In other words, neither of them really wanted to do what they were doing, and predictably, the woman sought to break out of those roles when she thought she could and tragedy ensued. Very sad.

    I say that no one should be forced into a certain role if they don't really feel a strong drive towards that. They'll only be resentful and dispassionate on a daily basis and possibly seek to escape that role later when conditions are not favorable to do so. Luckily, we live in a time where people have a choice now.
    Well now some people are made to feel bad if they want the traditional scene.

    Meh. I'm not particularly excited about RR; its yet another movie about the supposedly soul-crushing distopia that is suburbia, starring characters without any apparent redeeming characteristics, bitching because their lives are not perfect. Next.

    Saw it tonight. Nothing special. This is the same problem I had with the last two piece of shit movies I saw: The Wrestler and Benjamin Buttons. High expectations and then just bullshit. Last good movie I saw was "Let the Right One In".

    Is this movie American Titanic or Titanic Beauty?

    Or maybe Road to Titanic?

    Benjamin Button was far more revolutionary than Revolutionary Road.

    I want to see this. I'll go see it and come back to this thread.

    Benjamin Button was just Forrest Gump redux. I know, I know, it had great special effects. *makes jackoff hand gesture*

    Benjamin Button was more like Titanic Gump.

    The worst Best Picture contender (and winner) of all time, however, was Gladiator.

    Uber, I think we have finally found some common ground. Hallelujah!

    I'm not so sure I want to see RR anymore, since Synarch (who I think was excited about it for the same reasons I am/was) was so disappointed. At the very least, now I think it can wait for Nutflix.
