Anyone here see Into the Wild? I saw this on the weekend and thought it was a most excellent movie. I actually thought it was far better than No Country For Old Men.

I'm not the biggest fan of Sean Penn but I have to say he did a fantastic job directing this movie.

I saw Into the Wild a few weeks back and also thought it’s phenomenal. I have the book on queue to read too; many friends of mine have recommended it. Between Into The Wild and No Country…, I’ll go with NoCountry for old man, this movie is just a masterpiece. The only flaw of the movie is Llewelyn’s mother-in-law character, she was so out-of-place, like a SNL skit with Amy Poehler. Haven’t seen Juno and There Will Be Blood yet…looking forward to it.
Has anyone seen Sweeney Todd?? Now that’s a bizarre movie. Btw: the music recording and the video quality is spectacular. The movie starts with a pipe organ passage with a couple of 18hz notes in it, pretty sweet. However the music itself I find it tiresome, sounded great, but dreary. Overall, Sweeney Todd is just difficult to watch. … Oh, and it’s not a kid movie; it makes No Country for Old Men seems like Sesame Street.

I haven’t seen the movie yet. I’m waiting for the HD/DVD price to go down. A friend of a friend is in it though (I don’t know the guy). He gave the kid a ride and felt sorry for him because he thought the kid was totally clueless and in for a big surprise. He ended up giving him a pair of his work boots because the kid didn’t have anything but sneakers with him. Sean Penn was interviewing my friend’s friend prior to shooting the movie and asked him to play his own part. When they were shooting the film, Sean Penn took the guys out on the town. My friend was telling me he was a pretty cool guy. He just hung out with them and you wouldn’t have known he’s an actor by the way he was treating them. Well, other than spending most of the night with his cell phone stuck to his ear.

I saw No Country and thought it was very good but definitely no masterpiece. I thought it was a bit overrated. Into the Wild made me feel something...I thought about it more afterwards.

The guy who gave the boots is how the movie opens. Don't recall that they showed much of the guy though.

I've seen both and enjoyed both films, Imo No Country has one of the best acted creepy characters I've seen in the movies for a long time.

Can't say I'm surprised that Sweeney Todd isn't for kids... it is after all about a serial killer...

I know what you're saying; IntoTheWild was one of those movies that you keep thinking about long after the movie ended.
...that last scene with Hal Holbrook… if that doesn’t get you watery eyes, I don’t know what will \:\)

No Country for old man scored very well on all key components that make good cinematography. Excellent dialogs, screenplay etc… Good art should moved you in some way … not always it is in a positive heartening way.

I watched "Into the Wild" last weekend and thought that it was excellent as well. I did enjoy the book a little bit more, but I thought that Sean Penn did a good job of showing what was going through Chris' mind when he was alone in Alaska.

wow, that must be surreal, acting on a movie something you did in real life.
