I just saw this for the first time last night. I was expecting a lot better. The content interested and the acting was great but it just didn't seem as good as everyone was saying. It seemed they added in 45 minutes of the wrong type of fluff to the movie. What are your reactions to the movie?

I liked the movie, but then again I went into the movie with no expectations. That is the key really. If you hear from a bunch of people that a movie is really awesome... just ignore them. In fact.. assume the movie is going to suck. That way, no matter what happens you won't be disappointed.

Hyping a movie is the entertainment equivalent of getting your SO's name tattooed on your body - it's just going to jinx the hell out of the whole thing.

I really enjoyed Gangs of New York; I thought it was one of the best films I've seen in a very long time.

No I didn't buy into the hype, I really didn't care about the movie. I was just like oh coo, another historical movie. I didn't start to really care about the hype until afterwards. I just question why so many people thought it was such a fantastic movie.

I lost faith in the academy years ago. They can suck my balls. Critics suck too. Only my opinion matters and if you disagree with me, you too can suck my balls. Ah America.

That explains why there are so many Robert Jordan fans, too.

Oh my god, I think I've fallen in love with this site. I'm flipping through the Lloyd Alexander book ones and laughing my ass off. I loved those books when I was little. Wish I knew what the hell I did with 'em.
Ooh, and I think I want to make "Montag kills Captain, runs away, and joins strange BOOK people. The city is DESTROYED." a sig somewhere.

"No! Nothing! Go away! Close the door!"

That's that weird movie with the school trying to train gay people to be straight or something? It's very Tim Burton. I thought it was pretty good. It's got that hot punky chick from the faculty, so i'm in. I think ironduke has it on DVD somewhere.
