Haha Nice. It's awesome to see other people that love that movie like I do. :P

Red-"You don't think I can take danger?"
Saul-"You can"
Red-"Yes, I can. You see this *shows hairless armpits* No hair."
Dale-"What's the significance of that?"
Red-"It makes me aerodynamic when I fight. I can take danger." Epic.

I loved it. I don't know why it took me so long to buy it. I think my favorite will always be Chewed Up though.

Same . He's probably my favourite living comedian, and his show's pretty great as well.

An intriguing premise spoiled by some truly WTF moments and an uneven tone throughout. I wish the director would go back to making low budget movies as Cube was amazing and everything else has been a let down.

Frank Langella is absolutely majestic in this and so are the rest of the cast but this is a one watch deal for me but worth that watch definitely.

I FINALLY got around to watching this. This is funny because I literally live where this film is set. I pass that train depot to get to my girlfriend's house every single day. A few scenes were filmed in Hoboken and PA but otherwise I felt like it was filmed in my backyard. There is more out here than Richard Kind explained by the way, and the two hick douche's only exist in small numbers but it was still cool to watch. Anyway the film is a wonderful little indie that doesn't have to have a lot happening to be engrossing. This is largely due to the soundtrack and lead performances which were all great. One of the better movies to watch on a rainy day.

8/10



I was expecting a lot more with this film. This is no way means it's a bad film because I think that it's supposed to be subtle and realistic. It was a wonderfully shot film but I just had a lot of expectations that weren't met. I think it's because as a whole, abortion has never really bothered me. I understand the argument against it but to me it's a medical operation albeit a very dark one. Perhaps that opinion will change one day. Anyway the film is obviously a very important one and I did really like it. Sometimes you just construct a movie in your head and when you actually watch it it just doesn't look like the one you created.

8/10



Unless Mel Gibson delivers a Daniel Day Lewis performance in a film, I think he'll never be the A list actor/director that he once was. He was fantastic in this one. The story and film overall was decent but the acting was just too good. I liked it. People need to just get over this whole Gibson think because we're missing a lot of opportunities to see a great actor work. I hope he keeps getting under the radar films like this because at least I'll be watching.

7.5/10

The Station Agent is a gorgeous little film. Great choice.

Children of Men is one of the most beautifully shot films of all time. The story had some holes but it was also pretty good. I love watching it.

Absolutely agree. Dinklage was very engrossing, far from the sideshow I initially thought upon renting it. I was very impressed with it also, and I would love to drive past this scenery everyday like Exo.

Exo, I am still a supporter of Gibson, I can separate the lunacy his personal life has become, from the man I first grew interested in watching Gallipoli. I think Apocalypto was an awesome venture for Gibson he can really direct on a high scale. Despite its disney ending I still find myself popping Apocalypto in because its just so F-ing brutal. Mel is Mad ****ing Max, that in itself is worthy of praise.
