The guy bitching on aintitcoolnews about this movie was…
Well, really wrong. Wrong enough that I almost wonder if he wasn’t being wrong on purpose to throw people off. The only other explanation is that he just didn’t get it.
This is a fun movie, it’s got some great ideas in it, and it really… well, it’s not afraid to change the rules. Good stuff. I entirely enjoyed it.
There was one silly comment of his that stuck with me though, and it colored one of the scenes in the movie in a funny way.
The following is not a spoiler in any plot sense, but if you don’t want to know ANYTHING AT ALL about ANY scene that hasn’t been in a trailer, don’t read on.
[Hey Lori, how yah doin’? :)]
Okay, there’s a scene in Zion where everyone’s sort of dancing.
You’ve seen the original movie — thus, you know how everyone dresses in the real world. Now, knowing that, and picturing a dance scene, imagine the whole scene set not to the thumping dance beat that the soundtrack provided, but to the background music from those “Cotton” TV commercials…
…cuz that’s what I was doing.
“The touch… the feellllll, of Cottonnnnn….”
Did not help with my suspension of disbelief :)
