Anyone going to see this? I'm excited. I love the historical warrior movies, especially mixed with fantasy. Also, not too many movies have dealt with the Titans. I might try to go tomorrow, since I'm off (Thank God!).

Alice | 297 comments Yeah, I'm pretty stoked about Immortals. The director is the same guy who did The Fall, which was amazing and one of my all time favorite films.

With my budget and kids, I'm waiting for the DvD but... I REALLY want to go see it.

I hardly ever go to the movies now. I will for this one and Breaking Dawn.


colleen the convivial curmudgeon (blackrose13) I dunno. I think I'll wait to hear what people say about it - it looks all style and no substance to me.

I'll post my thoughts after I see it.


message 7: by Eileen (new)

Eileen I just watched the movie clip and it looks good to me. I don't go to the movies much but this is the kind of movie you'd want to see on the big screen.


I'm going to see Breaking Dawn at midnight next week. It's become a tradition since Twilight came out. I was the only mom at the time that would stay up that late for the midnight showing and drive the teenage girls to the show. All I can say is the other mom's missed out, I had a great time with the 10 girls I took.

Eileen, I bet Twilight movies are a lot of fun during a midnight show. I can't hang now. I get up at five for work, so I get very sleepy by 9:30 or 10pm.

Janey | 158 comments I'm looking forward to seeing the movie but I'll be waiting to rent it as I don't go to the cinema very often.

I saw Immortals on Saturday. I would give it a 3.5 star rating out of 5.0

My thoughts (no spoilers)

*It was mainly a visually-stunning movie rather than a coherent plot. I think there were a few holes there that struck me the more I thought about it.
*It's very, very violent. Mostly splashing blood.
*Good special effects/art direction
*I don't think it follows Greek legends/myths that closely.
*If you want to see cute, buff guys half-naked, and beautiful women, then you'll enjoy it.
*Mickey Rourke's character was truly repulsive, or vile, as my mom says.

I think that you will be fine catching it on DVD.

Eileen Thanks, for the review. I'll wait for the DVD to come out and save myself some money.

No problem, Eileen. I didn't feel cheated, but I think I would have been okay catching it on DVD.


message 13: by Eileen (new)

Eileen Did you see the movie in 3D?


message 14: by Danielle The Book Huntress , Literary Adrenaline Junkie (new)

 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 4746 comments Mod
Ugh! That would be nauseating. Thankfully no! All that blood flying. Yuck. Actually 3-D/IMAX doesn't agree with my inner ear condition. I get really sick to my stomach.


message 15: by Eileen (new)

Eileen 3D movies are way over done these days and having flying blood come at me...no thanks!

Yeah, it does seem like so many movies coming out lately. I think it's overrated.

I do have to add that the action sequences were good.


message 18: by C.S. Splitter (new)

C.S. Splitter | 234 comments Thanks for that, Danielle. My wife and I were trying to decided whether or not we would go see it. I think we'll wait for the DVD.
