Who here has seen it? What did you think? I loved it. The visuals, acting, dialogue, absolutely everything was just amazing. It's pretty long, but definatly a contender for a few academy awards.

I liked it very much.

I wrote a review of sorts for it in my blog a few weeks ago. http://www.gamespot.com/users/carolynmichelle/show_blog_entry.php?topic_id=m-100-25175280

Everyone should go see this movie! I read the book about 10 years ago when it came out. It was one of those books I could not stop thinking about for weeks... even months.

The movie is very well done and an incredible first film for Sean Penn as director. And if you like the movie read the book too!

This is easily the best movie I have seen in a few years.

Like what scenes?

Emile Hirsch wasn't great but was pretty good. That roll would have been perfect for Leonardo DiCaprio but he was probably too old to pull it off now.

Like the bar scene, where they yell that phrase *forget it* back and forth for like 5 minutes.

Was that a book your whole class had to read or did you choose it?

Well yeah thats because Vince Vaughn couldnt act his way out of a paper bag. But that was a very small scene/part of the movie.

And they yell "Society" back and forth not "foget it". And that entire scene is is like 2 mins long so they didnt yell it anywhere near 5 mins.

Nice Avatar, Juno is very good too. Great directing. I love how they make you think Garner is going to be weird/evil one and then Bateman ends up being the bad one!

Tied with No Country for Old Men as my favorite movie of the year. Absolutely amazing movie. I was in Alaska while they were filming it and stayed at the same hotel (and saw) as Sean Penn and crew.

It's a good film. Not one of the best, but one of the better works this year.

Once was enough for me.

This was my least favorite "hipster-indie comedy with token Best Picture nod" yet. I liked it okay anyway.
