Quotes

[first lines]
Stuart Conway: Life happens in four dimensions. Subtract time from the equation, and all you're left with is space. No motion, no change. Take away time and you change everything we know, everything we believe, everything we understand. Imagine a stopped clock. There would be no rush hour, no more rushing to get there, because you'd never be late. There would be no birth, death. No more broken hearts. Summer vacations would never end. You could never lose a job, your wife could never leave you. ...

Mere pretentiousness
16 May 2005 | by (netherlands) – See all my reviews

Slipstream obviously is a bad movie. Now there are two types of bad movies. The first is of the Steven Seagal-category: meant to be cheap fun, and that's what it is. Poor film-making, but somehow fun to watch. The second category is where Slipstream fits into: meant to be original, innovative and artful yet all you get is mere pretentious junk. A Steven Seagal-picture knows it's terrible but doesn't want to be any more than terrible. Slipstream tries to be terrific but is actually the opposite, so in the end it's annoying as hell. The whole movie you're thinking: whoever made this should be sent to prison for insulting the intelligence of man. To sum up some of the things that went wrong with this flick: 1) the director uses all kinds of advanced techniques, mostly derived from The Matrix, for no purpose at all (a little like Swordfish but a thousand times worse), 2) the acting is totally unconvincing, people dying everywhere and the protagonists behaving like nothing is the matter, 3) huge plot holes everywhere, 4) an incredible load of editing errors, 5) everything is ripped from other movies, 6) this is the worst thing I've ever seen, 7) you shouldn't watch it, 8) forget all the positive comments around here. Thank you.
