It's not my fault that the forum isn't working right.

I hope the movie isn't half as heavyhanded as that trailer.

The real Sayid got his ass handed to him by the others!

Checked out the trailer, I think Tarantino is onto something. These movies can only work as grandiose spectacles of violence. Sorry, but there's no "emotion" there in a revenge flick if there was, well it wouldn't be a revenge flick.

Why? Foster is an excellent actress. I've never found her to be overly butch and she's always been very quiet about her private life.

I saw the trailer for this on the 300 DVD & Im actually looking forward to checking this movie out on DVD. Even through Jodie Foster has been in a few flops, shes also been in some really good films & shes cute.
Spoiler:
Its nice too see that Sayid found some work after he got off the island.

I was thinking the same thing. Who kicks someone's ass then keeps their dog? That is a new low. I will probably go see it, I like Jodie Foster.

I think it looks really good. Of course, I love Foster and am probably biased, but I will be buying a ticket that's for sure.

I'm hoping Jordan explores the idea of revenge and the toll, etc. Cuz with this and "Death Sentence" playing back to back in front of "Invasion" most people probably thought they both were cheesy revenge movies.

Granted "Brave One" looks more thoughtful than the pure pulp action of "DS" but I hoping this will be good. It should looks it, even though that "Grindhouse" guy looks out of place as Jodie's b/f.

Well, it may surprise you, but Jodie Foster was not an actual child prostitute. She was also not an FBI investigator that works in behavioral science.

Neither of these facts prevent me from enjoying Taxi Driver or Silence of the Lambs.

Let's please refrain from throwing around movies like Taxi Driver and The Silence of the Lambs in this thread. Thank you.

Because Taxi Driver and The Silence of the Lambs are top notch greatness and this movie has yet to prove itself. The way I interpreted the quote was that it was insinuating a comparison.

The funny thing about this, I have argued for years that I thought she was gay - I've got all my friends thinking I'm nuts.

But than again, I also though Hugh Jackman was gay also - COMEON! Who takes their mom to the Acadamy Awards!! lol

Then I noticed he was married.



I've been known to be wrong before
