First of all, I liked it. I think. I want to see it again and pay more attention to the beginning for the use of colors, since they become so important later on. There are some very... cinematic... moments. The sound was either incredible or horrible, I'm not sure. Several times I though something was actually happening in the back of the theater. It was interesting, but distracting. I had a few issues with plot and dialogue which interrupted my suspension of disbelief, as well. The combat was decent, and took a slightly different and stylized approach than I recall seeing before. I had some issues with small stuff such as how much sword tips wavered in the hands of so-called 'experts' who had mastered speed and precision to an inhuman level. My main issue was with the King/Emporer/whatever - there's a section in which I feel he becomes very whiny. Otherwise, I loved the character. The Jet Li character struck me as having both good and bad moments - I'm not sure which one won out in the end. The other major issue I have is the sheer number of arrows in the arrow scenes - I'm sorry, but 500 archers do NOT generate 10K+ arrows from a single volley. The CGI arrows were decent, but I think they tried too hard to make them seem realistic with varying flight paths, and ruined the black cloud effect by drawing attention to those bits.
We did end up going to the store after, but I crashed soon after we go home due to this damn lingering headache. It's been off and on all day every day since Sat or so. I wanted to take a turn on the shiatsu massage chair, but ended up forgetting until after I was almost asleep.
I woke up around 3am, and got up for a bit before I felt tired enough to head back to bed.
I woke up just before my alarm and turned it off, and slept in a bit. I got to work and was just a minute or so too late to get my normal parking spot.
Now I'm just kinda bored, I've got stuff coming up to do, but no real data or urgency yet. I'm also feeling quite not up to digging into php code today, so no progress there.
