Vanilla Sky

About one-third in to it this was shaping up to be a pretty good movie. Honestly. It certainly looked good. Good enough for me to actually want to see a movie starring Gay Tom Cruise. That first third I was really in to it, Gay Tom Cruise or not, but it seems that even the director couldn't figure out how to turn it in to something creative. I won't give away the ending, but let me tell you, imagine the worst way a good movie could possibly end, and you've got Vanilla Sky. Only if you've seen AI could you possibly appreciate the kind of frustration this movie brought me. A dopey idea taken to it's furthest limit.

THE VERDICT - 3

The beginning carried all the weight of this one. If you want a movie that keeps you guessing through the entire thing, then shocks you with the ending, watch Memento.
