    Cloud Atlas Review | Movie Reviews and News | Fall Movies - Calendar, Trailers, Movie Photos, Movie Clips, Movie Guide | EW.com

    Cloud Atlas is like a gonzo miniseries that, at times, seems to be cramming the entire history of Hollywood genre films into one multi-tentacled parable of freedom and authoritarian control. You'll catch echoes of a hundred other pop touchstones, from Roots to Guy Ritchie films to Soylent Green. I would never call Cloud Atlas profound — it's more like a pulpy middlebrow head trip — but the hook of the movie is that Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer so clearly meant everything that they put in it. B+
    PLEASE go see this.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger Returns in THE LEGEND OF CONAN | Collider


    I don't have a problem with this IF they were bringing back Momoa as Conan. But, since they aren't, this is a stupid idea. And having Ahnold in it is even dumber. Folks were lucky to live to the ripe old age of 35 in those times, no possible way he would still be alive at 65+. And really, are they just going to dust off every property Ahnuld had success with and shoehorn him in? Sad.

    The book, BTW, is a very quick read. I won't be done by tomorrow, but I'll be done before I see the movie on Saturday.

    Sadly, I'm done with Arnold as an action star. I love Arnold, his movies and his characters but I have no interest in seeing him do an old, pale, soggy and wrinkly version of his younger self. I'll probably watch it eventually but I just know it's not gonna work.

    But The Last Stand is going to be great. Bank on it.

    Remember Alfonso Cuarón's 'Gravity'? It Now Has A PG-13 Rating | The Playlist

    Shot way back in 2011 and originally slated to be released next month by Warner Bros. before being pushed to a still unknown 2013 date, word has been deafeningly quiet around Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity." With nothing in the way of stills or posters, the movie is still somewhat of a mystery, though it does seem like we're inching slowly toward some fresh news about the movie.

    The MPAA have dropped their latest batch of ratings (via Rope Of Silicon) and it includes a PG-13 rating for the film "For intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language." Of course, who knows what that means for the actual release of the movie, but it goes suggest a cut is finished.

    Review: 'Cloud Atlas' Is Bold, Messy & Disappointingly Unimaginative | The Playlist

    On a technical level, we suppose the film is an accomplishment, with costumes and period details mostly coming through, but in most other ways, this $100 million effort offers fortune cookie social commentary put in a blender with a handful of thinly interlocking stories, in a failed attempt to say something meaningful about the human condition, and how modes of good and evil perpetuate themselves across centuries. Too long by at least a half hour, and both dull and repetitive as it goes on, "Cloud Atlas" reaches for envelope-pushing storytelling but never delivers on its promise. [C-]
    :/
