    Although I could see how some people might find this mundane and boring (especially for a majority of the second act), I found the story interesting and engaging. With a little bit of unpredictability, great acting, and a wonderfully written story, it is clear why this is regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.

    This was a good double feature with Black Swan. It was absolutely heartbreaking to watch as each of the characters has everything crumble around them. This film is more horrifying than most horror movies because it shows how evil and inhuman people can be. I could definitely see myself giving a really long review for this if I rewatch it, but I doubt I will rewatch in anytime soon.

    This film is so beautifully tragic. Aronofsky constantly transitions the film from a modern ballet dancer with an overprotective mother to scenes in a dreamlike state that incorporates in a lot of movies. Portman and Kunis gave strong performances. I liked it, but I appreciate it more as one of the best films I've seen from the 21st century than I enjoy it.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Probably the most interesting idea in this film is how the metal part of the human body can control the physical part. Of course, the brain can convince the body to do things that seem unnatural or illogical (just look at placebo effects), but this is quite extreme. There are stories of people lifting cars to save themself or loved ones, but that's rare and they can't sustain it. So I just think this film approached the capabilities of the…

    My family went to the theaters and watched it for my birthday. It was good, definitely different that I thought it would be.

    Woah, that was insane. The last 30 minutes are probably more stressful than anything I've ever experienced. The performances were amazing and made you feel like it was real. Along with the outstanding cinematography, it really felt like you were there with the characters. The snappy writing is perfect. This was one of my favorite endings to a film. Overall, this was a masterpiece.

    Really good, as expected. Amazing characters and writing from Tarantino and a wonderful score from Morricone. I also loved the non linear story technique, and, although I didn't like it at first, the narrator telling the story grew on me. Overall, it was amazing.

    This is on the edge of 3.5 and 4. I enjoyed it but it felt like something was missing. Maybe I just had too high of expectations.
