Looks like typical hipster fodder, but what made this especially bad?

word, and i fell for it...hard.

twenty minutes into it, boredom reared its head, but aesthetically i was hooked. an hour later i walked out, had a cigarette, and got my hamiltons back.

all in all, its just fucking boring.

No fucking lie, I couldn't finish the fucker. There were so many opportunities to see her breasts, that and Rip Torn as King Louis ruined it.

Dudes, I already brought this up a week ago, but nobody chimed in.

SLOWWWWW. Beautifully shot, but mind numbingly slow and boring. It also uses Gang of Four in the opening credits, which may or may not annoy the shit out of you. That bitch tries too hard to be cool...

I am fully prepared to believe this movie blows, but I will not sit idly by while you bad mouth Rip Torn, the greatest actor of all time. There's no way he ruined anything. Are you telling me "the movie would have been great with Patrick Stewart or Peter O'Toole as King Louie, but Rip Torn ruined it."? I'm totally going to see this movie now (I didn't even know Rip was in it) just to prove you wrong, and then we will duel publicly so that I might defend Rip Torn's honor.

And she is so so so not.

I have admittedly liked all the production images from it though--gorgeous and the set designer is KK from The Screamers. At first I thought that was just more hipster bs for idiot Sofia, but he is *good*.

Adaptation was good!

I don't tend to pay attention to set designer's names...until I recognized his on Lost in Translation, so I looked it up and alas, same guy. Still, obviously, it retains some hipster cache, regardless of his talent. Look at everyone's reaction here.

Can we name other equally talented set designers? I cannot.
