    50/50

    Awesome movie, haven't seen a good movie in a long time. I recommend watching it, made me feel horrible for anyone going through cancer, but was pretty funny as well. I give it 5 stars.

    I've thought about that. My wifes brother died from cancer 8 years ago at 42 with 3 kids at home.

    Just watched this the other day. I have survived leukemia twice and am still recovering from a bone marrow transplant last February. I am not much for emotion but this movie had me both laughing out loud in the beginning and tearing up at the end. Really recommend watching.

    Don't. I could hardly contain myself. My dad has cancer and it really hit home.

    Great Movie though!

    Re: 50/50

    This movie did a great job with a very difficult subject. If you have ever been close to someone who has or had cancer, it could stir up feelings. It certainly brought back a lot of memories for me. My dad died of cancer several years ago.

    Just got around to watching this movie and I give it two thumbs up. Funny, depressing.....it hits the right notes at the right times.

    Re: 50/50

    Strange. It's like Cyber still exists, yet not. Like he's trapped in some sort of time/space continuum.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I watched a couple weeks ago, and thought it was really, really well done. Sad and terrible and funny and heartwarming all at the same time, and that is tough to pull off.
