Anyone else seen this movie? I just recently watched it, and it was pretty damn good. It's about racism in modern-day LA, with a very good cast. Brendan Fraiser, Sandra Bullock, Ryan Phillipes, Don Cheadle (I betta recognize).

Anyone seen it?

Hotel Rwanda (Paul Russabagina).


Don Cheadle, motha****a.

You better recognize.

The only thing I don't get in the movie is the time frame. At the beginning of the movie, when they get in a car accident with the Korean woman, and then Don Cheadle (I betta recognize) walks over to the crime scene where Ludacris's friend was killed. They go into retrospect from that point, and show the events which happened the day before. But when Ryan Phillipes molests that woman, it's the night before the day of the accident, so all of this happens in about a day? The Arab's store being broken into, and him going the next morning to shoot the Mexican?

I doubt it's really confusing at all, I probably would understand it a lot better if I hadn't watched it via TiVo where it ships the sound every couple of seconds.

Just saw it last night. Amazing, is all I have to say. The music fit so well with the movie. The scene with the Middle Eastern guy confonting the Mexican guy for the money is one of the most powerful movie scenes I have ever witnessed, it gave me tears.

One of my favorite movies of recent times. I saw it theaters not expecting much, but was blown away...and felt a bit depressed afterwards.

Didn't Cronenberg get all pissy about the names, because people would automatically think about the more recent film, rather than his?

Anyway, both great films, IMO, even if they're about two completely different things.

Wait, my friend told me that the girl bought blanks at the gun store. Did they mention this somewhere? If so, I must have missed it.

Girl:"Gimme the ones in the red box"
Gun Guy:"You know what you're doing??"

I was confused aswell until I remembered what the guy said.

I also literally did this >> when the girl got 'shot'. Good movie.
yo.

Same here. The first movie to make me cry. Ever. One of my favorite movies of all time.

In my top ten favorite movies it's somewhere between 5 and 3. My favorite movie is Michael Douglas's Falling Down.
What's up?

saw it last week, very good movie. it shows the box afterwards and you can see that it says 'blanks', if the guy in the store's comment and the little girl scene weren't enough for ya.

Yeah, it was a good film, though some aspects of it reminded me a lot of Monster's Ball.

Why do films have to be so crystal clear these days? I mean God forbid a film that actually requires you to think about the events leading up to a certain moment and the resulting outcome of that moment, instead of spelling it out like spaghetti letters.

Anybody who has half a brain would have realised the bullets were blank when the girl started moving after she was shot.

Ack, I hate that.
