Just watched this last night. Another Daniel Day Lewis Epic -- must see IMO. I am also a little biased on the oil industry but it is a great film.

I enjoyed it as well.

Definitely deserved best actor for his performance!

One of the must see movies in 2007.

I thought it was one of the most depressingly boring movies I have watched in a long time.

To each his own but most would disagree with you. Rarely have I seen a film get 92% on RottenTomatoes.com.

At 1st, I didn't know what to think of it. I thought Lewis was incredible, but Paul Thomas Anderson has a history of pissing me off. After about a week, the movie wouldn't leave my head. I had never had that before. I decided that what originally bothered me, Plainview's decent into madness, was brilliantly handled. I didn't quite agree with it until I thought about Eli more. I don't know how I missed it while watching, but I got the wrong idea about his character; I was taking him at face value, as a holy man. That was wrong of me.

Once I got through that and cleared up one thing I missed at the beginning, I realized that this movie is nearly perfect. Kudos to Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead on the score as well. The subtle mood you created blew me away, and I’m not just saying that as a fan. There is one particular scene where Lewis is running away from the well and the music is building in intensity until it completely correlates with the action on screen. You deserved an Oscar nomination for that, Jonny. You got robbed.

Well, let me think about that. I liked I am legend, apart from the whole I'm Will Smith look at me thing, oh and the fact it wasn't even about me. One movie I really liked recently is We Own the Night. That is spot on the guy out of gladiator is a brilliant actor, probably say that's the best movie I've seen in the past year. No country for old men was pretty good, as is the other similar one that Tommy Lee Jones is in called something like 'the third burial of...' Other movies I rate? Pulp Fiction, really funny.

I've never seen The Godfather, but -- and I'm a fan of The Sopranos -- I just don't think it's the kind of movie I could get into anyway.

I kinda agree. The acting was superb, especially DD Lewis, but I didnt find the film all that exciting to watch. To be honest, I tend not to like movies that all the critics like, but I still cant help going to see them every now and then.
