Looks interesting to me as well. But then I'm a sucker for Ellen Page.

At the beginning with the music, I was worried it was gonna go all Juno on us, but it actually looks pretty interesting.

Looks like one of those "Everything goes to Hell fast" movies. Looks good. I've liked Page since Hard Candy. She keeps looking younger and younger.. crazy.

I'm waiting for yet another "Somebody please make this girl stop acting!" review from one of the DVDTalk critics heh.

Ronnie, the real question is how this movie stacks up against The Thing (1982).

Ellen Page annoys the hell out of me. I'll skip this.

It's looks very interesting. If interesting is a new word for completely boring and makes no sense.

Yes, yes, very clever. You misspelled 'Schrute' in your sig.

The trailer gave off a dark little vibe. I hope the movie lives up to it. And I've liked Ellen Page in everything I've seen her in so far. She seems pretty cool off-camera, too.

How many more years can Page play the 15-16 year old role? She's 21 now, playing 15. 18 when she was 15 in Hard Candy. 20 as 16 in Juno. I know she'll always look young, but it's getting silly.

As for this movie...it looks way too bizarre for me. Smart People looks much better.

Movie was made a couple of years ago so Ellen Page would have been 19 at the time.

As long as she still has the body of a 12 year old boy.

Hard Candy she claimed to be a young-in but its never officially said.

You have to remember, Allison Lohman played a 14 year old in Matchstick Men (
Spoiler:
who wasn't really 14, but it was believable
) when she was 24. I think she played a teenager in Flicka as well, when she was 27. Face it, 20 somethings make better teenagers than teens!@#!!@#!

I just loved Ellen Page in Juno and am really looking forward to her role in Smart People, but this whole "emo-dark" movie it just not appealing. I agree with DVD Josh --she doesn't look like a convincing 15 year old anymore. She def. has a young face, but atleast 17 or 18. This kinda just looked too depressing for me.

nah, doesen't look interesting to me. Now if she ever is in a slasher movie or a movie about substance abuse, I'll watch it. I like movies like that instead. Diden't care for Juno, Hard Candy was so-so.

Smart People looks good. And remember, they do that to a lot of young actresses. Allison Lohman was in White Oleander playing a 12-18 year old charecter (well the ages aren't exactly right but you get the idea). Then she played a 14 yr old in Matchstick Men, and then a 15/16 yr old in Flicka - all when she was in her early to mid-20s. but she's even admited herself that she can't pull it off much longer.
I can't think of other actress examples at the moment.

Now if Ellen Paige really, really wants to give ppl a shock she should do a 180 in her career and do something like Zombie Strippers. lol, I know she probably coulden't pull that off now, but you get the idea.

The inevitable question: Does she get naked?

Agreed. This is probably enough to get me to at least see this.

I like Ellen Page all fine and well... Hard Candy was pretty damn good, Juno was an ok film (and the problems weren't Page, they were screenplay issues IMHO...).

I would certainly like her to do something that breaks the mold... vengeful teenager hanging out in chatrooms, pregnant teenager hanging out in chatrooms, superhuman teenager, walking though walls, updating her blog... hanging out in chatrooms.

I think she's actually super cute when she dresses and appears as a grown up... but every time I see her in full on jail bait glory it makes me deal with many complicated thoughts.
