liked both movies and was riveted in each until about the two thirds part of the movie... however, both endings were a bit off the mark in my opinion... TWBB had a better ending, so I voted for it over No Country..

To get you to post a response. You got a problem with that?

I think you were looking for Tampa's response, not mine. :-D ;-)

If you really get into a movie (like I did with these two), I find you don't even really notice the length.

I find it odd when people complain about the lengths of movies, specially if they are like barely 2 hours. If your life really that action packed or are you that impatient. Theres a lot of good movies that I love that are long but I wish were longer.

Yes but my attention span nowadays is like 90 min for a movie. If I see a movie 120 or more then I make sure that it is worth sitting down for.

The Dark Knight is supposed to be 2 1/2 hours, so you better pop a few Adderall before that guy.

I'll definitely see that in the theaters. Action/drama like Batman is well worth it.

I guess I'm just getting too old. When we go out to see a movie, we always go to the first shows on weekends after the movie has been out for a few weeks and pay $10 for two admissions. It's rare that we will go see a movie twice a month.

It's so much better to sit home than having to worry about people talking or kicking my chair or blocking my view, etc.
