Apocalypto Was Very Good
 
I went and saw this movie last night and it was great, I didn't want it to end! If you like history you'll love this. It started off slow but that was to get you to know the characters...then it just took off and never slowed down. Very cool.

I already saw this couple of weeks ago, this guy going to AMerica and learn the culture, he's from kazakstan, there was funny moments and Pamela Anderson was in the movie too, I agree its a cool movie.

I'm boycotting anything Mel Gibson or Tom Cruise. They both have too much money and they're obviously insane. I might rent it from Netflix when it comes out on dvd, but I'm not going to pay money to see it in the box office, knowing that some of that money will end up in Gibson's Jew-hating pockets. (and I'm not Jewish)

Also, from a practical standpoint, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard on the radio that this movie is done completely in subtitles because he wanted it to have authentic languages.

WTF is that? The movie is viewed by english speaking people, not ancient Mayan speaking. Why the hell would he do that, no matter how much realism it adds?

I liked the subtitles, makes it feel "realer" for some reason. More believable.

guess i'll never watch it. I cannot watch a movie with subtitles at all. I focus more on reading the subtitles, and have no clue what's going on in the background.
I remember when Brotherhood of the Wolf first came out on dvd and it was in French, i think, but the whole movie was subtitled. I tried watching it twice , then just gave up.

so this would be Gibsons second movie that has subtitles right? didn't the one about Jesus have subs?

was it about the mayas or the aztec? if it was about the mayas it wasn't historically correct at all. its good because its thrilling and gruesome but its not amazing.

what's up w/ mel gibson and using subtitles in his movies? maybe he'll release the braille version of a movie for blind people. could u imagine trying to watch a porno with subtitles? :confusedshrug:

anyway, i thought the movie looked like it would be interesting. i won't go see it though.

It had to be Aztecs by the way the movie ended. But basically the "Mayan way of life". Really there wasn't enough dialogue in the movie to make you miss anything while trying to read. It was more of an action flick, and to see how people did things back then was crazy.

yeah if people can't read fast enough to see the movie at the same time then they are too dumb to see complicated movies anyway, not that this movie was complicated.

I like how Gibs takes care enough to make the characteres in Passion speak a fancy foreign language for the purpose of accuracy, then they have a white guy play Jesus.

subtitles were a nice effect. To be honest tho, I thought the movie was wack. Good action/gruesome scenes, but othen than that it was a waste of time and money. There isnt really a storyline...

Best Damn Movie In Awhile!
 
BEST DAMN MOVIE IN AWHILE

All bad reviews are political driven that fire at Mel but have nothing to do with the movie/story itself.:hammerhead:

Hard Ass Movie!

Your a Dip$hit if you don't see this movie. Or your just into chick flicks.:sleeping
