Brusimm Box Office ReportI guess all the hype about Cloud Atlas fell short on half the ears out there because it seemed to fall a bit short at the box office.

While if you were to believe the ads about this incredibly timeless movie called Cloud Atlas, it seems the message or story it was trying to tell was a bit clouded.

When I first started seeing ads for Cloud Atlas, the trailers seemed pretty ADHD.  One moment they’re in ancient times, the next they were swinging from a frigate in the open seas, and the next, scooting around in futuristic hover-cars.

And if you waited for movie reviews to hit the press, those two were just as fragmented as the trailer.  The reviews ranged from being the most incredible story ever told to a descriptor of it being a hot mess of a story.

My guess is if you liked Pulp Fiction in the day, you might like this movie.  But that’s only a guess since I didn’t go out of my way to see Cloud Altas.
