Saw it at the cinema - excellent movie
got it last week from Movietyme. Not quite what I was expecting. Quite a gentle character piece.
yeah, my girlfriend thinks it should be a great movie...haven't saw it yet
Yeah was a good film somthing different to most other bill murry movies.
Had a nice story line and was shot very nicely i thought.
I saw it on friday, i agree it was very different form Bill Murrays previous work. I enjoyed it and will be buying it on DVD . I don't think the young lady I saw it with appriciated it as mich though. Quite a 'slow' film and excellently filmed. I hope its a good transfer to DVD.
Had this film on DVD for nearly 2 weeks now, and it really is superb viewing. I absolutely love the movie, and while the second viewing wasn't as laugh out loud funny, i felt even more connected to the characters involved!!
Last year we got City of God in January and this year we have Lost in Translation, talk about starting at the top
i totally did not like this movie...dude. well the first 40 mins or so. then i had to go to work. watched the rest of it when i came home and wow...great movie. Heres hoping Bill gets the Oscar he deserves.
I liked it, but didn't love it. I wasn't completely convinced by the whole film, the pace I found was a bit too slow - I know its purposeful - but I just wanted more from the film. I kind of left it feeling a little underwhelmed, maybe because I'd heard so much about it. Think I may watch it again when I'm in a better frame of mind.
Got this last night from DVDSoon and am really looking forward to seeing it. However, it didnt have any inserts/liner notes. The case was shrink-wrapped so am guessing it never had one.
Is this normal? With a film tipped to do well at the Oscars I would've thought some effort would have gone into producing a flyer of some thought.
no, just a single sheet with a whisky competition on it.
Also, the trailers at the start are *very* annoying. You can't chapter skip, or jump to the menu - you have to FF them, which is a pain in the backside.
I got mine yesterday from DVD Soon and it was also shrink wrapped with no insert.
Fortunately, the film itself is superb. It's the best performance I've seen of Bill Murray's who shows remarkable restraint and I really hope he gets the oscar. For a low(ish) budget shoot it, the production values are high with great cinematography.
Sophia Coppola looks like she could follow her old man by becoming a great director (I just hope she dosn't go off the rails like he did!)
I think it's definitely one which will improve with each viewing.
my copy has been dispatched now..should get in within the next week... 8o)
Saw it yesterday, and I thought it was a very nice film, and having traveled a lot with work, can totally relate to the relationship struck up!
But yes beautifully shot, and well scripted!
I Liked the film, a bit slow at first but what did Bill say to the girl right at the end ?
There's no subtitles for it on the dvd but I found the following on imdb.com:
In the final moments of the film Bill Murray whispers something into Scarlett Johansson's ear. This moment was improvised, as was the whole scene. It is possible to discern that he whispers, "I'll always remember the past few days with you... Don't part mad, tell him the truth, okay?"
The whole point is that you're not supposed to know what he is saying to her.
thtas what I thought. absolutely fantastic movie by the way
It was show the other night on Film 4, no doubt it will be repeated shortly.
Am I the only person who can not stand this film. I really didn't like it at all.
Well I thought it was a good film (7/10) but not excellent. The first hour was captivating and the imagary and of japanese culture was shot very well. The second half - the romantic bond between the two main characters was too pretentious IMO. Overrated- I think!!
I enjoyed it purely as a 'fly-on-the-wall celebrity travel documentary/reality show'.
Does this mean she was going to split with her hubby?
The first time I saw the film, I didn't really know what to expect. Now I've seen it a few times and absolutely love it. I don't currently own a copy (my viewings have been of "alternate origin"), but I have decided that I'll definitely buy it. One can find the basic DVD quite cheap these days. However, I wonder if this is the version to get or if there'll soon be a special edition or high-def version of it. Heard anything?
Another for this movie. That rarity these days, a movie for grown ups.
Don't know if the studios will rush to release movies like this on Hi Def, at least initially. Judging from the early releases they are focusing predominamtly on crash-boom-bang. I mean, who wants Lost in Translation when you can have the likes of Aeon Flux, Ultraviolet and Van Helsing?
Agreed - one of my top 20 movies (probably in the top 10 somewhere).
I'd give it 0 out of 10. Mainly because I could have made it myself in a couple of days, without putting any effort, or script into it.
Let me guess - the picture was brown...
Go on then, what cinematic triumphs have you created in the past that lead you to this conclusion?
