    Well when I played the game Rhino,Scorpion, and etc were all mutated like Spiderman half man half what the villain was so I believe that's the direction the series is going.

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    I am very late but since I don't have much time...I just, finally, watched Les Misérables...on my computer. I used to listen the songs from the original version (French, musical theater), it rocked me at the time when I was a child, and it was based on Victor Hugo's masterpiece (which I read the book) after all, so I was a bit excited by the movie.

    Huh well. Very mixed feelings. I didn't expect that nearly the WHOLE movie would be rythmed by songs, I know, musical movie but still. The songs were still great, and a few actors did a very good job (Anne Hathaway...), even though I was a bit upset that they skipped one of the most famous song (by Gravoche, the child), well the little dude has been shot when he was about to sing it in the movie lol. So I have to admit that if he would have continued it would have been misplaced given the specific context in the movie.

    But aside that, the movie kinda missed the essence of the story itself. And the camera's plans/zooming during most of the songs were overall bad in my opinion, it removed the real impact of the songs, it lacked...emphasis ? I would say that the songs made up for this nearly constant weak point, and turning nearly each dialog into song ? Too much for a movie. Better fit to a musical theater as it has originally been. Well all things considered, I don't think that the director's work was all that great, aside a few scenes which brought a few tears, like the one with Fantine (Anne Hathaway) or the final when Jean Valjean died (with Fantine as a spirit) and when he joined those who died during the riot. (it didn't happen during THE French Revolution of 1789, but later, in 1832)

    The physical transformation of Hugh Jackman (as Jean Valjean) was great.

    On a sidenote I noticed that the English lyrics are really different from the French. Well it's kinda expected if we want to respect the rythms. Well for those who don't know the original version I invite you to listen the French version of "hear the people sing" (titled as "A la santé du peuple") at least.

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    I saw Life of Pi the other day. It was really astonishingly beautiful and a really well-made film. I didn't read the book, so I don't have anything to compare it to. I thought it was a nice, straightforward film with good symbolism. However, I couldn't help but feel like something was missing with the end. It sort of felt hollow to me, as if I wasn't sure what the point of it all was...I don't know,

    you'll have to consider that the movie was an adaptation of the musical, which was an adaptation of the novel- so... story-wise, the essence has lost 2/3 of its quality.

    I also read the book and it's nastier and grittier, fouler and uh... miserable, but with the work so abridged to fit 2 hours of film time and break into song every so often, you could say they did a good job.

    Yeah I know all of that that. But it was really song after song, even for a musical movie....from a musical theater, I had trouble to keep going, there is also the fact that it's not my native language and have more trouble than usual when it comes to song in general, so sometimes I don't get instantly the lyrics and have to read the subs in French.

    I think I would have been fine with all of that if I were in the musical theater, and in this case there wouldn't have an odd camera angle (too near).

    I guess it was, yeah. But some of the symbolism was lost on me.

    re: Life of Pi- visuals.

    I haven't read the book, but my sister had, and she told me that indeed the book had stunning graphic accounts of what Pi was seeing at the time, and that it was awesome to see it on screen as colorful and magical as the book had described.
