New sci-fi epic from Zach Snyder. Looks like the red-headed stepchild of Star Wars and Dune with a few chromosomes taken from LotR for good measure. Will still watch...

Looks OK. And at least it's Zack and not the horrid Wachowskis.

Looking more forward to Terminator 7: Shaquisha Takes Chicago myself.....Image



Admit it, this civilizational end-of-days stuff can be funnier than hell. :lol:

Hmm when comic books use offst ink instead of Ben Day dots they're Graphic Novels.
When movies rely on CGI & AI they aren't cartoons anymore.

I hate getting old.

Ridley Scott Isn’t Here to Make a Documentary



I think this should have been an HBO series and not a movie, it's just too big. Epic History does his legacy justice (and oversimplified) but this seems to do a TLDR version of his military exploits and focus more on the personal relationship instead to hold the narrative together. Disappointing, but the 4 hour director cut may be better.

Agreed. There's too much of Napoleon's life to fit in a movie, even a three hour movie.

I went and saw it today and ...... I was honestly disappointed in it. The battle scenes were excellent as you'd expect from Ridley Scott. But the rest of the movie was a disjointed affair. David Frum put it better than I can:

"I"d like to direct a sequence of gorgeous cinematic images tangentially related to the life of Napoleon, but I have no interest in - and nothing to say about - the man, his period, or anything he did or didn't do."

And that really nails the movie on the head. It's a series of vignettes about Napoleon's life with no context, exposition, or commentary on anything that happens. And if you went into the movie with little to no understanding of the French Revolution or Robespierre and the Terror, and everything that followed, you'd be lost.

There's no explanation of why Napoleon is able to rise to power so quickly or decisively. Or why he's so beloved across France, even upon his return from exile in Elba. And so many other aspects of his rule are either ignored, or glossed over.

Oh and I stand by what I said when I first saw the trailer: Joaquin Phoenix is too old to play Napoleon.

Ridley Scott is a brilliant director with many excellent, award winning films to his name, but this is not one of them sadly.
