I was gonna razz you, but when I realized that A) you're in OZ, and B) I haven't seen it yet, I decided to say...

 

...No, but I hear it's good.

Never in my movie seeing history have I watched a movie start out completely amazing and turn to a steaming pile of shit.

 

The movie had so much potential, and the first 1 to 1.5hr was godlike. Then it all comes apart like Britney Spears' career.

 

the characters had very little connection to each other. the primary guy in the movie, the vietnam vet, had such a good story building around him only to fucking off him without showing any details

 

and how many anonymous mexicans can they possibly put in the movie?

I saw it the other night.

I think it is my new favorite movie.

Definitely the best movie I have seen in a few years.

 

I have to see it again though.

Because the ending was blurry.

Due to chugging 3 Sparks in about 20 minutes before the movie.

Then splitting a bucket of beers with the dude during the movie.

Next time I need to go to a theater that doesn't serve beer.

Because I have no self-control.

 

It was radical though.

And if there is one thing I am most excellent at, it's knowing what is and what isn't totally radical.

Uh.

Damn.

 

I must have been totally ripped.

Now that I think about it.

I don't remember anything about the end.

Nothing at all.

mccarthy is one of my favorite authors

i never saw "all the pretty horses" because i heard it got turned into a real sensitive type film, which as a book it is not. the whole border trilogy was outstanding.

 

as far as this movie goes, it was a very accurate adaptation, but the things that made it an oustanding book, didn't come across in the movie.

ie. ed tom's dialogue between each chapter; most is lost, and that was some of my favorite stuff. the shootout w/ the mexicans in town (hotel #2) was very different.

 

as far as being unhappy w/ the ending: the book is a little different in the layout, the movie left out what i thought was pretty key dialogue towards wrapping the story up. i thought it was decent, but not incredible, as always, book>movie.

i totally agree with you about the border trilogy. its an amazing series. 'all the pretty horses' film wasnt so bad. its a movie of a book - there are bad 8 out 10 times. you shouldnt def see it though. its interesting to see some images, hear the great dialogue mccarthy is known for.

blood meridian is an excellent book too. check it out.

 

as for 'no country," an absolute amazing film. im a big javier bardem film and what a great role he played. i hope this helps him out in this country and leads to bigger hollywood films for him. im sure he gets offers, since outside of this country he is generally well known already as a great actor.

I thought it was quite decent. Wasn't all "shoot-em up" and the events were the most realistic of any drug money movie i've seen, none of the fairytale bull that gets put out, something that added to the experience. Could have been executed a little better, but I was satisfied with the money spent to watch it. And I really liked the look of the main protagonist, don't know his name and don't really want to, it will probably take away from the character in the movie, as he was really cool to look at/nohomo, he was just rather sadistic. :huh:

most people don't get confused at the end, but they suck.
