Children of Men

Watched this movie the other night when I had nothing to do but sit around. I must say I really liked it. I tend to love movies set in the near future where the world is totally different just because there is a slight chance that stuff like this could happen (very slim chance).

The movie also reminded me of Half-Life 2 the video game, just because of all the rebels and city shooting.:D

I recommend it!

Children of Men is actually one of my favorite movies of the year for numerous reasons. If you watch the movie again, and pay attention to some of the scenes, it is just purely brilliantly geniously genuinely awesome. Just pay attention to how many 'cuts' there are in some of the scenes. You'd be surprised.

I really wanted to see this movie in theaters, but I never had the time. Now that I do, it's not in theaters :(

I added the movie to the top of my Netflix queue. Should be able to watch it this weekend :)

What do you mean by "cuts"?

If you watch it again, and pay close attention to some of the scenes, you'll notice that some of the scenes are actually one LONG continuous shot.
