Seven Pounds

Post by ZJH » Sun Dec 21, 2008 12:57 am

So I just got back from the theater after seeing it with my sister and a few friends, and I have to say, it's probably the most powerful film I've seen all year. Unfortunately, most critics don't share that sentiment. For those of you who have seen it, what are your thoughts?

Yahoo users are giving it an A-
It's just that you always get those crazy Critics that give it some ridiculous score that is completely undeserving. Take the New York Posts review, an F. I mean, really, an F?
Take him out and the movie is probably closer to a B+

Probably won't see it. The concept is just so damn cheesy and cliched.

This would be a good movie to go to, and make out with your date the whole time. That's what movies like this are made for. :D Actually, I've heard it was pretty good, but it doesn't seem like my cup of tea. I'll stay home and watch Shawshank Redemption on Blu-ray instead.
Go read "Ishmael" a novel by Daniel Quinn. It will literally change your life.
