Yeah I didn't mind the Nokia thing first time around -- but now that I see it more and more on DVD it kind of irks me. And the same thing with that floating robocop character in the beginning. Just saying also I would not otherwise mind lens-flare as a storytelling device. Just that the way my head reacts it makes me feel physically ill. And as for intrusive cinematic technique in general... i dunno. Everyone has to be "spectacular" these days when why can't they just content themselves with telling a good story?
Have you ever danced with a Tribble in the pale moonlight?
