Has anybody seen this yet?

I've been busy so i haven't had chance to catch it... but i'm supposed to be going on Saturday. Should i see this or should i see The Wrestler instead?

I have heard it is one of the worst movies ever.  Not kidding.

The Wrestler looks boring as hell.  Fake Mickey Rourke tears is not something that draws me to a movie.  But it might be better than The Spirit.

I cant believe he did Snakes on a Plane either, though. Maybe his career is going downhill.

My brother says The Wrestler is a damn impressive movie. But I suppose it depends on if your in the mood for a drama film about an aging wrestler. 

I'm gonna hold out on The Spirit myself after hearing about the trashing it got.

Gran Torino (Clint Eastwoods new flick) is out this friday, I've heard good things about that one.

Yeah.  When I saw the trailer the first time, I was like "... oooo kkkkk..."!  It looked like a clone of The Shadow (which I love), but in a bad way!  I'll probably rent it.

As for Samuel Jackson, I think he's a pretty good actor, but makes some god-awful decisions as far as movies go.  He's like the opposite of Tom Cruise.

I've heard awful things from people, but the same people said they didn't like Sin City, so I couldn't tell you the validity of their opinion.  I haven't seen it myself, but it looks pretty bad.

I watched it a few weeks ago and its really good.

Gran Torino was great. I didnt like the ending that much, but it still was a good movie. I will say that most acting in it seemed forced, except Eastwood himself.
"In Korea we used to pile fucks like you 5ft high and use em for sandbags","what are you jabberin gooks doin on my lawn". Old and senile Dirty Harry basically, epic.

Theres a DVD Screener(aka great quality) floating around. I cant post here where, but if you dont know yourself youre probably too stupid to get it anyway.

Fucking garbage.

Probably the worst feature-film I've seen in years.

I got a good laugh out of it, but not because it was funny.
It was so terrible I actually enjoyed myself. I'm willing to bet that at some point Frank Miller knew he was making a bad movie and just decided to just get stupid with it.
