So, 13 Oscar nominations. Anyone else think it looks a bit pants?
i like brad pitt and i also like cate blanchett (shes in it isnt she?)
and will also probably cry at some point.
like when he's a baby and she's really old BUT THEY'RE BOTH THE SAME COS THEY'RE INCAPACITATED or something.
anyway, i can't wait to see it.
Usually, if something gets critical praise in the right places, nine times out of ten the sheep in me will make an effort to go and check it out. But after seeing a couple of trailers for this, and despite the Academy creaming over it, I have absolutely no desire to see it
And looks interesting - also good
But some people have drawn parallels with Forrest Gump (and the two films have the same writer) - which is bad.
I'll just have to see it and make up my mind
And I don't want to spend an entire film deciphering Brad Pitt's southern drawl.
terrible concept. like that one with mel gibson (young at heart?) but without nazis.
Plus I don't seem to remember Nazis being in that
but it does look as though it is going to be very mawkish.
version of the story
nothing spectacular though, and i did think it went on a bit too longer than it should have, overall though it wasnt too bad
I don't think its amazing or 13 oscar nomination worthy but itis a good yarn with a cast all on form and the special effects that have Pitt ageing backwards are very good.
And for all your girls its the best Pitt has looked in a while, fuck me that guy is good looking.
Forest Gump but without the funny bits
it IS Forrest Gump. Odd child is born, meets love of live aged 5 or something, goes away. war happens, triumphant homecoming.
it's quite schmaltzy.
Sometimes I like the schmaltz
its nothing like forrest gump
and david fincher is uber.
Makes me want to see it all the more. Interested to see which side of the fence I'll fall on.
Only criticism is maybe its slightly too long, going on nearly 3 hours.
Cate Blanchett looks great and Fincher can do no wrong
But it had some good moments in it. All the bits with the old woman and daughter were basically irrelevant and dull.
However, when I first heard about this you could download the original story for free as an audio book, which I did. And it's quirky and fun but seems like it would make a really duff movie. So I'm not that bothered about seeing it.
