Fight Club (2nd time) - 10/10 According to my friend's TV, this movie got two stars. What the hell, man?

Gran Torino 8/10

*spoilers*













I'd watch it again, pretty good movie. I didn't like how quick Clint go soft, like letting the father call him Walt before he tells him it's OK to call him it. If the father wanted his trust, he would have kept calling him Mr. Kowalski until that time. I pick up on the stupidest things in movies and sometimes it prevents me from enjoying them as much as I should. I also saw the ending coming from a mile away, movies don't progress like this only to end the way it acted like it was going.

TheRock wrote:Saw UP last night. Didn't really have an idea what to expect, I don't think I've even seen a trailer for it. But I have heard it getting some great reviews and drawing some crowds. Freaking spectacular. Possibly more appealing to adults than kids, but plenty for kids as well. Trying to think why I wouldn't give it a 10, but not coming up with anything. 10/10.

I have to say that this is one of the more utterly depressing movie I've seen in a long time. Maybe I was thrown off by a Pixar movie being this serious, because there were a few lighthearted moments. But overall, I came away from the movie thinking it was just a grim look at man trying very hard to make up for all the lost dreams he and his wife shared but never fulfilled. The movie has a good lesson: Take every moment for what you can make of it, but remember it's never too late to start living the life of your dreams. Still, the resolution to the central character's internal conflict came way too late, resulting in an overwhelming sense of hopelessness and loss for 75% of the film. Just to convey the general feeling of the movie, remember the opening scene of Finding Nemo after the barracuda eats his wife and all but one kid? It's like that... for about 70 minutes.

Because the theme of this movie is so serious, I would not recommend this movie for families with young kids. They won't get most of it, and the ones that do could wonder about some of the problems the little boy in the movie has to live with. Shoot, even my wife was miserable for days (dead serious... she was a wreck the entire weekend). That movie embodied many of her deepest fears about a life unlived. Needless to say, this will be the first Pixar movie we don't own.

Also, the 3D was so-so. And wth! You have to buy the 3D glasses every frickin' time?!? What a ripoff! :-t

Religulous 10/10.

I don't think it's any secret that I feel the same way that he does. ;-)

I don't think Bill Maher came off as douche-y as he normally does. The people he was asking questions to didn't really get angry much, except for that one moron trucker. ;-7

Saw it a few hours ago and I'd give it a solid 9. I didn't see the ending coming a mile away, but maybe 500 yards or so.

My friends and I made a drinking game related to the movie: for every racial slur uttered, take a shot. When we realized we'd be ridiculously wasted ridiculously fast, we changed the game to just those that Clint Eastwood utters. We ended up quitting out of fear of alcohol poisoning. :-b :-b :-b

I thought Gran Torino was awesome for the first 15 minutes, but funny racial slurs can only carry a movie for so long. the acting is terrible, the dialogue is terrible and i can't even make a comment about the plot being terrible because there wasn't one.

I haven't seen Gran Turino, but the bolded part of your quote is simply incorrect.
