    ^ i havent seen it yet dont fuck it!!!!
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.

    guess I am the only one who thinks this was an average flick, the twist was obvious, the acting was good though

    I am getting sick of everything being green screen and indoor studio sets, Scorsese took it back with Departed but it looks like he's going george lucas on everybody again with all the studio sets

    Solid 7/10 bc it is Martin

    By the way, I really started to think about DiCaprios last words at the end of the movie.
    Does anybody remember?

    I'm afraid to reveal too much to the ones who haven't watched it yet :-)
    the last words were...


    (don't read this if you haven't seen the movie)































    *****SPOILER ALERT*************






    "Is it better to live as a monster, or die a good man?"








    and yes, the twist was obvious pretty much right from the beginning, i don't think they built it up to be a huge shock...

    the coolest and most obvious part where u knew SOMETHING was up was when they were interviewing that lady and she took a drink from a glass of water with no glass in her hand...

    apparently there's more shit like that when u see the movie multiple times..

    the film was about the acting for leo imo. and some of the pretty nice looking dream scenes..as opposed to the plot.

    co-sign the dream scenes..


    they were without a doubt the coolest and most accurate depiction of dream that i've ever seen on film....especially the first one he had of his wife in the apartment, that shit gave me the chills


    and i agree that Leo's acting was superb but i also felt his partner was terrific and the girl, Michelle Williams, was amazing especially in the ending (which was rough---I saw it with a co-worker whose a big football player dude and he was gettin broken up)

    like most Scorcese flicks it's got a few scenes that just scorch onto your brain permanently...

    Sorry guys but this movie was HORRIBLE - except for the last 30 minutes. Took way too long to get to the point. The dream scenes were excellent(the ashes one was incredible) but it was a snoozer for 2hrs straight. I didnt care about any of the characters until the last 30 minutes. Don't waste your life seeing this in the theater. Definitely a renter. This is nowhere in the league of The Departed. Ya'll are buggin

    Looks pretty bad, but i'll probably check it out just because Scorsese is involved.

    A week or so after seeing this my opinion of the movie has only improved. Once you've seen it, than it just sits in your brain and you dwell the events of the movie when you think back on it.

    An amazing film. Watched it this morning and I was completely taken back by it.

    Well worth watching. 4/5.

    I don't know why the critics are being so hard on this movie. maybe they expected more from Scorsese. whatever it's a great movie

    i semi agree with this.

    i was slightly disappointing at the end. but rethinking everything that happend and how it was done my opinion of it has improved a little.

    not a bad flick, not really great though, i do wish i would have waited till dvd though.
