I saw Slumdog Millionaire

It got talked up by a lot of people as like one of the greatest movies ever, I dont think I saw a bad review.

It was a decent movie, but nothing too special IMO

Even though Moore didn't like what was done with V, i thought V the movie wasn't bad for a movie being made from a book...if that makes sense.

They did, and as the author - i understand Moore's sentiment towards it. But, as far as being a "movie" (a different medium than a book/graphic novel) - i thought it was "good" for being a movie.

Most artists will hate anything that anyone does to their material as blasphemy. Stephen King hated The Shining. But as a movie, i think it did a good job for what the book was like.

Sorry, I meant Watchmen, not V. I have seen all the "art of" etc books that are coming out next week, the movie does not end like the book.

Fanboys will riot. Maybe.

You can make good movies from books. Stephen King's Shining the tv movie was bloody awful. That one was faithful to the book. Shawshank, Carrie, Misery, Stand By Me, the Green Mile. Good movies from his books.

Alan Moore has removed himself as a credit from Watchmen, and is giving all of his profits from the movie to Dave Gibbons.

Sometimes it is interesting to see how things change for a movie. Besides, the books still exist.

Agreed, and interesting on what more did with his profits.

Of course, but the final chapter of Watchmen is incredibly important to the whole story.

Moore must have given up millions of dollars.

Bottle Rocket is a misnomer if there ever was one. Its called Bottle Rocket but the story flows like a bottle floating in the ocean. Ive tried watching it a few times but it just seems kind of slow moving. Its not Gerry(Matt Damon/Casey Affleck) slow but its still slow.

Just heard that Universal is turning this into a movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=larWIi0I0VA

Could actually wind up being pretty bad ass. The guy who did the Bourne Ultimatum is writing the script and the director from Friday Night Lights is directing

I simply can't believe with all the Jessica Biel fans here that nobody has mentioned Powder Blue yet:

A suggestion for films if you are interested in classic films:
http://www.tcm.com/2009/31Days/index.jsp

Turner does this every year around Oscar time, 31 days of Oscar films.

So, I dedicated all of yesterday towards starting and finishing the Watchmen graphic novel.

It is one of the best books I have ever read.

The movie comes out March 6th, and it looks like it's staying pretty close to the book. Should be incredible.

I'd think that they would show The Maltese Falcon at some point.

If any of you are planning on going to see "Taken", and are expecting a "good" movie rather than an "entertaining" movie(Like I was, due to it's high IMDB score), you should correct that.
