I wanted to see Surrogates mostly because it looked like it had a cool plot. Living through a robot-you and all that. Of course it can make life as creepy as it is when guys are girls in MMO’s and vice versa. As you’ll see if/when you see the movie. I’d say it was worth it to see Brucey with hair and a scary smoothed out face. I hate when faces are smoothed out by CGI. Its creepy. I remember calling some RnB chick fuzzy lady cos they did it to her so much lol.
So, good movie? Bad movie? I’d say leaning towards the good. Yes it was predictable, and the CGI was a little ropey in places, but not most of the time. The action more than makes up for it. Had a kind of Stepford Wives crossed with I Robots feel to it. It didn’t that the creator of Surrogates is the same guy who was the creator of the robots in I Robots, James Cromwell.
And at certain points of the movie it did resemble I Robot alot, and actually, now I think about it, Minority Report. When Tom Cruise is walking between the screens that talk to you, theres a shot in Surrogates which was very-very similar. Not in a bad way. But if your gonna do not-far-distant-future movies, they’re all gonna look a bit similar frankly.
From what I understand Surrogates was based on a comic/graphic novel(depends on how uppity you are bout that kinda thing lol.), I’m guessing the comic would be better(almost wrote graphic novel there lol, too used to it… but they’re all the same thing… comic is for wider use, say graphic novel and someone knows you ain’t talking about the Beano lol.) Ok, went a bit off kilter lol. I wonder if you can read comics online the same way you can read manga online?
Anyways, nuff of that. All in all, a good movie. Memorably maybe only because of Brucey being in it, I’m not sure, ask me about specific details next week and I’ll see if I can remember lol. I suck with names of characters. I remember Peters, Maggie, Stone…. and ya know what, I can’t even remember Bruce Willis’s characters name lol. Tom Greer!!! Though I thought it was spealt Grear… eh, little details.
Ahhhhh and I know where I knew Maggie from!!!! Doom! She was Karl Urbans little sister. Rosamund Pike is her name. Cool name if you ask me. Oh, she’s from the UK! Coolio! Had no idea, she does a good american accent.
The the man does put silver in fox… not as much as Clooney does though. Suitable that he’s the voice of Fantastic Mr Fox really lol.
