I have no fucking clue what this movie was. It's like if Robert Zemeckis directed an Aristocats movie in 2004. It looks absolutely ghastly, the music is extremely off-putting, the effects literally aren't finished and glitch out in a few places, and there's an uncomfortable horniness to the entire thing that makes it feel like an exercise in loopholing the MPAA to rate fetish porn for kids. This is the highest budget experimental film ever made.

I had a fucking blast.

Our theater was completely full of people who were there for the same reasons we were, ready to watch a beautiful slow-motion (and I do mean slow– fuck this felt so long) CG train-wreck and hoot and holler through the whole thing. We got rowdy, we screamed and laughed, we sang, we stood up and clapped along and made comments about the audacity of the whole film– I truly feel a bond with these strangers. It was maybe the best moviegoing experience of my life, and I will never forget it.

I will also never forget the Cronenbergian horror of Idris Elba's Macavity without his coat. Absolutely fucking ghastly.
