    The Divide
    3/10 (only because the beginning was somewhat promising)

    I couldn't even watch it all, it was so bad. It was basically emotional torture porn.

    This movie really confused me, so if anyone can please enlighten me. Other than that, this has to be one of Christian Bales best performances.

        Did Patrick Bateman really kill Paul Allen, because at the end his lawyer said he had dinner with him in London. I mean I guess it happened because of the book his secretary found, but I just don't know if the viewer is supposed to see some underlying details.

        It's up to the viewer. Maybe he killed Paul and the ending is a dream, or maybe it's the other way around. Maybe he never killed Paul and everything he thought he did ended up all being in his head. Remember all the times he lashed out at people in public and they never reacted to him?

    I liked crystal skull a LOT on opening night. After repeat re-watches it got a bit less effective.. it's not very rewatchable imo.

    But that being said, there were a few worthy scenes, e.g. chase through the university, interactions between characters.

    Some of the action was WAY overblown and a mess, and some a bit more of a rehash/tribute than anything new.

    I personally think of it as a tribute rather than an actual sequel of the first three. The first 3 fit superbly together.
    you, at one stage, actually enjoyed crystal skull, even slightly?

    the first half of The Divide is bad as bad can get. filled with shitty dialogue and stereotypes.
    but the real movie starts when the insane stuff happen. even then its just worth a 6 though

    Best action film I've seen in years. Only problem I had with it was that the camera was a bit too shaky at scenes and that fight with the two brothers went on for way too long (nice finish though)

    Nothing they did made any sense.
        They won't let Mickey get out of the wheel chair because he lied about his supply of food, but they're totally cool with two obvious psychopaths (even before everything went to hell) raping and torturing another survivor, and torturing Mickey, doing whatever the fuck they want. They had so many possibilities to kill, or at least capture them, yet they did nothing. Infuriating.

I've always thought of the whole film as some kind of satire (well it is) and commentary on like, how they're all just walking suits and they don't really have any individuality at all. Like remember he's confused as Paul Allen by some guy, but maybe he's confusing other people to be people who they're not because they're all like the same and stuff?? And I always thought Paul Allen was really murdered, but maybe the guy who says he saw him just mixed him up with someone else or something. Either that, or Jared Leto-Paul Allen ISNT Paul Allen and he just appeased Patrick and is too polite to tell him that he has him confused with someone else, just as Patrick doesn't correct that other guy for confusing him with Paul.   

    does this make sense???

       although the dream/imagination theory is a cool concept too I never thought of that

    If you read the book then your concept is played with even more, mistaken identity is played with even more and by the end of the book you've read what people are wearing so many times that you don't notice the outfits would be horribly mismatched in real life. Paul Allen (Paul Owen in the book) also thinks Patrick is someone else (though who's to say he isn't).

    The director of the film, Mary Harron, felt that she made it too clear that it was a hallucination (at least the scene that starts at the ATM machine)
    One thing I think is a failure on my part is people keep coming out of the film thinking that its all a dream, and I never intended that. All I wanted was to be ambiguous in the way that the book was. I think it's a failure of mine in the final scene because I just got the emphasis wrong. I should have left it more open ended. It makes it look like it was all in his head, and as far as I'm concerned, it's not.

    I also like her quote about Patrick and his job.
    We never see him do any work. Some critics objected to that, as how can we misrepresent the world of Wall Street, but it's not meant to be a literal representation of Wall Street. Of course brokers work very hard, but this isn't a realistic portrayal of office life. We wanted to stress Bateman's complete disconnection from the world around him, and so when he's left alone, the mask drops, there's nothing there, he doesn't know what to do, he has no role [...] Somehow, it's a pretend job, as much of a performance as the rest of his life, and it's a fašade, his social life's a fašade, his romantic's life a fašade, and in a way, if we showed him really working it would interfere with the hallucinatory feel.
    Definitely read the FAQ on IMDB, a lot of interesting stuff.

    Yeah I never have thought of dreams to be a good idea. They can be executed well but it always feels like a copout to me (unless like its a genuine part of the story or whatever) "Oh its meant to be a dream it doesnt matter if it doesn't really make sense or whatever!!" no youre using a plot device and exploiting it to defend why the film doesn't actually work, have a dodgy cause and effect structure, etc etc

    Anyway judging by what Mary Harron said American Psycho is not meant to be a dream anyway, but I guess you're free to interpret it that way (although it sounds like thinking it's a dream is just further bringing home the fact that she made some mistakes in making the film )

    Throughout the movie (and book) people keep mistaking people for other people, and (this is especially noticeable in the book) everyone is wearing the same clothes.

    Edited:

    So either Patrick is even more insane than we thought and can't separate fantasy from reality, or the lawyer didn't actually see Paul Allen (or Patrick killed someone who wasn't actually Paul Allen).

    I've heard that in the book Patrick Bateman is a slightly different character. In the movie he's this super suave fashionable guy but in the book he apparently dresses like a person who is trying to be suave but has no idea what he's doing and ends up looking ridiculous.

    Well Christian Bale is slightly insane so perhaps that added to the hilarity. I personally think the book will tone that down and be a bit more serious.

    Not exactly, but he is much more insecure in the book.

    Sort of. He's a social retard in the book, the scenes where he meets Tom Cruise and gets the name of one of his films wrong (and then gets a nosebleed) and the scene where he has eye contact with Bono and gets a boner remind me of spaghetti copypasta. He lists what people are wearing incessantly and so, whilst I believe at the beginning of the book descriptions are accurate and would look normal in real life, by the end of it (when the reader is most likely skimming any sentences to do with clothing) the characters would look clownish.

    Edited:

    I do have the book, I should get around to reading it. Apparently a lot of the indulgent stuff like talking about Genesis is extended from a simple conversation in the movie to a whole chapter in the book. :>
    Genesis and Whitney Houston, the chapters are funny in themselves but it's the way that they contrast from the one before them. For example:

    I bring it down on her head. It takes very few blows, five or six at most, to smash her jaws open completely, and only two more for her face to cave in on itself.

    Whitney Houston

    Whitney Houston burst onto the music scene in 1985 with her self-titles LP which had four number one hit singles on it, including "The Greatest Love of All," "You Give Good Love" and "Saving All My Love For You," plus it won a Grammy Award for best pop vocal performance by a female and two American Music Awards, one for best rhythm and blues single and another for best rhythm and blues video.

    Cronenberg and Vigo Mort team up for a tasty film which asks can a man really change. What I really liked was the sex scene as it showed a wife fucking her husband very differently this time. Won't say why because it gives the plot away but the psychology in that scene is classic Cronenberg.

    Off to see the midnight premier of Prometheus at the Imax in about an hour, will report back if I'm still awake.

       You are right. The first time was very playful, her dressing up in her cheerleading outfit and showing compassion, the second time was practically rape. Shows how different Vigo's character became once he was backed into a corner.

       I also got the feeling she wanted to know what it felt like to have another guy other than her husband fuck her, even tho physically it was him inside her. This is what we love about Cronenberg, the scenes are multi level, even when 2 characters are fucking   

    Looks like I'm not seeing Prometheus tonight, my cocksucking asshole friend decided to not book the tickets like we agreed and try his luck at the cinema. Obviously they were sold out and we ended up coming straight back home. What a fucking sausage wallet!
