It's retarded when people get back from some action flick or a comedy and QQ because it isn't 'The Godfather' or whatever other movie that people love.

I really liked it because I had no expectations going in other than the ones that I listed in my review, so I wasn't disappointed, lol. It was a good, standard action movie. The story wasn't boring at all; pretty linear maybe, but not boring. It was so fast paced that I don't see how anybody could be bored with it. A lot of people like to shit on Colin Farrell, but he was fine in this movie. Biel was good. Beckinsale was pretty good too.

Damn, I was hoping you had seen the original and still liked this one. I believe one of the reasons this is getting tore apart by critics and fans is because it is inferior to the original, so it would make sense that those who had not seen the original would enjoy this more than those who have. And to your point about this being a movie to go to for the action and not the story, the original had decent action, but the story is actually the better part of it. To me, the 1990 version was the best storyline out of all of Arnold's movies.

I will be renting this new version to make up my own opinion on this film, but my expectations are too low to justify paying theater costs.

Wow, what a terrible film, especially the ending.

4/10.

That is actually my favorite M. Night film. 9/10 for me.

I was feeling it for a good part of the movie... but after I put it together about 15 min before the ending it all fell apart for me...

How can you give such a high score with such a low ending?

I actually really liked the end. I loved the idea that they were opposites the whole movie, therefore, it makes sense that Mr. Glass was such a bad guy in the end. Maybe it would be different if my first viewing of it wasn't when I was in high school and I figured out the ending in the first 15 minutes, but that just wasn't my viewing experience.

Requiem for a Dream - 9/10. The title of the movie is so damn perfect for everything that happens in this film. I was surprised at how good Marlon Wayans was, but Ellen Burstyn (the mom) stole the show in terms of acting. The film really dug deep into the human psyche and the power of drugs and greed/desire. I really enjoyed it and will have to watch again.

God Bless America: 7/10. Pretty funny movie, kind of reminded me of Kick Ass but more vulgar.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? - 9/10. I haven't seen a whole lot of the Coen Brothers, but this was fantastic. It was easy to follow the parallels to The Odyssey and the storyline had its own quirks as well. It was pretty hilarious as well, and George Clooney is one of my favorites. Very well made film.
