    I liked it, but I thought it was too predictable to be as great as everyone said it was. The fundamental story wasn't particularly new, and this telling didn't provide any especially unique new elements. It was sort of a good retelling of a story we've all heard before. I guess, given all the acclaim, I expected more novelty. I also thought it could have been more dense - either more story or less runtime.


    I will say that the ending was a decent twist. About halfway through, I (jokingly) told MrsG I would be completely impressed if Walt went on a rampage and killed all the gangbangers. I thought the way it ended was a pretty cool take on that.

    i guess the fact i didnt really have much in the way of expectations made it better for me. also, what you said in the spolier, that was what made it really good for me. sad as f*ck, but a great ending. i also thought it was a fairly touching story.

    Dude... have I steered you wrong yet?

    Yes, watch it. Horton Foote screenplay. Robert Duvall's first gig. A thinly disguised Truman Capote in Dill Harris. Tom Robinson, the noblest of black men. Peck in his greatest role for which he was awarded an Oscar. "Bust up a chiffarobe". And Mary Badham as maybe my first crush.

    Atonement. Tragic, intense. Very good.

    Also began watching Anna Karenina.

    Yeah Stitchy if you haven't read the book (and you should) you have to at least watch tkam. It's an amazing film. Watched Sinister. Holy shit that was scary.

    That movie was awful. I will never understand what people liked so much about it.

    An Atlanta man, too!*

    I watched "Tell No One" last night (do we find out what the real motive for the crime was? The suspense is killing me.)

    While I enjoyed it when it was finished I said "man I wish that film ended 30 minutes ago." Looked on wikipedia, the European release was 90 minutes, the DVD was 2 hours. Coincidence?

    Also, I think I'm bored with 150 minutes of exposition and an 8-minute explanation/neat little wrap up in crime flicks. I mean I understand that that it happened can be more important than how it happened but its like often I'm now watching movies and just waiting for the moment the accused/runaway will meet the true perpetrator/mastermind and have the long confession.

    *Sorry was thinking about Alfred Uhry who wrote the play.
