HUH?

What a rambling wreck, I hang my head for the waste of good actors on this edifice to multi-story plots gone wrong. Could they have done better with the story, doubtful. If it was a book first maybe it was a good read, but probably one of those books best left untouched by cinema. I give it 5 stars on the money waster scale.

Connection Atlas: “Miniscule Film Spoilers”

By joyfulwoman2078

“Cloud Atlas” was a unique film that creatively weaved concepts of reincarnation into a message of how we are connected to one another. I am thankful for all of the blessings that I have in my life (including my family members and friends). However, watching this movie reminded me why I would prefer for my current lifetime to be my last lifetime on earth (if reincarnation actually exists). Yes, I know that “Cloud Atlas” is only a great entertainment movie. It is just that some of the future scenarios that were depicted were quite different from my vision of a future Utopian society. Tom Hanks and Halle Berry cleverly play the powerful roles of spirits who become drawn together in both 1970’s California and in some post Apocalypse world of the future. There were more actors and actresses that did a great job with the interwoven past and future life stories crafted together. “Cloud Atlas” is a film for those who enjoy movies with spiritual themes.

Another anti-business message

As is typical for hollywood, there is another anti-business message in this one. Another assumption that business people are unethical and will kill in order to get their way. Absolutely a stupid message.

Too deep for just one pass...

Wow... I thought this movie had a LOT of depth. I'm still certain there are aspects of this movie that I have, as of yet, not even begun to fathom. This movie makes for excellent discussion and I enjoyed it so much that I purchased the book and hope that I will be able to trudge through the 500+ pages therein. I will certainly be purchasing this movie for my shelf someday.

OH NOOO!

I was so excited to see this movie, because the maker of the matrix and the terrific cast.The movie was very confusing, the spend too much time in the simple things and none time to explain the real deal. The idea is carry on with the emotion with the special effects and back in forth with the past and the future. Entertainment not recommended .
