    So... was this a good movie? Because I watched it last night, and I really dont know. I laughed a lot... but by the end I had no clue whether I enjoyed it or not. Maybe it would have made more sense had I been stoned.

    Your take?

    I felt the first 1/3 of the movie was a little slow but once it got going it was great. It's a Cohen Brothers movie so it's definitely and acquired taste.

    I'd say it's about a 7.5/10 for me

    I can see that happening. I still love J.K. Simmons part in the movie.

    CIA Superior: What did we learn, Palmer?
    CIA Officer: I don't know, sir.
    CIA Superior: I don't fuckin' know either. I guess we learned not to do it again.
    CIA Officer: Yes, sir.
    CIA Superior: I'm fucked if I know what we did.
    CIA Officer: Yes, sir, it's, uh, hard to say
    CIA Superior: Jesus Fucking Christ.

    If you watch it again and decide that you liked it, rent "No Country For Old Men" if you haven't seen it already.

    I would give it about the same rating. I enjoyed it, as quirky as it was. And that chair WAS awesome. :rofl:

    Agreed. I laughed when he showed up his finished product.

    I don't know if I laughed harder at the chair itself or the fact that he had it locked up like Fort Knox and under cover behind a fenced in compound/workshop in his own basement. I was wondering WTF he was welding when they first showed him working on it.
