    i know all that.


    the fact it has only made 8 million is excellent, considering it is only playing in 389 screens (expanding into 389 over the weekend, since it was only in about 120 theaters the previous week and even less before that)

    to put it in perspective, Cloverfield is playing in 3400 screens

    I've sometimes got to wonder about films documenting the lives of mob bosses, corporate tycoons and robber barons. There isn't a lot of difference between these personalities of these mover-and-shaker types of men. And even though those films often take care to reveal the ruthlessness and take-no-prisoners mentality of the central character, I sometimes get the feeling that such films glorify notoriety as the most important human characteristic above anything else.

    Is anyone looking forward to this movie? Another pretentious title for a movie. When I first hear the name of the movie I was thinking of "30 Days of Night" ( a Great vampire movie)

    Daniel Day Lewis looks like a cartoon character to me. When I saw the previews of "Gangs of New York" I thought he looked like something our of Popeye.

    Yes definitely looking forward to seeing this movie, I want to see all the best picture nominees before I become too biased towards juno and no country for old men.

    It could have. I did a search for "there will be blood" and that thread did not come out on the whole first page. Obviously the search feature needs to be improved.

    Sorry, I don't come here to do homework.

    There is NO reason why that should not be the first result on the first page. The only reason would be a bad search feature.

    I'm looking forward to watching this & No Country For Old Men & Sweeny Todd & Atonement & The Assination Of Jesse James & ... I really need to catch up :redface:

    I have listened to the No Country For Old men soundtrack a few times, which is good if a little short.

    paul thomas anderson only gets better and better. Punch drunk love really fucking amazed me, albeit i was really high on shrooms when I saw it but I watched it again and it still held up. all of his movies are at least an 8/10 or better. best american film maker alive in my opinion. plus the dude is incredibly film literate, puts tarintino to shame.

    The soundtrack by Johnny Greenwood (Radiohead) is very nice as well.

    I got torrents of no country for old men and the atonement sitting on my hard drive.. old men looks like a *good* one but atonement seems like a real bore. Victorian melancholy has been done to death.

    I saw it on Jan. 26th, as it just got a wider release after a few weeks of being on a smaller number of screens.

    It's another great performance by Daniel Day-Lewis. You have to see and hear his "normal" appearance to appreciate how totally he becomes his characters. As a total film I didn't enjoy it as much as "No Country For Old Men" because Day-Lewis pretty much is the entire movie. It's worth seeing. And if he wins the Oscar for it, he'll have deserved it.

    I gave it 4 of 5 stars on Netflix.
