quote:

- Horrible dialogue

Disagree strongly. Dialogue was one of the strong suits of this movie, easily.
quote:

- Not a single likeable character

I loved both Phoenix's and Hoffman's characters. Especially Phoenix's. I laughed out loud several times during the movie.
quote:

- Plot just meanders and meanders and meanders

I'll grant this one. It didn't seem to be going anywhere, other than just to tell a story. But that was good enough for me.
quote:

- End of movie unsatisfying (the only reason we didn't walk out is that we thought somehow the movie would redeem itself toward the end.)

I mean, it didn't rise to a surprising climax or anything, but I didn't find the ending unsatisfying. It was in tune with the way the entire movie had gone.

I didn't love it (like I expected to), but I'd definitely consider it a good movie. 7/10 for me.

Froman, I'm sorry. I didn't know you were still in the closet.

Apologies my new gay friend.

Well welcome friend.

Here is why you got such shitty responses, you didn't give any reasons why or anything. And your thread title is labeled in such a way that if someone does like it, they like shitty movies.

Having said that, it would have been very easy for some of the earlier asshats just to say "what didn't you like about it" instead of being asshats.

Unfortunately, the movie board is getting that way as of late. We used to be above that kind of snittyness.

The Master
88% approval, 8.2/10

The Dark Knight Rises
87% approval, 8.0/10

Thanks - I suppose I could have been more subtle. But, the point was I thought it was bad enough to start a thread, so I didn't want to pull any punches. I'll be interested to see, as more and more folks see it, what I might have missed.

Fun Bunch and Jizz: Wow....the snobbery is thick up in here! See the movie and then I'd really like to know your honest opinion on it. I guess I just "didn't get" the movie. Must be my lack of refinement, deficient IQ or something else.

Kev: Its not we're trying to be "snobbery", its just a simple as this.

If you would have seen "TWBB" and really appreciated it, you would have made the effort to go back and watch all of PTA's films...

His movies aren't for everyone, but the fact that you came on here and said it is a "horrible, POS", and then continued to say that the only other movie of his you had seen is TWBB, just told us what we needed to know

Its unfortunate that you don't like his movies, because I think their great......

That's cool. If you like it, I'm not going to criticize your tastes. Let us know what you think after you check it out.

I'm looking forward to seeing this, but I'm sure not going to spend 25 bucks in the movies. I will wait till it comes out on netflix. Anyone see it and feel like its a must see in the theater?

I almost went yesterday but it was only showing at one theater. I have a serious man crush on PSH.

You can always just wait to DL it too

This movie sucked ... That is all. Twbb was fantastic. My opinion matters now.

For real though. This movie sucked, characters were great though.
