Yeah, I thought that from looking online. (though the cinematography in the trailer looks pretty good.) I was surprised even after you said it would be a year or two after seeing about finishing the script after the trailer.

As you said, lets hope it makes it to screen, as well as that it's a really good movie rather than just sounding interesting as dystopian films often do. It looked like it could be from that trailer, rather than bland looking, (for lack of a better word), that some others tend to be.
:sadnod: Dystopian stories never really translate well.

Equilibrium (Christian Bale) and Aeon Flux for example. :teehee: Terrible dystopian movies.

Aha, that's the exact movie I was thinking of when saying it! Sounds interesting but felt very bland (as said, for lack of a better word). I know they couldn't really show emotions though, but isn't it by the same team as The Matrix? That also had a very similar feel about it.


Edit: Oh, not seen Aeon Flux though.

I really liked Inception, though parts of it seemed somewhat rushed and half-baked. The third act, if I'm honest, was pretty sloppy, and that was the only point where the film seemed like it was dragging a little. (I'm talking the whole Snow Fort into Limbo bit here; for instance, how the hell did Cobb suddenly end up washed up on the beach in Saito's Limbo? Why did Saito age but Cobb didn't? And, as a matter of fact, it was never clarified whether there was one Limbo or multiple Limbos for each individual - Saito seemed to fall into his own Limbo, where as Fischer fell into Cobb's...)

I also felt no attachment to the characters; very hollow and one-dimensional, though I guess a rich character-driven piece wasn't exactly what Nolan was going for. All in all a good effort, but not a great film, and certainly not a masterpiece. For me Nolan is yet to match the heights achieved with Memento. Good to see some more imagination in Hollywood though. Oh and the final shot was brilliant.

Didn't enjoy Inception as much as I was expecting. It was good, but it just didn't work for me. Lots of unanswered questions and things that could have done with explaining IMO
Maybe they left that for part 2.... Assuming if it comes. I havent watched it yet, and I feel like I am banging my head on a brickwall.

I meant Lost. :p:

That trailer is strange though. In fact, that's probably the first trailer where I can't make my mind up (whether it's good or bad). I'm going to watch the first episode of that show and see what it's like. :yep:

It has a "A Town Called Eureka" vibe to it - if you've ever heard of that show.
Oh right, you confused me because you only quoted the bit where I was talking about Ted. :p:

You should definitely check out the first episode though, it's worth it.

As for Lost, definitely it's worth it. It's my favourite TV show (while I know that there are technically better TV shows out there, such as The West Wing, I just don't like them as much) and it's just brilliant. It has some of the best TV acting, and focuses so much more on character drama than you would think. You can pick up the older box sets for ~£10, and for that price it's definitely worth getting the first season and seeing if you get hooked.

Carey is alright though.
Not a patch on Keira Knightley.

Aeon Flux is a truly terrible film :yes:
I watched that film so many times, I used to have a huge crush on Charlize Theron. :laugh: She did look good in it, even if for some reason she had a different costume on in every single scene.

Although visually stunning, I have to agree I found it dire. It was up there with the golden compass and Atlantis in terms of boring films.

Found it! It's called the The Marionette Unit. Watch this trailer.

That looks really good. Do you know who's in it?

Franklyn is another low-budget British dystopian film. Flawed and underrated, but still brilliant.



And I kind of liked Equilibrium, albeit because of the presence of Christian Bale and Sean Bean.

The only reason it was the worst for me, is because it met my expectations. Every movie I have ever watched was above or below my expectations, no matter how high or low. That, and it was just too predictable. You just know for some reason what was going to happen next...

Well i'd assume which fell below your expectations would be worse than a film which met them . Though it was very predictable and the script was like a trundling rhino. Brutal slow and obvious. However calling it the worse film ever ignores the plethora of other films which are significantly significantly *******. It was magnificent to watch and was cinematographical masterpiece, even if in the end (i've got an eye on you, phalanges) it was pocahuntas in space.

Worst for me, not for the world. I came out of the cinema, with no feeling. You usually get that feeling whether a movie was good or not. But I felt blank. It was great with all the cinematics and visual effects but..... hard to explain that feeling.

Its like looking at the most exquisite plate of food. But that plate has a bland taste.

I agree it was very predictable. But that wasn't even the most annoying. It felt to me just a bit too preachy :erm: It was one of those films where you are waiting for it to finish. But I can't deny that it was beautiful.

I watched Donnie Darko last night. I love this film, it's such a rollercoaster of emotion. The scene in the cinema gives me goosebumps as well, it's special.
