Watched about half an hour of this, and then turned it off. It was crap. Why so many people are raving about it i don't know.

Huh?
I thought it was superb, one of the best films I have ever seen

Brilliant film, if you only watched half hour you havent given it a chance, i have to agree with Skusey's post above

are you allowed to write the word 'crap' now?

brilliant film...why not watch it all before you decide if you liked it or not?dont understand people watching half an hour of something-by that logic fight club would be a rubbish film(its not either)

I disagree, 1/2 hour is roughly a third of a film these days, and it is important that you grab the viewer from the start. If it hasn't going by then, it is far too late. The only other film i have switched off before the end is 8 Mile.

Another film i was disappointed in was Casino Royale, i managed to watch at all, but was getting pretty bored and distracted.

utterly hated it-watched it all and it just left me totally cold. missus loved it tho.

simply beyond me how it has won so many awards. the music is brilliant but it plays like a very poor straight to dvd story for me.

thats the thing about movies tho-everyone has their opinion-personally thought gran torino was the best movie recently yet not a mention from the academy.

It's a good film IMO.

One I liked recently is The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas. Very moving story.

brilliant film too

try watching "the wackness" ....really liked that film-one of my favourites this year

it was about half an hour too long in my opinion

bit overhyped and a bit overrated but not bad

not necessarily worthy of it's academy award

give it a second chance its a top film

i agree its a GOOD film but very overated wouldnt get in 10,000 top films of all time

it is a decent a film but i just dont get why it got hyped up so much imo just decent

I thought it was a good film :thumbsup: but people have different views on it but didn't think you'd think it was that bad to turn it off. I've never turnt off a movie I think but one of the worst movies I've watched was that recent kung fu movie with jet li and jackie chan see really didn't like it that I don't remember the name Forbidden something lol.

Banned

Yes. Crap, Crap Crap.

I thought SDM was a very good film too. Wouldn't say it deserved the hype, but enjoyable nonetheless.

I think SDM has done so well with box office and awards because a) it is an 'uplifing' film during this wintery economic climate, b) it was marketed as an out and out romance (which isn't true).

I enjoyed it - not a patch on the similarly styled City of God, but it has led to me shouting 'CHAIWALLAH' at people.

Hugely overrated film.

Not nearly enough machine guns.
