    In Beyond the Lighted Stage Jack Black talks about rocket sauce and how some bands have enough for several albums and others use up all of it on just one song. I think directors could be the same way.

    Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes seem to be hoes for Gravity. What the heck, according to them, Moon is worse than... 22 Jump Street. I swear I've lost faith in them.

    Is it a crime that I never finished this one?
    Everyone seems to be a fan of it and while I acknowledge very much that it's a classic, I cannot lie that I am absolutely bored by it.

    HEY!!! I like(d) that movie, although it was rough in spots and had some flaws.

    I also prefer the bittersweet ending (i.e., edit out the last 5-7 minutes).

    Sorry Jennifer
    I just thought it was not at all original, quite clumsy and blockbuster wannabe, considering the much bigger budget he had

    But I can see why it's entertaining.

    I actually found it interesting rather than "entertaining," but I agree it felt kind of "small" in some ways. Which is too bad, as he had a decent cast. Considering what he has made in the past, I don't know if he has a "blockbuster" mentality.

    I wished he had came up with something more original and felt disappointed as I had seen the same concept in other movies made before, Dark City, Timecrime, Dreamscape, The Cell. He's a talented guy...
    I would be very happy if he sets his mind on staying indie. Darren Aronofsky broke my heart by making 2 big budgets and blockbuster-ish movies.

    Different sensibilities... *shrug*

    Dark City is a favorite of mine, especially in terms of tone -- perfectly captured. Part of the reason I watch it is for the ambiance. I haven't seen the other movies you reference, and I think The Cell was usually dissed.... so I never watched it.

    I actually saw value in some parts of Aronofsky's "Noah," but at the same time I felt like it was one of his weaker movies overall. I don't think I'd call Black Swan a "blockbuster," I was honestly shocked at all the hype; I happen to love that movie, yet I have no idea why it appealed to mainstream who I thought would have been unsettled by it.

    (It was rather like Inception -- I like it, despite its flaws, but was shocked by all the hype.)

    Oh I love Dark City.

    The Cell is my all time personal favorite. I guess it's the matter of taste. I thought J-Lo was terrible, as always. But the idea and the visuals are unforgettable. Some might find it disturbing and random. I thought it was brilliant. The same guy made the beautifully crafted fairtytale-like The Fall.

    I guess Aronofsky didn't plan for Black Swan to be such a mainstream artsy piece, yet he spent only $13 mil on it and earned back almost... $330 mil. He lost his humble yet ambitious indie-ness mojo. It's funny how his weakest films are the most popular and beneficial. Being his big fan and having watched all of his previous works, I never touched Noah Should I? I hate it when my favorite directors "do it big and loud".

    Now you remind me of Inception. I thought it was visually beautiful, taking into account that Nolan used little to none CGI in things he does. But yeah, I don't get the hype. The a dream within a dream has been done times before. It made me think of the anime Paprika and, again, Dreamscape right away. Marion Cotillard character was painful to watch, and Ellen Page annoyingly did all the plot explaining for the audience because Nolan was afraid his story is so intricate that audience might not be able to understand it. The movie was pretty cool... until the skiing scene. Nolan couldn't decide if he was going to make it a scifi or a Bond movie. Visual arts students love its "originality" though. I feel sad and sorry for the older, lower budget, much more original movies that never made it to the big screen.
