Revolutionary Road

Is this any good?
I kinda tempted to watch it. I don't expect it to be as awesome as Titanic though. Well, the Dicaprio and Winslet already said they don't expect nor plan it to be as crazy as Titanic was. This is just a simple movie which from what I heard, will demonstrate really good acting. I acutally don't even know what's it about...

So is it worth my money?

i thought it was a really good movie because 1. i felt the emotions that the characters went through were very realistic and relatable and 2. TITANIC 2 babyy!

it's very tragic and it made me think about marriage/life/relationships/love/selfishness. it is worth watching and the acting from the entire cast was great.

if you want to know what it's about,

I thought it was one of the best acting movies I've seen so far. The movie is very realistic and it'll likely make you look at your own life and realize how so many people live these kind of lives yet don't even stop to think about it. Kate Winslet has played an extraordinary complex role, no wonder she won best actress.

ok, so i saw this on opening day. It was a decent film. What i did not like was how long the tension between there two were. I really would have like the start of the two be a tad more interesting. Leo and Kate could have had a bit more dating setup on how they fell in love with each other. then maybe setup how Kate was an actress just to setup the tone a bit. Once i saw the both of them together as a couple, i was like "oh, this is going ot be a long ass movie". THe movie was all about the two acting it out and be all that they can be.

Leo is really good in his acting HOWEVER many many people can't see past him being stuck in that type of roles. Leo did Body of Lies and also Blood Diamond which I thought he was great, but this movie, the aviaitor made him the way that he is. He needs to jump out from the box. No one really appreciates him with the roles that he's doing. The beginning scene when they were fighting in the car i felt was fake. The part where he was so mad throwing chairs bit was intense, with his anger on his face and crying... was.... not believeble for me.

The ending with Kate was meh... the ending with cathy Bates was also... meh.

It had a decent story line, acting by both of them were great (kate won golden globes) but i wouldn't wait in line or rent this unless you're really into acting, which i was.
