Cloud Atlas

Any feedback on it?

I thought it was a bit weird and hard to keep track of what was happening. It is hard to give feedback about it as it would give away too much. Certainly when i watched it DH and i had a few conversations about it, the content lends itself to discourse afterwards. It could be one of those movies that divide people - one group thinking it wonderful and the other thinking it was meh.

Watch it with an open mind and keep your eyes peeled to take in what is happening (some interesting "twists" happen that you might miss if you aren't watching closely).

I don't think they did a very good job of managing the flow of same-actor characters. I though The Fountain handled the whole thing much better.

DH has seen it but didn't think much of it, told me not to bother as it wasn't worth watching.

Such a shame as he is a massive Matrix fan, thought this might have had more to offer.

I saw the ad a few times and it looks confusing. Is it based on a book?
I couldn't see any hint of the type of movie it was.

It tried too hard and failed super hard. Hugo Weaving gave an awesome preformance though I thought.

Awesome book - by David Mitchell.  One of my favourite authors - I'm so scared of seeing the movie.  Only David Mitchell could get me to sit through anything with Tom Hanks...
