    Best movie I've seen this year, perhaps a few years.

    I don't want to give anything away is you haven't seen it.

    It's inspired by a true story.

    Excellent, I give it my highest recommendation.

    Story synopsis.

    'Mother Nature is a relentless bitch who does not really care how much you love her.'

    I have seen it many times, the book is even better. The kid should have planned better.

    Damn!! When I first got Dish Network and a DVR, that movie was on PPV and I had taped it to watch at a later date not realizing that you only have 24 hours before you need to pay for it again. A week went by and of course I lost it. BUT, it has never been on Dish Network again and I never could figure that out. They always bring their movies back, but not that one. Guess I'm gonna have to get off my couch for a change and go to a video store.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    The soundtrack to this film is phenomenal. Eddie Vedder wrote the music after seeing the movie, so the music is inspired by the scenes in the film. This is one movie where music really helps to create the right atmosphere.

    This is also one movie where it's okay for Kristen Stewart to have no personality, because that's the way the role was intended.

    I really feel like Sean Penn was ignored an Oscar nomination for this movie, and Hal Holbrook was robbed of an Oscar win. Javier Bardem was far from a supporting role in No Country for Old Men, and should never have been in the category.

    It is on HBO all the time! I watch it almost everytime it is on.
    The movie has a very good message to it.

    It followed the book very closely. Great movie.

    I agree about Bardem's Oscar. The role didn't require a lot of acting--just primal meanness. And we've got meaner men right on this board!

    The book was very disturbing so I haven't decided if I want to see the movie or not. Isn't this by the same writer as The Perfect Storm? I loved that book but the movie was so-so.
