LAMBScores: Cloud Surfing: Revelation

by Nick Powell · November 20, 2012 · Chops and Scores, Featured, LAMBscores · No Comments

This week, the LAMBScores features a couple of very, very different films. First up, we have the epic Cloud Atlas, a film that spans centuries, universes, lifetimes, and so much more. Is the movie’s ambition rewarded with a great LAMBScore? Check out below. Up next is Silent Hill: Revelation, the sequel video game adaptation that tries hard to duplicate the success of the first film but comes up pretty short. The 3D doesn’t help. Bringing up the rear, and unfortunately not qualifying for the scores are both Fun Size and Chasing Mavericks. As always, however, feel free to post your own scores over at the LAMB Forums and join the discussion.

Movie Reviews by Tom Clift:
“A big, bold, beautiful work of staggering ambition and artistry”
Go, See, Talk!: “For its scope, scale, and boldness, the film’s true spirit houses itself comfortably in the thematic realms that lie between and beneath every second of lush visual extravagance.”
The Sanity Clause: “Whether or not it’s actually about anything is beside the point. It has the same transcendent, sci-fi possibilities and mumbo-jumbo that The Matrix did… but at the end of the day it’s a fun journey through time with just as much visual imagination.”
