Anyone have any opinions on this movie? I think I will be picking up the DVD in July, just because this movie was possibly the best I have ever seen.

I came here expecting something to do with chaos theory. :(

I haven't saw it, but I was told that it was sub-par. Either way, Ashton Kutcher sucks.

It was lame. They took a mildly interesting plot and made... that. There were many movies made worse than it this year, but there were also a ton better. Think I gave it 5/10.

I agree...I loved that movie. It may have also had to do with the atmosphere of the theater I went to (Movie was LOUD almost made it seem like a true horror movie with how many times people jumped) but I still loved the movie also.

Yeah, but you liked Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Well... yeah. I liked a movie with a 92% Fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com and currently ranked number 44 on IMDB's list of all time greatest movies. Was that supposed to be a dig, or were you just trying to be ironic?

I think he was pointing out that you are an "arty" cinema fan.

I didn't enjoy Butterfly Effect, thought it was pretty lame. And for the record, I didnt'd dig Eternal Sunshine that much either.

we are talking 'AMERICAN BEAUTY'?. i fucking love that film...

Hmmm a worthless post and then another worthless post.

I didn't get to see BE when it was in theatres, but I'll be renting it when it comes out on video as it seems interesting

The movie was lame and featured some of the silliest child acting I've ever seen. That wouldn't be a bad thing if the there was only one flashback and it was 5 minutes long.....but there's about 4 or 5, and they take up a good portion of the flick.

The only good thing the movie had going for it was that it was kinda fun to guess how fucked up things would be after he messed with the past.

** or (4/10)

If you felt that it was the best movie you have ever seen, why wouldn't you pick up the DVD?

Meh. It was a good concept but it just threw too many dark curves too quickly, not to mention Kutch and Smart should stick to slapstick. The ending sufficed for what it was and the movie was good at parts but definitely not anything like Snyper stated. 6.5/10 or (**1/2)

btw, I go on the four star system.

Way to bring back the extinct topic, ROC :P

Anyways, I really enjoyed the film, but I watched the Director's Cut. Which, from what I gather, is an alternate ending. I've been thinking about re-renting it to see what the "real" ending is, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

It was a pretty good movie. One of those 'you gotta think about it.' type movies. Such as is it wrong to want to play god or not? But there's alot of hidden meanings in the movie that no one gets, so only intelligent people really like it others will just be like "DUDE THIS SUCKS I WANT TITTIES!" Yeah......

But it's got Amy Smart in it... :wub::wub::wub:

I thought it was a really good flick. Sure, if an intellectual person goes to see it they'll run it down because the acting wasn't on par with Oscar winning movies and the plot was a bit out there. It was kinda like a poor man's "thinking" plot. However, I thought it was a harmless, fun, interesting, and intriguing film that is worth at least the rent. The only problem I have is that I couldn't take Kutcher seriously. It's not because he is a bad actor, it's because after watching him play Michael Kelso for so many years I found myself catching the wrong vibes out of his serious character in the movie. I found myself laughing at some parts, even though they weren't supposed to be funny, but just because I was picturing the Kelso character instead of the actual intended character. It's not really Ashton's fault, it's almost like Michael Kelso was tailor made for him so it is hard to picture him outside of That 70's Show.

All in all, it was an enjoyable movie, not the best, but FAR FAR from the worst. 6.5-7/10, IMO. It probably could have been better with a different lead actor, nothing against Ashton Kutcher.
