New Wachowski Bros Movie: Cloud Atlas

27 posts in this topic

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 have no idea what is going on, but I definitely want to see it. That looks awesome.

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.org/wiki/Cloud_Atlas_%28film%29

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.

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

I saw it this past weekend so thought I'd make the bump

I'm not the type that does the whole rating thing but thought the movie was top notch from a cinematic, tone, and music side of things....and it just makes you keep thinking about it. I thought it was very well done and would recommend it to any film buff.

There were bits that felt like Equilibrium, Blade Runner, and some segments even felt like a goofy British comedy. Just a unique fun, engaging, and trippy flick.

Anyone catch it yet?

Just watched this today, excellent movie, a 10/10 straight up. best thing I've seen this year(I know it came out last year).

 

And I know this is a extreme bump but the Movie was just good enough that I thought it might use a bump.

I've had this saved on my DVR for months. Problem is that it's nearly impossible to get my wife to pay attention for a 90 minute film, much less one that is nearly 3 hours long. I'll probably have to go solo on this one when she's out of town or something...Regardless, glad to know some have really enjoyed it. I almost deleted it the other day.

It was a good movie. Had to watch it twice for understanding, like Donnie Darko.

I do this all the time. The entire "Time of Death" Showtime series, Mob City, Justified... and those are all 1-hour series! A few movies I DVR knowing she'll never watch them, "The Master" and "Lawless"...
