    Straw Dogs... There is no reason at all to see the current release. The original was a masterpiece. The current release is... pathetic.

    Are you talking about the "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"? If so, I've seen the original per the advice of the wife and actually enjoyed it. The second and particularly the third installment were not near as good. Now with the American remake, I plan on taking the wife on Monday. There was a lot of violence in the original and it is said that Craig had trouble with the violence in this version so on that note I'm looking forward to it.


    Movie Comments: Was a pretty good movie but I understood the European version better than the American version. Kind of slow at the beginning. Followed the book well but the new version wrapped things up very quickly unlike the older version. Emphasis more on Daniel Craigs character than Rooney Mara's character, which is basically opposite the older version. Violence was about the same between the versions (actually the original was a little more intense than the new version IMO).

Most of Bridges dialogue is unintelligible (intentional or not), I'm not sure, but not likely). Damon forgets he bit his half his tongue off most of the movie. The only "action" seemed to of last maybe 20 minutes, and it wasn't even much of an action sequence. It's just a long movie of a whiny, bratty 14-year old where "lawyer" and "my daddy" are every other word out of her mouth. The ending was just atrocious. Just not really worth spending the $20 to go to the theater when you can spend $5 on renting it and making you own popcorn and drinks. Needless to say, this isn't one book based movie where I go check out the book.
    i know i'm dragging up an old thread, but i just saw this for the first time. the review above does not do it justice. it was the worst movie i've seen since twilight. the original was not exactly my favorite john wayne movie, but it certainly deserved better than this.

    i disagree with pretty much every word of this^. it was nothing like the best of the coens. every actor sounded like they were reciting shakespeare (bridges with circus peanuts in his mouth). with just a few changes (including the ending) it was scene-for-scene the same as the original, but cut out some of the best lines. sometimes it looked like they might be trying to be funny, but the comic timing was thrown off by the actors' forced delivery. the only improvement over the original was that the landscape actually almost looked like oklahoma, but that was ruined by the fact that nobody sounded like they were from arkansas or texas.

    terrible, terrible movie.

    Re: Save yourself....

    Blade Runner 2049

    Two major complaints:
    1) It doesn't tell a coherent or cognizant story. Doesn't really tell a story at all. It has many threads of many stories and doesn't complete any of them.
    2) The sound was overbearing and worse in the very obvious parts added for padding. (There is a LOT of padding.) Painfully overbearing a couple of times.





    The visuals were great, though.

    I like me.

    It's a mockery.
