I saw A clockwork orange this weekend. I absolutely loved it, and I wanted to know what other people think about it. Discuss.
A penny for my thoughts?

A bargain I say!

I'll give you a dollar

Take them all away...

It's really good. The book's better though. I did my a-level art project on it this year. I ended up projecting quotations from the book onto my school at night.

"Ultimate"-Guitar is the worst website on the internet. Polluted with unintelligent mongoloids.
disturbs me every time i see it. it's a wonderful film.
one of my all time favourites.
I was really stoned when I watched it and found it extremely disturbing and odd but at the same time was very interested and kept wanting to see what would happen next

What is plexi? Do you mean a guitar made out of plexiglass?
I really liked the book. I think I may have actually liked the movie more, I thought it was really well done but I'll have to watch it again.
like all Kubrick's films, i love it

I thought it to be quite horrorshow
Haven't seen it in a while but I've seen it 3 or 4 times and it's brilliant. I would go as far as to say it changed my life. I still remember the first time I saw it, and afterwards I was in a complete stupor. It was completely and utterly different from any movie I had seen up to that point, and I declared it to be my favorite film of all time. Though it no longer holds that spot (it switched to Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now, then Short Cuts, which is my current favorite) it will always hold a special place in my heart. It also really got me interested in seeking out quality films and was the first step towards me becoming the film enthusiast I am today.
Stanley Kubrick is the man. All his films I dig.

i was amazed by how all of the art and paintings and whatnot was at least semi-porn. lol it added a creepy touch to all the violence and stuff that happened. i love the milk bar. the milk dispensers were hilarious. i want some of those. lol

Great movie, and I loved the milk bar. It just adds to the movie's weirdness.

I was also inspired to make a topic about this very movie the very weekend I saw it. However my thread failed as I titled it "A Clocktower Orange." I did not make a new thread so I just let the rats eat the thread dead. Brilliant movie.

honestly i think anyone who liked the movie is very shallow in their taste in movies. there was no point to the story at all. i love bands that sing about a clockwork orange like the lower class brats and **** sparrer so i was extremely dissapointed when i saw the movie. it was an utter disgrace. so i figured i might as well read the book because maybe just the movie sucked. and it was true. if you read the re-release it will tell you that the original clockwork orange when it was first released in the US(the one the movie was made after) had only 20 chapters while the real clockwork orange had 21, which even played a part in the overall moral of the story. the last chapter of the book made all the difference. but still theoretically the movie could have been done with only the first 20 chapters and still been a good movie but they left out the most important detail of the entire story. the fall had cured him. it did not mention or even attempt to portray that in the movie leaving you completely confused with the ending. but as i was saying the 21st chapter completely changes everything around and i have no idea why they would even think about taking it out. anyway the moral of the story is that the movie was horrible however, the book was terrific.
Clockwork got me into Kubrik, one of the greatest directors of all time. Almost every movie he made is now considered a classic.

There is only one solution. We need to bomb outer space. That should show those terrorist bastards who's who
I read the book before seeing the movie, which I think was a good move on my part. Very well done film though, good for laughs and lashings of the old ultraviolent!
It's good but i prefer the book, i think the movie is one of kubrick's weakest films.
TBH the book is much better.

Still quite good.
I couldn't get over the fact that his counselor person had a lazy eye, and when he was bending over and staring at him in the prison, one eye is looking at Alex, the other at the ceiling. That and how he spits on his face and it.. doesn't look like saliva. a girl

How about just send a ship at the speed up light directly to the sun, and the gravity will pull it towards the sun, thus speeding it over the speed of light.
