Actually, his films make a lot of sense, they just demand a participation and an effort on your part as a viewer, as well. But, that sense is surreal, so you're not going to fully grasp everything with a strictly analytical, 'mathematical' mindset. You have to let your imagination do the thing also.

That's a damn shame to hear. I've got to disagree with you, though. There's always abstract art present in society. In film, I find it rare that anyone steps outside of their comfort zone. Though I haven't seen all of his Lynch's films, I can definitely attest from the ones I've viewed that this director does not follow any kind of standard formula and for that alone, I've got respect for him as an artist. His films are always open for interpretation, and some people like it, some people don't. I know I'm not always in the mood for it. Just as I'm not always in the mood to read something really deep that provokes unavoidable thoughts, or analyze a piece of art that thrives off the observer's point of view. That is why I prefer music. Though always open to interpretation, you can simply sit, listen and absorb.

Can't say I enjoyed it much. I felt like they were trying to hard with the 3D. I mean, it was ok, but, I couldn't really find myself caring much for it. So I guess the verdict is, this is one you can skip.

A sequel, based on a video game, in 3D. With such a pedigree who could ever have guessed that it would be skippable.

Haha, my fucking brother was so hyped to see this shit, then an hour and a half later I'm like... "Fuck you bro, that was a waste."

I suppose I can see where it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it was everything I wanted it to be. Definitely buying this when it comes out.

^ It takes about 50 minutes for anything like an inciting incident to happen., which says everything it needs to about this overlong, bloated, pretentious borefest. Dunno why I thought it'd be any good really.



^ Up until that nasty guy with the dodgy eye gets shot about an hour in, I thought this was a really good movie. For the half hour or so after that, I just lost interest. Added cool points for having Ed Harris in it though.



^ This was pretty cool the whole way through though. Re-setting one of the British old-timer classics in the States would usually border on sacrilege (a'la Alfie), but I think it works quite well here. Hard to follow sometimes, what with there being three narrative threads and all, but worth it.

Yeah, and whatever happened to Jill Valentine?
