Vanilla Sky . . . I Live . . . for . . . [Mar. 17th, 2004|01:00 am]
[In the Moment |touchedtouched]
[Special Music |Haunting DVD Menu Music for Vanilla Sky]

I live for films like Vanilla Sky.

Jacob's Ladder, AI, What Dreams May Come, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Requiem for a Dream, A Clockwork Orange, Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, many more that are on the horizon of my memory, they move me internally, like all great films do.

I forgot about my laundry with Vanilla Sky.

That's a pretty good film, one capable of such feats.

Oh man!

You make some wonderful points.

I remember thinking that AI bit off too much . . . it couldn't chew it all . . .

There wasn't solid sense of where they wanted to go with this film.

Kubrick, as other people have mentioned, probably would have made the film more focused on the boy and less about the environment/universe, which was very imaginative but too much to contain in a 2-3 hour ditty.

Bicentennial Man was good? I missed that one! I'll have to see it . . . :D

i just take my sci fi very seriously. :-)
