Moviebox: 5/1 - 5/8 Immortel

Postby LiQuid » Apr 26th, 2010 @ 2:45am

Immortel. I've never seen this flick, but I've heard/read a little about it. It was recommended to me by a bro I've seen dozens of movies with. It's one of those bonkers ass, all-digital flicks (like Sky Captain, Casshern, et al) and it's supposedly a mash up of every sci-fi movie ever made with a bunch of Egyptian bullshit thrown in for good measure. It's made by French people, but entirely English language. I've read reviews where people have sung its praises, and reviews where people have nearly killed themselves rather than finish it. Sounds like a great movie to spur some Moviebox discourse!

Trailer? Sure!



Amazon link to purchase (beware the Super Saver shipping if you want to get this in time!)

I know it's available via Netflix, but unless I give those cocksuckers $8 I don't know if it's available streaming (someone check and let me know please). (update: not available via streaming)

It's also available via your favorite torrent site if, like me, you're either extremely poor, or despise the French.

You have your mission, Movieboxers. Now get the fuck on it!

Also, thanks to Bobloblaw for reminding me to make this thread. Unofficially it should be the duty of whomever picks the current movie to remind whomever is next that they should make the thread to get their pick started at least a week before the watch date.

that made me chuckle...

looks pretty interesting thought! never even heard of the movie, ill have to look into a torrent or something, as that seems to be the only way to get it short of amazon.

Edit: its apparently out on blu-ray, which I must say is suprising, but nice! its up for 16 bucks canadian on amazon (so like 16.50 for you americans, your money is worthless ahahahahaha!*cough*)

It kind of reminds me of Equilibrium, don't ask me why. Netflix told me it is more like Dark City though.

I like that pyramid on the DVD cover. I half expect Jaffa to come marching out, maybe a Goa'uld or two, and even a Chappa'ai showing up somewhere in the movie.

My recent love of Stargate approves this post.

I've never heard of it but it sounds interesting.

You should probably put this in the OP, just to help keep tract of who's turn it is.

Reminds you as in you've already seen it? Or just the visual style of it? I kinda picked this on the assumption that it was so obscure that even a bunch of geeks might have missed it. I'll actually be kind of disappointed if someone's actually seen it. :)

eX: done.

I hope everyone doesn't start doing this or else we're going to end up watching some really REALLY bad stuff.

Obviously that's not the only reason I picked it. I was going to go with something at least I'd seen, but this was brought up and sounded interesting. Even if I end up hating it, the premise alone is weird enough to justify the viewing.

No I haven't seen it, I just meant based on the picture you posted and the description.


Just watched the trailer. This is either going to be completely awesome or downright awful.

I had trouble watching the preview. I may need copious amounts of bourbon to make it to the end of the movie.

This should come in on Saturday. It will give me time to rip it to my iPod Touch for the train ride to and from work.

I doubt the lack graphic or sound fidelity is going to affect this masterpiece one way or another. I'm impressed with your testicle fortitude to watch this in public mass transit. :)

I remember watching Grandma's Boy on the train and when the titty seen came up i had to tilt the phone towards the window. But it's not as bad as the guy that watches porn on his.

One time there was this old guy on the bus, he had an iPhone and was watching something trying to be inconspicuous, but his headphones weren't in all the way, he was watching porn. It was very awkward.
