The other day I tried giving A SCANNER DARKLY a chance. I had skipped it in the theater because a)I find rotoscoped movies unimaginative and boring, and b)it was by the same people who did that dreadful movie "Waking Life", which I walked out on...at a free screening. You know the one where they sloppily rotoscoped actors reading their Philosophy 101 notes? Yeah, I took that class, too, but it didn't make me nauseated.
Anyway, I had heard good things about A Scanner Darkly, even from those who also hated Waking Life. Well, I couldn't even tell you what the fuck this movie was about because that dvd got kicked out of the player so fast it was still spinning as it was placed in the Netflix Return Envelope. Seriously, I lasted longer with fucking "Home On The Range" (the Roseanne Barr animated cow turd). If you've seen that movie, then you understand the severity of that last statement.
What killed this movie for me was not the rotoscope look (which is interesting visually as stills, but moving... not so much....), but fucking WINONA RYDER. How does this chick get work? Is it just me, or is she not the most annoying person working in Hollywood today? I simply could not take it. I have no idea what this movie was about or what happened or if it was good or not.
