Is this how you wanna make it?

Yep, interpretation is a huge part in films, just like in music where musicians rarely explain their lyrics for sake of the listeners' own imaginations.

What made me believe was this review from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/review/RJSC0OR...cm_cr_rdp_perm

If you simply imagine the plots in real life situations, you will find that these things quite don't make sense.

That's very interesting. I watched it last night but I will certainly watch it again soon with all those points in mind.

Does anyone else want to chime in on this? Surely there are several posters here who have an opinion for this discussion.

81/100

This is one of the few movies that heavily features a child actor that I genuinely enjoyed. F*ck Meryl Streep! Dustin Hoffman was great.

Oh wow, Paper Moon. Now that is a great ****ing movie. Haven't seen it in a long time though. Both Ryan and Tatum O'Neal were fantastic in it.

I tried to watch I Am Sam but couldn't do it after watching Tropic Thunder. It basically killed it for me..in a good way.

Robert Downey Jr. is one funny n1gga

Dakota Fanning was good. Sean Penn went full-retard and made the movie into a comedy.

Hitman - 7/10 not a bad movie.

Denzel Washington plays an up-and-coming boxer who is charged with a murder he didn't commit. He writes a novel about his life, which draws the attention of a young African-American male who lives with Caucasian Canadians. The Canadians and the young boy try their best to get an appeal for Hurricane.
The movie is very interesting overall. Plus, it's based on a true story, which has been exaggerated just a bit, so that makes it just a bit more interesting, IMO.

I'm going to check this out man thanks. "buying" it right now.

John Goodman was also good as a supporting actor.

I also watched There will be blood yesterday, and it's a 9.5/10 in my book. Just an outstading film. Daniel Day-Lewis was just immense, probably one of the best performances by an actor I've ever seen.

Checking this out now as well.

Captain America - 6/10 I liked it.. did Chris Evans really look that skinny?
