Have you seen this movie?


thedailymovie is taking a break for a spell - maybe a few weeks, or a month, or a bit longer, we'll see - so this will be the last daily movie for a while. Please feel free to remain a member of the comm., as I'm sure we'll be back to post more movies soon (and we always read and enjoy the comments, on the day or after).

But in the meantime, thanks to everyone who has voted and commented on the community. It's been a joy to host it. We hope to post again sometime soon.

For now, a Happy New Year to all our members - Cheers!

Surprised how it managed to feel so tonally different from the Comic, given how closely it followed events of Moore's story (until the end, obviously)

Easily one of the most disappointing movies of the year, but I'll give it a 4 just to be nice.

Yes! I gave it a 3 because I am slightly less nice.

Close enough adaptation to the comic, but Snyder's usual indulgences get in the way of my total enjoyment. Overly long action sequences replete with slow motion and the longest most unnecessary sex scene I've ever seen in a film (and I've watched plenty of erotic films [I don't mean porn], so it's not like I take issue w/the sex). A few clever music choices, but mostly groan-worthy awful. Changed the ending. Hated the characterization of Viedt.
I give it a 6 mainly because it was watchable and did convey the basic gist of why it was such an important and interesting work.

Anyway, have a Happy New Year! Looking forward to your return!

The most faithful film adaption of a comic I have ever seen. All changes were necessary in keeping the film beneath Das Boot length, whilst maintaining the overall aesthetic.

Already one of my most-watched movies of all time. I pretty much love it from start to end.

Not entirely sure we will bring it back, sorry to say. If we do it'll be next year, but we'll have to see. Thanks for asking though - and thanks for being part of thedailymovie.

To be honest, I think that's it. We don't use LJ too much these days and we've kind of unofficially called it a day. But we MAY bring it back one day, so you never know... (Thanks for supporting the comm. too!)

I'll speak to the other mod and look into it. Did you want to do it?

I would love to, but I'm afraid I get super busy during the week. Just thought I'd suggest that. I'm sure there are other members who would love for this comm to be active again and who could take over for you.
