  • Decent flick but IMO not as good as the critics said. Would've been better if it had been condensed a bit. Excellent acting all the way around. Bonus thumbs up though: Amy Adams' tits are in nearly every scene, covered but barely and it really doesn't matter cuz they rock. Bonus thumbs up part II: Jennifer Lawrence is in it. 'Nuff said.

  • I was totally MEH when walking out of that movie. There was barely enough storyline for a 1.5 hour movie, nonetheless 2.25 hours.

  • Have any of you seen Wolf of Wall Street also? I was thinking about seeing one of these two soon and was leaning towards Wolf.

  • I saw Wolf on the 26th. It was good but I don't have the desire to see it again any time soon. Leo was phenomenal and Jonah Hill was great too, but it's 3 hours and the first half got redundant and a bit tiring, imo. The second half was good, but it was definitely character driven and not about a suspenseful plot. It got dark and sucked you in eventually, but just beware that the first half got a bit excessive in showing the excess they lived with. If you like Leo (I do) I'd go see it.

    The original cut for that movie was over 5 hours long.

    Ridiculous.

    I'm curious as to who would go and sit for 5+ hours at a theater.

  • I normally wait on critically acclaimed movies until AMC theaters does their oscar showcase. Up to 10 best picture nominees on 2 consecutive saturdays. Best part is that its in the dead period between the SB and Draft.

  • Who would ever want to go and see a five hour movie huh? Well that will be released in the DVD as they have bonus features. But love the actors and actress as would love to see it through.

  • If Jennifer Lawrence is in it, it's an automatic 9/10 in my book
