PS3 Demo: The Movie, starring a Ja Jar Binks cousins
I'm cynical enough that I didn't believe it would be a cinematic masterpiece, but unfortunately wasn't cynical enough to expect it would look like a crappy eight-year-old Final Fantasy movie populated by Jar-Jar-Binks.
This just looks like the rehash of the rehash of a bunch of videogames and sci/fi original movies put together. Another proof that big viral marketing and internet hype usually means just another generic film that nobody will remember.
Well this certainly squashed any enthusiasm I had for this movie.

A 12 year hiatus for this, Jim?
James Cameron died right after Strange Days came out.
YES HE DID!
The above links aren't working.
I have come to the conclusion that anyone that says, "I was waiting for technology to catch up with my imagination" is a fundamentally impatient person.
I would have been a bigger fan if the aliens were just dudes in latex and blue paint. 'Course, that's also just kind of my thing in general.
I agree. I rarely have any 'suspension of disbelief' problems. When I go in to see a film, I expect it to communicate some kind of mood or vision, which to me is often much more important than fooling me into thinking its real. Ridiculous special effects have been used in brilliant films.
There's also the issue that, regardless of how much money was spent on this thing, it still looks incredibly fake. Fake in a hyperrealistic, cutting edge way, but still very very fake.

None of the links are working for me.
I'm remaining skeptical and not going to chance having childhood dreams ruined here.
but thats our job, and we are very good at it
This looks so goddamn retarded. Floating islands in the sky...night elves...people controlling other bodies...this is basically the World of Warcraft movie, right?
World of Warcraft never had anything that original in it.

It's the distant future. We've reached far-flung galaxies.
Apparently, we can synthesize alien bodies and download human brains into them...
...but we can't fix a paraplegic's legs?
Also, why are the humans flying around in Hunter/Killers?
I'm more concerned by the fact that they won't even give him an anti-gravity wheelchair.
And why are they putting people into elf bodies? So they can finally achieve every pathetic ubernerd's dream?

OH MY GOD THEY STILL HAVE WHEELCHAIRS IN THE FUTURE WHAT KIND OF SHITTY FUTURE IS THIS THAT THE ABYSS GUY CAME UP WITH
He's had shitty ideas that turned out to be good films a couple of times now, but that's not what the five stars are for.
The five stars are for you.
It just seems stupid to me that hundreds of years in the future, on a spaceship, in space, in what appears to be the military, where technology has advanced so far that they can transfer a human mind to the body of a being that evolved on another planet, they won't even bother giving the paraplegic guy a motorized wheelchair. And it's fucking Tommorrowland, so you know they got good ones available.
I know the clunking wheelchair is supposed to be a symbol, so we can *totally understand* how the mind-transfer into the body of the furry blue space-elf with working legs TOTALLY FREES HIM TO BE FREE (and make oogly eyes at the female furry blue space elves, right before he goes native because he knows he'll never be able to be with a human woman... because the elf wenches are so BEAUTIFUL... he'll never find such beauty again...yes). It's still stupid.
