do NOT see the book of eli. the first half was ok... they set up a great post-apocalyptic universe - it felt more like nostalgia to the fallout games than anything though. but it got old fast after the second "let me effortlessly kill every mother****** in the vicinity" scene.

the ending "twists" are laughable (spoilers coming, but knowing them them will not ruin it in any way, trust me. they will just soften the blow when you see it)... they reveal he's blind in some huge "gotcha" moment - this is long AFTER we already know he's an invincible prophet who's on a mission jesus verbally gave him, and we see him hunting, fighting, sniping, conversing with normal mannerisms, and doing other things blind people could never fucking do. only underlines how ridiculous it all is, made me actually give shayamalan's stupid twists some credit.

LOL! Do you know why it brought in only $12 million? It was in limited release the entire time like The Road is now; it wasn't even playing in several states.

Edit: Rotten Tomatos is just one site, but they compile reviews from all national movie reviewers. Check around if you want... you're clearly in the vast minority. You can not like it if you want, that's fine... just make sure you understand what you're not liking, that's all. Some people think it's cool to be "different" than the majority.

if it was such a limited release why did it play in all of the chain theaters here?

I don't know about Canada, but distribution here was scant for most of its release time because the previous Iraq War movies all tanked bigtime, which made theater owners nervous. Doesn't matter though... it's one of the most critically acclaimed movies in a while.

Then you have this:

quote:
It held the highest per-screen-average of any movie playing theatrically in the United States for the first two weeks of its release, gradually moving into the top 20 chart with much wider-released, bigger budget studio films.


and this:

quote:
According to an article in the Springfield, Illinois State Journal-Register, there is a shortage of film prints of The Hurt Locker. Distributors are telling theater owners that they will have to wait weeks or months past the initial U.S. release date, to get the few available prints that are already in distribution. “Sometimes the distributors goof up,” said a film buyer for one theater, “they misjudge how wide they should go."

I tend to love military movies, so it is why i was really disappointed by it. It was just so cookie cutter and bordering on propaganda.

This is what's strange to hear... to me, movies like Rendition and In The Vally of Elah were propoganda films, which is why they tanked; they were so anti-war way too soon. The Hurt Locker didn't feel that way at all; it was rather minimal on the cliches, kept the politics mostly out, and didn't project a pro or anti war theme too much in either direction. It's getting such good recognition because it's not cookie cutter IMO, but instead focuses on the mind of the soldier and what it is inside him that makes him willing to put his life at risk in that manner each day.

we do not agree and share totally opposite political views and that is ok.

I just endured a piece of shit movie called Case 39. It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The director, Christian Alvart is so fucking awful that he makes Rob Zombie look like Martin Scorsese.

He managed to make a horror movie that should already be abysmal based on the script and Renee Zellweger alone, even worse by directing it like a Fallout Boy video.

I want my 90 minutes back.
