I'll admit. I had never heard of this film...although, as always your review gave me a good ol' giggle =D

Seen trailers for this for like the last 2 years. That is not a good sign.

Thank god you understand that Avatar's plot is fine. Seriously, if you only have a few movies to compare the plot to after 50+ years of movies, you've got a decent plot.

Dat Brooklyn Accent must Make it difficult to consentrate on card games.

A worrying trend I'm noticing in ETTM: The videos are gradually getting shorter.
It's still an excellently informative series but I worry that the decreased length means Bob is drawing most of it out.

Here here.

Everyone who keeps pointing out that avatars plot has been done before is just railing against a popular movie for the sake of looking "cool" on the internet. Imo.

It was remarkably well presented, visually spectacular, the characters and settings where remarkably fleshed out. Even if it is just dances with wolves again its on of the best dances with wolves movies out there.

heh, Bobs got his angry New York accent again.

Wow, your Brooklyn accent's really strong in this one. Anyway, I haven't heard of this movie before but it looks good. I might have to check it out.

For those of you who enjoy this film check out Spellbound by Hitchcock

Screw the ratings I have money!

This looks good, but thriller really isn't my thing, plus I'm probably too young to see it.

I can probably guess the plot twist right now, as you said, it looks easy, shame many films these days are similar (probably because we have so many) and so therefore it's a lot easier to guess plots.

Still, it looks beautiful from the trailers being shown in the background.

Also, what is with the gangster accent poppin' in every 2 seconds? Or is it just me?

happy birthday dude!

I'm going to see it, sure, but I'm not really looking forward to it, Scorsese, Kingsley, and Leo or not.

Happy birthday movie-bob!

Good review might see this sunday.

Happy Birthday movie Bob. Why the New Yawker accent?. I haven't seen this movie just yet but well Scorsese hasn't failed me yet and I've been looking forward to playing this movie since I saw his name on it.

It's a New England accent, actually. Bostonian, to be precise

Yeah, MovieBob representin' New England. Nice review. I've been dying to see Shutter Island. I actually met Martin Scorsese when he came up to NESCom to talk to the Audio and Video kids. He's a pretty cool guy.

Happy Birthday Bob, by the way

Well I might go see this film now after seeing this review.

And happy birthday Moviebob!

Yay for the props to Thelma Schoonmaker. As an aspiring editor it annoys me when even my fellow classmates don't know any great editors like her and can only name off Walter Murch as a heavy hitter in the film world (to Murch's credit, he does deserve the praise--In the Blink of an Eye probably taught me more about editing than any of my actual classes).

EDIT--Also, Happy Birthday Bob.

Happy Birthday Bob.

I baked you a cake

He made Taxi Driver. I think I'm obligated to see anything else he makes.

Happy Birthday, MovieBob. Nice Boston accent =D. You sound like the scout from TF2!

Ok. I actually saw this before the review this time, and I have to disagree. Maybe i was too high expectations? Yeah probably. But the whole movie comes of as generic and, frankly, boring. I was really looking forward towards the downward spiral of the characters sanctity, but thats all been done before. And better. I came out of the movies with a big resounding "mehhhhhhh"

I have to disagree with Bob this week, as in him saying its freaky and "bow your mind" stuff. It wasn't for me at least. Although it should be noted that I was expecting deep and symbolic shit, so, if you set your expectations lower, you may enjoy it.

Thats my mini-review.

Oh, and take Bobs advice on not even watching the trailer for this! Not even joking, it just puts the twist infront of your face for you to read. You have to be half way retarded to not see it.

lol,i'ts,f**kin scorcese get your ass in the theater,by the way happy b-day.

Boston accent actually. I myself used to have it but Ive worked to get rid of it. When I head home back to that area though it starts to come back. I end up sayin' things thaht sound wicked retahded. Especially if Im up neeah Fenway visitin' my old cuoallage buddies and hahvin a wicked pissah time!

:)

Also I just wanna point this out because well I want too avatars plot sucked I don't care that I have seen it before the plot was not done well and the people were not flushed out and it makes me wonder how people can think that. so fuck u guys

So what? Its good looking. I saw it twice just to see the sexy animation.

sigh, people still cant tell the difference between a Bostain and Newyork accent I see.

It's actually a appropo- because Shutter island (if I'm not mistaken) is supposed to be off the coast of Boston.
