    Four hours.
    Yeh I saw it in the cinema when it first came out. I was quite young and I still loved every minute.

    Although the second time around I saw it on TV and wished I had been watching it on DVD so I could take a break.

    The King of Marvin Gardens - Jack Nicholson.

    A TV channel here has been doing some of the old Jack films. Seriously has to be one of the greatest actors ever. This film was carried by him and Dern. Just amazed at Jack. I've always remembered his more recent roles that were just asking him to turn up and collect a paycheck, back when he had to earn it he was really amazing.

    Pathology
    Not a bad movie, I can see why people don't like it though, there's really no "hero" so to speak in this.

    Taken
    Liam Neison still kicks serious ass

    The Happening
    It sucked, I can see where Sh. was going with it, but some of the scenes where just laughable. How can you take people seriously when there running away screaming from WIND!?

    The Assassination of Jesses James by the Coward Robert Ford.

    Interesting that the title is an analogy for the movie: Overlong for no damned reason!

    Seriously this film could have been over an hour shorter without missing anything at all. Sprawling historic biopics have to have something more than a character study at their heart to make them interesting. Well at least in this case.

    So the perspectivist twist of making a legendary figure a secondary character to a historical nobody didn't do it? Or the portrayal of an infamous murderer as a family man because lore and legend create expectations that can't be met by man? Or how there's an innate desire to strive for our own fame or even infamy? There's a lot going on there in the way of themes. I don't love the movie and thought its richest material was in its shortest act, the final one, but its still solid; maybe even very good.

    I agree with you points, but I found those themes uninteresting as there is only so much staring whistfully just to the left of the camera that you can take before the entire film feels like filler.

    All of this could have been much stronger if it was done in 90-100mins instead of ~150mins it racked in at. I think Casey Affleck was spot on, I think Brad Pitt actually acted for the first time in awhile, I think the exploration of the fanboy, fame and notoriaty set against a historical figure without the myths was good. But what would have been wrong in making it feel as though it didn't drag along at a snails pace with entire scenes that were there more for historical accuracy and scenic pleasure than for storytelling and plot movement.

    I suppose what annoyed me the most was that there was a lot of hype surrounding this film, but 20mins in I was thinking "hurry up".
