    Not enough CGI, explosions, and vampires for the modern movie going crowd.

    Blame Clooney all you want but there were a lot of big names in that movie.

    The truth is the Coen brothers make shit movies that no one wants to see.

    I liked that better when it was called "The Wind in the Willows".

    There's a list of great ones. I'll agree that they're hit and miss but there's no fucking way that they're all shit. Blood Simple, Fargo, Miller's Crossing, Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, I could keep typing for a spell but I think you get the idea. This latest movie might suck, but at least they have a vision and stick with it.

    Clooney takes chances though, right? He could be making one crappy rom-com after another but he seems to at least try to do some interesting stuff.

    Three Kings was good. Cloon-dog's power is not in film but as a cocksman and now that's he's settled down we'll be seeing more movies like this.

    Hate Coen Bros. movies aside from Raising Arizona. Like a few Clooney flicks here and there, but wouldn't see this one on general principle.

    I just rode the steam locomotive used in that movie last Saturday. Cool way to spend an afternoon.
