I mean I think that's the nature of the tragedy of the story. Tragedies are often some of the most poignant and effective stories that can represent the human condition very well.

This particular story just happens to be a staple of American literature that is a timeless classic dissected in mostly all American high schools and colleges.

What a shitty story and movie. So in the end, you chase your dreams and you get shot and killed. The ****.
Yep what an out of touch story, writer probably didn't know America existed back then.

Did you feel like you would've liked it more had the characters been different? I loved a lot of it, but felt the kid came off a little too douchey, particularly in the obviously scripted sequences that were dialogues that just don't exist in real life. Like the one with his Girlfriend when he's in high school. Or the one with the photography teacher. And normally that unnaturalistic feel of dialogue doesn't bother me much. But in this case because so much of the rest of the film felt so natural it did a bit.

Is this sarcasm? My sarcasm meter isn't swaying one way or the other. I hope it is sarcasm

Anybody see Sin City 2 yet? I loved the first, was excited for the 2nd, and then my excitement fizzled when it finally came out (lack of word of mouth, subpar reviews). If anybody has seen it, I'm curious on your thoughts of seeing it in theaters vs waiting for DVD.

I reviewed it a couple pages back. I saw like a noon showing on the big BTX super screen in 3D last Saturday.

I think I gave it like a low 70s. I was a big fan of the first one too, and had the same sense you did. I wasn't sure, but I had just left work and had nothing going on.

It wasn't particularly good. Everything felt more piecemealed than the first one. The story arcs were smaller and less dramatic. But the stylized stuff was what it was.

I also remember being surprised the 3D wasn't more featured. There were some cool 3D moments, but since that's so identified by it's art style, I thought for sure it would really blow out the 3D.

Overall I'd say you're fine waiting for the DVD. But if you did like the first one then it's not like you'll hate this.

Need to rewatch to understand some parts. It was great though I enjoyed it. Must be the oldest movie I've ever seen lol.

AI is horrible, it's painful to watch, the characters are unlikable pretty much all over, and then there is a coda designed to make you not feel pissed leaving the theater. There are very few movies I'd want to see again less than this.

I saw it years ago once or twice, and I own it. It is good, but I never viewed it as a masterpiece like many do.
