    A History of Violence

    Discussion started by Weapon X - Oct 4, 2005

    I never read the graphic novel by John Wagner, but I hear this is a very worthy adaptation.

    This movie was great. I ain't gonna spoil (nor should anyone else), but if you want a really good character study, this is it.

    If you ADD kids can manage to sit on your hands for a couple of hours, I strongly recommend doing it in the theatre watching this.

    Cronenberg's best movie since The Fly, EASILY.

    Also, they managed to squeeze in some serious humour into the flick. I was laughing out loud in the theare, and I rarely do that. Go see it!

    My buddy and myself thought the movie was hilarious, but the old people in the theatre didn't quite catch on. Cronenberg fully knew what he was doing.

    Oh, man - what a good film.

    -------

    Tease, seeking said that Lord of War is good, and Corpse Bride has to be decent. I want to see that soon - maybe after Serenity.

    Its a really good movie but it isn't for everyone. You have to be into cinematography and getting into the head of the people who put it together. The story is decent but too many emotional moments make it feel slow...

    See it, but don't expect anything before hand...

    I'm a Cronenburg fan, liked his shitty old movies like Scanners and Videodrome. I didn't even know about this movie, I don't watch TV anymore so I don't see trailers unless someone tells me to go find one.

    I'll check it out. Sounds nifty.

    Scanners and Videodrome are about as far from shitty as it gets. I don't think Cronenburg has made a film that I didn't like, and I've seen them all.



    This one was great.

    I haven't left the theater with that quiet air of "holy fucking shit" draped around me since I saw "City of God" in theaters. Absolutely fucking amazing.



    Also, I agree 100% with King Bling about "The Constant Gardener".

    this movie looks really good.

    ed harris is the man
    such an underrated actor


    i'll take the advice

    however,
    i think the $8 cost of a movie is not worth it anymore.
    it's gotta be some special effects/cinematography monster to be worth that price
    no?
    unfortunately, my not going to see quieter movies in the theaters will only serve to undermine the studios' motivation to make smaller films.
