    I was wholly susceptible to the setting of the film; the industrial aspect of the era has always fascinated me. The story was stern and progressed in a slow manner I enjoyed. Although initially likable, it derailed and reached its nadir towards the end. I wanted something else.

    Without wanting to be controversial for the sake of it here (because I know this is a much lauded darling among film aficionados), ‘There Will Be Blood’ is mostly an overlong and uneven affair, placing PT Anderson at the forefront of ponderous and indulgent filmmakers.

    Daniel Day-Lewis chews the dusty scenery like a seasoned pro and provides a strong backbone to this bloated and rather empty piece, but there is no one around to provide the heart or the meat.…

    One of the most exciting movies about oil you'll ever see. A film that deals with parenting, faith, greed, and the economy. Daniel Day Lewis gives a breathtaking performance, as is expected from him, as does Paul Dano. The cinematography perfectly captures a brilliant landscape. PTA delivers yet another fantastic script and fantastic film.

    I did not like this movie.

    Here are the good things I have to say about this movie:
    • as promised, there was indeed blood
    • Daniel Day-Lewis's performance is spectacular
    • the cinematography is excellent

    Everything else about this movie is terrible. The score is terrible. The editing is easily the worst I've seen in a well-regarded film. The script is mediocre at best (“I drink your milkshake!”). Important details are not communicated clearly, and the movie is just…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    In trying to rate this film I had an epiphany. In the past I've wondered why the Like button is there when you have the option to rate the movie. Today it all became clear. I've given this film 3 1/2 stars which for me is a very high rating - and yet......I didn't like it. Because that can happen. You can be aware that film is quality but it just isn't your cup of burrito.
    I was bored out…

    Daniel Day Lewis is perfect. PTA is just as perfect. Greenwood's score: also perfect. This film is the closest thing to a perfect film that I've ever seen.

    In many respects, There Will Be Blood was the co-movie of the year in 2007 along with No Country. I can't say for sure why I think the media voted for No Country and not Blood, but I've been over it dozens of times in my head and if I had to pick one, I'd go here. Daniel Day-Lewis's performance is legendary (like most of his are) and completely dominates the frame. It elevates the movie from "watching to see…

    Throughout “There Will Be Blood” we get long shots allowing Daniel Day-Lewis to give one of the best performances in recent cinema history. Yet it isn’t just Lewis who shines here for Anderson has created a modern masterpiece with “There Will Be Blood.”

    The film begins with almost 20 minutes of no talking accept the occasional grunt of minor, the perfect introduction to the world of “There Will be Blood.” For the main character of this film is a man…
