    I wasn't angry so much as frustrated and sad for them. But it wasn't a typical sci fi movie about kids bucking the system and escaping their fate - it was about making the most of the time you have. They were all so calm and accepting about it because they knew nothing else.

    Re: Never Let Me Go. The book is one of my favorite books in the world. To me it isn't a sci-fi book, at all, it's about what it means to be human.

    There was no way I was gonna go see the movie and ruin the book for myself.

    I haven't read the book but apparently the movie sticks closely to the themes and atmosphere. The movie isn't sci fi at all - just the concept. That's why even though I felt frustrated at their inertia, it fit the rest of the movie because it wasn't a futuristic kids-rebel-against-authority-with-lots-of-cool-laser-weapons type of film. It was more like an idyllic English countryside with a horrible undercurrent of what's really going on but society (and the kids) accept it.

    This movie really got to me obviously as I'm still mulling over it a week later.

    It wasnt that bad, I admit. In fact it was good. And Josh Brolin did a spot on impression of K. The film went at a quick pace and not one scene was wasted. The thing is, I realized that what many people said before is true. Apparently the film took so long because it had no Act 3. Well, watching the film, you can see they threw Act 3 together. The whole thing about Js father was unneeded IMHO or there should have been much more build up towards it. And if theyre implying what I think they are then thats flat out ridiculous. I dont want to reveal it for fear of spoiling. Anyone else see it?

    I watched it. My damn DVR cut off the first and last 5 minutes of each night so I missed some (like Johnse's rescue!). I enjoyed it. I thought I would be distracted by Costner but actually, I liked his performance more than Paxton's.

    We DVR'd it too. It's the classic American tale of what happens when you give hillbillies alcohol and guns.

    I liked the movie but it wasn't great, just kinda average. I liked the twist at the end that you're talking about It seemed like closure to the series.... until the announce MIB 4 if they haven't already.

    I saw Prometheus yesterday. Loved it! It's really, really good. Although they don't quite answer the questions they set out to and instead leave it open to a sequel. Still, I enjoyed it. I'm not a big Noomi Rapace fan at all, her face always look so off to me like it's full of fillers or cheek implants or something but I think that might just be her natural face.

    Snow White and the Huntsman. Beautiful film, horrible writing and the direction is hopeless IMO.

    21 Jump Street - it was funny but I felt like I was meant to laugh more. Definitely one for movie with the nephews and nieces.

    That hopelessness made me angry actually, their lives were so cruel, I wanted something good to happen to them in the end, but their inertia really bugged me.
    I liked that it was not another "the island" type of movie, the atmosphere, the helplessness of the characters made "never let me go" really interesting, but I can't help it, I don't like characters who complain a lot, are not happy about their situation, but just sit there and wait. I wish they had at least questionned their situation and what they're on Earth for, instead of being so accepting.

    Prometheus

    Liked it but it didn't blow me away. Very tight pace, unexpected moments, sly humour and all around amazing special effects and performances.

    8/10
    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    because of the discussion here i watched "never let me go", too.
    i agree that it was a great movie and it'll probably be in my head for a long time. you definitely have to be in the right mood and be prepared for what you're getting yourself into.

I wished they would have tried to fight to save themselves but I guess that wasn't the point. Excellent movie but icant say I enjoyed it.

    at first i was angry at the characters for not rebelling and for being so passive, too, but i think that's where the brainwashing sets in. they don't know the real world and how to live another (normal) life, in the scene where they're at the restaurant, they have no idea how to talk to the waitress or what to order. the stories they were told at school about what would happen if they left reminded me of "the village" and that probably sticked to them even in adulthood. they also knew they were being seen by the outside world as something less human, so why would they try to escape. they didn't like their purpose/destiny, but they accepted it anyway, because they didn't know any better.

    i loved the last scene where she says "maybe we're not different at all, we all die and feel we didn't have enough time".

    i also really liked the scene where they meet the school director again. it's disturbing when she says "we needed it to see if you had any soul at all", but at the same time she's in a wheelchair, so while she supported the system, she didn't "use" it herself (at least that's what i got out of the scene).

    Act of Valor- Now mind you these guys are actual Navy SEALS, so the acting is stiff and wooden, BUT you see how fucking badass these guys are. I actually loved it.

    ETA: The Grey: Love me some Liam Neeson, the movie lagged a little in the beginning but about 20-ish minutes in, it really gets goin. You have to really pay attention to what Neeson does in the beginning to understand the clip after the credits. Man fuck that being out in the wilderness while being tracked by wolves!
    Who do I have to fuck to get off this boat?
