And I hated "Sweet Home Alabama." I hate any movie that states one can only find truth in a small town among the simple folks whose lives don't go beyond than hanging out at the local honky tonk and the big city is full of evil and nasty people, especially nasty career women. Ugh.

You know, Tom Cruise gets bashed a lot, and I'm not going to sit here and tell you that he's the 2nd coming of Olivier....but, he has had a pretty strong career, and he has worked with the following directors:

Ridley Scott
PT Anderson
Steven Spielberg (Twice)
Cameron Crowe (Twice)
Francis Ford Coppola
Michael Mann
Rob Reiner
Barry Levinson
Stanley Kubrick
Neil Jordan
Martin Scorcese
Oliver Stone
Ron Howard
Sydney Pollack
Brian De Palma

That's an incredibly amazing list of Directors. Again, I'm not arguing for Cruise as our greatest actor or anything, just saying that the man has had an interesting career.

Still scratching my head over the antipathy towards Clockwork Orange. Yup, book was better, the book is supposed to be better. The end of the book was different than the film, which upset Burgess to no ned, amongst other elements of the film. But, man, I just find that film mesmerizing. Then again, I know a lot of people that cannot stand anything by Kubrick, so, I'm not surprised, I'll stop scratching my head....he's not everyone's cup of tea.

Agree on Closer...did not think it horrid, but, certainly did not think it was a great film. Roberts kills it for me, agree with the earlier post about preferring Laura Linney or someone of that ilk to Roberts any day.

And, I loved Fargo, I love most of the Coen brother's work, though, again, I know plenty that dislike.

Please tell me Batman Begins will be good. I love a good action movie, and I love the Batman mythos. The director is 2 for 2, as far as I'm concerned, so I hope his first foray into this genre of blockbuster films is a strong one.

I hated pretty much everything about it.

The House of Flying Daggers. I thought that visually it was one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful and exquisite movies I've ever seen, but eye candy can get you only that far without anything resembling an interesting plot or emotional involvement. By the time the final death scene happens I was thinking, oh get over with it already!

I struggled with The Thin Red Line , although I will return to it for another viewing at some point. There's a lot going on it that film; a bit too much for me to take in from one sitting.

I really like Fargo , but I must admit, it took a while to really get into the film and realise what made it so great. It's so subversive, deceptively so. If you didn't like it the first time, really do try again

i love Mystic River about bloody time sean penn got an oscar
though i thought he did quite well on 21 grams and assasination of richard nixon as well


umm...i dont really keep up with critics so im not sure what is they love
i dont like new start wars, lord of the rings, harry potter, anything with tom hanks...or mel gibson and tom cruise [minus magnolia and vanilla sky]


but i guess if critics actually liked closckwork orange, donnie darko, fargo, usual suspects, pulp fiction, eternal sunshine on the spotless mind, american beauty then i have to conclude some of them do have good taste

Mystic River for sure. The attention that film got angered me.

Training Day is similar.


Anything with Tom Hanks in it.

I read the book Mystic River months and months before the movie came out and didn't like it so I never saw the movie. I doubt I would have liked it though.
