Forum posts for phduffy's Top Ten Movies of 2003!

Posted by Katie on Mar 19, 2004
Did you see 21 grams? Because I can't imagine that would be missing from this list if you had seen it.

I think it's a toss up between 21 Grams and Mystic River for me. Although I thought the ending of Mystic River was lame (it should have ended a couple of scenes earlier) and the last bedroom scene with Laura Linney made me hate her character, and dislike her acting in the part. She was the only one I thought they miscast.

Other than that, I think you captured a good portion of the '03 best.

I didn't see it.
And I don't really have any desire to see it. The subject matter isn't one that I'm all that interested in. Like, I'm sure it's well done and a good movie, but I don't think it's for me. Kind of like In the Bedroom, which I did see. (Which has some similarities to Mystic River actually).

Also, I would like to expand on the I,Robot comment, and I may as well do it here.

If you've read any of the robot stories or novels, you'll realize that they're basically little mysteries. We're presented with the 3 laws of robotics. And then something happens, and you have to figure out why, based on the rules. And no matter how much it may look like it, the robots never break the rules! It's impossible!

Now, what is I,Robot the movie about?

Robots breaking the first rule of robotics and going crazy. And fighting Will Smith. Sheesh.

Hopefully the Foundation movies will be better done.

I, Robot

Okay, I figured out what happened with I, Robot.

They wrote the story. Then, someone thought, "hey, we should get a famous SF name on this". So they bought the rights to I, Robot.

It's not based on it at all, they're just using the name to sell it.

Same thing happened with the Lawnmower Man.

I also wouldn't mind seeing Master and Commander.

Its kinda funny how you don't like Lost In Translation, and I don't realy like Mystic River.
