    Just wondering if anyone has seen it? What you thought about it and if you liked it? I think it is one of the most different movies I have seen in a while.

    One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. I _really_ wanted to like it, but it just kept getting worse and worse:-|

    Not recommended at all.

    Did you understand any of it? I got most of it but it was definitely not my type of movie.

    I understood most of it, or at least I think I did?

    I admit I didn't get the main point of the movie...but I think thats because there wasn't one:-|

    I think that if the ending wasn't such a dud it might have saved the movie, but alas...it sucked.

    I'll probably watch is simply because of the extreme nature of the mixed reviews I've read. Maybe I'll watch it on acid.

    Good luck dude. It is a different movie. Maybe you'll understand it better than I did.

    Isn't it just about looking for the fountain of Youth, so they can live forever ? I have been looking for one myself.

    You would think that is what it would be about, but no it isn't.

    I am all for it if it has some good blood and gore, like Lord of the rings.

    You should try to develop a youth serum while you're finishing med school. ;)
