Those are usually the movies that are worth watching more than once.

They're not brothers anymore. One of them had a sex change. The title is offensive and should be changed.

I got chills multiple times and I don't even know what was going on throughout most of it.

I'm feeling it's gonna pull an Inception on me. I don't know what to think coming out of the theater, but the more I think about it, the more intrigued and fascinated I get. Then I watch it again and again just putting together pieces of the overall story and plot.

Looks good.

I think this is why it resonates with me, I didn't know anything of the novel but this from the films Wiki page:
http://en.wikipedia....ud_Atlas_(film)

The official synopsis for Cloud Atlas describes the film as


an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.[2]

Right up there for my favorite movie of all-time is Back To The Future. Part of the reason why is because I once heard Leah Thompson say that she thought the movie was so successful b/c it spoke to the idea that if you did something different and stood up for something once in your life, it could change the entire course of your life (George McFly punching Biff, winning the girl, how it affected their lives, their kids lives, and others from that point on, etc.).

Yes, I know this is going to be much more "epic" cinematography-wise, but I have always loved stuff like that.

Lea Thompson was better in All the Right Moves, particularly when nekkid.

Anyway, the trailer looks amazing and the fact that Tom Hanks is starring makes it a must see. I already love the soundtrack.

Looks fuging amazing, and a fairly obvious message that we are all a part of the same organism.

They are modern day prophets trying to teach you dummies something!

P.S. I think you have to call them the "Wachowski Siblings" now
