You are insane. This is one of the best films that's been released in the last 12 months.

Really? Haven't seen this one yet, but ben looking forward to watching it. What didn't you like?

This was truly the bost boring, uneventful, over-hyped film I have ever seen in 30 years on this planet.

Words cannot describe how much of a waste of 2.5 hrs this film is.
#10
watch it with an open mind and no expecations and i think you'll be surprised at how it picks up pace and intrique, its a great film and at this price an absolute bargain.
#11
Ok film but the end was really lame imho!! Good price, cheapest by quite a bit so regardless of what I thought of film adding some heat

So well said, worst film of the year for me so far
#13
A very intense, slow burning film that everyone in this flat enjoyed.

I have to confess that I have stopped buying DVD's; I have over 320 films that ideally should now be BluRay. Most of my DVD's were available at 80p each at a boot sale.

4 Oscars including "Best Picture"
74th on IMDB's Top 250 films of all time
A score of 91 on MetaCritic based on 37 reviews.

I honestly don't know how some people don't like it!

But then again, I absolutely HATE the LOTR trilogy, so I can hardly criticise peoples tastes!!!

I thought this film was absolutely stunning and deserved the oscars it got!
Heat added and ordered!!!

I watched this film two weeks ago and it was a good film except for the weirdest ending i have ever seen in a film! be warned.
#17
this film is boring with some slight areas which are good.the editing is well done but overall lacks a sense of direction.quite poor really

it is a good price if you like/liked it btw
#18
Films which rely on storyline and acting instead of explosions and hot girls often meet with criticism for being "boring" ;-)

I've not seen it yet, and since all films in the World ever end up at some point being £5 or less on DVD, I won't be buying it at this price either, but I will when it's cheaper.

I know people are entitled to opinions - but yours is just plain wrong. It is my opinion, that anyone who doesn't like this film fits into one of two categories;

1) Dumb
2) Insane

:)

Awesome film, one of the best films I've seen in the last few years. Voted HOT!

:thumbsup: Wasn't the worst film I've ever seen but definitely uneventful and over-hyped and quite possible one of the most laughable baddies in a film, lumbering around with his dirty great big bottle :lol:, good price for a average film.

P.S. I'm am neither Dumb nor Insane, Thank you.

Everyone else on this forum manages to have their own opinion without being offensive...you should try it some time.

Awesome film, great price. Im not sure what people who dont like this movie are talking about, its a classic. But hey each to there own i suppose! Anyone who hasnt seen it, watch it its awesome! Unless you think the die hard films are the pinaccle of movie making acheivment, ya cant go to wrong with this film. (and yes i do appreciate die hard type movies if the mood takes me! but bit more to think about in a movie like No Country)

Worryingly true! This isn't a run-of-the-mill summer blockbuster, and that's a simple enough review to put plenty of people off. :-D

didnt know it had got any oscars if i had known that i might not have hired it , oscars usually mean some **** story with no guns

but im glad i see this film its just a bit mental

Great film. Just a shame they thought about every thing apart from a decent ending.
#26
Going by Awards is a false ecomony...films are entirely subjective, and if you think a film is good simply because someone else did then you're a sheep.

Well it's based on a book, and they stuck rigidly to the original text - the end scene is a word-for-word recreation, exactly as it was written. The end of the film is the end of the book. :)

I can see why the Cohen brothers wanted it, just their type of ending!

In that case i'll blame the book and author then. Cormac McCarthy isn't it?

The greatest hairstyle ever seen in a film!
#31
A film of unimaginable quality. But maybe the cinematography won't be as impressive on DVD as it was in the cinema.
#32
The film's unconventional. It's a signature Coen Bros film and meant to be a bit leftfield.

A quick interpretation of the ending to help out those that find it 'weird'. It's meant to be a bit more like real life than most Hollywood films, meaning that odd things happen in real life too.

SPOILER ALERT!

Sometimes the unexpected changes things, like how the main character is caught out by something other than an obvious ending with the villain chasing him and a confrontation where one of them dies.

The detective 'hero' (Tommy Lee Jones' sherrif) doesn't solve the case. In this case, the poor sod runs out of steam 'cos he's old and tired, while the two guys he's chasing are younger, fitter and sharper with a lot of motivation. He's always one step behind and never gonna catch up.

The villain sometimes gets away with stuff, although he gets a bit of karmic justice with a random car crash injury. It might slow him down and lead to his demise or capture, or be a temporary stumbling block, but we'll never know, eh?

For an ending that will REALLY hacks off people that expect everything in movie plots to be tied up in a nice, neat conclusion, try Limbo (John Sayles, US, 1999).

Got to agree - I was looking forward to it and was very disappointed, some would call it Art House, I would call it disjointed!

Why do you automatically assume that people that don't like the ending find it weird or don't get it?

Have you looked at all the posts regarding problems with the ending? Specifically RichardRichards who says "I watched this film two weeks ago and it was a good film except for the weirdest ending i have ever seen in a film! be warned."

I didn't assume anything, I'm explaining why it's an unusual ending and what some of it might mean, based on someone saying they think it's weird!

Why do you automatically assume I'm being patronising or finding fault with people that don't like the ending? I'm discussing the film, not the posters' attitudes.

great price for a top film - i bought the hmv steelbook exclusive version, and most steelbook releases are good films. i can see why some hate it and some love it. those who prefer terminator or another action film wont like it as much as those who like the coen like films.

I didn't automatically assume that you were being patronising in my last post, but then I suppose a step-by-step hand holding walk-through for the benefit of people that don't quite get it in your view could be regarded as being patronising and it looks like you've rightly perceived it as that anyway.
#38
I really like the Coen Bros, their films normally have "something" (Millers Crossing is one of the great films last 25 years, Raising Arizona is hilarious, etc) but I saw this film once and didnt "geddit". So I thought I wasnt in a good mood to watch it or something, so a week later I coughed up my dosh to see it again and again I didnt quite "geddit" again.It has some great moments, but seems a bit inconsequential to me and is probably the worst of the Coen Bros movies (But I didnt like Fargo too much).

I'd agree with you if you were right, but I wasn't being patronising nor think I was, I just saw your implication.

It was clear that you took my explanantion as a personal attack when I clearly wasn't responding to your comment about the ending. I pointed out that others might need a 'step-by-step hand holding walk-through' as you put it, because lots of comments have been made about an odd ending. It's not that they 'don't quite get it in my view', they admitted to being troubled by the ending not resolving things in a satisfactory manner, as have lots of people elsewhere!

If you've got a problem with someone spreading a little knowledge or opinion and would rather remain ignorant, please feel free to ignore other peoples' posts. You've clearly got a chip on your shoulder regarding this and I can't understand why you've been stirred up into getting on the defensive in the first place. Would you take the same attitude with a teacher or anybody who knows or understands something you don't?
