    I'm excited. The cast alone would get me in the theater.

    I think it looks awesome, and when you have a stellar cast like that, it be hard to mess it up.

    Looking forward to seeing it. I didn't like "No Country For Old Men", so I am not sure what to expect...

    wow, no kidding. I am finding that I'm getting mixed reviews with NCFOM. Either you loved it or you hated it. Can you tell me why you didnt' like it?

    Looks like a solid B from the reviewers.

    As much as I would like to give you an in depth dissection of the movie, I am just no good with that sort of thing. I will just say there was nothing about the movie that drew me in. I thought it dragged half of the time and the other half just seemed randomly confusing.

    Typical randomness brought to you by the Coen brothers. I thought that it mixed comedy with violence quite well....with the typical quirky story and ending.

    Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and John Malcovich were great.

    I give it a 7 or maybe 7.5 out of 10. Good for a Saturday afternoon flick.

    What was the point in watching that movie?

    It wasn't funny. It had no point what so ever.

    No Country for Old Men was made by them right?
    That was amazing. I haven't heard of anything else made by them.

    Makes sense then, since NCFOM was just them directing a story not written by them.

    Don't see Fargo, The Big Lebowski or Raising Arizona :mamoru:

    I personally enjoyed the hell out of it. Then again I love heavily character-driven stories with crazy dialogue and plots. If you are a Coen Brothers fan you probably wont be disappointed.

    The axe scene still haunts me days later!

    I loved it, I am going to watch it again.

    I couldn't stop laughing and wanted more. I thought it ended perfectly too.

    Yes, and the closet scene too, out of nowhere.

    Such a hilarious satire on the CIA and the inner-workings.
