Well I saw it at IMAX. It was so big, and so awesome, that I could smell and FEEL the action.
However, the colors were so over-saturated I thought my eyes were going to explode. Not that it didn't look good, it was just like.... A really big workout for my retinas. They still hurt. =(
Regardless, the grain just looks like standard quicktime grain except in the extremely grainy parts, where I think it was intentional because they wanted it to look like a greek panting, maybe?
I don't know. Some of the stuff I didn't understand. Like the blood, for instance. Was it just me or did 80% of that blood look like a no-edited AfterEffects preset splatter?
The friend I went to see it with said it might be because they were trying to make this look like a comic book.
Meh. I say they were trying to make this thing look like one too many things. You can't make it look like a greek painting AND a comic book, and expect everything to just flow right.
For example, the [spoiler]mutant-type guys. The inbred priest people looked fairly realistic, but when the hunchback guy came along, it was like "Hello mr. overdone make-up and bodysuit. How are you today?"[/spoiler]
What I also didn't understand were the nipples. Don't get me wrong, nipples are great, but every time you saw one it was ROCK HARD. It's like... Nipples actually get THAT hard? It was a little awkward for me.
All in all I loved the movie, but it seemed like it could've used a little more time in post. Needless to say, my favorite parts were the greek painting thing near the end, and then the ending credit sequence. Great examples of why this thing didn't flow (stylistically) very well, but I still liked them anyway.[/spoiler]
Pssst. It's not really trademarked.
