Has anyone seen this movie yet?

My wife and I went to the 11:10 showing.

I want my 2+ hours back.

Then I look it up on line and see how wonderful everyone thinks it is.

Is it me, or did this movie suck? I am open to the possibility of it being me.

In my best New England accent, What the fauk?

It is an Amazon original film, it would probably be safe to say it never makes it over to Netflix

It was an excellent film. The pace is slow. Some people can't slow down and pace with the film. One of the best of 2016.

Been looking forward to seeing it as I enjoy Casey Affleck...can't stand his brother though.

I don't go to the theater so I've been waiting for it to come on AppleTV. I think it's due out on the 17th.

That's probably Feb. 16 or 17. The 16th would be 90 days after theatrical release.

Wife saw the commercials and saw too many men crying (only takes one) and said "we won't be going to see that. "

My wife and I saw it tonight. Rented it on Amazon for $5, which was $10 too much.
I could not really tell you what the movie was about or if there was a message.
The rave reviews on the acting proves to me that movie reviewers are forced to take psychotropic drugs in large quantities.
The ending was a blessing because there was to be no more and yet I was mystified that there was no conclusion.

I watched this last night with my wife and really liked it. The writing and acting were great, the message was just right (that sometimes bad things happen to good people and it takes time and caring to heal), and for once, guns were depicted as something other than evil tools.

Spoiler Alert!


The scene where Afleck's character and his son look at the deceased brother/father's gun collection was right on. You could tell that the few guns he had were valuable and although the two had argued, they both recognized that the firearms weren't something that were inherently evil, but offered a solution to their immediate quandary. How many of us look at our collections not just because we like to shoot, but as an monetary asset which could (in a difficult financial situation), be a lifeline?

I liked that aspect and the fact that these two good (but troubled) people could find common ground to help each other heal.

I've lived in N.E. just about my entire life, and I've never heard anyone pronounce fuck, as "fauk". That's just bad acting.

I'll check it out when it comes to Amazon Prime in May. We actually thought about renting it but watched the trailer, and it did look boring. We generally like Casey Affleck and don't have problems with slow dramas as long as the story is good.

I watched this over the weekend after having it recommended by a movie buff. I just don't get what the fuss is about. At the end I just thought is that it? I just don't get it.

I saw it.

I really liked it.
Affleck turns it yet another great performance.

I have a thing for Michelle Williams. Not enough Michelle Williams in this film.

I don't mind slow-paced films. In fact I tend to prefer them over mindless action films.

The one thing that bothered me about the movie is that it's yet another overly-romanticised rendering of New England as a cold and harsh clime, which is reflected in the characters. I've spent enough time in NE to know that there are some truly good people there. Enough with the stereotyping already.

I have mixed feelings about it.

I think the story itself is a good one, but the movie was just painful to sit through. It dragged on and on and on and on far too long, and I quickly grew very tired of the overdone Boston accents, mannerisms, and attitudes.

Had it been an hour long I probably would have walked away liking it. As it is, I hated it and I walked away angry. It's odd that a movie would put me in that state of mind, but it ended up being a miserable experience for me. Everyone in the film was angry which made me angry having to watch them being miserable.

If I had to take away one good thing from it, Casey Affleck is one hell of an actor who always turns in a great performance...despite being in a lousy movie.
