Kevin Spacey spends half the movie naked. And has hot alien sex with Jeff Bridges.

Seriously, what is with you and nudity?

With all due respect. Are you against nudity and swearing? If so, why not simple buy/rent G or PG movies.

I think nudity or swearing in the right genre is essential. Scarface, Goodfellas wouldn't be the same without swearing. Nor would Raging Bull. Nudity. Well, I'm an American male who loves the female body. If it bothers some guys, I guess that's what makes horse races. In fact, we could take a lesson from Europe with open nudity. A lot less sexual crimes. The body is nothing to be ashamed about.

I could be wrong, but I think he's FOR the nudity (so am I )... but since he never actually replies in any of these threads, but just posts the one cut and pasted messege over and over again for different titles, I don't think we'll ever find out for sure.

Back to the dvd......

The movie, I did not care for. Corny, and I am tired of seeing Spacey the know it all jackass. Comon, it's old.

No nudity. Some swearing.

The picture and sound are top notch of course.

And the extras are real nice. But without a good movie, they are really moot.

Rental.

Ahem, going back on topic, i think K-Pax was a pretty decent movie. It's one that i'd rent, but not buy. It is pretty much left up to the viewers discretion as to whether or not Prot (spacey) was an alien or not. The movie basically centers around Jeff Bridges trying to figure out who Prot really is. In my opinion, that isn't enough to carry the movie, but i still sort of enjoyed it.

Spoiler:
the part when prot went to the planetarium and did the thing with the planets was pretty cool, i can't believe that he is an average j6p because of his level of intelligence. Going through a traumatic event like his family getting raped then killed does not make one a genius.


Overall, i'd say rent first then if you like, buy.

I enjoyed the movie. Great rental.

The question is, "Is he from KPAX?". My vote is yes.

I also enjoyed this movie. Saw it in the theatre and bought it, just haven't watched the dvd yet.

I guess it's one way to boost the reply count. It seems that he has asked for a review for almost every movie known to man.

Good one time watch. Very little reason to revisit this one once you're done....

Yeah that's probably why he's a DVD Talk Mentor.
