I just saw it today...I really liked it, but the book was better. When someone has the writing style of McCarthy it has to be hard to translate it to the screen. McCarthy writes like no one I've ever read...his style is almost poetic. The movie followed the plot really well, but it is completely different from anything the Coen Bros. (whom I LOVE) have done in the past. But I wouldn't recommend seeing it without reading the book first. I was trapped in the bathroom after by a woman who didn't understand what the hell was going on and it is impossible to try and explain the story in a short period of time.

I absolutely loved the book.

I thought they did a good job on the movie until that certain plot point that was not well covered. I understood, having read the book, but others I know have said the movie was confusing.

I had it out for 4 days from my library- $2- and never did get around to watching it.

I hate when I do that!

(Yeah, nothing to add, sorry.....) :oops:

Beautiful film. It will be talked about fifty years from now. Anton Chigur is one of the most terrifying villains in cinema history.

Anton Chigur and Kaisar Soce (sp?), are the two best film villains in the last twenty or so years.

I really loved how when Josh Brolin's character was hunting it almost looked like he was on the plains of Africa.
And Javier Bardem's hair was a hot mess!

I completely agree Florida and Ben...Chigur seemed more like a robot than a human. Villains without a spark of humanity are the scariest. And the hair...that was almost as scary as he was! LOL!

I guess this doesn't totally follow this thread, but at the mention of Keyser Soze, I had to go watch some - enjoy...

Anton and Joker from The Dark Knight. Those two are terrifying in every way. Anton because he is so systematic, yet so outside of OUR system. Joker because he is absolutely bent on tearing the entire world down around him and more than willing to die just to destroy the symbols that hold our world together.
