Who else has been blessed with seeing this masterpiece?

I really want to discuss this movie, but at the same time I don't want to ruin it for anyone.....

I saw it around a year ago. It is kinda hard to discuss without ruining it. I really liked it but all movies with any time travel just piss me off.

really? I loved the ending. I thought it really pulled everything together, while at the same time slightly confusing most people.

It's probably the best movie I've seen since Fight Club.

I just didn't get why one second he was running from the police and the next it was a month ago and boom.

maybe watch it a second time? I was a little shocked at how few people got the time travel thing.

Did you see the DVD, Chojin?

Are the DVD extras good?

I thought the movie was great, but could see how some people would be disappointed with the ending. I had the same response initially with Fight Club. I loved the movie so much, and then it seemed to "cop out" with the whole schizo thing. But upon further review, and many viewings, I love that movie.
I think that would be the reason that people might not like the ending... kinda takes you out of your comfort zone.

I thought it was shitty. People are just confusing the director's sloppiness and laziness for complexity and intelligence. The whole thing adds up to nothing; very boring.

I agree with Royal. Theres a difference between a deep movie and one that just doesn't make sense. There were 3 reasons that I liked it anyway though:

1.Smurfette
2.Christina Applegate
3.Child porn dungeon.

Some of the best scenes ever.

I haven't seen the DVD yet, and when I do I'm buying it, but I hear it's amazing for it's extras.

I didn't find it complex at all. Nor did I find it sloppy.

Actually the last movie to disappoint me was the Royal Tenenbaums

(only because I have issues with my dad, other than that I thought it was dark and fucking brilliant)

The best part of the DVD is the directors first project, which is a short comedy about serial murderer who picks up this pretty lady. It was actually decently funny.

The rest of the DVD features are pretty standard in my opinion.
