February 22, 2012 1:05 pm Ha! Poseidon joked about Hera not putting out. lol. Hera is the sexiest character in comics. Love that peacock hood she wears. Yum!
February 21, 2012 1:08 pm Great list of top moments. :)
February 20, 2012 5:02 pm I see that point. I'd say a conservative budget and unfamiliarity to CGI might be to blame there. For me, if the visuals are inferior to Crank, the comparison did not affect my enjoyment.
February 20, 2012 4:49 pm Yes, in retrospect, I appreciate this as well. :)
February 20, 2012 4:46 pm I guess you didn't. You're right. I had a knee-jerk reaction due to the overwhelming amount of "piling on for the sake of piling" that I'm gleaning from reviews on the net. Can I say I'm sorry? I am however quite disappointed that the visual innovation and the cinematography were largely overlooked. They were the strengths of this film. I was floored by the visual spectacle of it all. If I may, I would like to email you my review... Would that be cool Paul?
February 20, 2012 3:46 pm LOL, nice suffix replacement there. :) I understand this, but I feel, as I'm currently listening to the podcast that you were not able to put yourself in the context of this film. But hey, whatever, it's not a big deal. It doesn't matter. I liked the movie you didn't. It's that simple. :)
February 20, 2012 3:42 pm Of course I saw the movie and will see it again. And I read your review Paul. I am currently listening to this podcast.
February 20, 2012 3:30 pm I want to take this comment at face value Conor but I paused the show at about 1 minute because I heard nothing in your (or Ron's) words and tone to indicate that you had anything but prejudice and close-mindedness about the movie. I'll admit that it isn't easy to accept that people you look up to off-handedly dismiss a thing you love and consider a good piece of art, so perhaps I am bringing my share of prejudice to this... I suppose I would prefer to hear an dissenting opinion in this mix. Oh well, it really isn't a big deal is it?
February 20, 2012 3:20 pm Like War Zone, this will be a misinterpreted and under-appreciated film. A demonized piece of pop-art cinema. A punchline at the end of jokes from people who have barely watched the movie. Prejudice will abound. Fortunately, it won't stop me from having a big huge pile of fun while watching it. :)
