very cool artwork...for those who haven't seen it
Damn I can't wait until this DVD is released!
Thanks for the pic!
Nice but how is the movie? I have not heard rgeat things about it. How would it rate against Bicentennial Man?
Hmm, maybe worthy of a rental then (and a possible purchase).
This probably doesn't mean anything to you but A.i is my favourite movie right now. It is thought-provoking, unpredictable, well-directed, has flawless effects, is very well acted and has John Williams best score... All IMHO of course.
It kicked the crap out of Bicentennial Man, and then left it for dead.
Very...VERY good movie. Not everyone will agree, but I loved every moment of it.
I agree that it was MUCH better than Bicentennial Man. It is one of those movies that either you get it and love it, or you don't get it and hate it. Most people aren't luke warm about it. It generates quite a bit of controversy when discussed. Therefore...a good movie. I'm in the camp of "Best Movie of the Year." I can hardly wait for the DVD release.
A.I. is one of only two movies I saw this year that left a lasting impression on me. The other was Mulholland Drive. Both of them have some very haunting imagery and are well crafted films. IMHO of course.
Listen to the reviews and stick with Bicentennial Man. Yes, Bicentennial Man is a marginal movie, but far better than A.I. And no, I am neither ignorant nor closed-minded, it’s just my opinion.
(Good one, Wally!)
EDIT: Oops... I think Wally must be serious. I take it back, then... bad one, Wally!
I'll give it a chance and rent it.
A.I. was my favorite movie this year and I even think it may be my favorite Spielberg movie 'of all time.' The reason that soo many people were disappointed was that they expected a Spielberg/light/straightforward movie about a robot boy and got a thought provoking/dark/Kubrick movie instead...
I think that Stanley would be proud.
I personally woudn't sit through the movie again if you paid me. I had high expectations when this movie came to the theaters but ended up sitting there forever being bored. While it had it's interesting moments and apparently many people on this forum enjoyed it I would definently recommend renting it before buying it. Just my opinion so take from it what you will. Ok maybe if you paid me...
Travis and Wally, we're actually supposed to refrain discussing the merits of a movie here, but if you'd like to keep going, here's the latest, greatest discussion:
(Wally, I find your criticisms especially weak and I'd like to answer them... so c'mon, puddem'up! puddem'up!)
Actually, I find that artwork to be pretty weak. Don't you think the disc would be better if it was entirely black, with the big AI logo on it? I think that was the theatrical release poster. Anyway, I would prefer that art over the current, which looks very cut and pasted.
Bob - I agree. I liked the simplistic approach that was used in the early marketing campaign. I think that should also be used on the DVD artwork.
