    Watchmen was fucking great, especially that uber 3 hour mega-cut thing. I like Kermode too, but he's wrong there.

    I thought Watchmen was ok first time, but less good with each successive viewing.

    Initially it seems really deep.

    I admire the effort that went into bringing Watchmen to the big screen, but beyond the visual aesthetic, it's not a great watch to be honest.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    Its too literal. They adapt things to the screen for a reason, as seen by the only deviation from the original being one of the things that worked best.

    I meant Dances with Wolves, but his Oscar was for directing, not acting.

    Also I still think Watchmen is excellent, but I really really can't be arsed to have the same discussion about it yet again.

    I still see Dances with Wolves as his first vanity project. It's tainted by what came after.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Of Snyder's films I've only seen Watchmen and although visually stunning it felt quite empty especially having read the graphic novel. I was worried about him directing MoS but this latest trailer does look good.

    Mind you, I love Sucker Punch, 300 and Legend of the Guardians, so imagine the size of my boner for this.

    Yes, I said Sucker Punch. What of it?

    Haven't seen Legend of the Guardians. My kid likes owls so that could be win/win.

    Legends of the Guardians is actually pretty good. Probably not for a young kid, though. The mean owls are *really* mean!

    But, yeah, there isnt a single movie in his CV that doesnt prove that he is a great director, with a good eye and fantastic visual style.

    I found it harder to suspend my disbelief with Legend of the Guardians, than I would with a cartoon for some reason. The hyper realistic owls were harder to believe for some reason. I think there was a bit of the uncanny valley thing going on for me. But yeah its pretty good. Fucking owls.

    I don't think there's any debate about him having a good eye or visual style but that's not all that makes a good director. Whether he has anything to really say in his movies with any real weight or character is the debate.

    That comes down to the script. If goyer has turned in a decent set of words, i cant see this failing.

    At least one of the Nolan's had a look over the script so it should be ok.

    There's something a bit cold with all his films. They don't have much heart. It's not necessarily a bad thing, Kubrick films are all cold as ice, but yeah, so far I still don't think he's quite managed to make a film that somehow satisfying. Still early days for him though. This could be the one.

    Trailer looks fucking sweet. It'll make a ton of money. Hopefully it will be good too.

    Indeed though, as I've said, only visually satisfying for me so far so I'm hoping MoS will win me over.

    The one worry, from this trailer, is that it's going to be too much of a CGI-fest.

    That's the state of all blockbusters these days. They really need to do away with the animated category at the Oscars.

    I think it looks like it has a lot of heart. Zimmer's comments were interesting in that interview about how the film is in many ways about the mid-west. There's something very wholesome about the Smallville thing.

    Doesn't it needs to be balanced? Heavy action films especially using CGI are very boring.

    The first time I felt that way was with Terminator Salvation; I remember looking forward to it but I was bored to death watching it.
  • Deleted user 17 April 2013 16:26:27
    Flying alien god film requires CGI shock.

    CGI in itself isn't a problem, Terminator Salvation wasn't boring because it had a lot of CGI.

    I'm sure there'll be a balance. Again, the mid-west Smallville bits look like a Terence Malick film as opposed to a CGI fest.
