As for Rourke, I think he gave probably the 2nd best performance of this decade (behind DDL in Gangs of New York).
    I agree with this. If anything is getting overrated I think it's Button. Visually it's amazing, however overall it's just "very good," not "great." There are at least 4-5 movies I enjoyed a good deal more.

        I also agree. Button is top 10 this year for me but I would not call it great. It was kind of a letdown. I still really enjoyed it but it is not top 5 for me.

          Button was technically flawless. Fincher's progression as a filmmaker, maybe not in his material but his actual filmmaking, is astounding. Button may have moved to slow for many, but the film is one of the best overall technical films I have ever seen. Also, Brad Pitt's performance, while not as astounding as say, Rourke's, is one of the best of his career. Fincher's other movies may have been better overall, but I wouldnt sare say Se7en or even Fight Club is a better film technically then CCOBB.

          As for Rourke, I could name 10 performances off the top of my head from the past 10 years that were just as good, if not better. But maybe thats just my opinion.

          I dont even think you could call it a fight...Gonzo would stand no chance.

            Oh I loved it too. The rapport between Sheen and Langella was amazing to me. I watched the original interviews on youtube and I thought they were pretty accurate. Plus with Sam Rockwell, Oliver Platt, and Kevin ******* Bacon, you really can't go wrong. :D

            • Btw I loved TCCOBB personally, but I'm also a huge fan of Forrest Gump, and I could see some simularities in how it was told and written.

              It's a matter of opinion though.

                  Probably my favorite Kubrik right there, even though it's not as grotesque now as it was back then, still fun to read reviews from that era that couldn't get past the violence and sadism of Alexander De Large

                  • I first saw CWO a few years back and I still thought it was ****** up. I'm a bigger Full Metal Jacket fan though.

                      FMJ is great for the first half, the second half is less extraordinary, Clockwork to me a is a better movie from start to finish and I love what Kubrik was going for.

                          • Brodeur is going to stab me for thinking this, but I have the Reader as my 3rd favorite movie of 2008 behind Button and Wrestler.

                              • The Dark Knight could have been so much better if they just ended it at the scene where Batman finally catches the Joker, and he's hanging from the top of the building. It leave Two-Face alive and on the loose, assuming they take out that stupid phone call to Gordon, and gets rid of that entire end scene, which was pretty bad.
