KBell has it for his sig. I liked reading the bits I've read. But I hate Keanu Reeves trying to be serious. He's no good at it, so this movie really doesn't interest me.

And it's not animation, it's real actors but a filter(rotoscope animation filter) was used to get the cel shading, the director has done this in another film, but the name escapes me right now.

Based on a story by Phillip K Dick, eh? I don't know. I was kind of ambivalent about Blade Runner (based on his short story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep). I don't really like dystopian scifi...maybe if it gets good reviews I'll watch it.

Agh, the fake animation looks too... fake. Some of it just looks plain real with outlines on it. And it keeps convulsing. Boo. :P

And by convulsing, I don't mean the part's where they're actually morphing into other things, I mean the parts where they're just sitting there.

Looks neat, but inaccurate.

im pretty excited about this, since i rather like most all of Phillip K Dicks works that i have read. Even the Blade Runner movie, while taking a lot of liberties from the book, was still really good :)
