I looked and looked but didn't see a thread for this, which surprises me, 'cause this seems like the kind of movie this board would be all over.

It's an awfully good movie. In mood and feeling I might describe it as a cross between V for Vendetta and 28 Days Later (although I think it's better than either of those) -- dark and violent, with a distopian future that's worth discussing after the movie's over. It's got a couple of really great action sequences as well, which surprised me -- I didn't know much about it going in, and expected something "artier." (Not to imply that it's without artistic merit or anything -- I just wasn't expecting tense action scenes.)

I doubt it'll be my favorite movie of the year (I haven't seen Pan's Labyrinth yet) but I'd be surprised if it didn't end up in the top ten.

Just saw this with friends last night. AWESOME movie. I enjoyed the acting from Clive Owen. And Micheal Caine was just great in this. I really don't know if this is a spoiler or not but I liked that they never even tried to explain why no one could get pregnant anymore. I read that some people were upset by this but I don't think the movie was trying to focus on that.

Yeah, this movie is amazing beginning to end. The soundtrack is fantastic, featuring a little Radiohead and some Jarvis Cocker even! This may be my favorite movie Cuaron has made, and I LOVED Great Expectations.

Fantastic flick. Nobody is really talking about this flick in terms of Oscar buzz, but it is easily one of the best of the year, and it will be a crime if it doesn't get the cinematography award.



I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

I have not seen it yet, but I'm told STAY ALL THE WAY TO THE END OF THE CLOSING CREDITS for an extra scene.
