hope I don't steer you wrong. it is a VERY different movie, the real joy is in the little threads that bind the stories together more than the stories themselves. I honestly thought it was going to be too "freaky" as you put it as well. As you can tell I ended up enjoying it immensely.

We watched this one a couple nights ago. I actually enjoyed it though was a little put off on the dialogue at times. The language they were speaking was a little hard for me to follow at times. Many stories within the story but overall it worked for me.

Re: Cloud Atlas - Blu-ray Review

It is long and it can be hard to follow. Once you get to following the story line it switches to another. Futuristic space to Plantation days is a big jump to wrap your mind around and so forth. I found the roles that TH played were the most diverse I have ever seen him portray. Anyway, once you get used to flow of film it is quite good. Glad I viewed at home though so I could pause, couldn't imagine sitting in theater for entire duration. True True...

Well worth it Todd. It was a bit of an acquired taste so to speak. I became more and more interested as it went on and you must really pay attention. After nearly three hours when it ended I thought it was pretty good. A different movie but in a good way. Be patient through the first half and stay with it.

Re: Cloud Atlas - Blu-ray Review

Just another Ingmar Bergman wannabe. Terrible, cliched film. So bad my Oppo started to yawn.

Re: Cloud Atlas - Blu-ray Review

I disagree. I thought the film was good. Certainly a refreshing alternative to much of the drivel and retreads that we see as the norm. I would not consider it a classic nor even exceptional, but it was interesting and kept my interest, in spite of its length.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Very refreshing and I found it very entertaining.

Re: Cloud Atlas - Blu-ray Review

I had a copy of this film on the way but it got lost somewhere in the shipping process so will have to reorder. Looking forwarding to seeing it...
