Let’s see… I’ve been following this film since I heard about it last year. From all the posters, still images, trailers & keeping up to date when the film was playing at a film festival I been hyped for some time now & once I’ve heard it got picked up & it’s going to be in theaters I couldn’t wait to see what Massiveness this film brings. Once I saw the theatrical trailer on the internets I go even pumped & once I saw the trailers on T.v. I told myself I’m not going to watch any of them because I want the “That came out of nowhere experience” & believe me DZ fans the Massive one got his money worth. The date was set Splice was opening June 4, 2010 & on Sunday the 6th my brother in arms & myself went to the theater & had a Massive time. The theater wasn’t packed by no means about 30 people in all with a few people getting there while the film was already 20 minutes in. The crowed was cool & didn’t have any non Massive movie goers. As for the film I really enjoyed it… I saw it twice, that’s two times, if you will. The creature (Dren) looked great I didn’t have any problems with the CGI & the acting was good by Adrien Brody & Sarah Polley. Well seeing Adrien Brody’s nose on a titan tron wasn’t that appalling, if you will. The story itself was good with the whole making life in a tube & I didn’t think of this film being a Species rip off. I did notice that there wasn’t much on locations. You had the lab, farm house, apartment & the wilderness outside. I have red that a few people was taken out of the film because of one maybe two scenes towards the end. I myself wasn’t taken out of the film one bit. Oh & that dancing scene, I was really looking forward to it but once they played that music I was kinda was like, really why that kind of music. Go more classical Doiner thought. The deaths were good but that poor cat, awww… Also the film had more than a few comical moments the crowd & myself laughed but that music they played while they were dancing… Anyway. I can’t wait for this film to hit DVD & check out the special features. I give Splice (2010) an Massiv out of Massive.
Some of the previews / trailers I saw were Piranha 3D, The Last Exorcism & Jonah Hex. Have a good one. Massive!
