Who saw "Vanilla Sky"?

Here in Mexico it's still on theaters and I want to know if it's worth my money.

they do play wild honey wild honey.
as well as everything in it's right place(radiohead), an rem song i can't remember which and ladies and gentlemen we are floating in outer space(spiritualized).
very good selection of music throughout the film though i've heard U2 isn't on the soundtrack

Thanks kobyashi! I'll have to check out that soundtrack (even if U2 isn't on it, but it does have Radiohead), and I'll get around to seeing the movie soon, even though I'm not that crazy for Penelope Cruz.

Vanilla Sky is a boring film. Not only that, it is presented in a choppy manner which doesn't work as well here as it did in, say, Memento. The script is repetitive and nowhere near gripping... As for the plot, it suddenly took on a new direction which throws the audience off balance but not in a good way; rather, one goes, "Oh, please."

I saw it, basically liked it and can see how people don't like it. If you want you can read my review its at http://www.currentlyplaying.com/vanillasky.html

I doesnt give away anything critical to the story.

It is not the most enjoyable film.

The soundtrack is fantastic. Besides the named bands, there is REM on it (Sweetness follows) and the unknown but ass-kicking band Sigur Ros! Nice surprise!

foray
i just saw this film tonight and i really agree with foray. I was interested in the events for most of the movie until the "resolution" at the end. then i felt things really fell flat.

no pun intended.

and, to echo other comments, the soundtrack was incredible.

Yes, an incredible soundtrack, I like it a whole whole lot! And I also liked the movie, but I did have a problem with it because it seemed to me to be also a vehicle of Tom Cruise pushing his deranged views on people, I won't go into it, because it involves the ending and that's teh big twist, but He really believes in that stuff that appeared in the end.. And it kinda takes away a little bit.

But I also found it really really interesting or maybe just neat, that penelope cruz was in both the spanish and the english remake of the movie..
