    I dunno, I mean there was a lot of "too stylistic/preachy for it's own good" in Boondock Saints, and most people who claim that they really loved the film tend to be pretty insufferable all-around

    But I don't remember it being total trash the way most people talk about it.

    It has two decent scenes.... and Willem Dafoe in drag.

    The rest is low low (oh so very low) rent pulp fiction ripoff.

    I don't think I remember it too well. It was a sort of twisted moral revenge fantasy, wasn't it?

    I guess you could call it that if you want the movie to sound important in some way. Mostly its "Actionscene, no way, Willem has to solve what happened first.... Ok, now you can watch your action scene. Wait, no dramatic feeling or motion? Oh that's right, we know they survived because you told us that before Willem started solveing the shooting.

    So... where's the tension? THERE IS NONE! Enjoy your b grade action flick


    edit: hopefuly this makes sense. I got bored midway though trying to make my point and........ yeah.

    I hate twists, they've become the yardstick for how idiots judge the value of a movie. The bigger and more rediculous the twist the more they love it.
    "Wow, Bruce Willis was a dinosaur this entire time and no-one realised it, not even him. I totally didn't see that coming!"

    Fuck you, I would so want to watch a Special Edition version of the Sixth Sense where Bruce Willis' character was replaced by a CG talking Tyrannosaur who thinks he's human while everyone else in the movie awkwardly tries to ignore it. That would be an amazing movie.

    Pukio recently did some awesome "alligators in anthropomorphic postures and people clothes" drawings, so I sent him a couple stories I wrote in high school about a character named Alligator Dan.

    I love ideas like that so much.

    I just kind of find it hard to watch movies where I'd prefer every last character in them to get run over by an truck and die, rather than continuing to say things and do things.

    Honestly, its not worth your time. Outside of two decent scenes it bland movie that thinks it is much cooler than it is. And not in a good way.

    I would have too if I hadn't a) seen Pulp Fiction before it and b) been talked up a storm about the wonders of Boondocks

    (and c) if the film was told somewhat chronological order. One or maybe two "Oh wait for them to solve what happened and then you can see what happened" would have been ok. But every single action scene over the course of two movies? No thank you.)

    Kind of my thoughts on it, not a great movie or anything but I don't see a reason to hate it either, and besides, Willem Defoe is in it.

    The people that hype it up are dumb though.

    Boondock Saints?

    Seems like a reaction formation against feelings of angst.

    just watched the Book of Eli.

    man what a load of crap.
    It takes humanity burning itself up in a nuclear apocalypse to finally rid itself of Christianity. And then some asshole brings it back from the dead. THANKS DENZEL!
    You think that whole global annihilation thing was evidence that maybe it didnt really work in the first place?

    I couldn't even enjoy it on a "This is fun" level. The acting and set pieces were horrendous, even Sean Patrick Flannery was well below his best (his best not being all that high). It was trying to do far more than it's budget allowed and it showed in the most horrible way. It was a train wreck from start to middle, the end may have been awesome but I wasn't hanging around to see it.

    Mustang, did you watch Willem in drag?

    That is the best part of the movie.

    Which... isn't saying much i guess.

    He didn't bring the religion back, the book was just shelved in a museum, in a world where nobody could even read except for the intelligent bookworms who knew better.
