    I have to say the movie wasn't that good. The acting was awesome, as usual from PSH, but the movie was a little silly, IMO.

    And I love Marisa Tomei. ****ing hell she's good.

    It was also named Michael Clayton so maybe he saw a different flick.

    I actually prefered the alternate ending; the original was far too cliched for my liking.

    I can't remember a more confusing or boring film since Mulholland Drive. It was ridiculously pretentious.

    I remember seeing mulholland drive in the theatre thinking... man with this cast and what a cool era etc... and I was left dumbstruck at how bad it was...

    Another one like that, for me at least, was LA confidential..... bad (in my opinion) maybe it needs another watch but I remember going in thinking this will be an instant classic...

    One movie that I went in thinking nothing much of and was blown away by the complexity and richness of the story was Boogie Nights. That movie completely sold me on how amazing PT Anderson really is. Don't judge it as a movie of the porn industry, treat it as a complete moment in some messed up people's lives.

    Magnolia kicked ass as well. Best Tom Cruise performance to date. (eff born on the fourth of july)

    Boogie nights was much better that I had anticapted, and yeah, Mulholland Drive was a murky bore.

    'The Take' starring John Leguizamo is a pretty good movie about an armored truck that gets car-jacked.

    No, it was the same highly predictable bag of shit. I guess if you want to see Clooney be the cool bagman who nails the bitch at the end, then whoa ... great film.

    "predictable" to me is the most useless criticism anyone could ever use. "unpredictability" certainly isn't much of a compliment.

    And besides, there was still tension and unpredictability at the end, when you thought, even for a second, that he might just take the money and run.

    He was anything but cool. Which was part of the charm.

    meanwhile both he and the bitch were both well developed characters (with excellent acting performances).

    I also loved the elements of action with the corporate hitmen (who were very slick), and the somewat cliche but still very true, and very important, themes of anti-corporatism and just a little hint of magic at the end as well.

    excellent movie, through and through.

    I didn't hate anything......but I didn't really like anything. I dunno, it was kind of lacklustre and anti-climactic all around.

    Yeah it was pretty good. Even with the RZA's anachronistic wu tattoo.
