Hmm, strange how we all have different tastes, eh?
When I saw the promos for this movie on TV, I thought "it could be good, but maybe just bad" and ended up skipping it at the theaters (plus I don't get out to the movies much...). I ordered it on a whim as part of my two free HD-DVDs from the VE deal, and watched it the other day (maybe Christmas day) for the first time. We all enjoyed it - the purposeful-softness was very well done, giving a nice picture while also tipping a hat to the period.
Somehow, for me, this movie evokes a "feel" similar to the original Metropolis (I wonder if that
will ever make it to HD-DVD
). Not sure why, must be the robots. Or maybe I'm crazy. Could be both.
