This Halloween my friends and I were discussing going as the cast of Pulp Fiction. And I chose none other than---Jules. And yes, I'm white. This is going to be a blast! ;-D

Once my friend explained the ending to me I thought it was a cool way to end it, but I wished they had made it a little more clear. :-?


Hey dude, what about the ending did you like?

Unless I majorly missed the idea I thought the ending was as corny as you could possibly get.

I thought WotW was lame and unoriginal. I understand that it was based on the orginal but I would've liked to see a bit more happen. The acting was good and sure the special effects were excellent but what else was there?

I also just saw WOTW yesterday and I liked it. Not the best movie ever but definately worth watching IMO.

my wife and I watched In Good Company last night...Wasn't that funny, was very slow, and not enough Scarlett.

Very disappointing 5/10...

I can see your opinion on lame, but unoriginal? That movie was like no other Sci-Fi I have ever seen. It was even different than the old movie. The movie was based off a book that was written in like the late 1800's, and that book has progressed throughout the years. I think the whole concept of Aliens planned this for years and years hasn't been done in many other movies. Most of the aliens just come and attack. I guess if you don't like the plot than that's all you'll see the movie for, great acting and good special effects. I will agree with you though the movie ened fast and was a little corny with the family dealy. But otherwise I thought it was pretty clever.

I agree the story was revolutionary for its time, there is no doubting that at all.

I dunno, i had really high expectations for this movie so I guess I was always gonna be a bit disappointed. I suppose it's hard for any alien take over movie to bring any new ideas to the table. I just woulda liked a bit more out of the movie, than simply one family running away from the aliens the whole time.

I mean, why did the aliens come here? If they came here a million years ago, why didn't they just colonize the planet then? Why wait till civilized beings inhabit the earth to then take over?

As far as a first person movie about fleeing aliens, it's good. I just wanted a bit more.

They waited so they could study us and make it so it would be impossible for us to win, but they made a mistake and forgot about other living things. They came because they were jealous of our lifestyle and such. That was all explained in the very beggining of the movie. I do agree with yuou though that if maybe would have been better if they didn't surround the movie around one family.

Can you believe that Benicio Del Toro was tapping that just as she turned 21 and he was like 45? 8-o
