Nirvana in a Peter pan movie nah I’ll probably still see this on redbox. Joe Wright has done good stuff before but man this movie seems bad. Like awful worse then any horror movie this year(except the boy next door and a few others bad. I’ll tell everyone to avoid this flick at all cost.

So… “Pan,” isn’t actually about Pan? As in Great God… you know?

Flute playing, having venereal transactions with goats Pan?

Why is there no movie about him?

not true, both the original clash of the titans and jason and the argonuats were 100% awesome !

Clash of the titans: Very slow… but very awesome.

Then there are a host of Harryhausen films based on greek myth. And some of the Odissey. And Troy was decent enough.

So, basically this is to Peter Pan what Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” was to the Alice stories, or what “Oz, The Great and Powerful” was to the Oz books, or what “Maleficent” was to “Sleeping Beauty”.

I need to re-watch the 2003 movie. Jason Isaacs was a brilliant Captain Hook/Mr. Darling.

Tim Burton Alice have at least reason for that, as it was scraped project of quite decent idea sold to Disney to repay cost, and Maleficent was also good idea but they miss the point. So this is basically Oz as they try retell better story for no reason and have any idea how made that.

The 2003 Peter Pan is probably the best film version there is. It’s criminally underrated.

Pan was actually pulled forward from it release was meant to be out around December. But as Star wars is out then then pulled it forward so it wouldn’t clash with Disney for ticket sales. It also gets ticket sales during half term too. So it clearly will be a little rushed in post preduction. I wonder how Spectre will fair, that has been moved forward too.

Okay Chris, so I think I know what they were trying to do here in “Pan,” and what was with the Nirvana, Ramones and the super fast, agressive editing and close-ness. If you’ve seen “Moulin Rouge” than “Pan” kinda makes more sense. IMHO, the film makers were going for a mix of old and new Hollywood by blending the music in with the older material, and a very specific type of editing action which is meant to maybe evoke excitement and ends up coming off as… what I’ll just call A/V slapstick. I thought the quick editing and asynchronous music… Read more »

the thing is… in Moulin Rouge (a movie I intensely dislike, but respect for the choreography and scenes) the music actually had something to do with the story – they explained the story, they expanded on the story, and they drove the story forth. Also it was a movie about artists, so all of that kinda made sense. here, the songs don’t tie into the story, they have no place in the story, and they just fall flat and distracting and plain weird – a lot like the Mama Mia movie NC reviewed not so long ago (I recommend the… Read more »

A few additional thoughts (PLEASE make an edit button!!) – Moulin Rouge is about aspiring artists and during the movie, their singing actually suggests the characters are CREATING these songs then and there, during the movie. So it actually kinda “covers” for the “but it’s an eighties song in a movie set 40 years before it was written” – you’re lead to believe the CHARACTER actually WROTE the song. – what I’m saying is… Peter Pan isn’t targeted at Nirvana and Ramones fans. Sure many rock/grunge/punk fans are gonna see it, so did I, but… it’s just NOT a movie… Read more »

OMG! As soon as you said something about a random Nirvana number… I’m sorry… I gotta see this thing. It just sounds too stupid. I gotta see! ^.^

Oops, I thought it was a sequel to “Pan’s Labyrinth”. 😉

You should watch the two part miniseries from a few years back. That does the origin story MUCH better. There was also a Treasure Island with Elijah Wood a couple years prior that was really good.

Well thanks for saving me the cost of this movie’s ticket. though the trailers for this movie I thought were laughably bad, and honestly the fact that Tiger-lily was gonna be white actually really bothered me. Like I rarely given much of a damn about race changing characters but changing Tiger-lily, it’s just like changing the race of Snow-White or the Black Panther, it just seems to dishonour the character. Also I kinda feel bad for Native Americans that the only big Native American movie character I can think of from the past few years is Jacob Black from ‘Twilight’,… Read more »

Thank you! Peter Pan deserves better.

Sounds like how I felt after seeing Inception, if you replaced “magic of Neverland” with “surreal dream worlds.”

There’s a number of reasons to not see this. 1: White washing Tiger Lily. 2: They’re not giving any money to the children’s hospital that’s suppose to receive money from any Peter Pan adaptations. 3: J.M. Barrie was a monster. It’s suspected he killed his older brother when they were kids. He forged the will that gave him custody of the boys. He wrote about how “beautiful” a naked boy is. The majority of the boys grew up to kill themselves because of what Barrie put them through. (Forget the romance in Finding Neverland. Barrie was a pedophile. You’d have… Read more »

Nirvana and Ramones were just playing on set. And cast members started singing it in costumes. And for some reason they decided to make part of the movie with characters singing.

But I liked how Jackman nailed his saber lily alter outfit
