    Please, tell me no one else found this Ellie Goulding song extremely misplaced, not to mention cheesy. Gave the so-hated vibe of "teen movie" to Divergent.

    I wonder if that will play during this scene? :-?

    He directed R.I.P.D.....
    They really must have been scraping from the bottom of the barrel for this one. I'm pretty worried now.

    So? Just because you burned a stew, that doesn't make you a bad cook. In fact, the guy had other films that did pretty well. And R.I.P.D. was a box office failure because people thought it was a Men In Black ripoff, when actually it was a comic book adaptation.

    My problem with Robert Schwentke is that he feels like a "director-for-hire", not a director with style and substance. One would say the same for Francis Lawrence, but he, unlike Schwentke, always primed for excellent cinematographies, knew his way very well around action scenes, and proved to be a competent director of actors (Water for Elephants may be "meh", but the main trio pulled very good performances), before receiving the Catching Fire gig, in other words, he had a style, even if I found it a little dull (of course, CF changed my opinion of him completely, on this matter).

    And it's strange, because they got Neil Burger, a very stylish director, for Divergent. This is why I do agree there is space for worry, wonder if Summit is not rushing too much on the Divergent franchise.

    But, let's wait to judge, obviously.

    Well, Constantine wasn't well received by critics and audiences (at least in U.S.), and some people didn't liked I Am Legend because how different it was from the book and the CGI darkseekers. Also, Lawrence was a music director before doing films, and people of that kind are alays critizied.

    It doesn't look like Divergeng has a distinct style, and looks entirely predictable. I was an early reader of the books and found the dialogue cringeworthy the entire way through... I don't mean to pass down judgement but it looks and feels exactly as it is- a much less popular Hunger Games. You can change the name, change the story, but plot remains the same. And this doesn't even have any important social meaning whatsoever, no meta narrative, no substance. Hunger Games borders on that line but tends to tip over on the good side, while still keeping a foot in the bad side.

    Oh no, but I'm not talking about the movies in itself, but only about the work of Lawrence as a director. As I said before, I always found him kind of dull (with the exception of Water for Elephants), but he did had some remarkable skills. Constantine failed because of the story, and I Am Legend, yeah, the zombies were pretty crappy, but that's budgetary issue (or the VFX team? Don't know).

    That's because it is (almost) what you said. It really doesn't feel like something exceptional, or at least, original. When I read the book, it was far from the crap some made to be, but it was... Ok. I read it, there was nothing specially remarkable about the plot, and then I moved on with my life. That's why I'll never understand the hype on the book series, it all feels so... How could I say? Familiar.

    Soundtrack of the movie:

    And it is... Pretty solid, actually. Any OST with Tame Impala and Woodkid is cool on my list.

    This movie looks so bland, the only thing saving it for me is the soundtrack and even then it's sad hearing Zedd making a song that tastes like Valentines Day. Some of my favorite artists are on the Soundtrack so I cant wait to hear some of these tracks roll out soon...as for the movie...lol

    Some people from Oh No They Didn't saw the film in advanced screenings:

    Saw the movie, it was rather bland and cheaply made, surprisingly. The actors did a really good job, the problem is that there are not many colours, it looks cheap shot in the same building, but the actors saved it a bit.

    I saw this movie yesterday, book reader. It was okay. People are praising Shailene but idk she didnt do anything for me. Very 1 note except for her crying scene

    Jai was really good, I've never seen him in anything before. I love Miles and he made the awful character he plays likeable. I heard he does the same in TSN so I think this guy is just so likeable it reflects in his characters LOL

    Hah, spoke nothing but the truth.

    And the article is pretty biased by thinking that she will alienate fans. I mean, honestly, this is bullshit, she can take a big dump at Twilight and they will still go watch Divergent - even if it's to criticize her, the plot, etc. Twihards, after all, didn't stop The Host from flopping hard.

    So today morning I attended the press screening of Divergent. The movie was great! Good adaptation of the book. Just a few minors change that I think only purist will complain about.

    Afternoon, I went to the press conference and got the chance to take a picture with Ben Lloyd-Hughes who plays Will in Divergent.

    The evening was the red carpet premiere in Montreal. Here I saw him again and got the chance to interview him and surprisingly he speaks French so the interview was in French :)

    I was scare that the factions won't be explain good to viewers who didn't read the book but nope they started the film by explaining with Shailene narrating how it worked. I liked that. And it follows by the haircut scene like the book ;)

    And the score was great! I love the Dauntless theme :D

    How was the acting? I heard that Woodley (obviously), Miles Teller and Ashley Judd were the standouts, while Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd and Christian Madsen (Al) were or too random, or fell flat in their performances, while² Kate Winslet was kinda generic. Are some or all of these true?

    About the soundtrack, it's a "compilation" one like the Hunger Games, in which the songs don't appear in the movie, only one or two in the credits, or is it like Twilight, that the entire soundtrack is in the movie?

    Does the ending differ from the novel? I read in those screenings reactions that the movie ending had "closure", which felt kinda odd...

    Only that for now. And lucky you, dude!
