Splice

Okay. So I had 2 free tickets for a special preview screening of Splice tonight. With the director present for live Q&A after the film. (Which was an incredibly cool opportunity.)

The short of it. Spoiler free.

The movie was good. It was thought-provoking. The special effects were excellent. The story flowed pretty well. The themes. Oh god, I could talk about the ethics and the science and the gender role issues in this film for hours upon hours.

Splice is a modern day adaptation of Frankenstein. And it is just as disturbing and thoughtful as Frankenstein is meant to be.
It is good, and I advise seeing it.

I'm glad I got to have director Q&A after the film, because it added knowing the intent and hearing how the audience received the movie.

A note of warning.
This movie is disturbing. It earns its R rating in a couple of ways and I am so freaking disturbed right now.
But I think it was so worth seeing.

(Spoiler-ific review will be written when I get around to reviewing the last 3 movies I've seen.)
