    any one else see this movie?

    the gf was intersted in it so i rented it for her. from the one preview i saw i NEVER expected to see some of the crazy shit in this movie.

    its way out there and at the end of the movie i was not quite sure if i liked it or loved it for its uniqueness.

    thoughts?

    go read the book, its a fantastic read.
    i thought the movie royally sucked and didnt crossover well to the screen.

    the writers description was so vivid and the main character was a total miniature ogre.

    It's a poor adaptation from the book, which really isn't anyones fault except whoevers idea it was to take a book, which primarily deals with someones thoughts and try to make a movie about it.

    Haven't read the book yet, but I'll definately have to pick it up.

    Having said that, I absolutely LOVED this movie!

    I made it a little over halfway through and gave up on the turd (which it most certainly was). It was hoaky as hell, and just really, really dumb.

    It was a turd? Just like your avatar i suppose. Tool is overratted. This coming from someone who likes them(kinda). 10000 days(or lateralus part2) was a huge dissapointment. Anyway back to the subject at hand. Not a turd at all.

    It was just DUMB. "I must preserve the essence of a woman!!" The main character was unbelievable as all hell. It was like a wannabe superhero/villain movie set in Ye Olde France.

    Ill admit it is a goofy story. But that is what makes it so unique.

    I really loved the movie overall, but the orgy scene really dropped it down a notch for me.

    Going to check the book out, though. :wiggle:

    Hahahah this movie, I thought for sure the guy was gonna die, and then the movie fucking stunned me, I was laughing my ass off at the directors audacity. WTF seriously ahahah a hanging turns into an all-out orgy because he has the "scent" of royalty now, akin to a god. And then in the end where he gets devoured...wow this movie was certainly original but also partly ridiculous.
