Hey! It’s 2001 and I just saw Vanilla Sky! ~*~Tom Cruise~*~ was in it 🙂
I’m going to have to make this brief. My father has managed to set a time limit on my Internet use and I’m down to about 45 minutes. I spent too much time in chat rooms telling people I was two years older than I am and that I live in California. LOL.
I’m just fucking with you. It’s 2013 and I’m just now getting around to watching Vanilla Sky. I managed to go 12 years without being spoiled so SUCKIT!
I’m a sucker for Cameron Crowe. I wish that wasn’t true but it really is. If I could count the number of times I’ve watched Almost Famous, well, you would all question whether I’ve truly felt the sun on my skin.
So since I’m reviewing a 12-year-old movie, let’s talk probably the coolest theory: NONE OF THAT SHIT WAS REAL. WHAT! C’MON SON! I love the idea that the whole movie was purely fictional and wasn’t even pretending to be “real”. This whole idea stems from the idea that Cruise’s car sticker says 2/30/01 – a date that doesn’t exist. Boom, bitch!
But for real, I get why when people ask “You know Vanilla Sky?” and I say “Actually, no, I’ve not seen it,” everyone reacts with this face:
It was pretty good. I spent a fair amount of time thinking “WHAT THE FUUUUUCK!” and finally all of the reveals started happening and the world began to make sense. The acting was tip top – even Cameron Diaz who usually feels a little too girl-next-door kicked the ass. She plays kind of crazy really well, actually.
And Tom Cruise. Oh Tom Cruise. You crazy little Scientologist. I can’t help it – he’s got a handsome face. I know he’s roughly 5’2″ but 1983-…okay I just saw Jack Reacher and he did not look terrible in it. I can see your furrowed brows now and you can just stuff it. But the crazy. The crazy makes it impossible for me to take him seriously as a human being.
Well, I won’t review this so thoroughly. 12 years of the Internet will give you enough 411 about the movie. It was cool, it was interesting, I would recommend it, the soundtrack was killer, blah blah blah. It wasn’t perfect but it was pretty god damn good.
