I haven't seen it yet but a friend of mine complained that despite the long run time they don't really go deep enough with characterization so the audience has little attachment and the events have no impact. I don't know how much of that is due to the nature of the story or if there really was a writing problem though.

i recently saw Cloud Atlas... it really reminded me of a Disney movie thats made for adults

Was it any good? I could never figure out from the trailer what the hell it was supposed to be about.

yeh its about past lives somewhat, the same actors play different characters in different time periods and the movie keeps switching back and forth constantly

it also focuses on what buddhists call "interdependent origination" or "indras net" - or in other words, everything is connected and affects everything else, endlessly.. its somewhat related to the modern concept of the "butterfly effect" i think

it was entertaining... but ultimately not very "profound" which it seemed to want to be - however that may be due to the fact that i am quite familiar with these kinds of concepts in many different forms

hence the "disney" reference.. it seemed like a childish and watered down version of the idea, presented in a bombastic and epic way - with a fair amount of bloody violence and some nudity thrown in

its another book adaptation, which i havent read - my friends have indicated "the book is way better" which is usually the case anyway

i will say that for me, even at 3 hours it didnt really drag or anything.. id recommend it if you can keep your expectations low

It's about a group of people who's paths continually cross through multiple lives, via reincarnation. I enjoyed it.

Given the economies of scale needed to make a console viable, I assume they'll use off the shelf parts with a custom O/S, if in fact this is more than just a rumor.

Disney? Considering the wealth of IP they own and create, they are one of the worst to monetize that via games. It always felt as if games were just a secondary option to them, so an own console seems ... odd.

If anything I'd bet this is for the Theme Parks like the Mickey you could buy that would tell you what was going on where in the parks.
