StaggerLee Scrapple Since: 3.10.02 From: Right side of the tracks Since last post: 9 hours Last activity: 9 hours # 1 Posted on 7.12.09 0145.33 | Instant Rating: 3.03 Saw this last night. FIRST, it is NOT a love triangle, as the trailers suggest. A totally heartbreaking movie that had the entire audience crying at the end. I don't want to give too much away, but Tobey McGuire was so completely awesome in this, he deserves some award nominations. POWERFUL story about a guy with post traumatic stress disorder. Don't take a first date to this flick. But, do check it out. The first hour and a half was a bit slow, but the last thirty minutes saved it, and made it worth seeing. Promote this thread!

The bullet points I wanted to make - This is an excellently directed and well written film. - I'd disagree it started slow, and it made the last 20 minutes even more powerful and intense. - One of the best movies of 2009. http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/9471.html
IT'S TRUE! IT'S DAMN TRUE!

Good movie, but kind of a victim of the Over-Revealing Trailer. I wish that scene of Maguire asking Gyllenhaal hadn't been included in the previews, since that was a holy shit moment if there ever was one. Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read Agreed on Maguire getting some award attention, this was arguably the best role I've ever seen him in. Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.
Well that was a complete change of pace. Not in a bad way though IMO. It did a good job of introducing a ton of new characters and setting the stage for the politics side of the plot.
