I haven't read the book bkz friends say it's difficult to follow and the rewards are doubtful. Why see the movie then? Wasn't planning on it until a friend--who has read the book--suggested we go. Monday night, nothing else going on so yeah i went. Those expensive movie hot dogs are tasty. Dude, I was blown a-way. The movie is like a weird trip, with all these stories starting and stopping and continuing and bumping into each other on the way to the conclusion and a Message. I liked the Message but won't tell you what it is bkz that would be distilling the liquor down to like not even a taste. So, am damn glad I went out on a Monday night and saw this flick I had no interest in. And yeah the hot dog was good.

Cloud Atlas is an amazing film! The story is brilliant and time flies through this movie because it is so good. The make-up department should win awards for this one. Actilng is superb. Best film I've seen all year. Worth the money and worth seeing it on a big screen.

Visually stunning movie with some really big names. Unfortunately my friends and I stopped trying to follow the plot lines after the first hour and just sat back and enjoyed the action for the next 2 hours. We were talking about the movie afterwards for a good hour trying to figure out how the stories were connected, the characters each actor played, which soul was which, etc (with a little help from the wiki summary of the book). Even though the movie had to leave certain parts out, I think the final piece was well worth seeing in theaters. This movie really is one of those that you have to see a number of times to fully "get" so if that's not your cup of tea, then I guess this movie will leave you scratching your head. Go see this with friends so you can enjoy discussing it afterwards!

THIS MOVIE IS A THINLY VEILED OBAMA CAMPAIGN NARRATIVE DISGUISED AS AN ADVENTURE MOVIE. THE LIBERAL SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES RUN THROUGHOUT. ONE OF THE THEMES WAS TO RAIL AGAINST 'EVIL CORPORATIONS, ESPECIALLY OIL PRODUCERS. BUT, TYPICALLY THE LEFTEST ARE SO HYPOCRITICAL, AS IN THIS MOVIE WHERE THE PRODUCERS ACCEPTED MUCH $$ FROM THE CIGARETTE INDUSTRY.
THE REASON WE VIEWED THE MOVIE WAS BECAUSE TOM HANKS STARRED. BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE AS USUAL. BUT MY LAST BUY OF TOM HANKS' WORKS.
