    I never got that freaking movie. IMO, it was a terrible movie but people tend to love it and I'm wondering why....

    I just watched it for the first time today on MTV. I wish I could have watched an unedited version but fuck it. I thought the movie was great. Still some things I want to work out in my head, but I liked how it was filmed.

    people tend to be hipster cats and love things even more if they feel that theyre part of some small secret society that knows about a decent movie that didnt get huge press or massive box office profit.

    just like boondock saints. its a good flick, but gets mega love because of its wom and viral following.

    You ever actually done shrooms and tried watching a movie? Don't count on being able to follow a plot, just get a movie that's visually stimulating.

    I've watched it a few times and honestly it doesn't hold my attention. I get the movie it just well isn't entertaining enough to keep my enthralled.

    It's mostly popular with pseudo-intellectuals who like to talk about it more than watch it.

    ..and theres nothing wrong with that. But it certainly isn't a great film.

    I was drunk when I watched it so I thought it was trippy (I was like 18 and it was one of the first times I was drunk). Watching it again afterwards it wasn't as good, but I still like it.

    I Thought the subject matter of time travel and alternate events was handled well.
