" @Mistress_Redhead said:which part? that the Hangover was complete crap or that Fear and loathing was awesome? I am confused by your question..." smh People say its a mess, yet adore films like Hangover? "Are you serious with that? "
" @Mistress_Redhead: Are you back for good? Hopefully you are "^_^ I ams! no longer a mod so can enjoy the site and really saw what I think ;p
" @sissylion said:Good god, do we actually agree on something!?I would disagree with this, as a fan of both. What Gilliam chooses to depict as screenworthy is pretty God damn accurate to the book. Sincere to "the fear" and totally beautiful. And when it comes down to it, a lot of people... no, the majority of people who watch this that hasn't done LSD, mescaline, cocaine, etc etc would find this movie to be unsettling psycho babble nonsense. The characters are pretty close to how I imagined them when I read the book, which is something that never happens for me ever. So of course my take on this could be mildly biased. But yeah... ultimately the subject matter is deep in drug culture which is still a subject matter that is taboo and completely misunderstood. That has a great impact on the perception and success of a movie, no matter how good it is. "
" The editing is shoddy, scenes go nowhere, and it's an overall train wreck. I love the book, but the film is just terrible. "
