  2. I disagree, the movie rocks...the only way to suck for someone is to wait for a standart ratatata war film and find out that the thin red line was way more philoshophical and way more dope in directional skills...a very pleasant surprise for me.

    I wanted to see it when it was out in the theaters...but I never got around to it.

    I'll put it on the list...but there are quite a few in front of it.
  5. I dunno, imo all actors kicked major ass on that one, even the newjacks like that dude behind sean penn in that flick..uficknA

    on an unrelated note, i also have a TRL tshirt, its the shit

    Yeah, this movie is hype.
  9. One of the few war movies I havent seen, mainly due to my negative Penn-feelings.
    With these recommendations I will check it out.

    great film. looks amazing.

    David Gordon Green, director of George Washington, said once that before every shoot he goes on he watches the Thin Red Line for inspiration. I don't blame him.

    this movie's amazing. and there were so many cameos because terrence malick hadn't made a film since the early 80's or something. people were dying to be in it.

    malick's other stuff is pretty amazing, too. badlands, for example.

    an cameo is when an actor appears as himself or herself.
    but i hear what you're saying, i find it annoying when they give the famous actor a close up as if to say 'look, Famous Actor is here!' , when all it says is that X number of close ups were written into their contract.

    Thin Red Line = :thumbsup:
