I liked it all the way up to the end when everything was revealed. I won't say any more for those who haven't seen it, but the end was lame IMO. :)

I liken watching Vanilla sky to the experience of looking for a number in the phone book:

Frustrating

Utterly useless

and it feels like you've lost 10 hours of your life.

I bought the movie, thinking that I would like it. What was I thinking? I hated it!

Yeah, it has to be the gheyest movie I have ever seen, or close to it.

Um no offense, but what are you guys talking about? Vanilla Sky was an awesome movie, one of the years best! Tom Cruise was a great choice for that character and Kurt Russell gave the best performance of his lifetime. Definitly a movie to watch.

Did you like Royal Tenenbaums, by any chance?

I'm sorry, but the film was a complete waste of time. Tom Cruise and cameron crowe have a lot to answer for in putting that self indulgent piece of wankery out into the world...

I don't care what anybody says Penelope Cruz is HOT!!!
Cameron Diaz was hot in The Mask. What happened?? She just kind of fizzled out.....:(

Penelope Cruz is a freakin' HORSE FACED wench. She is quite literally the ugliest woman on the planet and I cringe eveytime I see see her atrocious features on a magazine of a DVD case. I seriously let out a shriek of horror when I see her horrific visage.

SHE IS FUGLY!

Cameron Diaz is quite the hottie, though. She was the only redeeming thing about Vanilla Sky.



ROLLO!

At first I thought that. But for some reason at the right angle, she is hot!! Her nose and upper lip are too close together though.

Go back to your original way of thinking. You start thinking she's hot and pretty soon it will hit you again that she is a horse-face and you'll have to go through all that again. It's safer to realize she's ugly no matter what....


ROLLO!

Cameron Diaz is hot. Penelope Cruz is not even in the same league. Especially when you see Cameron Diaz' swirling butt in Charlie's Angels ;)

EP - Penelope Cruz is a total fox. I have no idea what angle you might be seeing. Gorgeous.

I really, really enjoyed this movie. The ending was great - way outside the box of what I was expecting the movie to be.

Great soundtrack. Of course, considering Cameron Crowe was involved.

Tom Cruise is pretty much foolproof for me right now, Im enjoying his work more and more.

I would totally recommend Vanilla Sky, but I don't really blame those who didn't like it. Definitely out there.

Well, it could be her beaky nose, or her big googly eyes, or perhaps her overbite, but I think mainly it's a combination of all three that makes her look like HORSEFACE!

(Now that I've planted the images, you'll barf every time you look at her. I know I do. )

I didn't like Vanilla Sky because I just..couldn't ....empathize...with A BILLIONAIRE PRETTY BOY WHO CAROUSES WITH BEAUTIFUL WOMEN AND HAS NO FAULTS OR REGRETS.

That and I figured out the "suprise" ending about ten minutes in, but after two hours of mind numbing boredom about characters I didn't feel for, I didn't CARE about the twisty ending , which was lame and unoriginal...apparently Cameron was watching Freejack and Jacob's Ladder on late night cable (or rather the original writers were watching it ).

It wasn't a complete waste. Like I said, I enjoyed Cameron Diaz in the film. And not just for her looks. I thought her frantic performance was really good and I'd even go so far as to say she deserved a nomination of some kind. But her 10 minutes of screentime could not save this drab piece of uninspired rubbish, which until this thread brought it painfully back to mind, I had erased from my memory.

ROLLO! :)

Superb movie, yes, original, well, depends. "Vanilla Sky" is a remake of a film called "Abre los ojos" which Penelope Cruz was actually in. I enjoyed "Vanilla Sky" immensely. It's a movie that when i watch it, i notice something different or i didn't catch before.

As stated, the soundtrack is fantastic. That song "Ladies and Gentlemen, we are floating in space" is a great song. I suggest those who enjoyed the song played on the roof during the climax to dl it, it's called "Njosnavelin" by Sigur Ros. It's a great song and Sigur Ros is a wonderful band. cheers! :D

I like "The Nothing Song" by Sigur Ros. Okay, so I liked two things about this movie. That song, and Cameron Diaz.

But I've lost all respect for Cameron Crowe. (okay, not all...but some)

I thought the movie was pretty good. It kept me wondering what the heck was going on. It was a lttle drawn out though. I like these quirky movies though.

I liked Vanilla Sky, I thought it had a good complicated plot to get you thinking, but not too complicated to be disliked :).

I like this movie too. I went into it not knowing anything about it, and it turned out pretty good. I think it's one of those movies that if you're expecting too much, or know the spoilers, the movie falls flat. I'd recommend it, but I don't know that I'd watch it again.
