About as bad as 9/11 from an American's point of view.

This movie cost 155 million dollars to make.
and 1 minute 46 seconds to make me puke
Oh great. Now I'm morbidly curious.
I had to see it because I was at work. It's a weird steampunky world and is filled with anachronisms like this. I wouldn't have paid for it and it's a good example of "how did this get made," but it did remind me of Altman's Popeye in a lot of ways, unappreciated in its own time and loved by some later. But buckle the fuck up because it's fucking loooooooooooooooooong.
I saw it at a free screening and agree, wouldn't have paid for it but it certainly is a curiosity.
I left feeling like they wanted to end it with a "its all in his head" but no, just an origin story for a sequel that will never happen.
I dunno, Disney's easily made up for this with Star Wars, so it's kind of like the 5m equivalent of me losing a one dollar bill in the wind, or dropping it into the toilet after doing coke on the toilet tank cover, which is probably more accurate for Disney execs. "Oh shit but oh well." Is it that Peter Pan doesn't appeal to kids anymore since they've got Maze Runners and Hunger Games which also have kids their age? The movie got shitty reviews but that's no excuse for your parents not to take you to a movie. Just ask.. I dunno where to begin.
Maybe Star Wars will have an effect: kids are experiencing this nostalgia for something they never remembered, including things like Peter Pan, unless you saw some half-assed high school production of it where Peter didn't even fly, or another where the rope broke loose. As much as I didn't like this movie I'd take it over having to sit thru another Maze Games, so I'd be down to sit through this bullshit again.
What in the fuck. like...how does this make any sense, even in the context of the movie?
I think it's like a WWF entrance song. Like if Hook was Shawn Michaels the slave kids would be chant singing 'Sexy Boy'.

Weird and different. Made me cringe, but I like it!
I especially like its treatment of a band that was held in far too high regard. Leather steampunk Cpt. Jackman says stop taking yourself so seriously, Nirvana!
I kinda get this uncomfortable feeling that this was Jackman's idea and he's some sort of "huge Nirvana fan".
Sort of how Patrick Stewart loves off-roading, so there are an inordinate number of dunebuggy/4 wheeler scenes in his movies where he had some sort of creative control (i.e. Star Trek Nemesis, Masterminds)

Well, as long as it upsets 40-year-old fans of In Utero, I'm okay with it.
Whoops didn't read your original comment in this thread: I'll remember Nirvana weirdly: I was only 8 years old when Bleach came out but grew up in the middle of the Grunge Scene, so I never saw them live, but heard plenty of stories. Like I've sat on the same toilet that Kurt and Courtney allegedly fucked on, stuff like that. But I think my favorite story is from a little-known band called Calamity Jane, who were a tiny little riot grrrl band from Portland, all of a sudden opening up for Nirvana in at a festival in Argentina. They got pelted with rocks, mud, were called sluts etc. by thousands of angry festival-goers and pretty much broke up the band on stage because people wanted to see Nirvana. So Kurt's solution? Play everything that's not "Smells Like Teen Spirit" which was the only song they wanted to hear.
So I'd be lying if I said I didn't like Nirvana, but better music came out of that same time period in the same general genre, and Kurt knew it too. But he stayed true to those who were close to him, even if one of them would turn out being the cause of his suicide.
Is he wearing a bustle?
