Eastern Promises

I really want to see this movie, though none of my friends around ehre have any interest in seeing a movie that deals with an underground slave trade


I've been reading good things about it too, so I may go see it on my own tonight.

Anybody else intrigued?

Rarely have i hated a movie as much as I hated A History of Violence, so I doubt I will see this one.

I never saw that though I wanted to. The plot of this one is more interesting to me though.

well. I just heard a review on NPR

and they say it is not as good as HoV

I would have given HoV 4/5 stars

they say there is even more violence in this, i don't like extreme violence, but will still watch if I find the film worth while over all
I look away at those times,




It is opening only in a few theaters this week end

in a couple of weeks it will go wide

So U2dem, we can go then, you drive.

I really liked History of Violence and have seen trailers for this one, but haven't heard much about it, like what it's about.

I think it has to do with the Russian mafia. And Viggo's dick is not in a box

I've heard wildly mixed reviews about this one, but that's the case with any Cronenberg film. I disliked A History of Violence when I first saw it, but it's grown on a lot on me every time I've seen it since.

There's a chance I'll be seeing this one some time this weekend, hopefully tonight, so I'll be sure to post a review if I do so. Reviews I've seen say it's either one of the best things Cronenberg's done, that it was slightly better than AHOV, worse than AHOV, and I've ever seen it compared to The Godfather.

Only way to know is to see it.

You mean where's my movie... My friend are fucking terrible with keeping commitments. They want to go see the sneak preview of The Kingdom today now, which I might just do instead. Probably see Eastern Promises Sunday now or sometime next weekend.

So because your friends broke a commitment to you, you felt it was ok to break your commitment to us?

Kids...

Fear not. There is forgiveness and grace here.

(The kind that I would bet good money is evident at the end of Eastern Promises - and that folks is what we call a professional segue.)
