Yeah I'm just f*cking with you. Truthfully I've only seen it once and it didn't do anything for me. Coincidentally the same thing happened with NCFoM, didn't like it at first, then it grew on me and now It's probably a top 20 movie. I've never thought about giving TWBB a second chance. Maybe in the future.
I know and respect that the movie is well made, but sometimes even the best movies fail to grab the viewer. This was one of them I guess.
I felt the EXACT same way until I saw it a second time, at which point I was promptly blown the f*ck away by it. There Will be Blood that is. Weird how that happens.
great acting. About the Red Army militant group of Germany. It goes into their bombing, robberies, and rioting strategies.I just felt like the ending was a little rushed, but overall good screen writing.
I watched that about 6 months ago. I thought it was really good, yet I hardly remember anything about it.
There will be Blood is not set in the 40's through 70's. It's set around 1900.
If I was thinking period movies for this time frame, I would think of a trio of detective movies
Devil in a Blue Dress
A great and entertaining movie that set in the contemporary New York of the 1970's in The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3. A great movie.....not the remake. The remake didn't make any sense at all because the whole point was that it was set in a pretty much bankrupt city.
No Country for Old Men was one of the best movie experiences, I ever had. I'm a big fan of the Coen Brothers and Cormac McCarthy and I had heard rave reviews about it for a while, so I was primed for it. Saw it in a theater on the big screen and within 5-10 minutes, any doubt or skepticism that you normally bring to a movie was just wiped away and I was ready to go any place that movie took me. Right about when they show the beginning of the hunting scenes..I really felt like I was somewhere out in West Texas.
I bought the blu ray of that several months before I bought a big TV and that was the first blu ray I watched. The first 5/6th of that movie is genius.
that's a movie? I thought it was a mini series, that is why I was reluctant to download it.
It did play in theaters in the US, but it originated as a miniseries. That was mainly due to the amount of material they had to cover. It's 5.5 hours. It basically works as a film though and was directed by one of France's top directors. It was shown at the Cannes Film Festival, and most people thought it would have won the top prizes, but it wasn't in competition because it originated on TV.
They actually released several cuts of the movie, but go for the mini-series length, it's worth it.
