    I liked Death Proof overall, but my God it was so slow and dull whenever it wasn't doing something awesome.
    True but a lot of those old Grindhouse films were like that and that's why I think Taratino did that intentionally. Did anyone else think that movie was supposed to take place in 1975 until the random cell phone was whipped out?

    No, I couldnt' stand it.

    (Ducking as I type this watching out for the sniper bullets that both Scott H. & Bulletproof will fire at me for thinking this) to me both of these films suffer from the same problem, snobbish eliteism thinking about how American films must have an ending so they go to the opposite extremes.

    Beautiy is in the eye of the beholder I understand and just call me an idiot but I actually happen to like to walk away from something with closure. Or if it is open ended then that is because there is another film coming ala L.O.R. fellowship of the ring.
    Scott H hasn't been around in quite awhile. Surprised you didn't like No Country

    I sent a message to Scott to discuss No Country for Old Men a month or so ago but never got a response.

    I thought both There Will Be Blood and No Country For Old Men were amazing films.

    Similar to Gangs of New York I thought Daniel Day Lewis really pulled you in with his acting but there's no chance I could sit down and watch either movie again. Too long. The characters take you on a long journey and dump you off with no where to go.

    I was amused by the relationship between his character and the preacher through the years but it wasn't enough to sustain the movie.

    I thought it was interesting. The ending was better than the last half leading up to it. Worth watching once.

    Not great.

    Wow is sucked. Too slow paced, didnt like the storyline. Just not good in my books

    Horton Hears a Who

    Great Great movie. Animation was great and I loved the story. I didnt know it before the movie but I want to read it after seeing the movie.

    Yeah, easily my two faves this year. Give the acting edge to TWBB and the writing edge to No Country. I'd say directing was a push, surprisingly. The soundtrack to TWBB was hauntingly good in addition.

    Both NCFOM and TWBB had me interested throughout, they were pretty to look at, but ultimately it was a ride to Vegas where I get kicked out of the car about 10 miles short of the city.

    Glory - at least it didn't begin with 'Based on a true story.'

    These two links, looked them up after I watched it, include some of the mistakes. But it's not about that. It's about dramatizing/emotionalizing (Hollywoodizing) of events that actually (sort of) happened. The obvious message is that free blacks and some slaves played a pivotal role in winning the Civil War for the Union. But the way it does it is so contrived but with so little regard to the environment surrounding the characters (see the Confederate side). I'm convinced the spiritual/hymn was completely inaccurate and that most of the work they did amounted to the amount of work a 4th grader would do for a class project. Look, Zwick is pretty good at explosions and presenting a very easily digestible comment on race or ethnicity but has nothing to offer people who actually think and discuss these issues considering his approach to storytelling (make it emotional with orchestral music). How some people can see it as a great war movie is beyond me.

    It didn't feel very true to me is the answer to your question.

    You're the first person I've met who didn't like that movie. It's a favorite of mine, actually. First saw it in 8th grade.

    How is it like to live life without a heart, Aesop?

    Glory is one of the most moving, emotional and gut-wrenching movies ever made. No, it's by no means an accurate depiction of anything...but it's an incredibly gripping and amazingly well-acted film.

    It's also Denzel's best performance. And I'm a big Denzel fan but, IMO, it's not even close (okay, maybe Malcolm).

    And if your room doesn't get incredibly dusty
    Spoiler Spoiler:
    then you might be completely dead inside.

    In fact, Glory may have more truly moving scenes than any other movie I can think of aside from Schindler's List.

    Saw "awake" last night.

    Meh....it was ok. Not good, not bad. Glad I didn't spend money at the Theatre to see it though.

    What's it like?
    I can't remember, ask Eddy Curry.


    Both those flicks were made for the purpose of making people sad without ever telling a story or paying respect to the real people involved. I don't know how to explain my love for art or people who try to make it; or otoh my disdain or unoriginality, cliche, or sappy, pseudo-romantic conventionality which are all exhibited to perfection in Zwicks work. Schindler's is still better because it's epic and there's some actual research (which is the benchmark of moving an audience with some idea of the material) though Speilberg corrupts as usual.

    You want an emotionally poignant ending to a film, watch Paths of Glory by a real filmmaker.
