The Village

Just watched this movie tonight....I loved it.

Wonderful acting, cinematography, AWESOME sound, a few great little twists. I don't understand why so many people said it sucked.

Unless those were the people that would rather see another Van Damme movie...

I agree. It was better than Signs. That was a crappy movie.

It didn't suck, but the last 1/2 hour of the movie I was laughing too hard to hear anything else that was going on. I was expecting a scary movie and the beginning was great. I totally into it, then once you found the 'twist' I'm like I'm don't think so.

Btw, I don't really like Van Damme movies.

I wan't expecting anything scary, in fact I didn't know anything about it. So I was a little weirded out by "those they don't speak of" until later.

they gave the twist away in the beginning... the year was current on the grave. if it wasn't for that IMO it woulda been much better. Also, what are the odds of the people never seeing a fuckin airplane?

Remember when the forest ranger's boss was giving him the speech about talking to much? The boss made a comment about some government official paying money under the table to keep airplane from flying over that land. Maybe one of the elders had a powerful friend...

lol i guess that is a chance, but not likely

I don't think the movie was awful, but not great either. Hard to believe that one of the people that didn't know the truth, wouldn't decide to go hunt themselves one of them monsters lol

I think the idea behind it is the children have been taught that as the truth from the day they can remember, so it IS reality to them. I find it hard to disagree with things I have felt as definitive from birth.

Regardless, a satelittle would have found them by now, there isn't a piece of land that someone doesn't own and/or try to sell. Besides, the REAL story is of Ivy and her love, so I don't think you're supposed to get hung up on the little technicalities.

I just saw that too. I thought the twist was pretty good. But then i also thought, instead of going through all that trouble, why didn't they just become Amish??? Would've made things so much easier.

I thought that movie was very cool. Interesting idea, I can see why some would want to make a town like that.

I finally got around to watching "Signs" this weekend. I liked that one too; not quite as much as The Village, but it was a cool story. There was no 'twist' like his other movies, more of a coming together of the storylines at the end. Kind of like Snatch without the car crash, LOL.
