For ingenious, see pretentious.
Awful dialogue fail.
Plot holes fail.
Absurd logic fail.
Lightweight, unconvincing fight sequence fail.
Emotional intelligence fail.
The most overrated director in Hollywood off what was, admittedly, a very thought provoking movie at the time (Memento). However, where Memento shares a similar trope of skewed time perspective to a movie like, say, Pulp Fiction, if you ran Memento in the correct sequence it would be a borefest, whereas Pulp Fiction would still be a rollicking gangster flick with a fantastic script and entertaining characters.
I've been very excited for both Inception and Prometheus and felt massively let down. It's becoming a pattern, and not a good one.
went to see 'prometheus' directors cut at a special showing around london bridge ,the sidings.. dry ice ,free booze etc, and i would class it as a modern great.
the finest, left of center ,absorbing mini tv series i have ever seen was 'red riding' child abduction/sex abuse/the ripper/ in the 1970's . very very fucking harrowing but with a ending that leaves you breathless..not for people who enjoy the end of 'love actually'.
