    Black Swan - don't go

    Totally overrated. If you're wife or gf drags you to this expect residuals. I mean there were a couple of good scenes (wink wink). But c'mon. People going coo coo is a tired plotline.
    That is all, i needed to vent. thanks.

    i thought it was a really good interesting movie. I'm wouldn't have paid to see it in the theater, but it was pretty entertaining and different.

    Mila wipes her mouth after she gets done. KILLED ME.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Black Swan - don't go

    I couldn't disagree more with the OP.

    If you know what you are going to see ... a movie by the same director as PI and Requiem For A Dream ... than you understand that you aren't going to see Star Wars.

    That was an art film ... it was an amazing work IMO. Some don't like to think while watching a film, and I get that ... and I'm not trying to sound like a snob here... but do a little homework and go see Little Fockers if you don't want to sit through an art film.

    Darren Aronofsky is awesome IMO.

    If I needed another reason not to go see the movie, you just provided it for me...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Re: Black Swan - don't go

    Sorry, I know art is subjective, and maybe this didn't appeal to you, but Black Swan is a pretty great film. It's a movie about people who give their entire lives to their art, and how damaging that can be. A lot has been made of the lesbian scene between Mila Kunis & Natalie Portman, and that WAS pretty hot, but it's so much more interesting than that. Don't go in expecting "Ha, BEWBS. Sweet." You're going to be disappointed.

    Re: Black Swan - don't go

    i have a question about one of the scenes. When she is in the bathroom stall, I am assuming she was vomiting, but it she looked like she was standing up while urinating.

    It threw me for a little while, but I was wondering if anyone else thought the same thing.

    p.s. I thought it was very good

    That was your takeaway of the movie?

    I assumed Portman was vomiting, but I really need to see it again. Saw it a few weeks ago, and there are a lot of scenes that I'm still questioning.

    Re: Black Swan - don't go

    Wow, I didn't know "the academy" also followed CF in their spare time. Let me elaborate... You spend the whole movie laying things out, subtle hints, carefully unraveling clues, ect. But in the end... It doesn't really matter because she was going ******* crazy. What's real, what's imagined, who cares. Just like Shutter Island.

    I thought it was pretty damn good, I didn't know what to expect really before I saw it but parts of it blew me away.
