    I must be the only person who thought that the movie was rediculous.

    I was sooo excited to see it that I went the day it came out and was speechless...in a bad way.

    Maybe I'm one of those who just didn't get the idea of the movie. Was the movie about Josh Brolin's character, Javier Bardem or Tommy Lee Jones?

    All I know is that any movie where the lead character dies thirty minutes before the movie ends is probably not a great one.


    If you understood it, can someone please explain to me what I was supposed to get from the movie?

    When will they learn that explosions make a movie like flames painted on a race car make it go faster.

    the movie is about tommy lee jones' character, to actually discuss the movie though the thread should probably have a spoilers alert in the title.

    ...so it was about man's inhumanity towards man? I guess I'll just have to watch it again to catch that.

    I thought it was very well done. I could be stretching the limits of art here,...but wasn't it also an indictment on warfare in that military men come back home to a world devoid of peace and comfort, everything they fought for, only to be privy to violent selfishness (inhumanity)?

    it could be read (the book) or seen as an indictment of war, but i dont think for those reasons.

    ^^Why would I PM you when I can tell that you'd just harrass me because I didn't get the movie?

    There wasn't anything stupid about my comment.

    not your comment, fallon's comment was stupid. i'd be willing to actually discuss the movie but because of the ending i dont want to give away spoilers.

    I liked it and not only because it was a brilliant adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel.

    I really want to see this movie, but like every other one I'll probably just wait 'til it comes out on DVD. I'm also excited to see it since it was filmed partly in my hometown.

    I thought it was about the distance between humanity and inhumanity. The ending was shitty.

    I didnt care for this movie at all. I thought it was boring and violent. I might watch it again and give it a second chance.

    I thought it was good but not great. I did not like the long lingering scene of the medication being loaded into the syringes.

    The ending was dumb...(think Sopranos.)

    I hate movies with pretentious titles where the title is not even mentioned in the movie. At one point they do talk about old people and how hard life is for them, but that is it.
