I really liked it. Will Smith is one of my favorite actors and he delivers again. Rosario Dawson is one of the hottest women alive. Just a good emotional flick that urges you to think a little bit.


I really liked it as well, gave it an 8.5 on here i believe( A positive review from me is shocking, I know :-b ) but really, this is one of those films where i truly don`t understand how no one seemed to like it.

I understand it. It's weird. I understand why people wouldn't like it, and I understand why I did, but I'm struggling to put into words either of those reasons. :-b

This is my first ever viewing of this film, and it is as close to perfect as i have seen in a movie in a long time. i know i get ragged on a bit about my positive reviews, but this is really a must see...Absolute perfect depiction of what hardcore drug addiction can do to a persons life. Jared Leto and Jennifer Connelly are both great( With the latter looking quite sexy, i might add) and this is really one of the best movies i think i have ever witnessed.


one of the most overrated movies ive ever seen along with boondock saints.

You didn't like Boondock? I've never seen it but some of my friends have told me that it should be #1 on my list of movies to watch.

I just looked it up on a few sites; it has a 7.9/10 on IMDb but only a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. :-?

Zodiac 7.5/10

-Entertaining, some parts were fairly annoying. From what I understand they stuck to the facts though which was a plus. It definitely dragged out though. By no means a must-see, but a fairly good movie ;-D

The House Of Seven Corpses (1974) - 5/10

I like 1970s horror films, but this is a bit cheaper then some of the others I have seen.
Still has a creepy interesting atmosphere, but not that amazing overall.

a very underrated movie in my eyes. i really enjoyed zodiac. id probably give it an 8.


there is such a cult following of both boondock saints and requiem for a dream (especially in college circles) that everyone seems to think these two movies are masterpieces. neither were terrible, but not what they're hyped to be imo.

It was an indie film, so most critics did not even bother to rate it.

Boondock saints was a pretty good movie, but i wouldn't say it should be number 1 on your list. I'd give it a 8/10.

Slumdog Millionare - it was pretty good, no real complaints, but nothing i'd really ever want to see again which makes it hard for me to give it a better rating. Frieda Pinto or whatever her name is is hot
8/10

Any movie with a cult following is probably somewhat overrated, but I can't think of a more overrated movie than Boondock Saints. I liked Requiem For a Dream though.
