Happy New Year and Happy Break :)
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)
I'll miss this comm. Enjoy your break and I hope you come back. 8 ]
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!
I liked that blue guy ;)
Happy new year!
Happy New Year to you! :)
Cheers to you too!! and thanks for all the hard work and awesome daily movies! I hope you do come back, as I always look forward to your posts, and the insights I gather from others here.
Happy New Year!!!
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.
Any word on when this spell will break?
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.
Will this place be posting again? It's been almost a year....
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!)
Why not get new mods to take over?
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.
