    Default Pan

    I really like the Joe Wright's directing and what not so I want to see it but I don't want to go to the cinema alone to see a kids movie.

    Has anyone seen it? Is it actually a kids movie? Is the story altered to match the general tone of his previous movies? Will I regret not seeing it in a cinema?

    Barely anyone will have seen it as it's not officially out yet. The early reviews aren't great though, it sounds like a bit of a mess. A bit like Hook was really.

    Just go see it, if you like his stuff. Once you're in the theater, it's dark, and everyone is focused on the movie.

    Even if it is a kids movie, no one is going to notice one person alone. You shouldn't let it keep you from seeing a movie you might enjoy.

    Too right, I won't let being on my own stop me from watching Pixar films at the cinema.

    I like that they actually let a kid play Peter Pan this time. Curious to see how Hugh Jackman pulls off Hook.

    I'm very much looking forward to it. Looks like my kind of movie. And it has Hugh Jackman.

    I'm really wondering why Tiger Lily looks like this, however...



    Did the director just decide to make the tribe they encounter in Neverland not Native Americans anymore?

    From reading the early reviews, the main source of negativity from the people who didn't like it is how much it deviates from what it's based on and re-envisions everything. I suppose that's just another one of those things.

    I read an article about that and he said that he felt it would be more racist to portray the tribe as native american caricatures as it is in the original story and decided to turn them all into a mishmash of cultures and present them as the natives of neverland.

    I agree she didnt necessarily have to be white though but then i guess Im just prejudging, she might just have been the right actor for the role

    edit: just saw it

    (SPOILER)Didn't have the charm of Joe Wright's previous films. The dialogue often times felt superfluous and cliched. In most of his movies he'll cut the dialogue so every line has a purpose but this was filled with so much unnecessary filler talk. From what I could see there was no elaborate long take that featured in most of his previous movies. I had maybe 2 or 3 laughs and there were maybe one or two camera transitions I liked and the special effects were pretty cool but overall I wasnt too impressed asside from one or two scenes that stood out but otherwise it felt kind of disjointed. Hugh Jackman was pretty good. The music was a rather unique choice

    He's not Hook, he's Blackbeard. Hook (who at this point still has both hands and is an ally of Peter during the film I think) is played by Garrett Hedlund as a Han Solo type.

    Watched this last night. It was great. The actor who played Hook was a phenomenal choice.

    Go watch it by yourself. No shame. I watch movies (even kid) by myself all the time. I watched this by myself last night. It means I don't have to share the popcorn or listen to somebody else before/after/during the movie/previews.

    Apparently, this movie was highly panned by critics. *runs*

    It was pretty disappointing, I must say.

    It was pretty terrible. I was bored a lot of the time. Not only that, but it felt like it had absolutely no connection to the actual Peter Pan story. I didn't feel at any point that we had been transported to the magical Neverland, just to the "old west".

    Eh.
