One of the worst movies I've ever seen
I mean it was jaw droppingly terrible. I was expecting something along the lines of Gandhi or Chariots of Fire or Driving Miss Daisy or Forrest Gump, something that wasn't nearly as good as whatever it was competing against, but at least sort of well made. I really couldn't believe it. I feel like I actually had to pause it a few times just to take in how terrible it was. How could this possibly have been nominated for *beep* anything? Brokeback Mountain winning the award would have been pure politics, but this was okay? For the record, I don't love Brokeback Mountain or Capote or Good Night Good Luck (haven't seen Munich yet) but literally any of those would have been better. I honestly don't understand how the film's cast isn't crippled with embarrassment anytime it gets brought up.
If you like this movie, honestly, please tell me why. Because everyone I've talked to who says they like it also says they haven't seen since it came out and/or they don't remember anything.
