So This (sfx.co.uk) comes out Friday and oh my god does it look terrible.

I think directors were a bit more creative when they had to work around the constraints of reality. Tarsem's The Cell was pretty to look at but terrible, and now this doesn't even look pretty. Let's dial it back a bit, Hollywood!

That looks laughably bad. When will it end with the slo mo?

Nitpick: The title is actually just Immortals. No "The".

Tell us about The Muppets, nitpicker!

ETA: Sorry, got away from myself there, but I'm intensely curious about it given your twitter comments.

I agree that this movie looks ridiculous. Given that, so did The Cell and The Fall before it, and both films were turned out pretty good.

The Cell was extremely good in a theater on the big screen the first time I saw it. It was not as good on repeated viewings or watching it at home, but that first time watching it was really, really memorable and exciting. As for The Fall, I ended up catching it in a theater in Santa Monica on a Sunday morning and was 'treated' to having (of all people...) Michael Bay sitting a few rows in front of me. Again, it was extremely entertaining watching it in a theater, and it holds up a little better that The Cell, when watching it at home.

Tarsem has a distinct style to his films. When watching them in a movie theater with other people around you, they are almost magical. When trying to watch them at home on a smaller screen, they loose the magic and excitement.

I will definitely go see this in a theater, even though it looks terrible because all of his films 'look' terrible on a television. I'm sure it will have a completely different feel in a movie theater. My only fear is that this is supposed to be his first try at a film for a mass audience, unlike his other films. I hope he doesn't dumb it down for a wider audience.



Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.

I saw Immortals. I kind of liked it. It's a sweaty abs and pecs decathelon of gods and killing and killing gods. I thought the 3D was surprisingly good.
