    I don't know much about "The Wrestler". But, I was down to the other two a few weeks ago. I hear that Slumdog is pretty good, just incredibly long. Gran Torino was rather long as well, but very good. I think it's about an hour shorter than Slumdog though. Slumdog would be a movie that I would watch at home, with a few breaks. I really just can't sit down and stay intense in a movie for 3+ hours at once...

    I really liked Gran Torino, though, and will definitely see it again, though probably not in the theater...

    Seen all three... All are decent, but I thought Slumdog Millionaire was the most creative and interesting of them.

    Slumdog must just seem really log. I just read that it's 2 hours long.

    Slumdog flew by for me, I don't know if it was long or short time wise.

    Re: Pick the movie

    If you see Friday the 13th in a group, does everybody have to split up?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Friday the 13th ftw!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Pick the movie

    The Wrestler is very good and Mickey Rourke is sabsolutely outstanding in that role.

    Good advice here. Both are also playing at the Fleur theatre.
