Is it just me, or does Ultraviolet look like just another stupid, overblown piece of crap? Seriously. Ugh.

Oh yeah, and Will Wright gives a talk about his game Spore. It looks unbelievably cool. Also, he mentions monkeys with guns. Monkeys! With guns! What could be more fun?

UV looks no more crappy than the usual 'blow-em-up' type movie

I disagree profoundly. It looks like it has pretentions. I fucking hate pretentions. Pretentious pretentions. Argh!!! I hates them.

Well, then I'm going to have to see this film just to make you clench your fists and gnash your teeth in furious pretentious uh, fury.

On the one hand, it looks like a cross between Underworld (hot vampire chick) crossed with the Matrix (who kills the evil cops) and Casshern (with CGI for just about all sets and effects); the trailers have yet to show a single new element for the action movie genre. On the other hand, it's got Milla Jovovich, so I'll at least want to rent it.

Don't get me wrong. She's undeniably hot. But that's not enough for me to want to see the movie. I think DJ has hit the nail on the head. It's a total ripoff of Underworld/Matrix/Casshern. Totally.

And I hated the Matrix, so yeah.

Such pretentious vitriol! ;) It looks like just as much fun as any other Milla pilot, doesn't it? Surely it can't be as bad as Resident Evil:Apocalypse! Can it? Speaking of which, I see that Resident Evil:Extinction is in pre-production. Ugh.

well, besides the tasty Milla, the other reason I wanted to see it was it was directed by the guy who directed Equilibrium. I thought that was a good movie. After reading some reviews about UV (none of them good), I'm probably not gonna see this one on the big screen. Hell, the only way I'm will see it is if it magically shows up at my house for free. Oh well. I'll save my movie money for Nacho Libre or Night Watch whenever they come out
