    Shutter Island

    Anyone else go see this movie? Thoughts?



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Shutter Island

    I enjoyed it. It is an "old school" type movie...kind of a Hitchcock sort of movie. I won't make any comments and ruin it for you.

    My girlfriend want to go see it, but it's not going to be airing anytime soon around here. Looks like it might be a good movie.

    Went and saw it this afternoon, found it a little predictable in certain parts but overall all it was still a pretty good movie.

    Re: Shutter Island

    Is it pretty scary or is it more thriller?


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Shutter Island

    It isn't scary, just a bit of a mind-****. Of course, I didn't read the book, so I was going in expecting a much different movie. I enjoyed it, and it lends to interesting discussion afterward.


    Winning cures all.

    I wouldnt say it was scary at all. Definitely a psychological thriller. With about 20 minutes left, I really didnt know who I was supposed to trust in the movie or who I wanted to trust. I liked that about it.

    Re: Shutter Island

    For those of you who have read the book, does the movie have the same ending?

    Re: Shutter Island

    I thought it was terrible. The version directed by Johnny Orr in the 1980s was so much better. I was there, and I'm telling you, what Orr did with that movie was incredible - it was in sorry shape when he took over, but when he was finished, wow. Best movie ever. Today's version is pathetic.
