Vanilla Sky

Personally, I hated it. I really don’t like “it was all a dream” endings or any variations thereof, so needless to say, I wasn’t impressed with the ending of Vanilla Sky (or Abre Los Ojos, for that matter). I just thought it was a cop-out—first you put tons of crazy crap in the movie, then explain it all away by saying it was a “lucid dream.”

And plus, after seeing Abre Los Ojos, I’ve lost a lot of respect for Cameron Crowe. He didn’t do anything creative with the remake, in fact, certain key scenes seemed to be shot-by-shot duplicates.
