This thread does no good. It servers no point and should be locked.

Never saw it before.
Don't really have plans to see it anytime soon.

What's the big deal about this movie. I can think of a million movies that are worse than this. Why the ban?? I saw it when it first came to video years ago and as far as I remember I enjoyed it.

I won't be buying it, though I do think it's a great movie. It's just not something I could watch on a regular basis.

You know, this thread could actually become interesting if you would take the time to explain your thoughts. I personally would love to hear actual thoughtful details about why you think this film is 'crap'.

But, as it now stands, this is about as interesting as the newbies who come here and post "Matrix Rulz" or "Luca$ sux!"


In my opinion, Schindler's List is a very good (but not "great" or "masterpiece") film about an important subject. But 'crap'? I'd need someone to back that up...

I'm not buying it. Not because it's crap (it isn't) but because I don't find the film very rewatchable, and it sounds like the supplements are pretty lacking. Then again even if the supplements were excellent I probably wouldn't care because the story of making this film hardly interests me.

If it were $9.99 or less I'd buy it. Maybe Blocbuster previously viewed

I wouldn't call it crap either, but it's definitely overrated, IMO--I won't be buying it either.

Same here. I saw it once in the theater and was moved to the point of almost having to leave. Once the movie was over I said that was great but I will never watch that movie again.

Won't buy it. Didn't like it much the first time, although I'll probably rent it at some point.

It's depressing as hell, but I love it. I'll be picking it up without question.
