    We just watched Black Swan... great acting; great direction; interesting film. I thought it would be a lot drier and more slow moving than it was.


    It's a keeper, imo.

    I've always loved Natalie Portmans acting, especially starting with "Where the Heart Is" where is the first movie I saw her in. (If you haven't seen it, its a great movie). But Black Swan totally blew me away. She deserved that award 100 times over for that part, wow.

    Natalie Portman is amazing and so is Mila Kunis, but they should have cast my girl Scarlett Johannson as the lead. :thup:

    It was only alright for me. Yes she did a great job acting it, but the story was lacking for me somehow.

    I watched it, and it was interesting. Natalie Portman and Mila are always great.

    Personally, I thought the story was stupid. I never did fully get it, it irritated me. It seemed to be a portrait of crazy people. The end I found RIDICULOUS. Completely balls to the wall silly.

    i'm with you. the story seemed muddled and directionless. a lot of stuff happened, but truthfully when we got to the end of it i wondered what the point of most of the movie was.

    i'm not saying it was a bad movie - but there was the potential for a much better movie.
