Burn after reading

Ya know, 2 actors that I really can't stand, Brad Pitt & George Clooney.

But, I put that all aside when I watched "BURN AFTER READING" after all, it was a stolen internet copy anyway, so who am I to bitch about who in the hell acted in it?

Well, anyways, I watched the movie, and without giving the story line up. I will say it WAS in fact a good movie and well worth stealing off the internet, and possibly even well worth a trip to the video store or net flix or whatever.

The ending was kinda dumb and kinda had you asking for a better conclusion, the one scene where Pitt gets it was kinda awesome and way unexpected, but in a way, quite fulfilling and satisfying, My only wish was that Clooney took a couple to the head or chest as well so I could sleep better at night. Always a plessure seeing "VERN FROM OZ" in almost any movie playing almost any part besides a Nazi rapist prison inmate idol to wannabe redneck thug badass types everywhere.

This movie had me thinking we should install an optional ratings type system on a scale of 1-5 or 1-10 or something, in which case, I'll give this movie a 9 out of 10 rating.

WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY!!

I think I'll pass. The previews looked dumb and wanna-be funny. Besides you didn't make it sound interesting. What was so good about it, besides you getting the satisfaction of seeing Brad Pitt's character get his ass kicked?

Brad Pitt was hilarious in this movie, and McDermot and Clooney acted their roles well.

But the plot was ... well, it could have been done a lot better. The basic premise was interesting (how they are all intermingling without knowing it) but beyond that left me sitting there going "huh?" through most of the movie.

I paid $3.50 at the cheapy theater to see it and was very glad I didn't pay full price.

It's a Coen Brothers movie! Can't go wrong there!

No Country For Old Men, The Big Lebowski, Raising Arizona, O Brother! Where Art Thou?, Fargo... and many more! Some of the greatest films EVER made and always worth buying, because their replay value is immense!

I definitely won't be seeing it then. I saw No Country For Old Men - can't say that I liked it, especially the ending - it blew! Fell asleep watching Fargo, it was so boring and depressing looking.

I loved No Country For Old Men so much that I replaced the Godfather at the top of my list of all time greats.

I loved Raising Arizona and O Brother, Where Art Thou (in fact, Clooney in Burn After Reading reminded me a lot of his character in O Brother) but I just did not dig this movie at all.

I need to see this.

I haven't seen No Country For Old Men yet, either. I'm a bad girl.

I wish I lived closer to you people. The only thing my friends ever want to watch is chick flicks.

I didn't like No Country for Old Men. I thought the plot was OK, but found the lack of music annoying and often boring.

I haven't seen burn after reading, but like Chi, I was turned off by the previews.

That was the weirdest movie I think I've ever seen in my life. A total waste of time. The only good thing was we have a movie theater were you can buy pizza and beer and watch the flick. That was cool. I have to go there again sometime.

I liked Old Country for Old Men....mostly because I hate happy ending Hollywood and I have a really black sense of humor. Believe it or not...I found it a little humorous...Javier Bardem has the words worst haircut, spectacular manners, and a perverse sense of humor. The fact he uses a cattle gun and makes you flip a coin to live or die...kinda made me snicker. Ehh...Different strokes for different folks I guess. That being said...I am excited about the new Friday The 13th movie coming out the second week in February...I love horror movies...even bad ones.

The book was better BTW...as is usually the case.

I still haven't seen it, but if you liked it then I probably would, too.

I saw this one. The acting in it was great. Clooney was awesome in his role but as far as the movie as a whole, meh.

It was OK. Didn't hate it, didn't love it.

I didn't mean i didn't like it. I meant, i was a little bored by the lack of music. Like I said... the plot was OK.
