We must not confuse dissent from disloyalty. We will not walk in fear, one of another, we will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason.

LOVED Children of Men, Instantly one of my favorite movies. Not sure it belongs in Drama but then I'm not sure it would fit perfectly in any genre...Sci-Fi probably.

The cinimatography was simply awesome. I believe there was an action sequence shot that was nearly 10 minutes long...that is amazing. ;-D

Definitely Children of Men. Some really good scenes pop out of that movie.

Am I thinking of the wrong movie? Isn't As Good as it Gets essentially a chick-flick? :-?

Whatever it is, CoM is much better.

Yeah. Even though I own a copy of the dvd and it plays regularly on HBO, I've yet to watch Children of Men. I've heard so many good things about it I'm afraid it won't live up to the hype.

It might, it depends on what you're expecting.
