The sparkly vampire from Twilight pretends to be a criminal low-life in this film.

Watching this gave me anxiety. It was not, dare I say, a "good time."

For real, it's a fantastic film. Probably my favorite of the summer - go see it.

Could the camera have been ANY CLOSER to the actors' faces?! Reminds me of Mike Nelson on MST3K, quipping, "Well, the closeups save on sets..."

I found the movie disappointing.

I wasn't bothered by it. I took more notice of the helicopter-tracking shots than I did of any close-ups.

Monty, cross the room if you've ever been disappointed by a film.

Ah, because I'm retarded.

I see what you did there.

No man, I wouldn't do that. Sorry, that was not my intention.

Like seriously, that scene got me misty-eyed. I usually roll my eyes at those activities (They still had us doing them in college) but in the context of the film, I was happy that Niko wanted to belong. That he saw himself in others.

Christ, somehow I'm offended that you think I'd even go there with you. People assuming the worst in others gets to me.

It's okay, but you can see how I'd infer that, correct?
