Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
There Will Be Blood
- this film was praised by many so I decided to check it out. First thing that interested me was the fact that Daniel Day Lewis would star in it. I loved his performance in Gangs of New York, so i was expecting good things. I also remembered the phrase "There will be Blood" was a tagline for one of the Saw films. So I was expecting a horror film but its not horror. The beginning started off a little show, but it is evident that Daniel Day Lewis does a great job as his role as Daniel Plainview. The guy who played the Preacher was awesome as well, and seeing the two interact is fun to watch. Ending is brilliant, along with everything else. This film is truly different than any I have seen before, its a little long on running time, but its all fine. First good film I have seen in 2008 thats for sure. Bottom line, watch this film its Oscar worthy.
8/10, these days it seems like I hand out too many 8's. Hmmm, maybe its just that there are some good films these days.
