Complaint for Injunctive and Other Relief from "The Mutant Chronicles"
  • The most egregious example of how confusing and ridiculous all of this is can be found in a scene where Malkovich is literally reading his lines off a set of cards in his hands *snorts, falls off chair* Yep, it's true. It's all true. My dad and I inflicted the movie on ourselves one slow night. Oh boy. It was a horrible, horrible waste of talent.
  • Are we talking "Battlefield Earth"-level bad? Because if so, I am sooooooood down to watch this movie.
  • Oh, Malkovich. Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich.
  • I don't think it ever really sinks that far. The plot was incongruent but not entirely incoherent, the acting blah but never really bad, and the cinematography was certainly decent enough. We did spend the first fifteen minutes wondering if we were watching the wrong movie. It was a pity that nothing more was made of the corporation-nations, it was a pretty interesting premise. Maybe someone can do a spin-off series about that, ala Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
