McCarthy is amazing because he's not that conventional.

I waited for its release in theatres but it never came and IMDB fanboys kinda turned me off of it. However, it's response here seems to be favourable.

I love the book, my favourite book of 2007 (when I read it). Hopefully it stays true to it.

they left out one memorable moment from the novel, but i don't blame them, it probably would have made the rating go to 18+/NR. i also think they extended the role of the wife. i don't remember her having as big of a role in the book. getting charlize might have had an effect on that.

i try to stay away from imdb threads. people are overly critical and usually just end up ruining the movie.

Cormac McCarthy is a terrific author ... his books are among some of my favourites.

Hubby and I really enjoyed The Road; wicked performances by Viggo and Kodi ... so young, and so amazing.

I loved it, I just meant that you get no break in the movie. Its insane. I think its pretty safe to say it is one the most realistic post apoliptic movies ever. And the best thing is that is that the movie really isnt about the end the of the world, but the relation between father and son and how the human acts in extreme situations.

viggo mortensen never dissapoints me either.

Eastern Promises, he kicked an insane amount of ass in that movie.

Saw Inception last night. Have to say it lived up to the hype and I'm also on the bandwagon. 9.5/10 and only because I wasn't a huge fan of Ellen Page in this one.

Some of my favourite movies are Viggo movies ... Eastern Promises is in my top 10 for sure. A History of Violence, too. His performances are amazing.

If you've been gagging for a Spice World sequel, then get ready for another dose of platform trainers, Union Jack dresses, attitude and 90s nostalgia.

EMMA BUNTON was the one who spilled the beans, revealing a new SPICE GIRLS flick is on its way.

The film will follow the same format as Mamma Mia! - using their songs as a soundtrack rather than being an actual biopic.

Last year, the girls signed a deal with Mamma Mia! stage director JUDY CRAYMER to have their songs made into a West End musical.

And now the new film, set to hit screens in 2011, will be produced by the same team.

The film - expected to be called Viva Forever after their musical - will feature old favourites such as Wannabe, 2 Become 1 and Say You'll Be There.

yup
what I learned from NCFOM
murderous psychopaths always keep their word.
a big ass shoot out in a texas town will not wake up a soul.
Killers/psychopaths always drink milk. (Chigurh, Alex De Large, Leon)
Coyotes won't eat Mexicans.
You can make a movie where the three main characters don't even meet.
