I'll consider it. Might have to wait to DVD.

I haven't seen There Will Be Blood yet but a friend of mine who somehow got his hand on an Academy DVD screener copy is supposed to be sending it as a birthday present so I'll post my thoughts on it once that occurs.

I really liked Hard Eight and Boogie Nights.  I thought that Magnolia was good though the last act kind of hurts it and I'm still undecided on what I think about Punch Drunk Love so hopefully There Will Blood is somewhat of a rebound for Paul T. Anderson.

***1/2 out of ****.

The ending went on a scene too long right at the end and it would have been a lot more powerful to have ended the movie prior to that scene IMO. So I have to knock a half star off.

But it's still a great movie that everyone should check out!  Thumbup

My thoughts exactly. On reflection I did understand that most of the scenes at the end did have meaning. However I do feel that the flow was all off. It really gave you the feeling of being cutoff. I do understand that a movie does not have to be all nice and pretty with a bow at the end.... Trust me, I am not an American Cookie Cutter Film type. I love movies that aren't the norm... and this is one of those. So, I respect it and enjoyed it.
