The Germs section was too good. Darby is the epitome of remedial English badass/dropout.

I saw it. Was a little disappointed to be honest. Danny Boyle is one of my favourite directors, but I found the first half of the movie to resemble a deoderant commercial. Long shots of extreme mountain biking with what might as well be a childs garage band loop playing over it. The music actually took away from how good the rest of it was. The story its self is amazing, and James Franco destroys, but I found it pretty cheesey at times.

Replace Danny Boyle with The Coens, and 127 hours with True Grit and this is exactly how I felt. Not like a commercial but I've never had music take away from a movie so much. They may as well have put in the Price is Right fail horn everytime someone was killed.

Pretty sick of heist movie plots, but at least the dialogue was super well done for the most part.

I was surprised to find out it was from 2005 because I've never heard a word about it.
was very, very, let down by the ending of this movie.

Hmm, gonna have to disagree because I didn't take a whole lot of notice to the music being there, which makes me think I remember it being appropriate. I LOVED True Grit. That girl was phenominal.

i watched it last night and i'd have to agree, the music seemed misplaced throughout the movie. 
i think silence would've been better in some of the scenes but the movie in itself was pretty good. 
i'm pretty sure i have adult ADD and it held my short attention span.

Definitley one of the best films I've seen recently and I've been catching up on a lot of watch-before-you-die movies lately. Can't wait to see what the future holds for Christopher Nolan, that guy is a genius.



This was great too, but is was advertised as "the documentary that will set the distorted image of Jim shown in the Oliver Stone-movie straight" and I don't really think it was that much different. A lot of scenes were really similar, if not identical to the movie and while this was definitley more realistic and believeable, it doesn't differ that much from the movie. Maybe some Doors/Morrisson purists (a group I claim to be in myself) would disagree, but I don't care. I liked the movie (you just don't have to take it too literally and you have to realize it's romanticised and hollywood-ized) and I also loved this documentary, great piece of work.

Yeah she was great, the whole cast was amazing, not one bad performance. Just a little disappointed thats all, my own damn fault for getting too hyped. I was going in expecting something darker more like No Country but it was very different.

I don't think you're the only one. Everyone in the theater was pretty much brain dead until the final gun showdowns. The trailers definitely made the film look a lot more action packed. I think for the lack of action there was, the dialogue kept me glued. Was still a terrific Coen's film. I don't think anyone could have done it any better. I'm already ready for their next one. I still haven't gotten around to A Serious Man and Lady Killers.

If you weren't laughing through True Grit you'll probably hate A Serious Man.

Oh I did, just saying the people around me weren't. Especially loved when Damon and Bridges shot the cornbread out of the air. Probably my favorite scene.
