Mr. Cranky eat my steamy cocknuts, mmkay?
"oh no! It wasn't about aliens! BURN THE DIRECTOR!"
idiot. He's an idiot and the people who replied to that review are idiots too and no I'm not linking it and yes, I know he's sarcastic as all hell but no, that's not the point.
I dug the movie.
For me.. this movie just happened to come along at *exactly* the right moment to give me goosebumps, make me think and make me smile a LOT at a LOT of things.
I dug that it wasn't about aliens.
Just like I dug it when The Sixth Sense wasn't about ghosts and Unbreakable wasn't about super human strength.
It's cliched, it's a little slow in parts, and Joaquin Phoenix bothers the hell out of me...but I still have my reasons.
